What I Did

TrueSomebody

412 views

Golly, I would be lying if I said it was easy, but it was worth it. I had to really change my lifestyle, but it was for the better. 

Eating Habits 

  • COMPLETELY cut out soda and any sugary drink (occasional orange juice) 
  • COMPLETELY cut out dairy (almost, i love milk and cheese) lol 
  • COMPLETELY cut out frozen foods 
  • COMPLETELY cut out desserts 

Daily Routine 
  1. Wash face with Clean and Clear 10% benzol peroxide wash  (morning)
  2. Apply Neutrogena 2.5% benzol peroxide vanishing cream  (morning)
  3. Apply Neutrogena Sport Face 70 spf sunscreen (morning) 
  4. Wash face with Clean and Clear 10% benzol peroxide wash  (bedtime) 
  5. Apply Neutrogena 2.5% benzol peroxide vanishing cream  (bedtime) 
  6. Apply Differin Adpaline 0.1% gel (bedtime) 

My skin is VERY oily and this really dried it out so be cautious. I followed my routine and only missed maybe 3 or so days out of the year and I rarely broke my new eating plan.
I know this is a short blog but I just wanted to make a quick post to inspire people not to give up. My acne was horrible, it ruined my self-esteem and confidence, it was a mental problem just as much as it was a physical. But after clearing it all up, it felt like my life was changed.


If this blog gets attention I will most definitely post my full journey with pics and descriptions of what happened each month.

Why no frozen foods? freezing doesn't alter the foods nutritional value, often it preserves it. Interested as to why?

Tbh I can't say exactly why, but there where certain foods that caused breakouts for me and most frozen foods made my acne worse. I wasn't willing to take any chances so I just cut them off completely.
