In Topic: I Can't Get Over The Bullying I Endured In High School Because Of Acne

04 April 2015 - 05:54 PM

School was the worst experience in my entire life and I too have a lot of built up resentment and anger. It got so bad at one point I found a lot of the bullies on facebook and messaged them if they had regrets about the way they were at school. All but one never replied and blocked me, which to me implied they were ashamed and wanted to pretend nothing happened. Some of them have kids now which scares me because a lot of them (the girls) were physically abusive. I have extreme social anxiety and get panic attacks in large crowds or even just walking through town. 

 

The one who did reply apologised and for me that helped provide a little bit of closure. I'm not saying you should stalk these people or anything lol but maybe if you get the chance ask them why. You are a better person than they will ever be and the fact you've managed to survive this far proves that. Try not to let it eat away at you too much because its not healthy, I know! Hang in there!


In Topic: Blotchy Un-Even Skin - What Treatments?

Hey I agree your skin looks lovely and plump! I would suggest a gentle cleanser oh and have you tried the egg white mask? Its fantastic for controlling oil and it reduces redness. try it for twice a week first two weeks and then reduce to once a week afterwards.

Hey Tooxie!

 

I cannot stress how important it is not to pick your skin, its probably one of the major causes of your acne. When I reduced my skin picking my skin improved quickly. I know what its like to constantly pick and not notice, you should look into the skin picking forum of this site, in addition you should visit stoppickingonme.com which tells you in lots of detail the damage you're doing to your skin when you pick. But you will NEVER be clear if you don't break this habit trust me!

 

If you have under the skin pimples along your jawline, sounds like your acne is hormonal and I would suggest the pill, but make sure you look into the side effects. But prioritise the skin picking and i think you'll find the redness will really go down!

 

I also suggest don't expose your skin to UV as skin weaker to such radiation when on minocycline


In Topic: Do Girls Care About Acne? Tips For Guys With Acne

22 January 2013 - 05:03 PM

I know quite a few girls with clear skin going out with guys with visible acne, but they always seem to be a bit older, at school a lot of the girls i.e. the 'popular' ones were shallow with that sort of thing (lol no chip on my shoulder honest)  but I'm guessing media has a greater influence at that stage in life.
Personally acne on a guy has no influence on my opinion of him, in fact I kind of find a few box scars on a guy attractive!

Hey when you have privacy I would suggest dabbing a blob of thick moisturiser like vaseline on it and keep doing so as much as possible e.g. all day and before bed for a week or two and you may find it fades pretty well, well it does for me!
