Hello pretty skin!

So, I keep forgetting to share my dermatology journey. I finally went to see a dermatologist about a month ago. I know it may be TMI, but I had been getting large, painful cyst-like zits around my chin. The second one would go away, another came back. Praise the Lord my mama sent me to the doctor. Amazing how quickly they can take care of things - and it was a simple fix, so I thought I'd share.

Step 1 was simple - switch to Cetaphil Antibacterial Bar for my cleanser. It's cheap. $4. And it's worked! I love it. Odd using a bar again, after so many years of pump cleansers, but I'm getting used to it!

I got a few topical treatments to spot treat, but the other big thing was oil-free makeup. I had to TOSS so many things I had - Physician's Formula, Revlon, you name it. 

But out with the old, and in with the new - Bobbi Brown!

The difference is amazing - things aren't perfect, but the doctor told me it would take three months to see major changes, and it's been one and I'm already seeing a big difference. Yay!

Just thought I'd share - I'm loving my new makeup, and my clearer skin! I highly recommend Cetaphil's Antibacterial Bar!

  1. I've been dealing with acne for the first time ever, and had to change some things. I'm using ProActiv and it seems to be working, but it's definitely not cheap! Maybe once I run out I'll try Cetaphil and see if it works!

  2. I'm also dealing with pimple flare ups. It's so frustrating when you think you've passed that in your teenage years. I switched cleansers to something by Neutragena and that seems to be helping. Mine aren't so bad as to hit up a doctor, I don't think. But it's good to know about the Cetaphil bar. A friend of mine uses their other things and raves.
