In general, I dont care unless its really bad.

recently its been a lot of small pimples, but not big red ones like usual.I think this is down to accutane which ive been on for 6 days now.

my face is reaaaally dry but i have an amazing moisturiser so hopefully my acne will get better and better and better and..begone!

Not too bad, actually.

Even though I have like 3 new bumps on my cheeks.

But decent overall, really. And I'm not even wearing makeup.

Sometimes I get really depressed about my face. But I'm okay. For today.

A little better than usual. The new assortment of vitamins I started taking a couple days ago seem to actually be doing something. Of course it might just be a placebo. In which case I'm going to have to do something drastic, because I spent ~$40 on that junk.

Was feeling good till a pimple got worse. It took it off and now it looks pretty bad. Got to go somewhere and am not happy, not to mention I'm under the pressure of my birthday coming up in two weeks and Christmas with family and friends in 3...

todya my friend asked me "do you ever think you're ugly man"

I replied and said "yeah all the time"

and then we talked about why there are so many worse off people out there..

but..

still pretty much said I was outright ugly lol :(


Skin condition is good. scars etc.

The pain of the acne that hurts my soul is large, but the fighting i do to keep going makes my heart follow my soul to the end. :wub:

I am at one with the energy that is against me. ;)

:D

i came down with a cold this weekend and seems like i got so many more pimples too! they hurt...

honestly, as long as they're not whiteheads i'm ok with it ... i hate 'em but whiteheads are more embarrassing.

feeling ok, my skin looks awful in some lights and ok in others.

i try to appreciate just how fragile life is and how statistically improbable my life is!! i'm just a dot, on a vast planet orbiting an even bigger star at a colossal speed. and our solar system exists on an outer ring of a GIANT galaxy, and the galaxy that we live in is 100 light years wide, that means it would take 100 years for light to escape! And our galaxy, however massive it may seem, is just a fragment of the universe, and the billions upon billions of galaxies that make it up. :D

Went to bed happy last night after my 2 ginormous pustules camp to a head and got rid of it in the shower... Then woke up to a few smaller pimples, probably from the rosehip oil I stupidly applied last night!!!

I put on some makeup, felt a little better, but feeling very self conscious. I hate when people look at you then their eyes slowly gravitate toward the zits.

I'm supposed to be going out shopping now but I don't know if I have the guts to. I feel ugly.

I just looked at your gallery Adam, what scars are these? You're making me feel worse about mine.

I think you are being harsh on yourself mate.

You're welcome, I'm just being honest, I don't think I would have noticed any scarring had you not highlighted them in pictures, and who is going to look at your skin that closely? You have an even tone as well, discolouration seems to make scars look worse.

Have you had any treatment at all?
