The Awkward Moment When... (Play It Fun)

125 posts in this topic

I know that we all feel in the same way about our acne, so I decided to make it a little fun!!! You have to play with "The awkward moment when..." related to your acne or a situation related! So we can laugh a little about ourselves (It feels good sometimes) and forget for a minute

about how hard is life living with Acne:

I start:

- The awkward moment when in a sleepover all your friends are already sleeping, and you are forever in the bathroom removing make up and cleaning your face.

-Accutane twice - Worked for a little while, then it all came back. NOT WORTH IT! Read the Accutane research post (Including mine) to see how Accutane can screw up someone's body and even cause acne itself.

-Differin, EpiDuo, BP. Tazorac, BHA, AHA - have used all of these at some point but never been more than 90% clear with any.

-As of Nov. 2010 - Stay away from too many carbs, especially high GI carbs. We were made to eat raw foods, not anything from a box! Eat grassfed meats!

-Trying to heal my gut with L-Glutamine, Zinc, and a lower-fat diet. Also trying iodine/selenium supplementation for thyroid.

you avoid going to public bathrooms, because you want the mirror all to yourself!

When you've painstakingly applied a heap of makeup to a pimple you have picked at atrociously, it dries out and cracks while you're play fighting with your boyfriend, it bleeds everywhere and you have to hide in the bathroom for fifteen minutes because it won't stop bleeding.

I hated my life that day. :lol:

When....your boyfriend asks "is everything okay in there?" because you've been in the bathroom for 30 minutes squeezing, picking and then trying to hide the evidence.

The Awkward moment is when people suggest you to use Proactive...when we all know Proactive is not the solution at all.

people like to succeed. but they hate successful people.

if you don´t accept who you are...who else is gonna do it?

If a guy doesn´t love because of your acne...If a guy doesn´t accepts you for who you are...than he was never worth your time.eusa_naughty.gif

Reading all of these, it's really amazing to see how so many of us lead a secret life in a way.

when you get home from being out on the town socializing, look in the mirror, and realize you've had 3 giant whiteheads form on your chin sometime between when you left the house and when you got back.
