Hello lovelies, it is finally time for one of the most requested posts I have ever gotten! I have mentioned my skin problems a couple of times and since I have gotten an overwhelming amount of request from you lovelies to write more about it and especially to share what I have done to make it better, so I thought it was about time that I wrote a full post on it.
As a teenager I struggled with problem skin, but I went on the pill (a special brand to deal with acne) and while I was on it I seriously had the perfect skin (hence the picture above, haha this is my goal, this is what I want to get back to and I am slowly, but surely getting there). However, last year I decided to stop on the pill since I just wasn’t comfortable filling my body with all those hormones anymore. When I stopped my skin slowly got worse and worse and eventually it just went absolutely crazy, I had so many breakouts on both my face (especially my jawline and hairline), chest and back/shoulders. It was so bad, way worse than it had ever been and my face was just covered in pimples, painful cysts and my skin was all bumpy – yees it was all very lovely, stupid hormones.. Sadly I do not have a picture of my skin when it was really bad because I seriously never take pictures of myself (I am super awkward and camera shy, these two pictures of me are pretty much the only selfies I have taken in the last year) and I never planned to make a post about this until a lot of you started asking for it last month and by then my skin were already starting to be breakout free after many months of changed habits, new routines and different ways to treat it. My skin is not in any way perfect now, but it’s a million times better and I feel like I am finally getting it back under control and so I would like to share some of the things I have done to make it better, hopefully some of you will find it helpful.
This post is just based on my personal experience and what I have found to be working for me, I am not an expert or anything of the sort and what has worked for me, may not work for you and your skin. However, I really hope that this can help some of you that are in a similar situation as I was in, it is horrible to deal with problem skin and acne, it just kills ones confidence :(
This post is way longer than I planned, so I didn’t write as much about everything as I would have liked to, but feel free to leave a comment and ask if there is something you are wondering about or would like me to explain in more detail :)
