I thought it would be helpful to write a bit of background information about my struggle with acne.

I am 21 years old and have suffered with acne since I was about 11 years old. It has become significantly worse since about the age of 16. Recently I have been suffering with lots of small spots around the jawline and chin area which can be very painful.

i have tried a number of products in an attempt to clear up my skin but to be honest it's like a rollercoaster they go up and down over different periods of time.... I have tried a number of contraceptive pills, gels, creams, face washes and different cosmetic ranges but any improvement unfortunately seems to be short term and then the spots return and I'm back to square one.

Recently I have noticed my acne has been worse than ever and so I decided it was time to go back to the doctors and try something new. I have been prescribed a cream called                      
Adapalene (Differin) and some antibiotics which are Lymecycline. Over the next few weeks I will be documenting my experience of these medicines and the effect they are having on my skin....  fingers crossed !!!!
