My acne keeps getting incresingly worse. Usually around fall/winter it clears up, but it's so much worse than it's been in years. I was in Europe for 3 months and I thought the climate change and such was the reason I was breaking out more. And since I've been home it's gotten so terrible.
I honestly don't have any money, so I can't afford to go to a doctor or be on any pills. I've tried changing my diet and nothing seems to be helping. I use benzyol peroxide twice a day, and I use a clay mask once a week.
I feel absolutely disgusting and I've had acne for 7 years. I thought when you were in your 20's you weren't supposed to have acne!

Does anyone have any tips that will help, or maybe any suggestions on why you think it's gotten so bad. Could I be allergic to something? I just don't understand! gah!

I only really drink water, along with some juice. I'm not on birth control. Benzyol peroxide used to work even when I had bad acne when I was younger, so I don't know why it's not working now. Maybe I should stop using it?? But I don't want to stop and then break out more, heh.
I'll definitely try that mask though!

And I'm actually vegan so I don't consume any dairy at all! haha.
But thanks for the advice.

Right now I'm just making sure I eat well, trying to not drink as often and trying to not touch my face at all. I just feel like it's not something that can be fixed topically, but I don;t know what exactly is wrong. I'm afraid I might be allergic to something (maybe soy?) but I'm not sure! gah!
