In Topic: At What Age Range Is Having Acne The Worst?

15 June 2013 - 01:00 PM

 

 

I started getting major acne in 4th grade...... That was hell on earth lol

 

And when I say major, I mean MAJOR, it sucked

How old were you then? 9? 

Yeah, I was about 9 or 10. Apparently, my doctor thought that I was too young to use facial cleansers and stuff, so I used soap and water, but it just dried my skin and made everything worse, so I was stuck with it. And then, in 5th grade, I started using Proactiv, which made everything even more worse. My doctor says that that the acne may have been caused by stress, because I was always a little stressed from schoolwork and social stuff and bullying (because of my acne and being a 'nerd'.... it was a vicious cycle lol)

Oh dear,proactiv at 10? omg...Maybe you hit puberty too early?

That's what I thought at first, but nothing else started developing yet, all I had was the acne

In Topic: Being Dependant On A Routine/products And How It Affects You

11 June 2013 - 09:54 PM

I'm really lenient about my routine, mostly because I'm really indecisive about what facial products I use. I tend to switch facial cleansers and routines A LOT, I actually don't know why. I've switched so many times I can't even count. I remember when I use to be really particular about that sort of thing, but my acne has improved so much that I stopped caring as much. I still care a lot though, because I'm still living with the lifelong fear that my acne will be as bad as it was in 4th grade. If I'm at a friend's house and I spent a day without washing my face, I'm okay with that, but then I spend the whole day worrying about how my face looks. Does that make sense lol?
