well, I'm heading to the beach tomorrow, but I'm not excited at all.

why? because even though I have no pimples I have red discolorations

all over my face. when I wear makeup you would never be able to tell

there is anything wrong with me, but I don't care about that. I want to

do the things other people do. I want to be beautiful without makeup. I

want to actually be able to swim, not sit on the sand and wish I could.

it makes me so sad, so miserable. I don't even really know what to do right

now. I haven't been this down about my skin in a long, long time. I feel

like giving up, I mean, I have tried everything. I have had isolaz, chemical

peels, retin a, coconut oil, multiple face masks... everything. I mean some

of the red marks on my face I have had for two years!

I feel you 100% percent. I have been on accutane for 4 months now and I have 0 pimples and cyst. I feel great but I have a lot of red spots around my jawline area and it looks like I have acne when I really don't. I haven't tried doing anything for it, I am going to wait until accutane is over.

Look at it this way, at least you can wear make up to cover it up. Well I can too but it is a little different for a guy. I wish I could recommend something for the red marks but know that you are not alone. Best of luck. ;)

Does anyone notice that you have red marks without makeup?

You are going to be around friends at the beach. They're not going to point out insecurities and make you feel uncomfortable.

Im guessing the problem isnt going to be with his friends, but more the fact that the beach will be packed with people and half of them will be young and half naked.

Same with anywhere though, its easy going round to a mates house to chill but when you go somewhere public and busy its a whole different ball game

yeah, well im at the beach right now.

and the first time I went to the beach I lasted awhile and felt confident

but the second time I lasted about 30 minutes then ran back to the hotel.

oh well, baby steps I guess?
