Oh Snap, Like A Baby’s Butt!
I have had acne from a young age. I believe I was 11 years old, when I first began to break out. Believe me I have tried everything. I had so many different items I had to use from my dermatologist growing up. I felt like nothing worked, I slowly developed a bad habit of picking as well. Which with my tanned skin, the scars look like little bruises all over my face.
Right after I graduated high school my sister and I tried proactive. It really did work well, my skin cleared up. Then when we decided not to buy it anymore – my face went to hell. My problem areas were mostly my forehead and a little hear and there, on my chin or cheeks. But after proactive I broke out all over my face. Which developed in picking and a LOT more scarring.
Through the years I didn’t do anything with my face. I just let it be, and with more stress came more acne, and with more acne came more stress. I didn’t even wear makeup over it, because I just let go.
I came across the Acne.org site about a month ago I watched the video, even some customer review videos. The website is so educational, they sell there own items, or you can print out a product guide, of items you can purchase from any drug store. I thought, why not?!
I like that Dan (creator of the website) even made homemade youtube videos on how to use the products. I use the Aveeno clear complexion foaming cleanser – sometimes I’ll use an Aveeno light scrub as well, or I use CeraVe, which is very similar to Cetaphil.
I have seen such a huge difference with my acne, I don’t breakout very much. But now I just need to focus on getting rid of my scars. But I can live with that.
Have you had problems with acne? What’s your regimen like?
