is December 27, 2014 and I'm already worried that my skin is going to be awful
on that day.
Let me start
by saying that I have had acne since I was 13 (now 23) and I honestly feel like
it has gotten worse since high school. My skin is oily/combination (it dries
out around my mouth and chin). I have literally tried everything. I have done
every drug store cleanser and lotion, department store products, and special
order products. I also went to the dermatologist a few times. It seems to me
like everything I use will work for a month or so and then my skin gets immune
to it and starts to act up again.
In the past
few months, it hasn't been quite so bad but is now starting to seem like it is
going to break out. I am currently using Neutrogena Cleansing Gel (you know the
orange liquid stuff) and the Clinque Dramatically Different Gel morning and
night. I also exfoliate a couple of times a week with St. Ives Blemish Control
(I know you should only do it once a week but I would do it every day if it
didn't cause my skin to produce too much oil). The foundation I have been using
is Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation, which I do like because I can use it
in Winter and Summer without it being too oily.
suggestions would be useful. I'm trying to get a jumpstart on this now so that
by my wedding I may have a successful skin care regimen.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
