I would do anything to clear my face. I want my confidence back. Without confidence, you are not worth anything.

Life or money? silly question - of course i'd pick a life. Fuck the cancer - at least that shit does not ruin your life when you are young (usually). Acne is the most fucked disease. Of course we have others like leprosy or down syndrome?, but how many people have these, and how many are fucked up with acne?

XXI century god damn it, just die already, fuckin' b*tch

I would rather have clear, perfect skin and an average salary than be wealthy and have severe acne. Also, spending more money doesn't necessarily mean that you'll get clear skin. Antibiotics work much better on me, and they're cheaper than the total amount of money me/my parents spent on topicals.


Current regime:

 

One tablet of Bactrim DS every night

Atralin every other night

Acanya every morning

Would I be allowed to make use of the money to fix my skin, or would my skin not be curable in this case?

Probably already replied to this, but money money money! I would pay for clear skin. 

 

At the end of the day, we complain about acne now, but if we were clear we would find something else to dislike about ourselves. With money, would could get the best dermatologists, personal trainers, dietitians and have our hair and makeup done for us every day.

I would choose being healthy in general (not only acne) over 100 million. If we are talking only about acne, i don't think so.. it's difficult times we are living.


What clears my acne:

Spironolactone 100 mg + limiting dairy

indoxyl (duac) gel + aha + baby brush for comedones.

Even if your acne is as bad as it gets, you should still take the money. Yeah, it'll suck having acne still but you'll have $100M. You can get plastic surgery if you wanted to, I don't know. But $100M > clear skin imo.

100 million dollars = dream come true
Boom clear skin = dream come true
...
Hard decision considering my acne is on the border of moderate and severe but I would have to choose the money.
I could buy the house of my dreams, car of my dreams, do the things I only dream about. Plus I could actually buy clear skin. Like buy a better diet, less stress, better lifestyle, best acne medicine etc!!!

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 acne in a nutshell -- Mild-to-moderate, adult on-set, began late 2009. Regarding my beliefs and previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I have been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here will reflect that. Considering I have 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 am still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.

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.
