Hi Mads :-)
I’m a 13 year old girl. I get blemishes all the time, even if I do sports 10-12 hours a week, don’t eat sweets, drink a lot of water and use all kinds of products, what is the reason for it?
For a time, I’ve used concealer, too much!.. I still use it, but not as much. Because I think it’s embarrassing to show my blemishes at school, when no one else has them.
Mostly, I pick my blemishes, I can’t help it... - I have a couple of scars, is that the reason?
Thanks in advance,
I am so bummed to hear about your problems with acne, but it is good to hear that you are active and eat healthy. That will and already have a positive influence on your acne.
You write that you use all kinds of products and that is why I fear that your skin is over-treated, and that can be the cause for a lot of your acne. At the same time, when you do a lot of sports it is so important to cleanse your skin after training. When the skin is sweating a lot of waste products are excreted from your skin, and it is important to wash that off. Unfortunately, lots of people forget to use a mild cleanser (maybe Clean Skin Face Wash) after training, and that is one of the major problems.
In addition to the massive amount of time you spend on training at only 13, I would really recommend you to take a look at your diet (even if you write that you eat healthy). When you train as much as you do, it is so important to fill up the depots in your body, so that your body has something to resist with when battling the acne.
You should really avoid picking at your blemishes – it can, as you have already experienced, cause scars to appear. These can be difficult to treat afterwards – a daily exfoliation can help with problem, though. Check out the Smooth Skin Treatment, which is based on a BHA (2 % salicylic acid) – that can help with your scars as well as being effective on the acne.
I can certainly understand your frustration, and if the information on my web site Is not enough, I would recommend you to read my cure for acne, which is my simple and very effective step-by-step programme for curing acne and blemishes, among other things you will get:
