In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Yesterday, 08:43 PM

Not feeling good today. Picked after 11 days of not picking. I'm mad at myself for picking, but at the same time it feels like a relief to have all that junk out of my pores. I really wish they would stop filling up. They're starting to scar :(


In Topic: Belara Log

Yesterday, 01:30 PM

I'm glad to have so many people interested in my progress :)

 

Tonight will be my 6th night taking Belara and I haven't noticed any significant differences yet. My skin and hair do seem a little less oily, but my skin is still as clogged as ever. It's actually more clogged than before I took accutane the first time. I hope the clogs will start improving soon.


In Topic: Acne Is Directly Related To Orgasm Frequency. . .

I see lots of guys talking about this, and I don't doubt that for some masturbation and orgasm could make acne worse, but I always wonder how you guys think abstaining from it in the long run is really reasonable. What happens when you have girlfriends or wives?


In Topic: Aloe Vera Drink For Topical Use?

The ingredients look fine. In my experience, though, aloe vera (even fresh from the plant) never did much for my skin.


In Topic: Skin Picking

Yes, I do, but I have gotten much better at this lately. Some things I do that help:

 

-Don't look in the mirror, and if you have to, try to look in the mirror in dim lighting and with makeup or powder on.

-Don't touch your face. When you wash your face, only let a wash cloth touch it.

-Get some Nexcare acne patches and put them on big pimples that are ready to pop.

-Paint your nails or cut them really short. I actually have fake nails on right now which is helping me not pick.

-When you feel like picking, try to do something else like some stretches or something. 

-Tell yourself that your skin does not deserve to be picked at. Your skin deserves to be treated gently.

-Try to do something else with your hands or wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it when you feel like picking.

-Read books and forums about stopping picking.

-Keep a journal or log of your progress. Making a log on here is a great idea, because it can make you feel accountable.
