So I just typed this long essay looking like blog entry and turns out i wasn't signed in so it deleted the whole thing. That was a bummer but I'll TRY and keep it short and sweet. Hi, my names Gia and I'm 14. I've been struggling with acne since the 3rd grade and I'm now in the 9th grade. Its a battle I've been fighting for my whole life and something needed to be done. I'm not gonna go into my whole sob story because this blog is not about that.
My acne I would say is mild-moderate. It gets very bad when I'm on my period and is very hard to get rid of. I get cystic ones that are underneath the skin and only time is what gets rid of them. Everyday at least I have 10 on my face and once i get rid of one there's a new one in its place. I've tried pretty much everything on the market and prescriptions from the derm. None if which my skin agrees with.
4th-8th grade was the worst its ever been. Even my family would comment on my face and how bad it was. Which was hard. Now in the 9th grade its died down just a bit but it flares up a ton when its that time of the month. It traveled down to my back and chest which is only getting worse.
NOW, what you've been wanting to hear I'm sure. I'm starting this process as of tomorrow Jan. 1, 2016. It came in the mail today along with prescription moisturizer but I wanted to wait until tomorrow so I can have a fresh start. "New year, New me" right? hahahahahah ok i'm done. Anyway I will also be updating you at the end of every week. Also will be uploading pictures of the before and after at the end of this 5-month long process. I hope this blog helps me and whoever is reading this in some way. I hope to see feedback and tips from people!
