Acne Is Forever

23 posts in this topic

You know what Bubbles, I was actually feeling depressed over my acne today. But after reading your post, I'm happier than I've ever been in a very long time.

Why? Easy. You made me realize one simple and fundamental fact of life. Career, marriage, children... like anything worthwhile in life, they depend on your inner beauty. Never your outer beauty. Does your marriage/career/children disappear when you stop being beautiful? Of course not. Acne may make us ugly on the outside, but it's completely up to us to be ugly on the inside.

As for you, however, you're ugly outside and in.

I agree that Acne is forever. Even when cured, you may have scars in your skin or your memory..

But the world isn't such a shallow place. People with acne are still able to have careers and find love.

My dad also had cystic acne and my parents have been married for 30 years this July and they had me.

Having acne hasnt stopped them in life dont let it stop you.

Guys don't take Bubbles so seriously. She legitimately has a psychological problem and was/is undergoing professional treatment.

Almost all of her posts are negative/pathological. From what I've seen of her on this forum, Bubbles had:

- Verbally abused a girl with severe acne

- Wrote this vitriol (one of many)

- Described a forum member who advocated for diet changes as "batshit insane"

- Was extremely condescending towards other forum members (saying a PhD candidate got her degree from "degrassi high" because the candidate disagreed with Bubbles on the science of acne)

And this is just from the few months I've spent on this board. Personally I think she should be disciplined, or at the very least, discouraged from posting until she resolves her mental problems.

If I recall everything I have seen from bubbles has been way too heavy, depressing and negative and possibly some trolling or mental illness going on. Who knows, I know I am making great progress in my acne and other skin conditions by heavy research, persistence, diligence, and patience.

I agree that there should be some repercussions for her actions. Imagine being a new member trying to familiarize yourself with this site and the advice that is has to offer and read her post first, what a buzz kill. If you have not been on here long enough to know otherwise, she could be doing some damage to the newcomers whom I am interested in trying to help. I am surprised that you have lasted this long on here, we should all go in and have bubbles banned until her posts are not detrimental to this forums evolution.

I get that she needs to vent. But there's a fine line between saying "I feel hopeless", and what she wrote above.

To the newcomers: Bubbles is basically this forum's crazy cat lady.

Hello everyone. I haven't been to the forum in ages. But I just wanted to report that I still have clear, pretty skin. I was one of the people who was on here feeling suicidal as recent as a couple of years ago. IT CAN AND DOES GET BETTER! You just have to find the right medication for you. I've been doing the regimen again for a couple of years now and my skin is crystal clear. I also got over an eating disorder *(related to trying to cure acne through diet) and started enjoying foods like cheese again. These two things made a big difference.

Please don't give up and please don't listen to bullshit like in the original post here. You are not born with acne and you will not have it your entire life. It's a condition that needs to be treated, just like any other medical condition.


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

Acne can certainly be chronic but to suggest that a person will never marry and never become anything due to their acne is rather ridiculous. Even aggressive acne can be "controlled" (not cured) or markedly lessened by a oral medication or topical regimen. While there is no cure there is effective management strategies as with any inflammatory disease.

LOL, this was very funny. I mean forever, ever ever, foooreveer, can you confirm this bubbles? I do agree with bubbles on one thing, that alternativista or whatever is batshit insane.

P.S. Bubbles, could you be more active on this forum, I love your posts, you bring hysterical joy to my life, you are just one unique individual. All these other acne ridden people are like zombies and look like zombies too

Actually it's not. I thought I was going to have acne forever but I was wrong, it's now gone and I have great skin.
