  • Acne Treatment: Loves and Loathes

    I’ve been an acne sufferer for around 11 years or so, and I almost didn’t want to cover this subject in the sense that an acne sufferer blogging about… well, acne might seem ultra predictable. In reality, I think that talking about acne is such a major responsibility for anyone to hoist upon themselves that it seemed incredibly daunting. Looooaaaddddsss of people suffer from acne, and everyone suffers differently. I’m at a point in my life now where I only really suffer around the time my period starts; but it’s still tricky, especially when it feels as if it’s getting out of control no matter how much bath shit you pack onto your face.

    So this isn’t a strict guideline for acne sufferers to follow. I’m just putting out there products that did and did not work for me. Personally. However I would encourage the rest of the acne coven to try as many products as possible – prescription, drugstore and high end – because you never know what could work for you. There could be 78595847 products that do nothing for, or even worsen your acne. As soon as you find that one golden antedote, however, you might just be set for life.
