In Topic: Painful Acne (Emotional And Physical)

Yesterday, 06:56 PM

When my acne was at it's worst I had a breakdown, I found myself crying most everyday and going to class felt like it wasn't an option. Always trying to cover or hide my face. It was hell and I never want to go back - yet sometimes when I have a new breakout or zit I feel those feelings may return. You've gotta find solace in the little things, good things. Focus on the future, what goals you want to achieve, no matter how small - anything to keep you motivated and from falling into the spiral of acne related depression. Immerse yourself in things that make you happy - new music, books, sports, tv, friends, anything!

As for your acne, I was on bcps for quite a while for my acne [when it was as bad as ever] and I saw improvement - wasn't a cure though (just putting that there), have you spoken with an obgyn or gp?

Remember your acne doesn't determine your value whatsoever!

My 2 cents when it comes to your routine: exfoliating daily can cause major irritation, I would put that aside. And drinking mostly, if not only, water definitely helps.

Not sure if you're referring to how long after the morning routine, do you wash your face at night ... but it's 10-12 hours between your night and day routine.

Whatever you're feeling is real and true to you. Acne is the worst and really makes you only see the bad things in life. The important thing is to keep going, maybe make adjustments to your routine to try and help with your dryness, be hopeful - and like the above poster, focus on things you enjoy, that makes you happy or at least take your mind off your skin. You can feel bad/sad/angry about your skin, just try to not let those emotions completely take over.
