My Acne story- Update

I haven't been following my skin care routine the last two months because of exams. So, while my skin hasn't gone back to its pre-treated days it has gotten worse.

Now, I use my tretinoin cream on alternate nights after washing with cetaphil cleanser. On the night I don't use tretinoin I use Acnes powder lotion, leave it on for an hour and then follow up with an ayurvedic oil called Kumkumadi Thailam. I know you're all thinking, "oil" now, but kumkumadi thailam is formulated for people with acne and it hasn't broken me out yet.

In the morning I put on Lacto Calamine Classic after toning with Acnes.

My skin has improved hugely in 8 months. The redness from the scars is barely visible now and while the mild pits will I suppose never go, my skin is a lot smoother.

  1. Hello,

    I run and maintain a blog about blogging and WordPress at Recently, I have launched some inspirational blogs about getting 6 packs ( and losing weight post pregnancy (

    I am also in the process of launching a similar blog that publishes inspiring stories of people who are fighting with acne and people who have succeeded in getting rid of acne. You can see it at

    I was searching the internet for acne related blogs, and was really impressed by your story when I read about it on your blog. Congratulations for everything you have been able to achieve!

    I was wondering if you would be interested in an email interview telling your story – we would discuss topics like your background, how you felt when you started getting acne, what you did to fight acne, the issues you faced, how you succeeded, etc. Your story would be really inspiring and motivating to many people wanting to get rid of acne, and therefore, I urge you to positively consider this interview request.

    I would of course be happy to provide a link back to your blog or Facebook page. Please let me know if you would want to go ahead with this email interview, and I would send out the questions to you.

    Thanks in advance...

    Warm regards,
