I recently wrote about how my face has decided to erupt in massive acne. It started when we moved to our new place.
Of course, at first I thought it was just the stress of moving. But the acne persisted. Then I thought it was my face soap (even though I’ve been using the same thing for months before), so I changed it and yet the acne persisted. I’ve tried changing my diet, tried a couple of facial regimes and yet the acne still persists.
In my gut, I feel that it is something in my environment. I’ve had beautiful skin for more than 3 years. I don’t want to go to the dermatologist and have them prescribe something for the symptom, I want to fix the problem!
Recently, we just went on a trip to Israel. I used my same soap, shampoo, etc. Within just a couple of days of being there, my face started to clear up. By the time we came back at the end of the 2 weeks, almost all of the acne was gone – the only ones remaining were little and were the last ones to erupt. But there were no new ones for over a week.
It has been a whopping 3 days since we’ve been home and guess what? Yep, my acne is back! WTF?!!!
I am sure more than ever that it is something in my environment, but what on earth could it be? It just doesn’t make any sense to me. Needless to say, I am sooooo annoyed at this stupid battle with acne.
