Hey everyone! So lately I have really been struggling with looking into the mirror. I got off birth control last November, so I’ve been off for about 8 months. I didn’t see any changes in my skin for the first few months, but as time goes on, I feel like my skin is getting worse.
It’s nothing horrible as far as acne goes. I will get a few of those big, underground zits every once in awhile….which does suck, but that isn’t the half of it.
I feel like the past couple months or so, my skin has aged considerably. The pores, especially on my cheeks, towards my nose are very large.
I didn’t have the best habits earlier – I used to tan (last time I tanned was last September before my wedding/honeymoon)… so I no longer do that. I also used to do cardio during my lunch hour at work (just this week, I have stopped doing that – I still work out but only lift weights at work and do my cardio at home (so I can not wear make up). So these two def can’t be good.
Anyway, I finally decided to make an appt with a dermatologist on Monday & I’m scared to death she will tell me that my skin is damaged beyond repair. BTW, I’m only 27. 🙁
Just curious if any of you have experienced your skin doing this – not necessarily acne, but just losing it’s vibrance and is very, very dull – I also have some uneven skin tone spots which I’ve always had but seems to be getting worse…
Please – any advice or experiences would help calm my nerves…I hate feeling this way 🙁
