Acne After 30

Rough Day



Having a bad day.   Feeling awfully alone.   Cancelled plans because of my skin and now feeling miserable.  I picked at a cystic spot on my chin and now there is a scab.  My skin is also generally dry, flaky and red today.  Wish I didn't have to spend so much time worrying about my face.  


I know it's easier said than done but you are not alone...there are millions of us feeling the same way and the beauty of this site is that you can be honest about the smallest things and people understand, reading other peoples stories help and there is a great support feeling.
I have many a time cancelled plans because of my skin ( i also have cystic acne) and totally understand, I hope that your mood picks up soon plus as you now have a scab have you tried putting pure coconut oil on the scab? I always find that it helps heal the scab quicker?

You are not alone at all! Please hang in there and fight your acne since there are many good ways to get rid of it!
Since you have cystic spots that seem to dictate how you spend your days then you should see a dermatologist ASAP for prescription regimen +/- OTC acne products. 
I wish you all the best and let's keep fighting acne together!

Thanks so much - it means a lot to hear from others that have been where I am!  I haven't tried coconut oil (though I have some).  Will give it a shot!
