And I don't pop all of them but when I do, they stay there, hey not go away, be tried so many creams, antibiotics, face wash/mask, or even nothing to see what my skin needs and It just won't stop, it's so embarsssing I want to cry. eVeryone in  family has perfect clean skin, for when  they see mine, everyone comments on it,  literally feel like trash,  I'm already ugly and now acne is added to it, everyone I know has glowy perfect skin without makeup, except me,  nothin works no me,  itjust gets worse, if u knowwhat it is, please tell me, help Bc I've been so depressed.

I know right now you seem to be in a really bad state, but if you want help please listen. Please do not pop any of your pimples. That just aggravates your skin and the acne and spreads the acne. 

Follow a very mild and gentle skin care routine and see if that helps. See this article for more information. Also make sure your diet is sugar free at least for 2-3 weeks to see if it helps your acne. 


You should not allow acne to control you or your life. After having suffered from acne for 20 years I decided to share what I learnt and help others. PM me if you need more information or just support.

I am a soon to be esthetician and I give most dermatologists a run for their money (not trying to sound cocky). I had TERRIBLE skin so I understand the emotional toll it takes on you. I have A LOT of things to reccomend, but first I need to get to know you a little better so I can help to the best of my ability. The first thing that concerns me is you being uncomfortable around family. I understand not wanting strangers to see you when you feel your worst, but you shouldn't have to impress family. If they are going to make rude comments then you should try honesty. Say something along the lines of, "We all strive for 'perfection' and I don't appreciate you adding to the stress I already feel about my skin." Home is the one place you should feel comfortable letting your guard down and going makeup free. Another thing is makeup, of course we all want to conceal our imperfections but makeup is only going to exacerbate the issue. Plus there are many ingredients in makeup that clog your pores. Now time for the questions so I can get a better understanding (please don't think I'm being nosy, the more you disclose the more I can help). Also I will judge NOTHING you do, my sole intent on this site is to help people feel comfortable in their skin. With that said, how old are you? What a your current skincare regimen? If you can tell me things you've tried in the past that didn't work that would be helpful as well. Are you taking any supplements or medications? What is your diet like? Also, is it strictly whiteheads? Are you picking at the whiteheads? Again, I'm not judging but this can cause them to become cystic. Lastly, if you're COMFORTABLE posting a picture (obviously not  your whole face, just a very upclose image of the bumps only) that would be extremely helpful for me. In  meantime, work on keeping your stress levels down and focusing on something other than your face (I know this is challenging). Cheers!
