ok.. i've never written a blog before but i've decided to write one as acne became such a big part of my life (sadly) that i just need to write about it!
just abit of background of myself - i'm 30 and had perfect skin all the way up till about 2 years ago... i never had to care about what i eat or what i put on my face and i never had to wear any make up.. i'll get a lot of comments about how i can keep my skin in such great condition. then for the last 2 years i've broke up horribly, i think i can relate that to work stress but now that i'm not as stressed the acne is not stopping. i am depressed, and everytime i look at the mirror i want to cry - the used to be perfect/pore-less skin is now all swollen with red marks/acne on my cheeks and a lot of my chin.
i've been to two dermatologists and tried out various antibiotics but didn't work, i didn't want to go on stronger pills because i'm trying to conceive and didn't want to risk it. the redder my face with acne scars and bumps is, the more foundation i had to put on my face (i can NEVER go to work without foundation coz it's just going to scare everyone away!), the worse it gets...
so now i'm starting a blog - to track my use of natural remedies to see if it works for me. i've seen a lot of good comments about acv, lemon juice, honey, baking soda etc etc so i'm going to give it a try.
i've actually been drinking acv for a week and a half now, been using baking soda to wash my face for 2 weeks, and had been using eggwhite + lemon juice mask for 3 nights. So far, no results. i've also been drinking SO Much more water (i had to like pee so often) but still i have huge acnes on my left hand side of the cheek and new ones on my chin.
will give this regimen a try for a month or so and see if this works!
