The money! And not for frivilous reasons, either. I want my bills paid for me!

I'd improve my non-acne relate "lifestyle" first, then maybe look into some more expensive options for my skin that I wouldn't be able to afford before.


My Story:
I've had mild-to-moderate adult on-set acne (inflammatory) that started creeping up on me towards the end of 2009 (22 years old). Regarding previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've attempted, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and/or had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may reflect that. Considering I've never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I can only offer my humble advice based on my own personal experiences.



Finished my Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg/day every month for 6 months

Began 2nd course of Accutane on 10/13/2015
Even though my acne came back very mildly & nowhere near as bad as it used to be, I refused any topicals or antibiotics since I've already been through the "last resort" treatment without any problems.

My targeted length of time & dosage is currently the same as the 1st round.

i would definitley take the perfect skin over money any day of the week! i would give up everything i have (well except for my amazing hubby) to get back to my old self. when i was younger though i would have said the cash but with being older you realize that its not that big of a deal. i am happy as long as i can pay my bills and go out and do stuff on the weekends.

ain't that the truth!! its so hard to explain to people but its like you have to live in this skin for the rest of your life so you want it to at least look ok ya know? its amazing how much i took my nice un-scarred skin for granted before. it makes me sad and sometimes angry that this had to happen to me but i guess all of us on this board feel that way.

Money will come and go but time lost from not having clear skin will never come back.

With that much money I'm pretty sure I could keep my skin clear anyway.


Currently clear of acne with the occasional hormonal breakout. Check out my routines and progress updates here:

If my skin was completely uncontrollable then I'd go for the clear skin. However, at the moment I'm on accutane and try to keep my mind away from my face and focused on other things. Hence, I'd definitely go for the money.


Acne sufferer since 2007 - Have tried several different antibiotics, Retin-A, a variety of holistic approaches - as well as 9 months of Accutane between 2013 and 2014. Have also been on Dan's Regimen on and off since 2009.

Current state - clear-ish, but get small pustules daily and deep, inflamed boils at least once a week.

MONEY!

Of course I'll do anything to get cured and have the clearest of the clear skin I wished for. That's why I need lots of money just to try every treatment there is possible. If I had that much money, I think I could treat my acne better and I can look through more options in treating it. Plus, I could also use the remaining money for many things I have wished to do like fund and help animal rescue organizations and for blind people and for the elderly T_T and also, finally make my mom's dream house and for my father to finally rest and take time off from his work. I actually really do pray to have clear skin this instance but I know that if I will go through the process of trial and error I would learn so much more such as patience and humility and what else I don't know. Also, clear skin may be what I'm wishing for now but as because humans never seem to get contented easily, it is highly likely that after a few years of getting clear skin, I'll then depress over the fact that my hair is curly or that I have unruly eyebrows.. With money, I could buy anything that makes me happy and spend till I drop haha but seriously though, there are many solutions present for treating acne and I'm patient but I don't think I'll get another chance at that huge amount of money ever again xD

I'd prefer clear skin over $100 million. It will change my life for the better. I can always work like anyone else and make money that way. I'd rather be poor and handsome.

I take more pride in helping others than personal appearance. But that isn't to say a portion of that money wouldn't go to clearing my skin! :)

busted. so u are human. but i think people with bad tendency to acne/blocked pores/oily skin due to crappy genetics will barely benefit from the money (if at all) because it wont help. not to mention the scarring. so if u think money will help u, u must be one of the lucky ones.

if i would ever decide money over clear skin its not because it will help me get my skin better, its because it can make up for it in other means by improving the quality of my life.

but this is all a silly fantasy anyway... clear skin or 100kk $.. yeah right. i was unlucky enough to get to where i am now, and sadly my luck isnt going to change.
