I like to think scars give you character!! yours aren't bad!

well today i woke up w/some gnarly whiteheads, one under my nose [for some reason they like it there] and it wasn't really 'popable', my only option was to pick it, and I didn't cuz I didn't wanna deal with the repercussion ...so I had to go to school w/some whiteheads and it was horrible. don't know how I did it...oh right w/my head held low. but i just hate poppin' zits.

I'm getting a lot of cystic ones too. grr.

I feel wonderful, fantastic, alive, and feel like I can do anything. Nothing is going to get in my way. Not acne, not people, nothing. I CHOOSE to live life today. I know I am on my way to clear skin. Why? Because I am improving my lifestyle. I am eating more healthy, improving my sleeping habits, exercise regularly, have a positive attitude and am happy for no reason, and get outside as much as possible for fresh air and sunlight.

I am not bragging... I am making a point. Are you really going to let acne control your life? Or, are you going to begin controlling your acne and living your life as you want to live it.

You have a choice... what choice are you going to make today? I hope you choose to be happy. You are a living human being, what else could you ask for?

To Clear Skin,

Todd

99% Clear in 5 months through improved lifestyle. I continue to improve my life as much as possible. As in living as healthy as possible and at the same time, being as happy as possible.

  • Healthy diet
  • Exercise on a regular basis
  • Adequate sleep (8 hours for me)
  • Fresh air daily
  • Sunlight daily (vitamin d3 supplement for winter months - michigander!)
  • Living a stress free life (way easier then you think) is all it takes!

Oh, and wash your face with water! I do this and use a little bit of tea tree oil and jojoba oil.

I broke out eventually around my mouth.... At least I've been clear for months..... but it will go away quick.

It's small but it hurts when I move my mouth.... :(

Also, I am getting 2-3 tiny acne on my forehead!

I swore that if I keep breaking out I am going to Puerto Rico and stay there....

Because in puerto rico most people are clear.. I hardly see anyone with acne there.

I think I will have a better life there because I have wonderful families in Puerto rico.

Best way to make your skin smooth and clear eventually:

Plant-based diet is the best medicine for everything.. That's if you consume at least 80% raw, mainly from veggies and fruits.

Exercising: cardio is great for skin and lifting a bit.

Thinking positive and try not to stress or think about acne.

I am doing these and my skin is currently very smooth and clearing up!

I am a vegan raw 100%. I feel better, have more energy, saving animals a year, glow skin, I look younger, etc.

Why do you "hate" it? You can choose to accept who you are and be happy in life. I know this is not at all easy, but you must believe in yourself. You are a living human being and their are millions of people all around the world that don't give a shit to how you look.

They care about who you are on the inside. All that matters is who you are on the inside. By improving your lifestyle, your acne will begin to slowly go away.

Start to smile more often. When you smile you are happy for that moment in time. Watch a funny youtube video and engage in laughter. This can make a strong impact on how you feel about yourself and life.

It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside. Their are millions of people in this wonderful world that could careless about how you look. They care about who you are on the inside. They want you to fulfill your purpose in life. They want you to make a difference. Your looks don't matter.

Acne is a skin disease, right? Their are hundreds of diseases, cancers, and sicknesses. And many people die from them. You can't die from acne. That's great news, isn't it?

But, you can cure acne by an improved lifestyle. This includes a healthy diet, getting adequate sleep, exercising regularly, managing your stress, being happy, and being outside often for fresh air and sunlight. Believe you are on the correct path to recovery and you will notice a difference.

Do not let acne control you. Instead, control it.

No. The big moments are gonna come. You can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are."

Woke up, went to the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror.

Looking not so bad compared to what i already looked like recently.

But still broke down in tears...

For two f&%*ing years it goes away and comes back...Goes and comes...

I wouldn't be so upset if it weren't for the coming events in which I want to look quite well...

When i remember(or see in pics) how i looked when i didn't have acne...Really hurts...badly...

Sorry for so depressed thoughts :rolleyes:

I want to kill myself right now.

:( Hopefully those feelings will pass!

My mom is workin' my nerves.

She said 'You're breaking out more' and I said 'I know, i can't help it' ...she told me I need to pop them but there's nothing to pop! She thinks I'm stressed for no reason and that's why I'm breaking out.

I think she think it's my fault I have acne and I can make it go away if I tried a little harder. UGH :dry: she makes me so angry.
