  • Yes, much more frequently than I did when I was a teenager I think. It is painful and embarrassing. I use honey and baking soda once a week, it seems to help. (sometimes)

    You are not alone though, many of us are plagued with adult acne...and I agree...boooo, double booo even

  • Ever since my last baby Ive had cases of acne where Id never had issues before(never was one to break out much).

    I think its stress and hormone shifts.

  • I think that since I've had my son, my breakouts have gotten so much worse. I hate it so much. I started using Proactive- and it worked sooo good, but it is way too expensive for us. So, I use this stuff that is basically the same thing from Wal-Mart. It is a system that you use every day, day and night. I love it.

  • Yes. We moved to a much more humid climate than I'm used to, and my skin is still acclimating. it sucks. Also I am on a new brand of BCpills and they are doing funky things to my face too

  • yep.. sure do.. had adult acne until I had my daughter (like, through pregnancy and all somehow it cleared up like a month before I had her) then nothing until I got pregnant again.. Adult acne runs in my family, my grandma had it, my mom, and now me.. yay.

  • My dad had it, he has scars on his face from it. My fiance also has it too, he has worse scars than my dad. If he would stick to a skincare regimen (like I've been trying to get him to) it would go away. I got my mom's skin, the women on her side of the family have flawless, porcelin-like skin. My face is usually pretty except when I get a huge frickin zit on my forehead like right now! Arrrrrrgh, go away evil demon!

  • i had a little acne bout when i was pregnant, then shortly after i gave birth, didnt have any for a solid year and then started to get some slowly but nothing too serious, i used cheap makeup from walgreens and you wouldnt believe how nasty my face looks right now, so this week i have been doing a facial everyday with honey and my skin looks and feels amazing, i went into bare escentuals yesterday (to get better makeup lol no way im ever going cheap again recession or not) and they were all crowding around asking what i do so now they are all going to use honey as well !! HONEY IS THE BOMB!!
