You Know You're on the Regimen/Suffer From Acne When....

Recommended Posts

61. Your hair style changes depending on which part of your face you are trying to hide that week/day

62. The first thing you notice about any other human you come in contact with is their skin ( and guiltily feel happuier when its not perfect either!)

63. You are cautiously happy/depressed/suicidal depending on how many new spots you developed that morning

You know you have acne when...

1) You quietly fume when someone else moans about their ONE spot.

2) You flip over the pillowcase mid week to get the 'clean' side.

3) You turn off your bedroom light when you have to answer the door to a flatmate, so they don't see the full extent of your acne.

4) You kind of wish your friends would have a bad breakout to make your acne look less severe.

5) You attempt to stick to the 5 a day fruit and veg guideline and drink at least 2 litres of water a day.

6) You feel like everyone is thinking and staring at your acne, rather than at YOU when they are talking to you.

4. When you walk with someone you always take the side you feel better. Even if that makes you look really weird doing it.

Omg painfully true.

When you wake up in the middle of the night n flip yr pillow jst in case.

When you fake toilet breaks to see how good/bad yr skin looks.

When you see peoples eyes wandering all over yr face when their talking to you n you cringe n think jeez wtf is the point btw seriously.

when you've prayed and begged god to clear your acne and sworn to believe in him if he does

when you've insulted and challenged the devil to make him appear so you can make a deal with him about your acne

when you try to calculate probability about acne, you've done your own research and come up with statistics about acne (i'm probably alone on this one)

when you have seriously considered throwing up after you ate a lot of food that gives you acne

when you feel for people with celiac disease and diabetes because you've experienced some of what they're going through

when have some drink you like that you haven't had in a while and all of the sudden it's too sugary

when you wake up from a nightmare and wish you were back because you had clear skin in your nightmare

(male) when people notice you're trying to hide what you're looking at on the computer and think it's porn. They catch you looking at something about acne and you wish it had been porn

OMG I can relate to about 95% of these things! This made me laugh which then in turn made me wanna cry! Oh I love that I'm not the only one. I wish I had friends in real life who were in the same boat as me and we could talk about stuff like this! At least we have each other right! :)

You check yourself out in all the mirrors in your house before you go out and the mirror you look best in, you stare at for a while, until you get enough courage to go out.

When you like it best to look in mirrors that have really dim lighting.

HAHA! Five and fifty-eight are completely me! I feel bad for my boyfriend, because he tries to be romantic and give me movie-scene-esque kisses, and I almost rip his arm off. He has acne too though, so maybe I should worry so much? :D

I LOVE THIS THREAD!

-When you meet an old acquaintance you have not seen for a while, and you quickly fabricate an excuse story to explain how you came into possession of 'that red mark on your cheek'. Just to overcome the awkwardness that may prevail throughout the duration of which your in their company.

-Walking as confidently as possible through town, not making eye contact with anyone, looking directly ahead and attempting to pretend that it's a dream, in which no one else exists. Subconsciously assuring yourself that 'you shall be safe at home in front of your computer soon'.

-Heading directly to the nearest toilet to apply that extra bit of makeup which might have eroded away from the wind. And simultaneously remaining there for a good five minutes performing some breathing techniques to help aid your flush/Rosacea emphasized from the poor environmental conditions.

-Having an adequate knowledge of what a 'pea sized amount' is, after months/years of utilizing Benzoyl Peroxide.

-Purposefully opting for another route to your class room, because you can vaguely see/hear some old friends you haven't seen since school, to avoid being seen or merely detected.

-Getting through the day contented and happy, not focusing on your skin, only to quickly feel repugnant and destroyed after hearing one silently mutter something along the lines of 'look at their acne' or one looking at your skin, and then looking away smiling/giggling to themselves.

-When you misapprehend someone's blatantly pure sense of sarcasm, by saying 'you've got a spot', and you provide them with a verbal attack equivalent to world war two.

-When some cocky chav says 'are you wearing makeup?' or 'you missed a spot'.

-When Lindsay Lohan appears on television advertising some shitty product that failed you years before apprehending everything about acne, when you were a n00b. You silently laugh to yourself about how much self gratification you'd receive from eradicating her with fire.

-When a friend comes around and you tell them your just about to get in the bath or your ill, when realistically your about to spend the next 3 hours obsessing over your skin.

-When you hog the bathroom to pop a zit, and someone requests to come in from desperation of requiring the toilet. You tell them you have diarrhea, they're selfish, and they should go outside.

You know you have/have had acne when you are in your teens and know everything there is to know about: the meat/dairy controversy, omega 3 fatty acids, acid vs. alkaline body state, zinc supplements, apple cider vinegar, colon cleansing products, and have a nicer body than anyone you know as a result of a ridiculous self-care regimen. Also, when people ask you about why you are so knowledgeable/obsessed with nutrition and fitness, you make up excuses that have nothing to do with your acne.

OH MY GOD THIS!!!! I was on the phone with this girl I like and we were talking about food and stuff and I told her I don't eat chocolate, soda, candy, fast food, and I'd been doing it for about 6 months. She was like amazed and thinks I'm one of those crazy hippie health-nut people :P.... which I guess I am.

When you accidentally touch your face somehow... with your "dirty hands" and you know you cant do anything about it cause you're at work/school all day... So you are a grump the whole day until you can get home and tend to your face.... It's like you could feel the zit forming all day lol...

This thread is amazing! It feels so good to laugh at yourself!

I have some more to add =p

-- Whenever someone yells nose-goes you purposely loose

-- When someone mentions something about a mirror you go into a bad mood

-- You see satan standing near every water foutain just waiting to splash your face and laugh at you.

-- You avoid your friends in the morning before school hoping your acne is better by then

-- You make friends with the person with the worst acne in your class

-- off the top of your head you could probably tell someone the condition of everyone elses acne in the class

that's all I've got =p

Though i have a story =D

During lunch my friends starting a game where you try and touch each others face. Whoever is the last to get touched wins lol I got chased like every day and frequently was spazzing out and falling over =p good thing i'm fast because I play soccer. Long story short, I won. Everytime.

Your mom points out your smeared tinted lipgloss. Little does she know it's an oozing pimple on your lipline.

You're running track and attempt to wipe the sweat from your eyes, only to blind yourself with melting BP!

You're naturally a brunette and you don't use dye to get those blonde hilights. (BP *ahem*)

Spending quality time alone means an hour in front of the mirrow in the bathroom. UGH!

I think its time this thread got a resurrection because its made me laugh so much!

Sooooo, to get the ball rolling... :)

You know you've got acne,

1) When people mistake you for a pubescent thirteen year old.

2) When you can play dot to dot with your face and draw a decent picture.

3) When you still remember to take off your makeup after a night out, despite being blindingly drunk.

4) When your first commandment changes from 'Do not murder' into 'Do not touch your face'

1) You go into the bathroom with both arms full of bottles, get inside, close the door and then have to go back for something else

2) Your family make continuous jokes about "I guess I'd better brush my teeth now before Stephanie goes in there or I'll have to queue for half an hour..."

3) You spend at least half an hour in the bathroom when you're doing your face

4) Even if you just need to pee you still spend 5 minutes in the bathroom looking at your face in the three different bathroom mirrors

5) You like winter because there's more darkness and it's ok to wear a scarf.

6) You put makeup on with your curtains closed so that you can only just see yourself in the mirror but not what your skin looks like.

7) You go on here at least twice a day and have to read EVERY new post since the last time you were on in case someone has discovered The Cure while you were away
