I have done many research online and tried many of the methods only to find that it’s not working until I found one solution that I proved to be working myself. By writing my experience, although it’s really an embarrassing story, I wanted to share it because I want to help other women to get rid of their acne. I really know the frustration.
I recommend you to read my story below but if you are in a hurry, here I give you the ultimate solution to my acne.
Acne is a pretty common occurrence. Everyone has had at least a few zits in their lifetime. Many people go through the infamous and awkward pimply stage during their adolescent years. Some people are lucky enough to escape acne’s wrath after they reach adulthood. My name is Audrey. I am 25 years old, and I am not so lucky.
It wasn’t hard at first. In middle school, pretty much everyone had acne. I wasn’t so self-conscious about it because it wasn’t that big of a deal. Yes it was ugly, and annoying, and painful, but I wasn’t going through it alone. I dealt with it by washing my face with soap and water every night. It didn’t do much to alleviate the spots, but I figured it would eventually go away by the time I got to high school.
Flash-forward to tenth grade and my face was still a pizza. By then most of my friends had already completed their awkward acne stage, and had gone on to receive beautiful, glowing skin. Only I was stuck dealing with pimples that distracted me from my educational and social life. I’d skip classes and parties because of bad breakouts, and I started to become obsessed with getting rid of my acne.
I tried oils, masks, creams, scrubs, homemade remedies, professional treatments, everything. I spent countless hours on the internet looking up for cures to my predicament. However, nothing I tried worked. The end result would always be the same – the acne would prevail.
Since I couldn’t seem to get rid of the pimples, I moved on to trying to cover them up. I spent hundreds of dollars over the years on expensive department store makeup to cover up my spots. It took twenty minutes of my morning routine to put on all the primers, foundations, concealers, creams, and powders. It took me another twenty at night just to take it all off. Sometimes I wouldn’t want to remove the makeup, because I wouldn’t want to be reminded of what my skin really looked like. My acne damaged my self-confidence as well as my wallet!
Of course, I went to the dermatologist after I gave up on dealing with the acne myself. They looked me over for about five minutes and prescribed me various medications with names I couldn’t pronounce. All they gave me was nothing but false hope. They promised me I would see results in a few months, and Ipersevered through those tough times, but was rewarded with nothing but a large bill from the dermatology office.
Acne also hurt me when it came to relationships. Going on dates was hard, and I would often cancel because of a bad breakout. It was hard to concentrate on having fun with guys when all I could think about was my acne: Is he paying attention to my zits? Did I cover them up enough? Ow, they hurt. Does he think they’re gross? Ugh, I’m not going to get a second date, am I? I dreaded being too close to a guy because I didn’t want him to see my disgusting spots up close. I maintained too much distance, and that discouraged a lot of potential boyfriends.
I didn’t really share my acne dilemma with others because I didn’t want them to know how much I was struggling. My acne was my biggest weakness. I didn’t want people to know I cared so much about it, and so I was alone in my fight for a while. Eventually, however, I opened up about it to my friend Stella. The decision to do so was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Stella was one of my high school friends who had grown up to become an adult with flawless skin. Initially I had assumed it was just lucky genetics that had endowed her with such a gift. After talking to her, however, I discovered the real reason behind her beautiful complexion.
Stella had purchased a book, aptly titled Acne No More, on the internet. She had been skeptical about ordering it at first, but bought it after reading its good reviews. Stella lent me her copy, and the results were so good that I went out and bought one of my own.
I read Acne No More religiously until I had finished the entire guide. I listened to every word it said, and followed every step. In a matter of weeks, my face was clear. I had never been so happy in my entire life! I thanked Stella profusely and gave the book raving reviews on the internet. Now, I’m more confident about myself and I don’t have to spend as much time, money, or energy on worrying about my skin. I go on dates without a problem and I currently have a wonderful significant other. Acne No More has changed my life for the better!
I hope you can learn from my story and finally get rid of your acne too.
