Acne: getting rid of it

So you suffer with acne. Whether you're a teen, or an adult, acne is an embarrassing condition to live with. I would know, I have it.

I first started getting acne when I was around 11 years old. It was just a few pimples, nothing to worry about right? wrong. Now that I'm older, my acne has more than tripled in severity, and I also suffer from body acne ("Bacne").

If you don't have acne, you may think I'm making a big deal out of nothing. But I am being 100% serious here.

My acne has changed me. I haven't wore a sleeveless top in more than a year. I don't like taking pictures, because of my acne. Before I post a picture online, I always edit all my acne spots out. There are times when I don't think I will ever see my actual skin again. Acne has dramatically lowered my self-confidence. And I would like to have that back, thank you very much.

I'm going to start a quest, to get rid of my acne once and for all. I will try different things, and post the results on my blog.

A few of the things that seem to work with me:

"Brazilian peel"
I got a free sample of this, and when I tried it I was amazed at the results! My acne kept getting better all week! But that's the catch, you need to do a treatment once a week, and This stuff is quite expensive! If I could, I would use this stuff all the time, but I can't afford it.

"DIY Acne/Scar reducing mask"

I saw this on youtube, and I tried it that night. This really works! I have acne scars, and this mask reduced them quite a bit! I did not make the toner. just the mask. Please, try this! You will most likely have good results!
