I’ve had problem skin since I was 11. I still have breakouts now at 29. I’ve been on oral antibiotics and prescription topical meds in the past, but as soon as I went off of them my breakouts came back full force. I don’t want to take antibitoics for the rest of my life, so that’s out. They did really help at the time and whenever I’m prescribed antibiotics for another reason, like a sinus infection, it clears up my skin. So, they do work and would reccommend doing it for your wedding, but not long term.

I have heard HORROR stories about Accutane. Some doctors think it cause serious long term affects and has been linked to crohns and colitis. I don’t think its worth it. I had a friend in high school that was on it and his skin literally fell off. His lips were always bleeding and he had slather vaseline all over his face. I haven’t talked to him in years, so I don’t know if he suffered any long term affects.

Have you tried eliminating certain foods from your diet? I eliminated gluten and most sugars (I still eat fruit sometimes) and I have seen an amazing improvement in my skin. I still get small white heads and black heads sometimes, especially if I fall asleep with makeup on, but I never get the big, painful kind of pimples that I used to have on a daily basis. Some people have a reaction to dairy as well, but I’m too stubborn to give up cheese 🙂 

I think it’s acne.com that has information about the role diet plays in skin health, but I’m not 100%. If you do try eliminating foods, do it one at a time so that you can pinpoint the one that you are reacting to. 

Good luck and I’m sure you will look beautiful on your wedding day no matter what!
