How ya feelin' about your acne today?

7,748 posts in this topic

I was hoping to find a thread with people just postin' their feelings on any given day. I didn't see one so here it is!! [if there is one though, delete this thread]

So just post if you're feeling good, bad or however about your acne when you feel the need to vent! :)

---------------------------------------------------------

As for today, I feel crappy...I am going to miss class tomorrow cuz I just don't wanna go out. I have 6 pimples that hurt [i guess those are cysts] and a cluster of little ones as well as scars 'n some regular ol' pimples. :doh:

it sucks and i'm frustrated!!! >:(

Oh but a positive is my forehead is clear!! nothin but 2 or 3 lil itty bitty scars.

It's not too bad these days; a few cysts on my cheeks but that's it; they've filled with pus by now and will soon go away on its own.

I woke up after just a few hours of sleep, took a shower, looked in the mirror...thought I looked like crap, but I was gonna meet up with a friend so was like "whatever". At some point I had to go to the bathroom at a McDonalds, went in and looked in the mirror, looked pretty good in that mirror, so I was happy :)

well kept on staring into the reflection at the train station to see if my face had became worse o.o

well in the end kinda give up and stop staring...since you can't spot new ones you won't feel so bad! I feel really frustrated when a new one pop out and i keep on thinking about it...

Okay here's what I'm thinking, I'll do it in point form it's just easier that way. :P

-Red marks are gettin' me down, they feel like they're getting worse. (I know that's practically impossible but I'm having a bad day, sue me.)

-Over the past few months acne is slowly coming back after getting off the tane... this is even more depressing because once you taste what it's like to be clear you never wanna go back.

-Been slacking in my diet and it's showing. I need to be more strict with myself.

-Got a pimple on my cheek, since most of my acne is around my mouth this was particularly depressing. Haven't had acne on my cheeks since before tane, or as I like to call it "The dark times".

Oh and I thought I had a date to grad (prom, for you Americans) but she changed her mind. This was a severe blow to my ego.

Best of luck to you all.

The big zit in the middle of my forehead dried out so it scabbed and I keep picking it.See, I use foundation and all, and it's no secret that if you have a scab foundation can't hide that. That's why I pick all the skin away around so it doesn't scab up again and I have to keep it hydrated 24/7 :doubt: Urghh. So mad.

A lot better than I have in about a week! I always break out about five days before my period, and this time was horrible. It's healing up very nicely though, and quickly... Although the medicine I'm currently using burns so badly when I apply it that I groan.

I don't feel good about it, but I don't feel as bad as I have! :D

really shitty.. i thought using the 6% bp cleanser would clear it up... WRONG! i seem to be breaking out more than before and the red marks are getting darker. i just started using dans bp and it better clear me up before xmas! ugh im soooo pissed and i feel so fucking ugly. im not a bad looking girl but i know id look 2939393302002x better if my face wasnt so fucking spotty.

sorry had to rant


Morning: Wash face with ZapZyt Acnepack wash.

Moisturize with CeraVe

Dan's BP

Night: Wash with just water

Moisturize

BP all over face

1000mg B5 (helps with scars and keeps oil production under control)

I also take 10-30 min walks everyday. It has been proven that walking is good for your complexion. It gets your heart pumping and improves circulation- and better blood flow means your skin receives plenty of the nutrient-rich blood it needs for optimal health.

That's what I'm going through, and then some other, different, new kind of breakout for me. My goodness, will it never, ever end?

Yaz, you suck!

I feel completely fine about my acne. I almost always do. I've accepted it as a part of me, whether I have clear skin or some pimples. I am me regardless and that is simply the best feeling in the world. =)
