From Perfect Skin to Not Perfect Skin, What happened?

Recommended Posts

When I was younger I had perfect skin I could even go days without a shower or bath and my skin and hair would still look good. 

But now I pretty much have to have a shower every morning because I wake up with an oily  face and my hair is a mess (It's short hair). Currently I have been using Proactiv for a month and I think my skin has gotten better so I'm going to use it for another month see how it goes.

I do go to sleep around 4-5am and wake up an 3-4pm, I could exercise more and eat more healthy would it help if I fixed all that? Acne doesn't run in the family my brothers and sisters don't have acne and they dont use any face creams/products. Is it just my life style i need to change? 

My face isn't that bad but enough so its annoying me and my back is pretty bad even though I shower every day. 

Thanks All

Hey, I understand your frustration!

how old are you may I ask? If you're under 18, it's mainly hormonal. 

The pro-active could also be making your skin produce more oil. Pro-active is useless, I think the acne.org regime will work better! 


Hi, I'm just about to turn 20 and I did look at the acne.org cream but I'm in UK and with the delivery added it was quite expensive and looked like it would take a while before being delivered. :(

Your sleep schedule could definitely be worsening your acne, mine freaks out if I go to bed later than twelve. I think it has to do with liver cleansing times, which occur mostly at night (1am and 3am, respectively) If the liver isn't able to detoxify properly, acne can result. I think it also messes with hormones to go to bed so late. It sounds like you're probably not getting enough sun with that schedule either, do you take any vitamin D? A lot of people find supplementation with that (by way of about 5000UI's) cuts back on oil and acne.

So Iv'e been using Proactiv for over 2 months now and my skin is a lot better after using it when I get up and before I got to bed but Im starting to get dry and irritated skin. So I'm now using it once a day but can anyone help me with something, my chin even though it is clear is oily but sort of dry or flaky an the same time? Im not sure how to explain it what causes this?

Proactiv is not good at all, would not suggest anyone to use it.

Being a girl who is just getting through that phase, I can related. I use to have perfect skin and once puberty hit me I broke out...BIG TIME. So if you're a teenager going through that phase right now, I would not worry about. I would just suggest you beginning to tend to you skin more.  Being an teenager that is eager to get rid of pimples, I've tried every single product I can find. The best solution to ameliorate this situation is to go natural. When I used Lush's face wash (herbalism), my skin cleared up big time. It is a bit price but the face mask will last you a while so it's definitely worth it. I will link it below. I know also may not seem necessary to moisturise when you break out cause your skin is clogged with dirt and oil (thus creating pimples), it is important to moisturise with a light moisturiser at night and sunscreen in the morning to prevent your pimples from getting worst. Pimples will be with you until you turn around 18-ish but if it's still reoccurring after that age, I'd suggest you watch your health.
