Acne Progress

24 Feb

For the past year, I have struggled with acne. At first, I assumed it was stress due to wedding planning. But it never went away. In January, I finally had enough and called a dermatologist. This is how I looked on Super Bowl Sunday:

Inflamed. Red. Breakouts all over my forehead and chin. My skin looked awful. I was embarrassed by it.

When I went to the dermatologist the first week of February, she prescribed me Doxycycline, Differin and SkinCeuticals clarifying cleanser:

It’s been about 3 weeks, and I’m starting to see some results:

I’m not as inflamed or as red! Is it healed? Not yet. But I have hope.

    I used proactive and that did wonders for me! I remember using Differin a few years ago and that worked well, too 🙂

      I tried Proactiv before the wedding, and it ate my face. I was peeling and flaky, but new spots were popping up. It was horrible!

      Its one of those products where you love it or hate it. There is no in between. It either works or it doesn’t! Glad it worked for you!

    That’s a big difference! I have crappy skin too, no acne but dry and flaky and discolored. I hate it!
