The Regimen And The Gym?

07 April 2013 - 11:24 PM

Hey ladies, random question for yall.


I'm having a little trouble fitting the regimen in with my gym routine.  I usually go first thing in the morning, so on those days I just roll out of bed, go workout, then wash my face in the shower. 


However, there are some days were I can't make it that early and have to go at the end of the day.  My question is, how do you guys deal with the makeup situation?  I want to avoid washing my face more than twice a day , but I also don't want to workout without removing the makeup to avoid mixing it with sweat and getting a lovely cement in my pores.


I thought about using jojoba oil to remove it?  Are there any makeup removal wipes out there anyone can recommend? 


Thanks guys!

Acne And Depression

27 March 2013 - 02:01 AM

I've had acne since I was twelve years old, and next month I will be turning twenty-five.  After thirteen years of breakouts, my skin is a disaster, and I am terrified of what I'll look like when I get older.  My acne has never gotten any better as I got older, despite countless trips to the dermatologist in high school and trying every possible treatment under the sun.  I now have health insurance that won't cover any sort of dermatologic intervention, so even if there was a solution, I wouldn't be able to afford it. 


I am so depressed that I try to avoid looking in mirrors.  I have terrible eye contact because I don't want people looking at my face.  Maybe if it wasn't for my acne I wouldn't be so ugly, but as it stands I am really, really unattractive.  It feels very shameful, both to have spent the majority of my life covered in zits and to be so upset about it.  It feels like I'm being stupid and vain. 


People are clearly turned off by my acne.  I've overheard people say that I might be pretty if it "wasn't for [my] skin." 


I hate my face, and I hate myself for letting it get to me so much.


Does anyone else out there relate to this?  It feels like I'm all alone.  All my friends' acne cleared up five years ago...
