The Teenage Years all Over Agian

Yikes, I'm breaking out big time. Six months ago, I had flawless skin. People used to comment on it all the time. Now? I look like I belong in highschool. Actually, when I was in highschool I never had pimples this bad. It's disgusting! They're so red and take over both my cheeks and my chin. I don't know what I can do to make it go away. But I really need to get rid of it because it's getting me down.

I haven't done anything different to my usual skincare regime so I don't understand why I'm breaking out so bad. I think it's due to hormones... I'm still breastfeeding my son, but a couple of months ago I got my period agian. I think that was when my skin started breaking out lots. So how do you get rid of pimples due to hormones? You can't, right? You just have to ride it out.

I've been washing my face carefully, usually twice a day but occasionally only once. Every few days I use an exfoliant and I'm meticulous when it comes to moisterizing. I'm using products that have always got along with my skin. I dab on pimple cream where needed. I'm eating fairly well. So what else can I do to get rid of these pimples? Even though the pimples dry out quickly after I use pimple cream on it, I find that it leaves a red spot which doesn't seem to fade at all. I have these spots all over my cheeks. It's so gross.

Anyone have any suggestions? I'm freaking out! Go away, pimples! Leave me alone, please! Let my skin be beautiful agian!

  1. Hi,
    I'm almost 30 and I still have acne prone skin. Look into acidopholous (?) and maca root. I take it and its helped quite a bit.:)

  2. Also, I know you breast feed, so u really gotta look into it. Acidopholous is a probiotic, and maca root helps with your hormones. Get them from vitacost.com..very cheap! Hope that helps hun, I know how you feel!

  4. Calm down no1. Its hormonal so the more balanced your body and mind are the more calm your skin will be.

    1. USe natural products. A Rose water toner is always a good start..

    2. Take green tea. Either 2 cups a day or a capsule a day.. it helps cleanse a system.

    3. Not too much moisturizer.. especially before bed.

    Hope your hanging in there.. dont stress it will be over soon enough. After a few more periods it will calmm down!
