Just When I Think It's Looking Better...

the stormclouds come and my face gets worse! I need to change my thinking to be more positive. I am tired of creating my own hell--obsess, pick, obsess... The fact that I am on medications is no longer a solace--I am getting impatient but want to stick it out at all costs. I just wish i knew WHICH medication/product would be my magical potion. sick of trial & error...I WANT TO LIVE with zest and confidence...Not hiding behind makeup and hair in my face. Live out in the sunlight--no

Pain, Pain, Go Away...

To others, I am okay. I seem fine. People assume I have my shit together and I am content. Personally, I am sad and losing hope that my skin will ever turn around...and it's a really shitty feeling. My SKIN. MY FACE. Why is this SO important to me to the extent that I would RATHER sit inside all day and sleep as much as possible. Avoiding my friends and family. Passing on picnics and parties. Avoiding daylight at all costs. Lying to my children to cover up why I dont want to go o

Microdermabrasion Hell

Hello everyone! It finally happened... I finally got the skin I *used* to shudder at the thought of---the kind of skin that made me thank my lucky stars that MY acne wasn't THAT BAD. . Yep...my entire face erupted in cystic acne and it is all thanks to microdermabrasion. UGH! It all began in June when I foolishly sought laser resurfacing to get rid of all the post acne markings on my face. No--it didn't magically peel away my skin to reveal clear baby-like skin (like it was marketed

Organic Coconut & Castor Oil: Saving My Face?

I finally received my Amazon shipment of natural skincare items and decided to put the oils to the test. Background info: I (stupidly) resorted to laser treatment for surface imperfections and it made everything worse + broke me out like CRAZY! I haven't broken out this bad since I tried that evil Murad acne system almost ten years ago! Anyways, it's been a depressing few weeks as I watch my complexion get worse everyday. I decided to clear it naturally, after the OTC acne products aggrava

A New Rabbit Hole...

I can't believe I have been so foolish--of course my skin is not well--I have abused it with so many chemicals and made-made technologies. My skin is as bad as its ever been because I have been soley relying on creams, cleansers and finally a laser--which ravaged and damaged my complextion. I've been lazyy--desperate enough to look to the skin care industry to fix my face and hasty enough to buy into whatever they advertised as " breakthroughs". They were all empty promises driven by money. I

How Did I Get Here?

Hello universe I don't know how the heck to post topics or posts so I'll just lump it all here: I have been thinking about my unhappiness about my skin and how many oppertunities I passed up because I was so self conscious of my complextion. When I think about that unlived life, I feel this awful pang of regret. I will be honest: my skin sucks, but I am more than my skin and the people who love and care about me didn't place any emphasis on my skin when they were deciding to love and ca

Hope

I am sitting here way too late into the night pouring over the same site I have come to years and years before. Just worried, and hopeless, and WISHFUL I could find a cure to this ailment that forces me into hiding from my own life--my marred complextion. It's sad how much time I have wasted being so dissatisfied with my skin and therfore unbelievably unhappy as a result.(not to mention the wasted money and agony!) My skin only got this bad by trying "treatments" that inevitably made my ski
