i’ve never had flawless skin. as a baby, of course. but as soon as i hit puberty, my face and body began flowing with acne. ugh !
so, i would try everything, and nothing truly worked, because i was going about it all wrong.
now that i’m into holistic health, i’ve taken a natural approach to my skin, and it’s helped dramatically ! now that i’m in a process of cleansing, my skin does break out every now and then to release those toxins, but i’ve been using lots of tea tree, aloe, and lemon juice to combat that. tea tree is an awesome antibacterial/inflammation agent, aloe is moisturizing, soothing, anti-microbial, and great for scarring. Lemon juice is pretty much like a bleach, i’m using it to fade these horrible scars.
i plan to do MORE by taking supplements (which ones!), doing healing visualizations, meditation/yoga, and massage. also most importantly, my diet. but i got that !

Having flawless skin would just make me feel so much more confident! :) 4 years ago
I think I’m pretty lucky to have very few facial blemishes, but their are soooo many zits on my hairline! I went to the doctor and they told me to use triple antibiotic every night for a week or until it’s gone. I’ve been using it for 4 days and it’s a little better. Also, their are huge grey bags under my eyes and people say to use a cheesecloth and potato so I’m going to try that. 6 years ago
I used to use a lot of products on my skin but I went away on holiday last summer and forgot to use them. I came back and don’t use anything anymore since my skin has cleared up, and it seems to be staying that way =) 6 years ago
well i’m going to try chemical peels. i found some on ebay for a decent price. i’m somewhat wary about the after effects though.. with the skin peeling and what not. but supposedly they have amazing results. and i’m so ready for perfect skin! hoping and praying this shit works.
got the chemical peels, tried the glycolic acid peel… made my skin burn pretty bad and frost up like a tca peel does. i did the peel on tues night and i have had redness on the areas i did the peel, like a sunburn. i noticed the redness has somewhat lightened up but i’m still freaking out. glycolic peels are not supposed to make your skin frost up or turn red or burn etc. i am just praying and praying to god my skin will go back to normal and not stay red. my skin is EXTREMELY dry and right now the skin is flaking off. well my advice to anyone and everyone is DON’T EVER DO A CHEMICAL PEEL! if you must have one then let a professional do it, there is a reason why they cost over $100. don’t risk fucking up and having your face look 10 times worse than before. now i am waiting for my face to heal… it really sucks too because on thanksgiving my boyfriend wanted me to go to his house to hang out and eat, plus meet some of his family from ny. but i told him no way look at my face i can’t go anywhere. ugh it sucked so bad, i don’t want to go anywhere out in public till this shit heals, it looks like i have a skin rash/disease or some shit. YUCK. i bought a neutrogena microdermabrasion kit at walmart earlier though, i heard microdermabrasion is amazing and there is no healing time or anything. now i just have to wait until my face heals before i can use it. grrr… i’m impatient. 6 years ago
GRRRR. i don’t know what to do anymore.. my skin is such a pain in the ass. i swear i think i have the worst skin ever. i still have some scars from acne back when i was 13 or 14, and now i’m breaking out with actual zits. and its not just on my face, i have started to break out on my shoulders as well. i wash my face 2 or 3 times a day and my shoulders as well but they still won’t stop breaking out. i’m soooo frustrated. i’m about to buy some Proactiv.
