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.

Sometimes I wonder about the future. Will I get a girl? Will I feel good about myself? Will I enjoy life? And etc.

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?

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

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.... sad.gif

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.

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.

Feel free to send me a message or e-mail. I am here to help.

To Clear skin,

Todd
