This is just a general topic about the horror of having acne or those annoying zits that randomly pop up like they own the place, and maybe some girls helping girls worth remedys And prevention.

I got my first breakout when I was 11, and I thought it was the worst thing in the world.
I’m pretty sure I thought about nothing else but my skin for the next two yrs :/ For some reason I was super against makeup at that age, so I’d spend hours researching natural remedies online, and came up with some pretty strange things to put on my face (potato face mask anyone? 😛 )
I was looking at pics from that time a few days ago, and honestly my skin wasn’t nearly as bad as I imagined it to be. It did get really dried out and red from drug store products like Neutrogena though, so I think that made it look worse than it actually was.
My skin started to clear up when I started using Mary Kay cleansers, but then they discontinued to one I liked so I started using Lush.
O M G. Y’all. You HAVE to try Lush! I use the Angels on Bare Skin face wash, and I like the Aqua Marina one too. Also, their face masks are to die for! They make your skin glow! GO TO LUSH GUYS!
My skin has never felt or looked so good as it has now that I’m using their products.
Also, lavender oil really clears up acne and prevents acne scars. W/e I got a breakout when I was younger, the zits would go away after about a week but they’d leave red marks that lasted months. It was sooooo frustrating. Then I started moisturizing the zits instead of putting the salycilic acid stuff on them, and while it took a little longer for them to go away (maybe 1.5 wks) the red marks didn’t last that long. So anyway, I use lavender oil at night cuz it’s a little…oily (ha) to use during the day. 🙂
Also, I notice my skin looks a little better when I eat healthy.
So yeah, that’s pretty much it. Whenever I get a breakout now (which is maybe once a month) I just put makeup over it.
Because frankly I don’t really care anymore. Ah, the perks of growing up 🙂
TL;DR~ Use face washes from Lush, eat healthy, use lavender oil and don’t worry, your skin probably doesn’t look as bad as you think 🙂

I got my first zit when I was eight. Yes, eight, and it SUCKED SO MUCH. By twelve, everything had calmed down a lot, and now I only suffer from a facial explosion when I’m on my period. HOWEVER, my chest never seems to be clear, and I’ve tried pretty much everything so if anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated!!
