Hey there, i did have an old acne.org account here but its been a long time since i logged on and forgot all my details so had to make a new one.
In fact, your post MADE me make a new one just cause i wanted to comment on it.
Your skin is amazing, im sorry but if you think thats bad skin you wouldnt even believe what im dealing with. I would have so much confidence with skin like yours, you look amazing. I know better than most that someone simply telling you this means nothing. And ive got no answers. But your skin looks absolutely fine, no-one is gonna focus on your skin for a second, no-one is gonna double take, nothing. You look like a totally normal person.
Really hope you can go out on more dates and just forget about your skin, you really shoud, you look fab!
Hey bubs, wow, glad you decided to rejoin acne.org...thanks so much for commenting and offering your input. I went through severe acne last year, the pics I posted of my skin are nothing compared to what I went through (check my log for progress pics). Don't despair, it does get better. I am healing myself without any medication and it's been a long road that's why I was disappointed that, despite all my efforts, my skin texture still doesn't look perfect. But I'm glad all of you reassured me, I really needed that
Wishclean, you are beautiful!!! Wow, I am so so sorry you had this experience and your story brought tears to my eyes. I hope that you don't let this completely deter you from dating because of one person who is not someone you would really want to be with anyways. In the end we all want someone who will love us despite our flaws. I am not saying you are flawed, because I would give to have your clear skin right now. Your complexion is good, you don't have any crazy scars or redness. Remember people read our energy as well, you were not feeling comfortable and maybe that came across.
Either way, I've been in your situation before when I first was single and just started breaking out. It really hurt my feelings but a few months later I met someone else who understands what I am going through, doesn't care if I have a breakout and I can just be myself with. That is rare and I am sorry this guy failed you. Dont' give up, keep your pretty head up and we will help you get your mojo and confidence back. Sending you lots of love!
Thanks for the kind words. I was actually feeling very low when I posted that, I felt rejected personally and professionally...all sorts of rejections came at me this week. But the guy did end up asking me out again, who knows why....I will try to be confident when I meet him tomorrow and hopefully things will work out. I'm glad you found someone you can be yourself with...hopefully I will find that too! xxx
I am going to be SUPER SUPER honest with you, and you skin does not look bad at all.
I can understand you insecurities...because I am anal about my skin- but I am 100 percent honest when I say- you look great.
I know how you feel, and don't worry about the guy. I have had many experiences like this too. Some people are just flaky. I could tell you 4 stories I have experienced like that, especially with online dating.
It's 100 % NOT you.
I am new to this site, I have actually been dealing with problems with my skin that came out of the blue and have been driving me crazy. It has been a roller coaster ride and now it seems I have no more break outs, and I am slowly improving my skin texture. What I am using now seems to be working great. Since you also share the same concern as I do ( texture) Maybe some of these products will be usefull to you?
The one thing that I bought that works absolutely AMAZING is Redmond healing clay, it actually can be eaten as well ...which I don't do, I apply it as a mask. It literally sucks and sucks everything out, its a great skin detox.
Thats the website.
Another supplement I came across- which I am convinced has been my GOLD, is THYMEX
Here is that link as well ---- it suppots the Thymus gland, the main gland of the immune system and it even helps people with mrsa
Another great supplement, is Relora - it helps reduce cortisol from stress, and high cortisol can fuel acne
Also if you are really having a bad skin texture day and you want a saving grace,
this make up- AMAZINGGGG.
Just some things to help, but sweetheart you are beautiful!
Hi Michelle, thanks for the recommendations. I am currently taking 2 supplements, and I am a little afraid to change up my routine at the moment but I'll keep your suggestions in mind. The supplements sound very interesting....how long have you been taking them?
inositol, DIM [had to stop for now, don't seem to need them anymore!], digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
