no being a guy with acne is ten times worse then a girl.

one you have makeup dont care what you say any guy that sees a girl with make up and can tell she has acne still it isnt anything as bad as a guy going out in the day having these terrible angry red marks and acne all over the face that he cant cover up at all. two, you can take bc pills to control hormonal acne! i wish guys had that!! lol

trust me guys having acne is ten times worse no girl likes a guy with acne. i know tons of girls who have acne and cover it with makeup and they still look hot! i wish guys could wear makeup and get away with it without being on tv!!

contemplating starting to go out without makeup. I haven't done this since 14/15. The only reason i'm contemplating this is because i'm going BLOODY INSANE!! There's a little voice in my head that keeps saying "you did this....you caused.....it's your own fault......" it's torture. And the fact that i've got no morivation or drive to do anything anymore even when i'm home makes me wonder if it's true. going out without mkakeup would give me the worst looks ans comments i've gotten in a long time and it would remind me that i'm like this for a reason.

Having said that haven't got the courage to go out without makeup. Once I was at my dad, forgot my makeup and I cried like a tortured infant cause I ddin't know what to do. All I could think back to was that timee at 14/15. I had to call my sister so she could bring me her makeup on her way to work....Posted Image aaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Posted Image

I feel disgusting. I have a huge pimple that I can't cover from everyone to see and now little pimples are appearing...I've scheduled an appointment at a new dermatologist. I hope he can help me! My regimen works but not well enough because I'm so afraid to touch my face and I get mini break outs too often :(. I think I got this breakout because someone rubbed my cheek with dirty hands recently and I didn't have anything with me to clean my face. And also there was a lot of kissing on the cheeks from people because of New year and Christmas. I never let people do this! ugh I knew this would happen. Just when I was clear again!! It never ends *sigh*
mild acne with redness on my cheeks.
supplements: 50mg zinc, 1000mg vit C, multivit
other: bio probiotic yogurt
regimen: A.M. - uriage roseliane fluid, eucerin redness relief daily perfecting lotion P.M.- uriage roseliane fluid, Suki white willow toner, eucerin redness relief night creme
spot treatment: witch hazel

So the scab fell off sometime during the night...so, were back with the slight pink bump. Whatever it was covered easily and im not so paranoid about cumps in broad daylgiht. The other one either needs to be dried out of popped, becuase that is one beautiful pustule or somethingl iek that, maybe less extreme. Anyways Im feeling beautiful day, and my foreheads getting better. Some TTO, and these mtuherfuckers can finally be gone

Pretty good overall just some very small pimples appeared on my jawline, but they'll go away.
And my skin really likes aloe vera gel. Why the hell didn't I try it earlier?

I was feeling amazing and thought my skin would clear up very good . No I was wrong . I went two steps back because on new years I wore this foundation that might've broken me out . Sigh* I don't know what breaks me out or not ATM and my skin was looking a lot better with dryness but it's reversing . I guess because I took this multivatamin last week and maybe the vitamin e in it helped . Ran out since last week so I need to get some and test them out if that's what really helped the dryness/flakiness . I just hope my skin gets better in 2 weeks , have another special occasion -_-

Well the two huge unicorn horns, have eather almost disspaered or scabbedo ver and shruken, down they dovered up real good, and my forheads looking good. Unelss i turn into the sun. For osme reason a have a crap load of these small colorless dots all voer my forehead. I mean okay like 10 of them. and they look like acne bumps wheni turn in the sun. But when you look straight on in a mirro theyre invisble. Ill jsut leave em alone, and let them pass. So my forehead acutally is looking alot better. My left cheek surprsinigly has borken out the right one, oddly has the littel pink bump on it that ij ust noticed, or two. Theyre pinkish, and flat to the touch, but have the ever so lsightest bump in the light, its mostly the oclor that stands them out. Whatevs, some tea tree oil and theyll hide away. My nose and the top of my forehead are rather dry, my nose has been getting (in the crevices) a bunch of whithead pockets (pinsized but sitll EW) and so i have to pop em and TTO em so the infection doesnt spread so its dry as fuck there right now. But anyways, a little TTO on my barely potential. Let my forehead od whatever the fuck it is with its mini bumps (in my expereince they hela themselves, and its better to leave them the fuck alone, since theyre colorless and small and not relaly noticeable) and let the scab stuff hela. So yeah, my face is looking pretty decent. My new makeup feels kinda heavy, but whatever. It covers and looks nicer than my old shit ,and its Lcnique so its supposed to help breakouts.

Ugh, I realize all my posts have horrid typo's. Don't mistake me for illiterate, I can spell, ahahaha. I just rush through and type too fast. I'm starting to contemplate if those tiny dots are thhat rash i mentioned a wihel back, my neck is a little itchy today. Whatever, its a seemless thing.

Feeling pretty good myself. I've been out a couple of times this week and was out all day in harsh weather on Wednesday. There was a time when I'd return home from somewhere to look in the mirror and find a bunch of new pimples. Not this time. In both instances, my skin was exactly the same as when I'd left the house that morning - the tone hadn't changed, it wasn't oily at all, no new pimples. I even treated myself to a couple of foods which I'd been avoiding in order to clear my skin and consuming those hasn't bothered my skin at all either. If it is going to be the case, generally speaking, that I'll be able to go about my business and do as I wish without worrying what's going on with my skin, that's such a weight off, I bet removing that source of stress and anxiety will do it the world of good, too.

So I had quite a trifle iwth the whiteheads on mu nose after the shower, stuck a clean needle in the them about 50 times (no irritation) They just lcosed over withp us agian and again. I tihnk I got them tkaen care of though. That earea was So dry so i put my hleaing lotion around, also that part of my cheek got a few tiny little pink bumpies (theyre teeny, smaller than a needles tip almost...., the actual zit...but theyl eave quite osem redness, beucase theres like 4) So i was careful not to corss over borders with helanig lotion and those.Some i tohught were zits were jsut red marks form a while ago, that sometimes like to flare up for no reason. Theyre small though and i have TTO on them. I suspect them gone by Saturday. My forhead.....so many unsignifaicant bumps....Some are clearing after TTO. Theres a stubburn one up high, by my hiarlnie under my bangs (not a fat red one...but a bitch) The UH's are scabbing over and dried and shrinknig (although one got a peraly wihtehnead after the shower witch i promptly poked out iwth a needle and dried it with TTO.
So general status : bad ones on forehead helanig, samll one problem though Overall: better.
Cheeks: they were clear all break and this isnt relaly zits just...little shit bleh bleh's. Overall: Okay
Whole face: Doing finne:)
