Acne Ruined Me
Dec 27, 2014
Being the healthiest person you could ever imagine I take such great care of myself and I just don't get why I have acne. I workout every single day and I don't party at all. I used to go out every day and be with friends but over time my skin has made me push away from literally everyone in my life. My friends, classmates, parents. I've tried topical creams, talked to multiple dermatologists. I've tried antibiotics and other pills but i refuse to try birth control or accutane(like I said I'm a health freak and those pills are known to do more harm than good). I just had a micropeel done but I honestly don't see any difference or atleast barely(my skin is a little smoother). I still break out like almost every day and I don't get why. I eat citrus fruits for vitamin c every day, I drink ginger and turmeric tea each night, I eat sooo many veggies(broccoli, tomatoes, cauliflower, kale) and fruits (bananas, strawberries, apples) each and every day making sure I get all the vitamins my body needs. I wear sunscreen and I don't tan. I change my pillowcase every 2 days. What else could I possibly do???!?!! I have an appointment in a week for my first laser acne treatment but I'm literally starting to breakdown as I'm terrified that this won't work either! I have 5 or 6 of the treatments scheduled and I just really hope they work because I have no idea what else I could do. I'm tired of putting creams on my face I just wish I had clear skin on my face just as I do on the rest of my body. I'm tired of my mom telling me to "just cover it with makeup" I don't want to cover anything up! I don't want to hide anything. I refuse to wear makeup and while it does make me more selfconscious I don't really care bc I know it will make me appreciate people who don't judge me for my skin!
