Since I was 14 I have he acne on my chin, I am now 20. Within the past year I would definitely say its got better. I used to have constant tiny spots which whee just there. Didn't grow or shrink or anything. Now I don't get these and my breakouts are less frequent so I am hoping that it's finally starting to get better.
Id never say my skin has ever been severe, but moderate. It has totally ruined my teenage years and so many times prevented me from going out somewhere because of a bad breakout . Sometimes I will skip days off uni if it's particularly bad because I just can't face going in looking a mess. I always use makeup to cover it up , which I don't mind cause I love makeup but It would be nice to not have to focus all my time covering spots. I just feel like I've wasted so much of my life because of this and it prevents me from doing things. I've been to the doctors twice and they've been less than helpful both times! After trying countless over the counter products I feel like nothing will ever work. I feel almost selfish because people have it so much worse than me, but I'm still really affected by this and all I want is nice skin. If I have clear skin I feel soo happy and confident but as soon as I get another breakout I get so miserable. I know that I'm attractive and it doesn't stop me from getting male attention and dates etc but I'd feel much more confident around men if my skin was clear. I am a naturally very confident person but this holds me back from being myself so so much.
I just wanted to share how I felt.
