nothing is working- acne wont go away

Recommended Posts

I’ve been trying everything to get rid of it. i’ve had these breakouts for a few months now and they never get bigger or smaller in size they just stay there no matter what products i try. i’ve been using glossier the solution, thayers witch hazel toner, clearsil face wash, the body shop tea tree oil daily solution ,and the ordinary rosehip seed oil. my dermatologist also prescribed me mino cycline 50mg twice a day and i’ve been on and off taking that for about a month (it makes me nauseous) and my skin seems to look the same. any suggestions of what i can do differently or what this may be caused by. 
its also worth mentioning i have hypothyroidism so it can very well be caused by that...i just want to know how i can make it go away. 
thank you so much :)

heyI just came across your post. I think you should check out acne face mapping. It's a super interesting concept of looking at acne. It's practiced by many Chinese practitioners and reflexologists across the world. They say your spots are linked to certain organs/parts of the body. So if you can understand what each breakout on particular parts of the face mean then your on your way towards a solution. I found this cool guide but I'm not sure if we can posts links here. There's a lot out there that can help you understand your skin and your acne and with this info make lifestyle changes that will benefit your skin.

Given it's not an exact science but I think it's way more effective than buying tons of products hoping they'll work. It's how I cured my acne. I stopped buying into drugstore products and took the simple natural route,. This way your skin doesn't become used to the products and they'll be much more effective. 

Looking at your pictures most of your acne seems to be occurring on the lower part of the face such as around the mouth and chin area. The chin and neck area are linked to hormonal breakouts. The lower part of chin is also connected to dental hygiene so try oil cleansing.

I hope this helps.

I want to help you because it sounds like we may have gone through a few of the same things. One thing that may be effecting your acne is your diet. Take a look at the things you eat and drink throughout the day. Try drinking a gallon of water every day and drinking only water. Sugary drinks and foods effected my skin heavily. Also if you drink or eat any dairy products, try taking a break from them. Dairy cows are treated with artificial hormones which can throw human hormone levels off significantly. Another key thing about our face is that it is very sensitive. I also had very oily skin and tried using a fragrance and oil free facial cleanser. It worked great but I started to see great results once I got a facial moisturizer with vitamin C or collagen. Another great stress reliever that could be a possible lead to your breakouts is the amount of exercise you are getting. Try excercising for 30 minutes a day and immediately after wash your face off with lukewarm water. This allows cell waste and toxins to escape your body. The number one is going to be your diet. Orange and yellow fruits vegetables are great for your skin so try digesting more of those. And once again try cutting out dairy products and saturated fat foods or drinks high in sugar. The second most important aspect is your skin routine. I used an exfoliating brush and this upped my game up heavily because it helped clean out all the toxins hiding in my pores. You also want to make sure your skin is hydrated so you want to get a skin sensitive facial moisturizer you apply after a facial cleanse. attached are the products I used that you can buy for cheap on Amazon. I really recommend trying these products and following the steps I told you above.
