Let me tell you that acne is normal and you shouldn’t be ashamed of it. I know it can totally kill your self esteem. Your body is simply growing. Don’t let it lower your self confidence. I’ve had it most of my teenage years but now I can say that I don’t have to deal with it quite as often. I do occasionally break out but nothing like I used too. I’ve seen numerous dermatologists and I’ve tried everything from drug store products to prescribed topical gels, but nothing worked. It was honestly up to my self to figure out how to get rid of it. Now, I’m no doctor but I do know a lot about the skin due to plenty of research I would make on the internet and reading plenty of books. It wasn’t until I went to see my family physician, who is an amazing doctor that prescribed me Clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide topical gel. I can’t even express how much it changed my life, I have never seen my skin look so clear.
Another thing that help me so much was fish oil supplements, everyday I take two. One in the morning and one before bed. They have amazing benifits to your skin, hair and even your cardiovascular health.
Now if you have mild acne drug store products are good enough. If your acne is moderate to severe or even cystic acne then I would recommend seeing a board certified dermatologist. However if you do get a drug store face wash make sure it contains benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. If you are someone who is dealing with acne just know it’s okay and it’s totally normal. Trust me it will get better!❤️
