My breakout has stopped so I feel much better! I started drinking multivitamin again, maybe that helped. I am 100% sure my problem is internal.
I think I post too much here but I really don't have anyone to talk to when I feel down about my acne :(. I don't have anyone close to me who has this problem. They all have great skin which makes me feel even worse, you know?

I reckon it would be great to live in Narnia! If ever I win millions on the lottery, I'll be looking for an island. Org Island - you're all welcome! Posted Image

You know, I don't think there's anything wrong with posting here frequently, as long as we're being pro-active about treating our skin too. I must admit though that I got the balance wrong for several months last year. I think I started posting regularly around January 2011 and I was in here all the time being all negative about my skin. In fact, I don't doubt that there are some massive emo rants from me in this very thread, although I don't dare look back! Posted Image I suppose it was all the emotions I'd built up over thirteen years of struggling with acne and never talking to anyone about them. It did me good to let all that out and it was even better when I started working on my skin too. So I reckon as long as we get the balance right, it's perfectly fine to post away. Get to help and support each other along the way too so it's a win-win situation! Posted Image

Absolutely fucking shit...pardon my language, it feels better when I curse. Like in comparison to my skin in the summer I should be over the moon, but the more you improve the harder it is for you to take it when your skin gets a little worse.

I feel really hopeful about it today. I recently had three nasty pimples; two on the side of my face, and the other one on my thigh. The redness on all of them went down, and they seem to be healing now thanks to my cleanser, Dalacin T medicine & moisturizer that I put on them. I even went and bought Bio-Oil today due to my doctors recommendation. It's supposed to help with old acne scars, which is exactly my problem. I'm going to use this product for the next 3 months and see if it makes any improvement on my skin. :)

Cheeks clear! Face clear. Forehead WAS totally clear (and still rpetty much is) Except for one litlte stubborn red one in the middle. Just one. Two weeks ago it was thirty of them. Duac is a miracle. And I no longer experience flaking. So hopefully this one will tone down in a few days. Everyone gets the occasional zit still. Ive gone form liek 35 zits to one. I have some mild pigmentation left, which isnt visible in ALL lighting. But whatever, that'll heal up. Im growingo ut my bangs and ive been wearing my face hair free with some lgiht makeup. This one zit is like right in the middle so its annoying. But hooray! Acnes pretty much GONE. Duac, please give it a try.

Well, okay. The one on my forehead started to go down later yesterday and is almost gone....but I got another pimple non cheek, its actually realtively flat, kinda red though, looks like it may be another one of those 3 day MAX ones. Lets hope. I am now using Duac all over my face. Its less irritating than TTO in most cases. What I mean by all voer is not I put it ecerywhere. Ita just where I have acne. I rub it in though.

I'm feeling okay. Even though I didn't manage to go to work without makeup (and embrace my horrific skin) I feel good. I'm taking pro-active steps to help myself.

I feel like shit today because today marked the 3 months that I had been utilizing my topical regimen and I have seen little to no improvements. I currently have 1 huge on my cheek and several tiny ones near my chin/jaw line area. My right side of my face is rugged because of the under the skin bumps and the middle my forehead is a nightmare. Just shit, shit, shit. Back to the drawing board again....

OK, so I was so clear a while ago after 20-25 zits around mouth. They were small.. now I have like 8-9 medium size instead of small. I rather have like 15-16 tiny ones instead of medium size. They're located at different areas instead at one place.. like 2-3 at the right cheek, 2 at the left.. 2-3 forehead and no around mouth at all!! but there's one forming. ;\ That's OK I guess.. I am not too concerned 'cause summer approaching. I am usually clear during the summer. ^^;; Winter is always bad. I think my skin needs BP, but won't get any Posted Image. I saw people break out bad after 3-4 months not using BP.
but then they get clear for good. I am prepared for this.. Posted Image PS: It's been like 3 months without BP on my skin. Also, I heard good thing about apple cider vinegar to prevent break outs, so I decided applying on my entire face after fresh aloe vera and leave it on.

Today is even worse. Posted Image My pimples are dark red. I got like 2-3 big zits on my forehead which they are kinda dark red. I started using my hat a while ago.. I hope people don't think that I am wearing a hat because of my zits on the forehead Posted Image I am breaking with some zits on my cheek which is weird 'cause I don't break out there at all.. :|

It's that time of the month for me so I'm at a low. All I see in the mirror is a face full of ugly pustules, blackheads and near enough black marks. The marks are accumulating into whole patches now, not just random spots here and there. I keep torturing myself by looking at photos from two years ago when my face was flawless, I know it's making me feel worse but I just want my skin to be like that again. I hate acne. I hate how it makes me feel, how it changes my mood, how it stops me from looking other people in the eye because I don't want them to see my skin, how it's gotten worse all of a sudden.

I feel so ugly. I keep worrying about the future too - will it ever go away? Will I magically grow out of this? Am I going to be left with these marks everywhere for the rest of my life? :(

Not so much acne, but a response to picking. Just been feeling down these last few days I guess, and bored. Spent over an hour in front of the mirror this morning, picking at the odd lump or bump. There was nothing there really but now it's a mess, especially my right cheek which is pretty inflamed. Not a smart move at all. I wouldn't mind, but it's not as if I actually like what I see in the mirror. I could understand it if I was vain and I was admiring how I looked, but I hate how I look and I never like what's staring back at me, yet I can never seem to tear myself away from the mirror. Very strange. Still, onwards and upwards... Posted Image

Not good. Feeling particularly ugly today. I've been staring into the mirror and actually laughing in an odd sort of way at how hopeless it seems, my face is never ever clear, not even once has it cleared up for years and years, its unrelenting and starting to grind me down like it did last year. Looking in the mirror just convinces me that I look vile, its really quite painful when even my own reflection utterly disgusts me, especially when i look at photos of me as a little kid and I think 'man, i was a good-looking little guy!' but now I just look repulsive, its a shame.

My apologies for such negativity but I just had to vent those feelings, it helps to pick me back up Posted Image

I'm still having a breakout and today I was looking at a friend's flawless skin and feeling quite miserable. Just...whyyyyyyyyy
Sometimes I wanna ask her what exactly she does and eats and I wonder if I'd get good skin like hers, if I copied her.

I always look in the mirror and search for tiny bumps (my skin color) That indicates that it will form.. sometimes it doesn't.. I can also tell if it will be big or small. I seems to always do that. I gotta stop! ^^;; As of now, I searched and I don't see a lot of those bumps that may form.. I probably saw like 10-11, but they're so tiny and not noticeable. but might get inflamed. Posted Image Hopefully I get 3-4 out of 10 or w.e Posted Image Oh, and I do have redness and some zits.. I broke out with big zits, so it takes a while to heal ;\ Pretty sure there's way more than 10.. but I don't feel like counting. :D

Lol.. everyone is different :D Go raw vegan, focus more on Fruits and veggies and yoi might have glowiing skin and probably clear up. I am doing that and my skin is very smooth.. but I have zits. ;\
