Fighting acne ... my very personal story

How to fight acne?

I started fighting acne for good

Acne can change people. I will not believe if the person who fights with him says that he never broke down ... never shed a tear looking in the mirror. I struggled with acne from high school 1. It was then that the huge stress associated with the confusing family situation caused that everything was reflected on my face.

When I look at photos from that period I see all the bad things that were happening then. I can say that my face was a map where every pimple meant something that had happened. This fight was terrible. Terribly long and expensive. Monthly visits to a dermatologist, expensive ointments every month, tablets that did nothing.
I don't even want to count how much money I've spent to feel better, to see myself better. I feel that I wouldn't count ... I don't think I want to, because it is money dumped. You can see how it was in the photo below. That's how my face looked like a few years ago. Today, when I tell others that I used to have terrible acne, no one believes. Now you can see for yourself and believe ...
Fighting acne ... my very personal story

Time for change for the better, i.e. winning the fight against acne

Studies were a time when my life changed, and probably the most with me. I have undergone a complete makeover. I cut my hair, which I wore to my waist all my life, and began my adventure with makeup. It was then that this blog was created (on the blog.pl platform).
To this day, I do not know where I got this strength, which then pushed me to action. This great desire to change gave a good kick. I started to look for the answer: what can be the reason for acne, how to fight it. There were many ups and downs. I have cried more than once looking in the mirror and not once thought about myself badly. I experimented, I was looking for a good dermatologist who will finally help me. Unfortunately, none of them did it.
Today I can say that I won the fight against acne alone. In the first photo you can see the current state of my face. I only have Dr. G. BB cream on my face, I read a lot, searched, and finally found a few products that helped me.
Has the fight against acne changed me ?!
Very ... although I still look in the mirror and look for my imperfections. Today, however, I know how to fight them.
I still see something on my face from time to time, but I promised myself that my skin would never look the same again. I will fight for it with all my might.

I currently use

- I wash my face: Cetaphil + every other day Tchibo sonic toothbrush
- other: I use it once every 2 weeks Darsonval

Darsonval - a proven way to treat acne

I got a lot of emails and comments that most of you didn't get the Darsonval user manual. That's why today I come to the rescue - I will pass on to you what I received from the seller who sold me Darsonval.

darsonval with pelottesDarsonval is the best and proven way to treat acne. Otherwise you can fight it with acne at home. This device is easily accessible. You can buy them in online stores or on Allegro. We can also do the first darsonval treatment at a good cosmetician.

Correct use of the Darsonval device

  1. We try to place the hand on the Darsonval's handle low (at the power cable), a higher grip on Darsonval may unnecessarily take currents through our hand and reduce the effectiveness of the treatments.
  2. After each treatment (the pelota has cooled down), we disinfect it (I use hydrogen peroxide or colloidal silver for this).
  3. Darsonval we work only dry, without any cosmetics, on dry skin (after washing, wait for it to dry completely), similarly with the hair - they must be completely dry.
  4. The frequency of use depends on many factors, however it can be assumed that:
  • for the purpose of stimulating microcirculation in the skin (general pelottic mushroom massage), the procedure is performed 1-2 times a month,
  • for healing current skin breakouts for a short period of time, we can use Darsonval every 1-2 days
  • all scalp, antibacterial, etc. treatments are carried out 1-2 times a week for 4-6 weeks, followed by 1-2 treatments twice a month

Below you can see how to use darsonval with 'mushroom' pelota. We use this pelota for larger areas which is, among others face, back or cleavage. For smaller surfaces, we use a 'tear' pelota or pelota for darsonval spot treatment.

A detailed description of the treatments with the help of the darsonval device

1. Mushroom pelotte massage

- thoroughly clean the face and wait for the skin to dry completely. We do massage in small round movements from forehead to nose, right cheek, chin, left cheek, nose. Repeat several times without stopping the pelottes during the procedure in one place.

surgery time: 5-15 minutes
power: 50-60%
2. Treatment of pimples with mushroom or scattering
- thoroughly clean the treatment area and wait for it to dry. The tip of the pelota is put to the place of treatment at 10 and we peel off. We repeat 2-3 times.
power: 40-75%
- alternatively, we put the pelottes on 2-3 seconds and detach from the skin many times (6-10 times)
power: 50-100%
3. Cleansing and treatment of the scalp with a pelotte comb
- we assemble the pelota. We comb the hair by touching the scalp with the comb leading the hair in the direction of the growing hair (from top to bottom)
surgery time: 5-15 minutes
power: 30-60%
