treatment for acnes

Just something I don't see here enough

Shout out to people with mild acne
Shout out to people with cystic acne
Shout out to people with large pores and blackheads
Shout out to people with oily skin
Shout out to people with acne scars
Shout out to people who cover their acne with makeup and are shamed for it
Shout out to people who don’t cover their acne who are shamed for it as well
Shout out to people with acne that can’t start medical treatment

Skin problems are never displaid in body positivity campaigns. Acne is rearly represented in the media, and when it does it’s represented negatively. You don’t need to have perfect skin to be beautiful.

if your skin problems/conditions are so extreme that essential oils aren’t an option, that’s okay!!!

if your skin problems are so extreme that you can’t use cutesy little products, you use medical-looking ones, that’s okay!!!

if your skin problems are so extreme that trendy face masks don’t do a thing, that’s okay!!!

if your skin problems persistent, extreme, and even annoying, that’s okay and you are beautiful!!!

  • Person who never had acne in their life: You should just wash your face every morning

skin talk

okay, so i thought i would share this with you guys because i know majority of people have acne and flippin hate it !!! (obviously) and i used to suffer from pretty severe acne all over! i just wanted to give u guys some tips and tricks on how i cleared up my acne completely. 

-first of all, i started taking birth control. not for preventing to become pregnant, for my skin. my dermatologist suggested it. i’ve been taking it for a little over a year now and i am sure it is one of the major factors that my skin is clear. i noticed that when i went on a 2 week trip and forgot my birth control, that i broke out a bit. 

-i started what’s called the ‘caveman regimen’ in february of this year. i did a lot of research as to how to up acne and i found this routine. it consists of basically just doing nothing to your face other than washing with water. and that’s all i’ve done since february. i take a konjac sponge and run it under hot water and lightly exfoliate (it’s barely even exfoliation, it’s that gentle) for about a minute and splash cold water on my face (day & night). 

-referring to above, STOP USING SO MANY PRODUCTS ON YOUR FACE!! as an early teen, i thought using multiple drug store acne products (cough clean and clear cough) would clear up my skin- NO!!! it was irritating my skin like crazy! making my acne inflame basically. if u don’t want to try the caveman regimen, invest in a VERY natural face wash, like one from Lush. also, do not wash your face more than twice a day (irritation galore).

-i don’t wear makeup except mascara, but if u have a full face coverage routine, u MUST make sure it is ALLLLL off of your face before u go to sleep. invest in a really good/natural makeup remover (cough-coconut oil) and a good cleanser.

-SPF and moisturizing are KEY!!! i have a spf 40 moisturizer that i use in the morning and a lush moisturizer that i use at night. if u have oily skin, moisturize. if u have acne, moisturize. if u have dry skin, MOISTURIZE. trust me, i used to think that since i had acne and oily skin on my forehead that i wasn’t supposed to moisturize. but ever since i have… guess what……. my skin is clear n glowing!!!!! (i suggest lush moisturizers, they are amazing and healthy for u)

-treat your skin to a homemade mask once every one-two weeks. try a avocado and honey mask, or maybe an aloe vera n garlic mask!!! just google ‘homemade masks’ and tons will come up!!! (just make sure u aren’t allergic to the ingredients, obv)

-yes, your diet does affect your skin. dairy & sugar are two things that personally make me break out if i eat a lot of them. which sucks because my two favourite things in the world are cheese and ice cream… anyway, don’t completely cut them out, just limit them.

-CHANGE. YOUR. PILLOWCASES. i have four pillows and i use all eight sides of each pillow before i wash them all again :-) keep your face clean!!!!!

-wash your makeup brushes/cloths/anything you put on your face. including your hands. i have a soap that i use before bed called carbolic soap (doctors use it before surgery) because i have a habit of touching my face while i sleep. 

-yes, water is your friend, but it will not clear up acne on it’s own. i’m sorry.

OKAY so those were some of my experiences and tips on acne!!! i hope i helped u guys in some way!!!! pls message me if u have any questions

LIFE CHANGING TIP EVERYONE: mix three tablespoons of honey with one tablespoon of powdered cinnamon, and apply it to your face every day for at least 30 mniutes and then wash it off with warm water. IT WILL GET RID OF YOUR PIMPLES, I’ve only been using it for a week but my face is super clear, soft and nice, I love it. and if you have acne scars, add some lemon juice to the mix and you should be good to go.

I can’t wait for my skin to be clear enough for me to be comfortable looking in restroom mirrors. I always avoid looking at my reflection in restrooms due to the possibility of the harsh lighting making me feel insecure. I just can’t wait to not feel so shitty and insecure. I can’t wait to not have to avoid my reflection.

To all my hoes, I bought this at Sephora about 3 days ago exactly, I was very distrustful about this product since I have tried a lot of this kind of products for acne, but the Sephora girl was insisting very much on it, so I bought the kit to give it a try and guuuurl this thing works magic on acne, I have very bad acne, and it gets even worse on those days of the month (which I always have to cover with make up) and it’s very uncomfortable when I have to sleep over with a SD and I have to take my makeup off 😑.

With the only 3 days I’ve been using it, my acne it’s almost gone,besides its a very good price for all of the goodies it contains than buying each one (which I recommend too) ☺️

I had one of those nasty pimples who get very red and ache and I applied the step 2 every four hours and at night all the redness was gone, and even the pimple.

If someone wants to see the before and after picture let me know 💕 but let me warn you the before picture looks gross lol

(っ◕‿◕)っ♥  Acne Tips!

This has nothing to do with my normal blog content, but everyone will have a pimple at some point in their life, and sometimes they’re really difficult to get rid of, but I hope this can help you guys!


WASH YOUR FACE BEFORE DOING ANY ACNE TREATMENT!!

1) Baking Soda mixed with a bit of water until it’s a paste, and put on your face for 30min. Make sure to wash it all off afterwards. 

2) Put lemon juice on cotton balls, and use these to clean your acne. DO NOT LEAVE THIS ON YOUR FACE!!! Wash off after you dab clean to prevent drying. 

3) DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PIMPLES!! Your hands are filthy. They touch all kinds of surfaces, and the oils and bacteria from your hands just makes the acne so much worse

4) Do not use multiple acne remedies at once! They will dry out your skin SO MUCH, and peeling can be just as annoying as acne. Make sure to keep your skin properly moisturized by not over-using treatment, or using moisturizers that won’t clog your pores, or have a lot of oils in them. 

5) Strong green tea that has been cooled to room temperature, and apply this to your acne. You could also put this in a spray bottle and spritz it on your acne. You can leave this on over-night, and this can be repeated as often as you want - without drying. 


I hope this can help you guys!!

things that piss me off (acne edition)


1) annoying people giving me useless advice - just yesterday a girl from my school came up to me and told me “hey listen, did you ever try using manuka honey for your face? it’s like 50 $ but it’s really good”(sidenote: she has clear skin) okay i get these ‘tips’ at least twice per day and they make me so frustrated like jesus i’ve used everything available in this universe oh my god do you think some honey is really going to help me? no

2) “you shouldn’t wear makeup it worsens your acne” how about no, it’s easy to say this, but if i were to go to school without makeup everyone would talk about my acne and i mean THE WHOLE SCHOOL + TEACHERS. it’s an easy thing to say when you have like 3 pimples but my confidence is already below zero so not wearing makeup would just throw me into a deep depression.

3) people talking me out of Accutane this happened when i was thinking about going on Accutane and i told my friend. all my friends went batshit crazy and proceeded to talk me out of it. i understand people caring about you but at the end of the day it’s my choice, and if i would go on Accutane it would be after lots and lots and even more hours of research. i know what i’m stepping into.

4) people just being ignorant and rude i once made the mistake of telling my friend that i had a good skin day and she just blurted out “you call that a good skin day? just kidding” and these kind of remarks really get to me. i don’t understand why some people feel the need to make somebody feel bad for themselves. what do you gain?? stop ok??

5) getting noticed and labeled only by your acne if you have ever had bad acne then you know the feeling of talking to a person a noticing their gaze glide to a bad pimple you have. or getting recognized as “the girl with reaaally bad acne” . yup, it’s the worst.
