tell your mom you can't control your breakouts, like what the heck are you supposed to do ask your pimple to not grow anymore, and pimples is literally part of puberty or being a teenager, don't blame yourself it ain't your fault, we luv u <3
Listen: African Black soap and a moisturizer that works for YOUR SKIN. Trust me. People (mainly white people) Will say “no that dries your skin out too much”. But I’m telling you if you find the right moisturizer that works for you, like Cetaphil, you’ll see results In a month or 2. And DRINK WATER THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
Wash with black soap when you wake up and right before you go to bed. I swear it’s gonna work. I had terrible acne til I started this. But it Hass to be real black soap. It looks brown and chunky kind of like mud in a bar form. It’s not black and smooth.
Take this from me dude, you can get rid of it.
I assume you're talking about acne and not pimples cuz pimples go away in 4-7 days but acne goes, comes back the next day in 2x number and this cycle continues.
I've had breakouts from the age of 12 to 18 (I'm 19 now) and it was such a hard period for me. Literally NONE of my classmates had skin issues but there I was with face acne, pimples, acne scars, backne, strawberry skin and so on. My skin was just fuvked up. I was so depressed and cried everyday cuz acne made me feel worthless and ugly and one of my friends even told me that she feels EW to kiss my cheek (we all kiss our friends). I was so broken from inside the last 7 years. I don't remember the frickin number of dermatologists I went to to treat my skin. They said it might be genetics cuz my mom too has had acne while she was young and then all of them prescribed me the same topical gel which is CLINDAMYCIN PHOSPHATE. No, it didn't work on me and never did any of them changed the prescription for me. I just wasted my time and money. Then I lost hope. When I was 14 I stopped visiting dermatologists and left it as it is. I got a lot depressed and fuvked up so many things cuz of my insecurity. But then I passed 12th grade on 2020. The next day after my final exam I went to a cosmetologist/aesthetician cuz my dad had told me he'll let me do clinical treatment(laser) when I turn 18 + finish 12th grade. It was my life's turning point tbh. It was a lady doctor and I explained my acne journey and she told me, "aw, you're such a pretty baby girl. It's time to make you even prettier" lol maybe will sound childish but never has anyone called me pretty ever before and I got so emotional and cried. She told me I don't need a clinical treatment but instead prescribed me isotretinoin capsules+ clindamycin and adapalene gel along with a proper skincare routine which included a moisturizer, cleanser and sunscreen. I came back home with all these and the next day quarantine began here in India lol. I got so happy that I could stay home and take care of my skin and guess what? A miracle happened in exact 80 days. my acne just vanished from my face. I'm not exaggerating this. All thanks to my lady doctor for giving me a proper skincare routine and the miracle drug isotretinoin also known as ACCUTANE. My skin is glowing rn but left with little acne scars but that's okay, adjustable. So the point is you don't need to worry about the arrogant pimples living on your face rent free. You should go to a cosmetologist/aesthetician in your area and not a dermatologist. Most dermatologists will prescribe the same gels and nothing will work. At least that's what I know from my experience. Just tell my story to your mom and she'll understand that it's not just you and many teenagers has got similar issues, maybe worse and you're not at fault. Also I'm so sorry that your mom is blaming you.
And if you've just got pimples I'll suggest you to buy "Clindamycin phosphate and adapalene" gel and apply it on your pimples every night before going to bed. It will help you. Plus Cetaphil facewash.
Just leaving my experience here cuz many are dealing with pimples and acne. Yall pretty people, don't worry. This too shall pass.
