Praying My Skin Heals Tonight



I'm in Chicago this weekend to visit my Dad, and I really want to be the real me--the one who loves to be social and be out and about. It's very hard to be that person with a lot of active acne/ acne marks.

But, for my dad, I'm going to try my very best. I am hoping that with drinking more water tonight, taking my multi-vitamin, and eating some more veggies, I can give my skin what it needs to heal a lot overnight.

Right now I have 1 red mark (from a deeper pore that purged on my left cheek), and a couple of pink marks on my left jawline, and a couple of pink marks on my right jawline, and one on my chin.

Please, please say a small prayer for me that my skin heals up and that this regimen continues to clear it. I have struggled with this for so long, and such a long list of other more major medical problems for the past 15 years, and I really just want to feel confident and beautiful at 23-years-old.

Hey Hope!,

You are really strong for sharing your story. I hope your skin does clear up. I noticed that you said you take multivitamins. Believe it or not, your multi-vitamins can be a cause of your acne. Most of those vitamins have biotin, iodine, and soy.

Even though biotin does aid in hair and nail growth it can also aggravate acne. Iodine also irritates follicles leading to break outs. Hope this helps.
