My friend and I were getting ready for a party and I was putting my makeup on and complaining about my zits, the usual. I said that my acne was my only insecurity, and if I had clear skin I wouldn't care about anything else, and my friend said, "its awesome that youre so confident"

This might not make sense, but it kind of gave me more confidence

I've never gotten any positive comments from people about my acne, but I have complimented a couple of boyfriends when they get occasional breakouts. I know it's weird, but I think they look so cute and like teenagers. It reminds me of all the dudes I used to crush on or date back when I was a teen.

I guess just.. when people say I look attractive. Like I feel like my scars are all people can see sometimes, but when people still find me attractive it makes me feel good, like they can see past the scarring. I am a cashier at a local grocery store and every now and then a man will say, "hello, beautiful lady" or something like that and it makes my entire day. And I know it's not that I did my makeup well! Because you can't hide rolling scars with makeup, lol. My ex-boyfriend also said I was beautiful all the time and on days where I was really self-conscious he would actually kiss my scars. He didn't care and he always looked past them. It was the biggest relief to me in the world and I will never forget him for treating me so special.

My boyfriend, who has always been the most wonderfully supportive person and met me when my skin was at it's worst:

"I know you wear your hair down and you put on makeup when you go out because you're self-conscious, but I love seeing you without makeup and your hair pulled back at home because I get to see something no one else sees - how truly beautiful you are."

Aaaaaaaaw.

"What a lovely complexion!" To this day, I'm not sure what she meant, but it really stuck with me - thank you, nurse!

And sympathy (not pity) is always appreciated. This morning a coworker was telling me about dealing with psoriasis, and how hard that was. It was very kind.

As I get older and older my acne seems to fade away more and more.

Makes me guess my acne is hormonal . So the nicest thing someone has said anything about my acne was myself . I tell myself " yea, your getting through it. We're almost there " .

The beautician told me I had great skin with nice closed pores and that my closed comedones aren't that bad :)

My mum came in to my room this morning and said that my skin is looking better especially my forehead and then remarked how soft it is.

That at least makes up for what my dad said the other day. We were at a restaurant (my family and I) and we were ordering desert. I didn't want anything because I'm not a desert person, never liked cakes or ice cream! My dad randomly said 'it's good you're not having anything because you've got enough spots as it is'. What I don't understand is why anyone thinks commenting like that is acceptable, or necessary, keep it to yourself FFS.

It breaks my heart that they say these things and don't understand what it does. Anyone with skin problems will tell you that it only takes one throwaway comment to completely change your mood (or even your life), especially if it's from someone close to you. It's hard not to hate the person but you refrain because you know they don't understand.

I suppose the thing I hate the most is the fact that everyday has something related to acne in it and I'm tired of it. Whether it be going to the doctors, someone making a comment good or bad, not going out because of it, discussing it in a wider context with my family. I'm determined to at least have a week where it doesn't come into my life in any way other than me doing my normal routine.

It's weird because every time I think my skin is bad, someone compliments me as opposed to when I think it's good, I get negative comments. This happens frequently and I don't understand. Is there something wrong with my eyes?!

A lady (the international student officer at university) once said that my smile is so nice that she did not even notice my acne, and that it will makes me look younger.

This was said to me during my first week in England. I told her that making eye contact was difficult because of my cysts, and she was very nice.

The nicest thing anyone's ever said to me is just that it's improving I guess?

I remember the worst things I've had said. One that sticks out is from a couple of years ago when I was at school. A boy who was never particularly nice to me anyway, one day decided to tease me worse than normal. I was dealing with it until he said 'have you ever heard of Clearisil?'. Something about that comment made me snap and I kicked him in the balls.

I got sent home and given a weeks detention which wasn't how I wanted to be spending my time but I felt better so I guess it wasn't all bad :P

I had a friend who told me that my acne and redness was cute cause it made me look like i was blushing constantly for better of for worse at least she didn't aks me what the hell is wrong with my face. Other then that it makes me feel better when people say they don't even notice the acne and can look past it anyway :)

Last night I was telling a young MUA that I was broken out and bummed about it, and I pointed at a scab I made on my chin that I couldn't cover, as if to say 'yes, I am mentioning it so you don't have to' like overweight people tend to do, as a pre-emptive defense. She said "I thought it was a beauty mark, the rest of your complexion is so beautiful" (I was able to hide most of it with extensions and makeup, but that made me feel a little better.

I was fussing to my friend about how I was breaking out and how I hate having acne and her boyfriend stared at my cheek and got really close to my face and said ''shut up''

That made me feel 100x better.

Best reason to be told to shut up, ever.

I remember this one girl liked me who was really hot, back in when my acne was bad. I didn't understand how she could possibly want to go out with me when I looked like that. Anyway, one day she wore this one shirt that revealed a lot of her titties. They had all kindz a acne! Cystic, too. She kept walking up to me, and revealing them.

1. I think she did that to make me feel better. I didn't realize this at the time, but I almost felt like shit when I did.

2. I don't think her titty acne was usually that bad. I think she made it worse to make me feel better, which almost made me feel like shit when I realized this.

3. WTF?!?!

People tend to remember the bad more than the good, because it usually affects them more, unless the good was just that good.

Relax

I'm a vegetarian

I suspect I have leaky gut which caused food sensitivities which lead to acne. Note: Food Sensitivity is different from allergies and intolerances! I stopped doing things to my face, and started doing nothing but focus on diet. My acne has never been more clear. I'm recovering from cystic acne.

Status: %90 clear

The nicest thing anyone can do about my acne is look me straight in the eyes when we're talking(not at the acne around my face) and never say a thing about acne at all. I find it quite rude when people complain about having one pimple when talking to me because if they think their one zit is gross, what do they think about my face full of zits!? Like I said, the nicest thing I think someone can do is to never mention acne and treat me like any other person.

I've been breaking out somewhat and have been a bit of a drama queen about it. I have psychological issues with my skin, which I think border on some form of OCD/BDD. But I was crying to my friends about it yesterday, and they were all so kind about it. They all told me they hadn't even noticed I was breaking out and that it really wasn't bad at all. Maybe they were lying, who knows, but it comforted me to think that people really notice less than we think. I also hung out with a bunch of people yesterday and not one person stared at my skin or treated me any differently. It made me feel good about myself, even if I do have some skin troubles right now.
