OFFICIALLY ACNE FREE

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I'm not sure who, or if anyone will even see this but I really want to share my freaking TRANSFORMATION with others who are going through something similar. I will include photos for reference.

For the past 4-5 years I've had severe acne/blackheads/red marks and I missed out on a lot of life from hiding in my house. I went to several estheticians and dermatologists and it felt so hopeless to not see even the slightest results in my favor. I was helpless, it was endless. I have shed a lot of tears, I was constantly feeling shame. 

I tried EVERYTHING and as some of you know, it became quite expensive. Upwards of 6,000 in fact. Tretinoin, topical antibiotics, oral antibiotics, every vitamin, every natural resource possible, egg white masks, hormone balancers, freaking everything. I thought I must have had something wrong with me. It was a terrible feeling. 

My most recent facialist told me NO MORE OIL, so my first wave of success was just that:

#1. NO OIL

Oil free products aren't hard to find, and there are so many good ones!
Unfortunately I still was not as clear as I wanted to be, but it was better.

#2. NO SILICONE

I happened to come across a youtube video about some girl's struggle with acne. She mentioned that silicone was the culprit. Now, silicone comes in MANY different names, but if the word ends in
-CONE, run away. Dimethicone, trimethicone, etc. Run. RUN dude. 
Silicone is in EVERYTHING. Even powder. Ugh. Good luck finding ideal makeup. Thankfully some oil free & silicone makeup DOES exist. I'm currently using Juice Beauty Oil Free moisturizer and bare minerals makeup (but only the ones without silicone!!!!!) It is the enemy. 

The rest of the factors like water/healthy diet are obviously important too, but I just wanted to share that since I went silicone free, I have also become acne free.

Within three weeks, my acne was gone. 
I am free. 
I pray for those who still have it, it's one of the hardest things that I've ever been through.
