Solutions for Skin Care Woes

I always thought I’d be over the acne stage after my teen years. I’m in my early thirties now and it’s a struggle I’ve been having for a long time. I’ve used hundreds of products and have read hundreds of online articles, magazine articles, forum posts, and blogs. Drink more water, they say. Exercise, they say. Change your diet, they say. Use only water when washing your face, they say. Exfoliate, they say. Moisturize, they say. Go see a dermatologist, they say. I grew up in Korea where skin care is absolutely essential. My mother never went to bed without applying her eye cream and other expensive serums and never went outside without a hat, a pair of sunglasses, and sunscreen. She would also blot her face with rice paper to absorb extra oil. For blackheads, rather than those painful strips sold here in the U.S., we would use a special mask just for the nose. I don’t know whose genes I inherited, but I have enlarged pores and scarring. Some of that is due to the forbidden picking and squeezing and the occasional use of extraction tools. My friend’s father is a dermatologist and he prescribed Retin-A, antibiotics, and even subjected me to the torture of a glycolic peel. When I used Retin-A, I had to be cautious about sun exposure and it caused irritation that made my skin worse. Another friend of mine suggested Accutane and Neutrogena because he […] Read more
