feeling good but realizing that since my skin is having more good days and in combination of wearing a light makeup - i now feel it difficult to leave the house without it, when my skin was really bad or just bad I would never wear makeup for fear of making it worse. So now I have like a different type of insecurity =\ having uneven skin tone and marks, or the occasional pimple or two .. or three.

Today is pretty horrible, I currently have no support from my mom at all, and I need her most. She tells me that many people will struggle with it for years and I will have accept it that I will have it for a long time. My new regimen : I am starting to show signs of being allergic to the new products I've been prescribed , just like with other topical treatments it starts to burn my face, I get red indented lines under my eyes , then I get hives ... My mum believes I am lying just so I can get Accutane.... I don't know what to say anymore

Story of my life haha

I know what you mean.

My skin was quite bad in high school and I never wore makeup. I did start wearing makeup regularly when I started uni and when my skin was still bad - so I did have that insecurity of having bad skin and feeling like I had to wear makeup, but even when my skin improved a bit on the regimen and I had time when it was basically just marks, I still couldn't face leaving the house without a bit of makeup on.

I still want to get to a point where I do feel fine without makeup because I don't like wearing it but feel I have to. 

 

That's great your skin is still doing so well! :)

You're not alone.  It's  sometimes very difficult for people without acne to understand what we go through.  I find it best to smile and keep it moving.  I can relate to having your skin suddenly be sensitive to topicals.  I was on Dan's Regimen for over a year and then suddenly, i developed eczema on my face.  I tried BP in small amounts and had the same reaction.  Now i got precribed retionoids and i am hesitant to use it.  Keep your head up hun.

Feeling blessed in spite of acne.  I am realizing what a great group of friends and family i have who has been and will be there for me no matter what i look like.  I also have my faith which has been with me at my high and low points.

 

Thank God

Hey guys, i'm new to acne.org!

        My acne was really bad last year, i mean it was all over my face: small red bumps covering every possible surface of the face. I was so insecure, I didn't really have good make up, and no face wash or treatment I tried was working.

        This year and over the summer, its gotten SO much better, all on its own! But what i'm left with is not only a few pimples now and then, but the nasty hyper-pigmentation left on my skin - the ghosts of pimples-pastgrinwink.gif I found acne.org a month ago, and my products for the regiment literally just arrived on my door steps, 4 days after I ordered it! Speedy delivery guys! 

        Im really excited, and I want to keep updating my progress on this site, I just don't know how to make my own blog post? I clicked on blog in my profile, but there isn't a button I can post with:(

       If anyone can help out, that would be great, and if anyone has the same-ish skin as I do, i'd love to get to know you!

Hey Liv :)

You can make a blog by clicking on community at the top of the site and selecting blog from the drop down. Then you should see a create new blog option to the right (a black button)

Alternatively, a lot of people create a thread in the personal logs section (there's a regimen logs section too) of the site to track progress and use it like a blog. 

 

All the best with the regimen - follow it as closely as possible and hang in there - patience is key :) Hopefully it goes well for you

My skin is breaking out quite a lot this week - they're really red and noticeable too :/ And a couple are a little painful

I'm annoyed because I'd signed up to do a fun run this weekend with some girls from uni and now the idea of going out in public without makeup,  when my skin is looking worse than it has been, is really making me want to not do it... It's pointless to wear makeup when you know you'll be spending most of the day in the sun exercising. 

So I'm hoping it at least calms down a little by the event day. And that I can somehow be confident enough for the day - forget what I look like and go out and enjoy it.

Go and have fun.  Once i'm out and away from the damn mirror, its like my acne is someone else's problem.  Let yourself have this moment.



Broke out in 3-4 inflammed pimples on my right inner cheek.  Inflammed acne on forehead and right mouth/jaw area.  Wanted to start my topicals tonight but decided to hell with it.  Gonna hold out a little longer (ideally i'd want to wait till June 30th but something tells me my will power is not that strong.  Feel anxious as all hell
