Introduction Of My Blog

Hi there!

I'm a 17 year old boy and turn 18 in next month. I'm from Denmark in a small town near Copenhagen. It's a town where everybody know me and I know everybody. That's why I hate where I live. Because everybody knows that I have acne and I hate that.

My acne started about when was turning 16. It has been times with both bad and good periods.

I have always been very quiet and shy. But when I was 15, I started to interest in how I was looking. I began to use hair wax and use more time on shopping cloth. Well, normal things for a teenager.

The girls began to notice me and I got the most beautiful girlfriend. I was filled with confidence in that time. I loved to be social, get new friends and being around with my girlfriend. I loved myself and that period in my life.

I won’t forget that period of my life. I was turned from a shy boy to a very open and social boy.

But after some time my girlfriend broke up. It was about that time that I began to get acne. It came like a bomb.

The first days with acne I was filled with small, red spots. And they didn't disappear. It damaged my confidence a lot!

After some time with a mild/moderate acne I met a new girl. She was very supportive about my acne, which gave me a lot of confidence. But right before my 16th birthday, she was cheating on me. It was on the same day I got a bad, bad knee injury at a football match. It took 8 months before I could run again.

My confidence has been low since that. Very low in some periods. I can’t even look people in the eyes when they are talking to me anymore.

My regimen is right now:

DSC cleanser and DSC moisturizer (DSC is a Danish brand) – it’s not that good. But I don’t buy things from USA because I live in Denmark.

Use drops with Vitamin E in my moisturizer when my skin is flaking.

I’m using tea tree oil to my bacne, which helps a lot!

I drink a lot of water and eat fruit every day. Also play a lot of football.

Right now I’m planning to see a doctor to see if I can get some tetracycline. My cousin is taking them right now and is almost cleared up.

My 18th birthday is coming up and I need to get rid of my acne! So I think it will be a great thing to write down what I’m going through right now.

Autumn in 2011 - I think it's the only time after my first acne, where I have cleared up totally: http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/37154_1647864993317_1137715071_31822828_5448168_n.jpg

Hello!

Your Acne story sounds and awful lot like mine. I had a handsome boyfrend when I was 16 and I had the time of my life at that time. Now? Pffft, I have an ugly face and no boyfriend.

I live in the United States, so I can't help you much. I know how you feel. Today I went out with out make up and I felt so disgusting. I couldn't look anyone in the eyes except for the idiot doctor treating my acne.

Tetracycline is great. I was on it about 9 months ago. It will clear your face up a bit. Have you tried purchasing a NON acne cleanser? I noticed that helped me too. Acne cleansers have salilic acid, which dries up your skin while fightig acne. Once you mix it with your other medications, it doesn't really work, causing you more acne. Choose a cleanser for sensitive skin.

I must say though, you have gorgeous eyes! You are a handsome guy, acne is just.... poop. I don't know how else to describe it. Good luck, and I hope my crappy tips help you. :P

Yea, hate my acnce. Almost every friend i have has clear skin! It really sad when they just are starring on my acne. But tetracycline sounds interesting. I was once at a doctor who just gave me a shitty cleanser. I didn't want to do that again, so i haven't been at a doctor since that.

Thanks about my eyes! yours look really pretty as well :)

Haha and i'm very open to tips.. crappy or not!

Its hard to find a good doctor. I have to go to a different country to see the one I actually like :(

Can't you buy cleansers over the counter?

Yeah the doctor I am currently seeing gave a medication (Doxycycline) that made me break out in hives a day after spending the day in the sun. I was so mad and I barely saw him yesterday after avoiding him for two years. I hate him >:(

Try the Tetracycline. Its really good. I'm gonna ask to get back on that one if my Doctor says I can't get Accutane. Accutane is all I want right now :P

It's difficult to find a good cleanser in Denmark.. but I found the british Ebay and ordered Cetaphil cleanser, Oxy on spot 2,5 % BP and a Olay moisturizer. They all got good reviews on this site, so i'm really excited! Also ordered some green tea, which has good reviews as well.

I'm definitely going for the tetracycline, my cousin is so happy about it.

Hope you will get the Accutane. I have a friend who finished his Accutane for about a year ago, he has got maybe a single bump since that.. cleared him totally up :)
