In Topic: 100% Clear! Don't Want Acne To Return.. (College)

It would help if you said what you're using now that's working for you.

 

Personally I wouldn't even live there, it sounds like you won't get any privacy. But don't be embarrassed of what products you use. Just do what you do and if they ask about it then explain to them why you have to use it and they'll understand.


In Topic: When Does Teenage Acne Stop/start Fading?

Yesterday, 11:57 PM

Teenage acne ends immediately the second you turn 20. But for an actual answer, it could be any time from 20's-60's. It depends on the severity and what is causing it. For most people who don't have very bad acne, it should clear up in their 20's.

If you're talking about over the counter products, all you can really get are washes, blotting paper and mattifying gel etc. Stuff that temporarily removes or covers up the oil.

 

If you want to actually prevent it you'll have to use something internal such as birth control or spironolactone.


In Topic: Permanent Chest Pimples?

Thanks Jessica. I only got around to doing the peel about 6 times in the last few months. The scars are still there, but I think they are better. This stuff definitely doesn't remove them overnight, but idk what else to try.

 

Don't worry, I'll be fine. I know what I'm doing. But like I said, if anyone out there is reading this, please don't start out with a few hours for your first time. Start with a few minutes. I think the peel I bought is way weaker than it claims to be, which is why I have to leave it on for so long for it to do anything. And be extra careful if you're using it on your face. I'm just using it on my chest so it doesn't matter if my skin under my shirt is really red for a few days, but you don't want that on your face.


In Topic: Acne Is Ugly

26 August 2014 - 02:47 PM

In general, I agree -- I think it's safe to say that acne and its related issues are unattractive, and therefore those afflicted are, at least, less attractive than they'd be otherwise.  Moreover, I believe many people are too quick to label others as "shallow" for simply acknowledging (in one way or another) the fact that acne is unappealing.  It's both, in my opinion, unrealistic and unreasonable to expect people to look past obvious flaws, no matter how superficial you deem them to be.

 

Exactly this, couldn't have said it better myself. Acne itself is unattractive and it does worsen your appearance, although it doesn't necessarily make one "ugly". And it's not fair to call others shallow just because they admit the truth, that acne is unattractive.
