How I Try To Get Rid of My Acne
Hi Beautiful People,
Today, I’m going to talk about my process of trying to get rid of my acne.
Ever since I was 13 years old, I am dealing with acne. It’s horrible, it really affected my self-esteem, it still does sometimes. I have gone to the dermatologist when I was 15-16 years old and I was prescribed a lotion. I had to put this daily on my acne spots and after a few months, my acne was gone. I did get a few pimples every now and then. Then, 4 years ago, I moved from Germany to California and I started to break out a little bit.
With no health insurance, I went to see a dermatologist and got a lotion prescribed that I used. By the way, it was 100$! I didn’t see any changes, so I stopped using this crème and my skin got eventually better. A few months ago, maybe 4 months ago, I started to break out again. I wasn’t sure why, so I looked through my make up things. I really thought it was my ELF powder that I bought for a dollar because that was all I used on my face. I threw it away and waited for my acne to go away. Unfortunately, it got worse. I was really frustrated and stressed, which didn’t help at all, but rather made it EVEN WORSE!
From what I learned about acne, it could be because of:
- Bad diet.
- Not washing your face.
- A product you use.
- Due to hormone changes.
- Clogged pores.
- Oily skin.
- Touching your face with dirty fingers.
I was thinking to myself what causes MY ACNE. I figured that I had a little bit of everything I listed above. I started to eat healthy, tried not to stress anymore, and started to wash my face every night. It’s really hard NOT to stress when you have so much going on in your life.
Anyway, I am now seeing results. I never really ate fruits and vegetables before, but I had to change if I wanted my skin to look nice. I am eating an apple everyday and sometimes a banana or some other vegetable. I try to distract myself, so I don’t have time to stress or be depressed.
Four weeks ago, I started to use this lotion/crème from the dermatologist. It really dried out my skin, but that is the process of getting rid of all the dirt and the acne. My skin peeled so bad I never looked worse in my life! I heard that you’re not allowed to put any other face lotion on, but I did, I had to. My face was peeling like crazy! I wish I had a picture of how my face looked like not too long ago, but I don’t.
My face now looks so much better, unfortunately I am left with a lot of scars, I wish and pray to go away in the future. I get pimples sometimes when I eat too much chocolate, but chocholate ON YOUR FACE is amazing for your skin, but slowly, my face is getting better and better.
My personal tip for you to get rid of your acne is that eat healthy and drink a lot of water. Try not eating foods that are oily because it can cause acne. Make sure to wash your face every night and every morning. Do not touch your face. I do that all the time and I pick on my face without even knowing. Its really bad because our fingers are not the cleanest at all times. If you notice that your acne gets worse after using a new product, immediately stop using this product. DON’T STRESS! It just makes everything worse I promise. If all this doesn’t help in getting rid of your acne, please see a dermatologist.
I really hope this article helped a lot of people out here. Thank you for taking your time and reading my personal experience with acne.
