Struggling with acne?

6:21 pm 0 Comments

Hello dearies!
Your girl is back after a looong break! Its been a while, but even at that now, we are going to take it one day at a time, as the Lord directs. How have you been? I would really love to know who and who has been reading or has been patient with me, kindly drop a comment, God bless you.

I've been struggling with acne for a few years now, it started all of a sudden in 2015. Before then, I had very smooth face/skin without any issues at all. I cant really tell what triggered it, but I know for sure it wasnt my diet, contrary to what my doctor told me, because I was eating very healthy. It started all of a sudden and up till recently it has been a struggle with spots and bumps to fight every month, especially during my monthly cycle.

I have tried all sorts of things plus plenty therapy/seeing the dematologist. Once after I saw the demertologist, I saw improvements after I followed the very tedious routine. It worked for a few weeks, the redness and bumps cleared but left a lot of spots behind. Once I stopped the doctors treatment, the acne came back, so I tried many other htings, but I never consistent.

Recently, I personally decided to be more delibrate and thereby focus on a routine. Here's what I did and still do:

  1. I wash my face with a clarifying soap, morning and night.
  2. I use vovi mild toner afterwards.
  3. I then I use 'clean and clear persa-gel 10' topical acne lotion.
  4. I stopped using makeup daily
  5. I take at least 2500mg of Biotin daily. I take the chewable kind.(I'll review this later)
  6. I tie my hair to sleep. (Oils from the hair, when transfered to the pillow increases the chances of acne to reoccur)
I've been doing these 4 things above since July, and seen loads of difference since. See my pictures below.

See how most of the the spots are gone?! Lol

There is definately progress, better than I've seen in a long while. Even after my period came this month, I only had 2 small acne bumps on my face which quickly went away. I will keep up with the routine and see how it  turns out months from now. I just felt like I should share this with you guys for those who are going through the same issues. Do you ahev acne problems? I speak healing and wisdom into your life in Jesus name, amen.

Take care, thanks for reading and God bless you.
