so, remember waaaaay back in the day when i tried drinking water for a month to fix my acne?! well. no luck. so i FINALLY went to the dermatologist to fix this little huge problem. he gave me pills anddd gel. and {apparently} i pick at my face because i have lots of "marks" on it. i thought i was good about it, but clearlyyy i'm not because he busted me out. he says it's a slow "healing" process--so i'll keep you all updated! {stupid acne. and stupid lies about your face clearing as you got older-LIES}

{and don't be fooled--this face is covered with make up ;) }

anyone have acne tricks in case this doesn't work? or just better ways to take care of your face? i'd love to hear! I'll try anything!

yours truly,

i swear by Burts Bees tomato soap and on-the-spot treatment. it has worked for me for years. maybe it's worth a try! good luck! by the way, you are beautiful! xo

Gril, I am in the same boat. I'm 23 tomorrow and you'd think I would have problems anymore...more water is a good reminder for me though.

I use a retin A gel and a cream that is both an antibiotic and benzol peroxide. This combination has been helping. Who knew that acne was going to be a life- long problem?!?

I have always had acne! ugh! i HATE IT!! I was a lot worse when i was in high school. it has gotten a little better as i've gotten older but it is still there.

Have you tried Proactive? I used it when i was younger and it worked wonders. i've been swearing i'm going to buy it agin but i just haven't brought myself to buy it yet.

Also, a girl left a post on my blog one time about putting olive oil on her zits and she swears by it. i have not brought myself to try that though. Although, i do put olive oil on my hair a couple times a month.

I use to have bad breakouts in my early twenties. I heard good things about Cetaphil face wash and gave it a try. It has really helped clear up my skin, although I still get a few breakouts now and then. It is a soap free cleanser. You can get it at places like Target and Walmart.
