In Topic: Anyone Else Sick Of Acne Destroying Their Life?

Man, I feel the exact same way as you do. Literally everything you mentioned is something I have felt or had to deal with. Its the most discouraging thing ever. It's not fair that we feel restricted to do so many things, or act in public like the person we truly are. I can honestly admit that my social life/social skills have definitely taken a hit because of acne, which really sucks. For me, things might slowly get better, and I start to feel that confidence that I know I should have. Then I'll breakout, and go back to feeling crappy and depressed. It's that cycle of up and down that is the worse for me. And its not like getting rid of acne or scars is an easy process too. It's incredibly time consuming, and the days I spend inside for my face to heal are essentially getting wasted. I'm especially feeling crappy right now even, but I think what you have to do is look at your acne in a different perspective. For example, knowing that there a still people who have it worse than you do, or even have other problems that you don't seem to have. A lot of people may seem perfect on the surface, but deal with a lot of things that we don't really see. I'm fortunate for many things I do have in my life, besides acne, which I really try to take more for granted. I kind of use these things to look past this curse of acne I have and try to feel better about myself.

Unless you still have active spots, there really is no point to continue using differin on your skin. I found that it just kept my skin super dry and red, until i finally stopped using it. You shouldn't break out either if you do

Red marks mostly go away with time, but there are methods that people use to try and speed up the process. For example, exfoliating, puting aloe vera / lemon juice on your marks, etc

Hard to tell by the picture but I would say light to moderate. It doesn't look like you even have an active spots, just hyper-pigmentation.

In Topic: Why Do I Only Have Whiteheads?

I'm pretty much the exact same, my acne alwayys turns to white heads. Small, big, anything. Even some really painful spots will. I wish I knew why as well.
