Day 0 (I'm starting Monday)



I have struggled with acne going on three years now and It's getting progressively worse. I have been to a dermatologist and am using two creams (Adapalene and Clindamyacin) but they just aren't quite doing the trick. I am also on birth control, but that's not helping. I have extremely sensative skin so products that contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, etc. usually end up making things worse. I also have very dry skin. It is difficult to find products that moisterize my skin but don't cause my acne to flare up. After searching around and trying various products I believe I've found one that's going to finally work. Say yes to carrots! There are different types of skincare products to target different acne problems and they are almost all natural so they're gentle on your skin. I am currently using the say yes to cucumber daily gel cleanser and night treatment and the say yes to grapefruit daily facial scrub (once a week) and the daily moisterizer. I'm also using pond's cold cream cleanser as a morning cleanser and as a gentle way to remove my makeup at the end of the night. I've taken many tests and evaluated my lifestyle and have come to the conclusion that my three main problems that are causing my acne are lack of sleep, not drinking enough water, and not using the right products. For the next three weeks I am going to challenge myself to drink 3 liters of water a day, get 8 hours of sleep a night, and stick to a new skincare regimen. Wish me luck! I will try and update daily to report whether my skin is clearing up or not :)
