It’s been some weeks since I finished my acne medication. I was taking daily pills to dry the grease off my face and cease the spots from coming up and putting an antibiotic pomade every night.
My skin cleared up almost completely. Obviously, the scars take a lot longer to fade but that is just time.
I was really scared to stop my treatment because my skin was better than ever and I didn’t want the acne to reactivate.
The first weeks my skin was really good. No active spots or redness. I was so excited because I didn’t wear foundation or concealer.
Here’s the proof of how good my skin was. No makeup. Just woke up.
BUT, SUPRISE! My skin got really bad overnight. I couldn’t believe it the drastic change.
My hormones were crazy because my period was coming and that’s what triggered the acne.
What did I do? I was devastated, in a bad and low mood. I went to have a facial and it worked but not as much as I wanted it to. I started to take some pills that my dermatologist gave me in case this happened. Also, every time I wash my face, I do the first round with a cleanser and a second round with sea water.
Is it better now? It is! Is not as good as it used to be, but it will get there. I think the sea water is what has helped me the most cleaning and disinfecting the skin. The pills will make they effect soon but not just yet.
It’s been a week since I’ve been trying to heal my skin, and I feel positive and thankful because the most simple and natural things always make it better. Most times you don’t need a 100€ cream or extreme procedure or pills, something as sea water or yoga can help you and I think that is incredible!
Have a nice Friday. I will come back with another post next Tuesday!
