Hey Skin, We Need to Talk…

(Update as of 09/09/2016: I have started using Rodan and Fields Unblemish and am currently on week 3 and will keep you posted on the results!)

The Struggle

So, I’m in my late 20’s and I’m struggling with mild adult acne…well sometimes mild. I don’t get it. I literally can’t control my skin. I have used so many different products, as well as changing my diet.Β  I wash my face daily and I always make sure to take my makeup off before bed or before/after the gym. I also try to go as long as possible without putting any makeup on.

Stop That

My skin wasn’t this bad when I was a teenager. It’s so unnerving. I remember it being such a big deal in High School. “Oh my gosh, I hope no one stares at my giant pimple!” or “there’s no way I’m going to school today with this thing on my face!”Β  I remember those days…

It doesn’t bother me as bad as it use to or so I thought (I guess I wouldn’t be writing this if it didn’t)….It just keeps getting worse. I’ve been to a dermatologist and lost all hope once my face got scarred from the doc. So I gave up.


The List

Here is the list of products I’ve tried:

  • Dermatologist (prescription meds)
  • Neutrogena
  • Clean and Clear
  • Aveeno
  • Dermalogica*
  • Proactiv
  • Boots No. 12
  • Ulta Face Line
  • Mac Face line
  • Philosophy
  • Clinque
  • Murad

So…here is the short list.Β  The only real results I’ve had was dermalogica but on the flip side of that, I swear my skin gets use to products…anyway, that lasted a few months.

Help

So here I am reaching out to this wonderful community! Any suggestions? Prayers? Haha! What has or hasn’t worked for you?
