I've been using the UK forum for a few months now, but I don't know too much about everyone else who use it too. In the interests of being neighbourly and friendly (and the fact that it's a slooooooow Sunday afternoon) I thought I would ask about everyone using the UK forum. So here's some information about me, let's get to know each other better.

Age: 26

Time with acne: About 12 years

Best thing you've found for acne: Omega 3

Location: Durham

Job/studying: Work in Science Communication, after spending too much time at University! Studying part-time too: am a sucker for learning!

Hobbies: Photography, graphic design, too much time on Acne.org, too much time email people, swimming, walking, messing about with the dog, spending time with friends.

One word to describe you (and it can't be spotty, acne prone, shiny or the like: Contemplative

Random piece of information that no one on acne.org would know about you: Despite being a born and bred Geordie, I have the strongest Scottish accent you've ever heard. But you sorta don't pick that up from my typing ;)

So, who are you?!

That's a handy trait! I find that really strange! At least if you had an arm amputated, you'd be able to write................... :shifty:

I know this will make me sound really old, but what's critical thinking? Sounds like you've had part of your brain removed so you don't have to deal with frivolous things, like making sure you have clean socks for the next day!

if u have any questions id be glad to help as im one of the few uk mods

(pm me tho because i dont always check forum constantly like)

anyways im 21 from London

i work for a bluechip company in their headoffice as a distribution planner.

im clear of acne really now apart from occasional pimple (i grew out of it)

but when i suffered i used the DKR as i found it did control my acne but didnt resolve it for me totally unfortunately as i had sensitive skin so it caused my face to be very irritated.

but out of everything i tried, i found the DKR to work best (the dip regimen is pretty good too tho)

anyways theres my info i guess (bit vague i know)

hehe

much love to the UK boys an girls!
