  1. Hey guys just wanted to let you know my next step of research for skin! My acne has improved tremendously. I think Its because of taking yaz! I still will get 1 or 2 pimples on my cheeks every other week, which is not a big deal. My only struggle is the scars right now! So, I decided to go see an esthetican and try some microdermabrasion! I will let you know how that goes! ***Also, I am 100% possitive that smoking causes acne problems. I really want to quit, but everytime I try I
  2. Haven't updated in a while about my skin because I have been waiting to see my results. Since being on my new birth control (yaz), I have actually not had anymore bad break outs. I am almost completely weaned off from my doxy meds (thank god). My skin seems to be doing a lot better. I will only get a few pimples here and there. My main issue is the scars on my cheeks. I am looking into getting microdermabraision to help with that. I also plan to never go back to my dermatologist again!!!! My
  3. I actually went the vapor cig route and I liked it...but I started breaking out really badly around the time I did that. I thought the oils that I used were clogging my pores. What kind do you use? How much did your skin improve after you quit cigarettes?
  4. I have naturally olive skin so I tan really easily! and I am going to the beach in a few days so I am nervous about how my skin will react (especially being on Doxy)
  5. I discovered this new treatment for acne! I am not sure if it is just a quick fix, or if it will completely get rid of everything for good! At many tanning beds they are offering red light therapy! It's actually amazing because it only takes 20 minutes and your zits are almost going away! You have to go multiple times for it to look 100% better, and its kind of expensive. I am lucky to have parents that are willing to help me out financially with my skin problems because they know how much I am
  6. My skin was looking pretty good until this morning I decided to lay out for 15 minutes! ughh it just made my patches even more red!!! dang it! I have a few whitehead/pimples still that I am trying to get rid of. I thought laying out would help dry them out quicker! My skin is looking much better except for all the scarring and red spots!!! It looks like I still have acne but they are just those stupid spots that wont go away on my cheek. ((( I want these pimples to go away ASAP I onl
  7. YAYYYYYY! I got my Paragard IUD removed today because I believe it has been causing my acne inflamation. I honestly think it has already helped my skin because yesterday I had a huge inflamation on my forehead, and it has already gone down a lot. My skin actually looks a little bit better today...I will update on how it goes after a couple of weeks. I really don't want to be without any birth control because I cannot get pregnant right now haha! So my doc perscribed me to YAZ- which is also
  8. I have not updated on this blog in a while because I have been waiting to see results... So far, my face is slowlyyyyyyyy getting better. My regimen (because a few have been asking) is: Of course washing my face twice a day w/ cetaphil OR Benzoyl Peroxide face wash 10% (even though its a little strong), but it has worked really well for me because my chest and back is completely clear from it!!! It seems to help my face a lot too. I swap everday with acanya gel or retinA on my zits.
  9. SERIOUSLY ANGRY ABOUT MY SKIN. This regimen has done nothing but make my skin wayyyyyy tooo dryyyyy. It literally looks like leather. And just when I thought my acne was clearing up....THREE HUGE ONES ARE ABOUT TO APPEAR. ONE ON EACH CHEEK AND FOREHEAD. Nothing is fucking working. I am ready to give up. No matter how hard I try I cannot get rid of this horrible shit. I know vanity isn't everything, but everytime I look in the mirror I just want to cry. I feel so ugly and disgusting. I lo
  10. Yay! Thanks everyone! I can't wait to try some of these products. I love how awesome some of the elf products are because they are so cheap! I am going to the beach in three weeks with my friends and my crush is coming too! My goal is to getting my skin looking presentable without make up by then! We will see....
  11. This new topic is going to be about makeup... I am somewhat of a girly girl. So naturally, I obsess with having good hair, makeup, and clothes. I cannot help it, I am just really into all that kind of stuff...it's just what I like. I am pretty sure that wearing makeup is one of the reasons I have bad skin. I love it, and I used to wear it almost every single day. However, I almost never go a day without washing my face. I have not really worn any makeup lately, due to trying to ge
  12. Thanks for your response! I have been slowly trying to make some changes to my diet- I was not a horrible eater before...but I am trying to stay away from processed foods and dairy. I eat mostly organic and fresh food. My biggest challenge is all the carbs, and I am slowly trying to eliminate them. It's hard when you live in a household of five people, and everyone wants to eat something different...and does not care about making healthy choices.
  13. Hey Y'all! My name is Kendall & I have struggled with acne off and on since I was 15. When I first started having breakouts, they were just minor on my forehead- yet ugly and noticeable. I became pregnant at a younger age and had my daughter (age 17)- during that time my skin was in tip top shape and beautiful! Ughhhhh I miss those days. It wasn't until about a year that I started to have horrible breakouts. I went to the doctor and they prescribed my some antibiotics, because they
