The Best products for acne that actually work! Also, they helped me cure my 15 year old acne
I suffered from acne ever since I was a teenager. It wasn’t too bad at the beginning but with time it just got worse and worse. The more I hated it the more I had spots on my face. But then I stopped hating it but the spots still didn’t clear up!
During my college and university period, I had several massive acne breakouts on my face which effected my self-esteem and confidence.
I didn’t feel comfortable around people or wanted to meet new people as most of them wanted to know “how come you got spots on your face?”. I have fair skin, so big red and white spots looked even more visible.
I didn’t want to go shopping with my mum because I knew we’d meet familiar faces outside and they’ll all ask me the “spots question” which I always hated to answer.
I didn’t use the foundation as much I am aware through personal experiences that the more I covered the spots with make-up the more I’ll have blocked pores, which will result in more break-outs. However, so far nothing helped. I tried many internal and external medicine.
I spent thousands of pounds not only on over the counter/online medicines, but alternative herbal medicine to home remedies. I even had microdermabrasion a couple of blocks of sessions too! Whoever suggested something I was in the shops/places the very next day to try it out.
So you can see how desperate I was to get rid of my acne. I’ve always been health conscious and therefore ate healthy most of the times but nothing made any noticeable difference.
I tried many home remedies including the gram flour and lemon mask. This mask has always been my go to remedy as it gives me not only the temporary relief from acne, as well as gets rid of the aftermaths of the spots, the marks! I’ve used this for quite a few years now.
I feel this is one the reasons I don’t have any obvious marks or scars on my skin. I have a fairly clear skin despite that many years of troubled skin!
Over the years I have managed to control my acne with various herbal medication such as the Evening Primrose Oil, Manuka Honey, Multibionta, green tea, Nettle Tea, fresh ginger etc. I even tried the Clinique clear skin range but that didn’t clear my skin completely.
I was just beginning to cover my acne with the foundation. The best foundation I came across was the Estee Lauder double wear. This foundation did not make my skin look clogged or cakey but gave me a natural looking smooth finish.
However, I could still see bumps under my beautiful foundation which was annoying every time I looked myself in the mirror.
My search for the clear up acne continued. Until I came across the Neutrogena Visible clear range. The range contained of purifying toner, daily scrub, daily mosturiser, wash mask and daily wash
I was amazed by these products even after using for only 3 days! I used them twice a day, in the morning and evening. Spots reduced in size and some of them were gone completely! The redness and scarring reduced. My skin looks even and glowing.
My face is so clear and oil free even on the T-Zone. My skin looks brighter and softer. I was a bit sceptical initially as I have a combination skin which is sensitive to breakouts. I use these products daily and I can confidently say that they have changed my skin for the better. Unlike, other treatments I’ve tried in the past, which resulted in dry flaky skin.
This range, if not completely but has significantly reduced the spots on my face as well as moisturize my skin at the same time. This is the most effective treatment I have ever tried and I can’t recommend it enough to people who have had similar issues as myself. Seriously this stuff works!
I now show off my skin with confidence.
All the best to you for your acne free future.
