during my high school years, i would get a few acne here and here specially during that time of the month. then, in college, my acne seem to get somewhat worst. i used over the counter drug store skin care and spot treatment (clean and clear BP). the BP helped me for a while but after a few months, i feel like it was no longer working and gave up with treatment. then one day, my cousin came up to me and asked, "...why is your face like that". i did not know what to tell my cousin but at that point, i told myself, i have to do something. i consulted a dermatologist and was put on meds right away. every few months or so, my doctor will switch my meds and my acne slowly started clearing up . after a year or so, my doctor took me out of the med and i was advice to use cream/gel for spot treatment if i get a few spots during that time of the month. a few more months and i was able to control my acne but now, its coming back like there is no tomorrow. because i have tried over the counter drug store skin care, i searched for some home care regiments like lemon + honey, baking soda + powered oat + honey, honey + nutmeg, etc. i kept searching and searching for new ways to clear my acne and i stumbled upon a youtube video by shannon lei bruno and from there, i did my research about acne.org. tonight is my first time using the regiment. this is my last hope to a better and clear skin. i want to feel beautiful and confident about myself. i do not want to hind behind layers of makeup anymore.
