Acne: My Relapse

After that allergic reaction I had earlier in the month, I noticed my skin is not returning back to the state pre-reaction. It's quite upsetting because I thought I had already dealt with pretty bad acne (in high school), and struggled to maintain somewhat low key of a status with it. I am probably going to have to see my dermatologist in the coming weeks to see what we can do.

I'm not gonna lie: my skin was never at any point in time perfect, but this is getting too far from being where I want it to be.

Here's some pictures where you can really see my skin erupting:


I have never seen my forehead this bad in years...no joke


That big one is actually quite normal right be fore my time of the month, but lately they have been springing up regularly.


These small bumps all over are also quite not normal.

Well...I have been trying to use some new products like Mario Badescu Drying Cream, St. Ive's Green Tea Scrub, Biore Detoxifying Cleanser, and a cream by Clearasil. I am trying to find that balance of products but results can't come any slower if you ask me.

If you have a favorite acne treatment/product, share!!!


  1. Hey Sara if you are interested in getting a facial I can recomend someone who does a pretty good job. She's an esthetician at the spa in Pacific Beach Hotel but also works out of her home on her days off. She charged $30 for a 50 min. facial. Let me know if you're interested!

    Oh and just fyi I use the St. Ives apricot scrub (daily) and an amino acid creme cleanser from DHS (daily), and a Borghese Fango mask (monthly) for my skin care routine.

  2. 30 bucks sounds like a deal!!! I'll talk to you later about it :)
