I just got a reallly really big zit on my left cheek, a new zit on my nose and back.. few back of my neck, and shoulder area.

And don't ever suicide, no matter what.. it's really not worth it in the end. If you look down on the road after you go through puberty & and/or done with accutane, you can get laser surgery to get rid of scars.. and bam you have perfect skin again. I do get depressed though..

Haha my scars arent easy though. I have a dogbite scar on my face. Then i have ice pick scars on my nose. Then all sorts of scars all over my cheeks, forhead and temples.

I dont mind the scars on the cheeks, forhead and temples because i know that those are much much easier to treat. However, my nose scars, i have never seen a success story about someone with nose indented scars. Not one post in any forum.

Though in the future, im planning to excise the dogbite scar and then close it up with a plastic surgeon of course lol.

I dont get why but my nose scars are the ones that bother me the most along with the dogbite scar. I mean, imagine having ice picks and bumps on your nose, in the middle of your face.

But yeah, i hope we both make it through this and come out of this dark tunnel and have that smooth acne free skin in the end.

What moisturizer? The one I've been using so far is Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. A little goes a long way, and it's one of the few I've used that doesn't make my face look shiny. Then, at night I use a thick cream like Cetaphil because it doesn't really matter how greasy I am.
