Acne Confession

Recently I wrote about how my face broke out when we moved and that organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) was helping my acne get better. I did not lie in that article. The ACV was definitely helping.

I struggled with acne as a teen, then as a young adult. I was only able to get rid of it when I went on accutane. For the past (dare I say it) 10 years, I’ve enjoyed nice skin – with an occasional break out. While I was pregnant, I truly had the “glowing” skin everyone talks about. That was WONDERFUL!

However, I still have acne since we moved! WTF!? I’m totally at a loss as to what is going on. As of a week ago, I went back to the routine I had pre-move. It appeared to be working. I wasn’t getting any new pimples. That is until last night… my chin totally broke out again.

I’m going to keep up with my old skin routine for another week or so to see if maybe this most recent break out is just the tail end of the acne. I REALLY hope this is the end of it. As a new mom, I really don’t like to wear makeup every day – it just seems like a lot of work with little reward. I must admit, I’m rather embarrassed by the breakouts. I feel like an awkward teenager again.

Luckily, my son keeps me quite busy and I don’t have time to agonize over it. And it does help that both my husband and my son think I’m beautiful – with or without pimples!
