I do think it could be a mental disease for some people not all. I can relate to some of the things existed has said. I have known and have read many stories of people clearing up their acne by just clearing up their emotions. Everyone's acne is different, some could be a reaction to food or product or many other possibilities. But I truly believe my acne is majority related to my emotions. I 100% agree with the placebo thing that exister has mentioned, I don't think you're crazy at all. Some people just don't know that the mind is a very powerful tool.
I just got excited and thought I'd acne.org it, after starting antibiotics (mostly orally, doxy) and not as often clindamycin, I am suprised at the difference. I tried Yaz for a month and ended up depressed and stopped using it. In between, I tried turmeric masks and they got all over and aztec masks mixed with ACV - can't say it helped but can't say it hurt. I did four glycolic peels 40% and I will do jessner peels when I can handle it (I did a practice 1 minute 1 layer, I think it's intense and I need to work my way up). I am about to start my downtime from peels and I will be using acne stop toner (5% lactic, 10% salicylic) so maybe that'll prep me for the jenner peels a bit. I can't wait to see how things look in June. My grandma mentioned a derm, I guess I'll be looking into that and some scar treatments for the future. YAY.
Yeah I'm ok now, I'm not going to let a disgusting person like that ruin my day, Deja it did feel like she thought it was contagious because when she came close she immediately backed off, but oh wells theres always people like that just some is worse than others lol Life goes on! I do think my acne is mostly stress related and being sad about my acne is contributing to my current acne (if that makes sense) haha I'm looking into the EFT work that you sent me, hope it will help with my emotions
I feel so crushed today, I had a customer today who didnt just comment on my acne but pretty much embarrassed me in front of everyone, I work at a bank so I always have to put on a smile even though when customers are a total jerkoffs, well this lady in her 80s, I told her to come to me so i can serve her and help her out with her transactions, she came close to me and said nope I want to be served by a different person, I was confused so I just said OK that fine, so she walked off and 10 secs later she came back and said out loud, YOU HAVE TOO MANY SPOTS ON YOUR FACE I DONT WANT TO BE SERVED BY YOU. Everyone in the bank pretty much heard it..
I didnt even know how to react.. Yes I've had people comment on my acne before but with good intentions like oh drink more water or use this cream (those comments still makes me sad) BUT this is not what I expected ANYONE TO SAY! I felt like she stabbed me in the heart I could of just cried at that moment when she embarrassed me like that. I dont know how much more of this I can take..
I feel you bro, I feel like this every single day.. I do try to stay positive but at times its just really hard, on the vacation did you do anything different? Your diet? the way you wash your face? or did you go to the beach alot? Ive seen many people on this forum claiming their acne dissapeared after going on vacation and being out in the sun and swimming in the ocean really helped their skin. Try to pin point what you did differently.
Acne has calmed down but still at least one coming up every day, just the small ones that become white pus and goes away in like a day so nothing too bad. Just not feeling too well at work, I dont understand how some customers can be so ignorant and rude..
It's obvious that your body and skin doesnt like all the harsh medication and chemicals you are taking. The antibiotics probably lowered your immune system and has given you a yeast overgrowth. Dermatologist wont help you, look into something more natural.
Hey man I just recently got a new job at a bank and I have to see customers the whole dayyyyy, but trust me all you need to do is act confident and show that acne doesnt affects you in any way! Then noone would ever mention about acne to you. It's all about confidence
