I Spent Thousands Battling Hormonal Acne, and a $20 Regimen Cured It
Through a four-year trial-and-error method, I finally found what keeps my acne under control
To help others battling the ol' acne beast, I created a website, skinacea.com. I documented my acne experience in detail, along with my experiences with common remedies and other skin issues.
My battle with acne, from my first breakout to finally clearing my skin, took about four to five years. There were times that I felt really low during that period. I was a young, social adult, but my acne made me want to hide forever. I felt like there was something wrong with me -- that I was unclean or unhygienic or a bad person and that's why I was plagued with awful zits. Looking back, I wish I had gone out and socialized anyway. I can never get those years back, and staying inside moping over my skin wasn't fun. You can't choose whether you have acne, but you can choose whether you will let it control your life.
