Just wanted to post to say that having acne sucks. My friends are going on a big night out tonight, theme is black dresses so they're all getting dressed up & pretty and I have had to make up some excuse not to go because my skin is not looking so great at the minute and I just cant face the

a) trying to cover it up with make up & worrying that all the make up is going to make my skin worse

b) worrying all night that everyone can see that I have too much make up on and also still notice my bad skin

c) having to deal with the fact that all my friends have great skin, the type where they dont even wear foundation

d) my skin looking worse in the morning

so I am staying in on my own tonight, feeling sorry for myself and wishing that I had good skin and also that this didn't affect my life so so much.

I know I should go out & not care about how my skin is but I just cant. I hate the fact that this affects my life so much, stops me going out and seeing my friends.... meh.

Acne sucks big time,, :(

This has happened to me many times too and I hated listening to what fun my mates had when i wasn't out with them.

Im supposed to be going out 2nite and im really nervous as i havent even spoken to a woman for weeks never mind socialised.

But ive just had a shave and look spot free and my scars look a bit better since shaving.

Good job it gets dark early :) (hides it perfect)

hope you dont feel too down about it,, hug

Thanks guys, it really does help to know there are people who know how it feels and the extreme lengths you end up going to.

Hope you have a good night tonight rian202003 :D

i know this must be hard, but think of it this way.... regardless of what people may or may not think (you'd be suprised how preocupied peoples' minds are) ithat the likelyhood of DOING anything is minimal. most people wont make rude comments or antyhing else just because someone has acne... dont let this fear keep you from enjoying yourself. for the last two years i've had it realllly bad, and you know what? not a SINGLE comment from anyone but my mom. people can be mature.... not always, but more often than you think

i've stayed in many times, but only when the thing i'm missing out on is something i don't care much for. i stay in hoping that an extra day or two at home, away from the sun, junk food, stress, and with my medication/treatments, and a lot of sleep, will make a significant improvement. the more time that i can keep people from seeing my acne, and allowing it to heal at home, the happier i'll be when i look better. and there are times where i really do look a lot better.

Oh god, I've done that so many times. I've missed school, fun, and everything else because I didn't think my skin looked decent enough to be seen in public.

But I'll tell you what:

All the times I made the best of my face (i.e: at least two hours of meticulous corrective makeup) and went out anyway, I had fun and I was glad I didn't stay home and hide.

Just smile and let your personality shine through when you don't look your best. Be funny, charming, and try to stay in flattering lighting and no one will even notice your breakouts.
