I’m actually not sure if I’m just imagining it, but I think my skin HAS been looking better recently. I’ve had acne my entire life, literally since I was about four years old (because of a hormonal… thing… I was going through) so when my friends want to talk about bad skin I’m always like “Honey you don’t even KNOW.”
But, anyway, my back and chest haven’t been that bad and my face looks great. Of course there’s lots of lingering scarring and stretch marks and pores and gahhh my skin really is just, not good. Hopefully diet and my birth control will help balance out the acne and I’m trying to remember to moisturize once in a while… The scarring’s pretty okay, too, I think even the worst of it you’d have to be actively looking for it to see it, but, I worry about these things. I’ve never had nice skin—well, I know it’s bad, because I’ve seen it up close and have to live with it—and I’d like that to change.
On a semi- related note, I am very, very thirsty tonight… 3 weeks ago

How I did it: I spoke to a professional who told me to wash my face twice a day -morning and evening. This alone made a huge difference.
I then started using UV protection moisturiser, which is ESSENTIAL if you want your skin to look great when you're older too.
I use a moderate amount of makeup to disguise imperfections which made a significant improvement to my appearance. A blemish shouldn't ruin your appearance.
I started drinking more water and exercising more. Washing my face after exercising is very important to stop pores blocking.
Using an exfoliating glove on my body made it smoother and avoided blocked pores.
using an overnight moisturiser to replenish my skin was great.
Eating home grown veg and local fruit probably helped as well. Read how I did it… 17 months ago
I was it once a day with a gentle face wash, usually in the shower, and this cleans away the excess grease and makes it look very nice, although I still get blemishes which I attack with a blemish stick. The more I excercise the happier my skin feels and drinking more water as a result of this exercise makes it even nicer. I’m currently on a diet so most of my food consists of veggies, and some fruit which I think is also helping. I get spots only when I’m overtired or not doing enough exercise, or drinking too much. 21 months ago
