My Acne Regimen

9Sep

I started to breakout in 7th grade. My acne was so bad that I feel depressed and frustrated. My parents have had acne before and I feel that it played a huge factor in my acne. I used to think that genes has nothing to do with acne but I was wrong. I found myself in that situation. My classmates used to call me pizza face and it was just too hard to bear. Acne has significantly lowered my self-esteem. Going out is a nightmare. Dating is worse. When I look back, it is as if I didn’t have any form of real social interaction. I used to avoid everyone, even my friends. I was bonded by acne.

I started using over the counter acne treatments from dirt cheap ones to the most expensive ones. I have little success in treating acne. Some worked while some made it worse. It was a depressing moment for me. I tried to go to a skin clinic for a through consultation. Determined to clear my acne, I tried everything that the doctor recommended. From prescribed acne treatments to a vegetable only diet.

I was about to give up when I really started doing my own research. Instead over the counter acne treatments and prescribed acne medications, I pointed my direction to natural acne remedies. Nothing worked for me before so I really have nothing to lose. I tried apple cider vinegar but it did not clear up my acne. Aloe vera gel helped a little and made my skin clearer but it was not able to completely clear away my blemishes. Finally, I came up with eggwhites and lemon mask. I got good results from it so I tried to make it a little better and add honey after applying the eggwhite lemon mask. It worked wonders. From pizza face, I now have a clear skin. It was a gradual process and it felt like forever but I did not gave up and just continue with my new found acne regimen.

To use the eggwhite lemon acne mask, I use 3 eggwhites, and half of a medium size lemon. Whisk the eggs rapidly to form a meringue like texture. Before applying wash your face with a regular cleanser. I use warm water when washing my face to open up the pores. Pat dry your face and gently massage the eggwhite lemon mixture. I used to leave mine on for at least 30 minutes. Gently but thoroughly rinse it with warm water. After that I apply honey on my face. This will lock the moisture in. I leave the honey on for 5-10 minutes and rinse it off with cold water to close the pores.
