Last year I developed severe acne all over my cheeks and chin. This was absolutely traumatizing to me. I'm sure we all know the feeling of walking into a room and feeling like all eyes are on your face- and not for the reasons you what them to be. My acne progressed as the school we went on (I'm assuming it was triggered by the high amount of stress). I was on several different acne medications and using a couple different topical creams. Nothing was working. I decided to go off absolutely everything (except my BC) and my acne cleared up about 2 months later. I mean it was fully gone!! All that was left was scars, which seemed like nothing after having billions of red spots on my face for months. This last summer my face stayed clear and I enjoyed every minute of having clear skin. I never wanted to experience that awful feeling of self consciousness again...
Then this school year started, and all my acne came back
I'm on a new medication called spironolactone. I've been on it for about 1 1/2 weeks now... And I'm praying the results are good. I'm patient, I know progress is going to take a while, and I'm okay with that. It's just so defeating knowing that my acne could keeping coming back even when it fully clears up.
I feel SO ugly. I would give anything to run my hands over my face and just feel smooth skin..
I feel like no guys will ever look twice at me because all they see the first time is a disgusting face. If you guys have any words of encouragement or similar stories, I would love to hear them.
I've attached a picture of my current acne outbreak, and what my face looked like after the recovery from last outbreak. It was so smooth
