Hey guys!  As all of you know, having acne, no matter how mild or moderate it is, can be a daunting thing.  It can lead us to isolate ourselves and contribute to our already fragile self esteem. It becomes especially hard dealing with it when it seems that everyone around you has passed that stage.   I personally find that knowing or being able to be around people with acne makes me feel less self conscious and somewhat at home.  This had me thinking that maybe there were other people out there who felt the same as i did.

 

So what do i propose?  Not sure exactly but was wondering if anyone from the NYC area would be interested in forming a local support group (both online and in person) where we could discuss all things acne but also just get to know new people who share something in common (acne) and can relate to the feelings that come along with that.

 

As i said, just something that i was thinking about

I would be interested if I was there. But I live way down South. Good luck though! You won't necessarily find people locally on this forum but I imagine if you make a post on craiglist you will. So many people in NYC and I imagine a bunch of them have acne and are feeling depressed. Who knows, you could really help someone!


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

 

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The  lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

 

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

I think that's an awesome idea. I feel like there's a group for everything and I always see people doing "meet ups" for various things. I live in FL but I'd be down
Morning:Cerave foaming face wash in shower. Moisturize with Cerave/ derm cream samples. Pur Minerals foundation, original formula.
Night: Cerave face wash and Clarisonic every 3 days or so for exfoliation.
Internally: 40mg of Accutane started 3/16/13! 80mg started 4/15...DONE 8/19/13! OTC bcp blaahhh:/ Try to eat as healthy as I can and balance stress levels.
Please let it stay!

Thanks for the responses guys and gals.  That always seems to be the issue....everyone is so far away.  Wil keep searching though.

 

Hope you all are doing well

While my acne has calmed down...(had a sudden onslaught of cystic acne about a year ago) since I just finished accutane two~months ago...I now have pretty moderate/severe scarring and absolutely hate feeling isolated. I am from NYC (go to school in Long island) and would totally go to a get together like this if you could organize it.

 

you would have my support and I would try my best to make it.

Cool!.  Hopefully more people are interested as well!

Hi, i just read your introductory post.  I live in Queens but work in Manhattan (i can pretty much travel -which New Yorker doesn't right?)

 

It would be great for all of us to connect and just share ideas but also to be around people going through the same thing (maybe see a movie, explore, etc).

 

I am definitely up for organizing this

Ok, so i would love to get this going as the weather is getting nice - ok, not really, but spring is right around the corner.  When is everyone free and what would you all like to meet up and do?

I think it's a great idea and forming a real life support group of this kind will probably help a lot of people. I'm a little too far away...down in West Virginia, but I'd definitely go if I lived closer. Good luck to you guys.

-Clean and Clear Foaming Cleanser
-Dan's 2.5% BP 
-Jojoba oil as moisturizer
 
Nightly Regimen:

-Cetaphil moisturizer + a few drops of Jojoba oil

I think it would be  a good idea only if we can do other things then talk about acne. It'll be a way to get meet other people and get our minds off of thinking about how crappy acne is. We don't need a meetup to turn into an acne support group because that is what this forum is for.
