Feeling hopeless



I had to quit the regimen because it ruined my skin my overdrying it. It's been three weeks. My forehead and nose now are covered with tens of whiteheads. I don't know what to do anymore. It seems that no matter what I do, how careful I am with my diet and skincare ritual, pimples keep popping up. I'm so tired. Mom asked me why I wouldn't go shopping or hang out with friends. I'm 21 and I'm still in college. I stay at home whenever I'm off school or work. I never go out. I'm afraid any dirt/heat would make my acne worse. The truth is, it gets worse no matter what. I just can't face myself anymore. 
I just washed my face. I looked into the mirror and got totally frustrated and depressed. I went to the farmer's market with my mom today. Everyone I saw there had clear skin. I just wanted to hide. 
I've complained a lot on this site I know. There's nowhere else for me to talk about my feelings. Acne is an unspeakable disease and it literally kills people slowly from inside out. "You'll grow out of it." Says everyone. No. I'm stuck with it thanks to my genetics. Nothing I can do will ever give me a good-loping face.
