Update 12/04/05

Hmm, I haven't been on here in a while. Time for a new picture! Yay!

As you can tell, I'm getting over a breakout... *blah* But I'm pretty sure it's from all that halloween candy I ate in October, and that eggnog that keeps taunting me from our refrigerator... lol

Luckily for me, I've found some new techniques that seem to be helping. I bought a facial cleaning brush that's doing a much better job of exfoliating my face than my hand or washcloth ever did. I've noticed that my face is a lot less oily afterwards, and seems to stay that way longer. I've been using neosporin on my face before bedtime which should be helping with scars, and I'm using BP gel to attempt to dry up new spots.

As far as my diet goes, I've found that eating highly sugary foods will give me a killer breakout. So I've been trying to avoid any sodas, candy, eggnog, pie, ice cream, cereal, etc... That and trying to eat more healthy stuff like salads, grapes, cashews, and drinking lotsa water!

So, my goal is to try and clear up as much as a I can before Christmas. I know I can do it!

Keep on fighting, and don't give up!

    No offence man, but you seriously need to get on accutane, the sooner you get on it the sooner you'll be off it. I been on it for like 4 months now, time flys man, and now im basically clear, i got like 1 pimple i think, and thats on my shoulder.

    I was looking at a photo of you from 2004 and there hasnt been significant improvement, am I wrong? is it alot of scarring more than active acne? id so go on the tane if your not already. I wouldnt bother with an exfoliant, doesnt it just irritate your skin more?

    My advice eat up all the accutane you can, then 4 to 5 months and you will be clear as. Not worth having to think about your face and also you gotta watch out 4 scarring thats bad the longer you have acne the more scars you will be accumulating
