Enquiring Minds Want to Know...

Okay, it is time that I come clean about this. It has been bothering me for years. I am well aware that this is not a subject that is discussed, but whatever. As some of you may know I am 30, yes 30 years old. I am okay with that, as that is the least of my problems. My problem, yes that is what I wanted to discuss....

Why am I 30 years old and still suffering from acne?? What am I a pre-teen girl? Do others have this problem? I thought that once you hit a certain age that this would be something that would magically disappear, but why is this still here? It is so embarrassing to deal with this issue. I always feel like people are staring at the stuff on my face, and thinking, "O- bless her heart, I wonder how much concealer she is using today?"

Any tips? What products do you use? Do you just sit around drinking gallons of water? Do you bathe in vats of Clearasil? Give up the goat, I want to know your secrets!!

I know there are so many more important things to be worrying about... like: world hunger, Obama's health care plan, what am I going to make for dinner, what time is Sophia going to wake from her nap, is it time to switch the laundry over, ect.

I am probably making a mountain out of a mole hill, but just thought I would ask...

Love yal!

I started getting acne last year. I was eating healthy drinking lots of water and still couldn't figure out what was going on! So I went to a dermatologist and she prescribed "tazorac" the best stuff ever! It has helped so much and even removed old scars. She also told me to use "neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser". I will also use cetaphil moisturizer.

Oh and she told me to just use mineral make up. No liquid make up at all!

Ok, yes, I admit it, I'm in the same boat. It's so embarrassing! I just ordered proactive and started using it but it really burns my skin. I think I'm going to make an appt with the dermatologist once the weather improves.

Clinique Acne Solutions 3 Step System. I used ProActiv for years and my acne never really got much better. I am 31. I just switched to Clinique a few months ago and my skin has definitely improved. I just changed to their Clarifying Foundation (I think that is what it's called) and I think that is helping too. Good luck.

I, too, suffer around "that time of month" with about 1 or 2 giant sized things on my face. It is awful, I just want to stay in bed and not even bother with makeup. I once went to the dermatologist for a mole and he noticed my acne. He gave me the most incredible cream - you just put it on the minute your skin feels tender. It never appeared. I make that little tube last. I plan to ask him again. You are not alone!

I just found your blog from Kelly's and I can totally relate! After I had my 2nd kid, I totally broke out!!! I couldn't get it under control! Proactiv healed it right up!
