How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm back from my mini acne.org 'hiatus'

To be honest, it didn't go exactly as planned. The idea was that I would stop focusing on my acne completely and stop researching things to do with it. Not being active in the forums helped a little but didn't stop me from heading to google and searching stuff. I did take a step back though and didn't focus on it all as much as I had been but I didn't stop completely - I guess I'd become so used to it - it's not like a switch I can just flip to 'off' and no longer focus or worry about my skin...

There was one day when I got really motivated to forget about my acne and agreed to trial some new skin care products for a company haha so I'll see how that goes... (only for a few days, so I don't mind).

Anyway, I was happy to find that over the last few days I've felt a lot better about myself :) My skin has improved a little - probably due to me using a BP cleanser twice a day every day (and not alternating between the BP one and a 'plain' cleanser). I've been able to look in the mirror and smile or notice things about me that I like. Maybe it's just another phase of luck - where I just happen to be feeling good - and actually it probably won't last if my skin worsens again - but for now, I'm enjoying it. :)

I also had my last uni exam for the semester so I can now relax a bit and de-stress now and hopefully that will help things too. But because I'll have more free time for the next few weeks, I'm really going to try to focus less on my acne and try and keep up this 'happy phase' I'm having :P

As for starting the acne.org regimen - I think I probably will. Though I do want to check out what Azelaic acid is first (from what I can remember hearing, it could help the BP penetrate the skin better? anyone know?) and see if I could combine it with the BP face wash I'm using - seeing as that seems to be helping a fair bit lately. (I know - I can practically hear you yelling at me- 'JUST START THE REGIMEN ALREADY!' :P )

Here's a picture of me with my new love if you're interested, lol

http://25.media.tumb...oqnpoo1_500.jpg

Seriously considering saving up my money and getting me one of these babies before too long here... especially considering the bastard government might make them illegal at some point. Jeez, people change so much. I used to be this peaceful little hippie who was against hunting and guns and all of that. I'm like the total opposite now and I'm LOVING the way it makes me feel. I've been through a lot of shit and I'm a hell of a lot tougher for it!

Oh dear oh dear oh dear. How could you get one of those after what's happened in your schools over there I don't know.

Why on Earth should I not have a gun because some psycho people have used them to kill? If anything, psychos existing in the world is MORE of a reason to have a gun, no? I never understand when people make this argument. Do you think that guns are robots that walk around by themselves and kill people? No. It takes a person USING the gun to kill people. I am a responsible adult and I'm not planning on murdering any innocent people, so why shouldn't I have a gun if I want one and enjoy shooting them?

Having and not having a gun? Well,i don't know that.But in the pic you sure look like an intimidating girl! I'd never want to mess with you ,god knows when you pull that trigger lol :P

Well, my skin is taking a turn for the worse. Usually my breakouts subside and I go through a clear stage, but my face is going into acne-overdrive right now.

It's probably down to my diet/lifestyle, I like to drink, some would consider it a lot. But where I live, at 20 years old, going out to clubs/bars and getting drunk is what people do to socialise. Why should I stop and my clear friends have all the fun? Why is my lifestyle affecting me and not them? I know, I know, they're 'acne-prone'. Why am I acne-prone? What makes my otherwise healthy looking skin spurt out ugly whiteheads that pop, dry up and leave ugly looking red scabs on my face? I need an answer. I find it difficult to look people in the eye these days. Because I know that they're judging me.

The Regimen it is. Again. I didn't want to have to go down that route again, but what can I do? I want to be free of acne forever. I want to be able to get drunk, eat burgers and feel free to do what I want. I don't want to tip-toe around my acne, trying to change every aspect of my life in order to get rid of it. Why should I? I mean, everyone dreams of eating raw vegetables and taking 5000 supplements a day, right? Whilst clear-skinned people can just get on with their lives...

I apologise if this is a little over-dramatic. I'm hungover and I get emotional. ;)

I know buddy...it's painful.It's even more painful when you get cysts instead of whiteheads.I mean i love whiteheads,at least they are small and easy to treat.We'll steer clear through our ordeal .Don't bother smile.png

I have one small breakout today that I knew was coming. Once in a while I get these pore plugs that last for ages...when they eventually come out (it did yesterday) I always get a little red infection in that spot the next day... I think it's because my immune system is dealing with the last of the plug and cleaning out any bacteria that may have been stuck down there. It isn't a cystic acne or anything just a red and inflamed pore.

I can't figure out what causes those pore plugs. I used to have tons of them but since the regimen I have very few left now and they seem to be popping out when they are ready. It's gross, but kind of neat seeing your immune system in action like that! Hopefully one day I won't have any plugged pores at all. I think the AHA lotion helps with that too.

I'm feeling sad that I can't enjoy summer weather because my face turns into sebum factory and I'm really self conscious about it especially as it displaces my makeup. The oil just pours out of it all day long even though I'm on Accutane! I've been on it less than a week so maybe it takes longer but I was under the impression I would start drying out straight away. 'm a bit disappointed... My lips are red and a bit sore (but not cracked, I'm vigilant about moisturising them) but if it weren't for that I wouldn't know I was taking it! Which is a good thing I guess... No mood changes, no joint or muscle pains (despite exercising every day including 3 hour mountain bike ride and a three hour run) no hair loss no initial breakout. Maybe all that is still to come... I'm on 30 mg/kg. Apparently the normal starting dose is 1/2 mg/kg and I weight 55 kg so it's not a small dose...

My dermatologist wrote to my other Drs saying I had severe scarring acne and was undoubtedly a candidate for Roaccutane. It was kinda hard seeing it written down like that. I know people thought from my photo that I was upset about nothing and didn't have acne at all but that just shows what makeup can do. My acne doesn't show up in any photographs, I hope my skin looks like that in real life but I'm sure it doesn't - I can see that in the mirror.

Something that is really bothering me about Accutane is not being able to drink! It's silly because I don't usually drink often or very much and am with people who wouldn't care if I didn't but recently I have been going out alot and dating a few men and it's really hard saying I don't drink and not being able to give an honest answer as to why. I don't want to draw attention to my acne when I can hide it reasonably well. I don't want them to know I have such bad genes my acne requires accutane! I don't like to show my weaknesses until I've got to know someone a bit better. I'm also really worried about having an initial breakout - the marks last so long and raised acne is so hard to cover. So far so good but apparently week four is worst for that. Dry lips too, very unnatractive. This is kinda bad timing but really the sooner I do this the better...

I know how you feel... it's so unfair. I think is a really good thing that you don't let it stop you going out though. And I doubt actually that your lifestyle contributes to your acne. I haven't heard anything compelling that alcohol makes it worse.

I think the AHA does help too so I really hope it works for you! I think salycilic acid which I think is a bha may be even better but I'm not sure. I know Dan said there was conflicting info about whether you should use salycylic acid with bp, but the aha cream that I could get over the counter in the UK also contained some salicylic acid and I didn't have a bad reaction to it.

No more Accutane for me lol. Don't know if i'm being paranoid, but in the shower i lose hair. Maybe because i'm paying attention now and not before, but it's getting to me bad.

That's a really rotten choice to have to make, I'm so sorry. One day they've got to find a better drug than this but it doesn't help us...

Yeah I get these too...they just sit there for a while and then randomly get inflamed. My immune system doesn't usually get the chance because I pick, but when I'm trying not to they usually do exactly the same thing. Think mine has something to do with sitting in the sun because they always come up within the first few days of being on holiday - although it could just be when I get really hot/ sweaty because I have one now after exercising last night. Think the universe is having a laugh, I do some exercise and get punished with a breakout!

So a few weeks ago I got what looked like a cyst on my thigh. I've never had a pimple or anything anywhere other than my face and a bit on my chest. It slowly turned purple and went down, though the mark is still there. Then I got another one in my pubic area, which has now gone down as well. Another, similar looking thing showed up under my arm, though I thought it was a bug bite or something as it looked a bit different. I showed my dad and he said it's an ingrown hair, so I don't know if they all are, or just that one was. Regardless, I've never had anything like this before so I'm extremely confused. Now here's the worst part: it has spread to my face. I got one above my lip, that I squeezed the shit out of until it swelled up and eventually oozed some yellowy fluid, then scabbed over. The scab's now gone and it's started to go down a little bit, but it still looks huge. And just now I've woken up with one twice as big as the others, way under the skin, on my chin. I NEVER get pimples on my chin or jawline.

I need to figure out what's causing this. I started taking Vitamin C powder once a day, around the same time the first one of these showed up. I just can't remember if it was before or after, though I'm pretty sure it was after, so I don't see how it would be causing them. Also, the rest of my skin has been looking great since starting the Vitamin C so I don't know if I should quit. Other than that I haven't changed anything... I've been masturbating more, maybe. But every 2 weeks my girlfriend visits and I have a lot of sex and that never caused anything anyway.

Yeah, I can't think of anything that could be causing it. Any ideas?

A tad better. The lower part of my face isn't as terrible as it was. I'm still in two minds about starting the regimen again. I made a thread about it in the regimen forum, but nobody posted. :(

I got some jojoba oil in the post today, so I'm going to give that a try in my moisturiser or maybe even use it as a cleanser.

I just don't feel myself lately or like it's impossible for me to even try and be myself because I'm too conscious of my skin.

I definitely wouldn't think it would be an ingrown hair. There wouldn't be one after another like that, over and over within the same time span. It could definitely be an allergy to something--what is in the vit C powder? Do they itch?

Hey I like that logic. I thought back and looked at the shipment date and found that the first cyst/ingrown hair on my thigh appeared a week before getting the Vitamin C powder. That one itched a bit and so did the one in my pubic area, but the two on my face have only hurt.

The Vitamin C powder was supposed to be a Now Foods 455 g size container, that promised it was free of gluten, lactose, etc. etc. But instead they shipped me two 227 g bottles, without that promise. It does say 100% pure powder though.

I'm about to go buy some turmeric powder, possibly curcumin itself too if I can find it, and some piperine/black pepper. I was reading through turmeric posts today and saw you had tried it a year ago or so. What were your experiences with it? I plan to just take it internally by the way... miight try a spot on this chin cyst thing.

Today is not a very good day for me. I was supposed to start Accutane today after waiting a month due to the ridiculous ipledge requirements. But, nope, apparently my ipledge registration didn't go through so I have to wait ANOTHER month before I start. censored.gif I wish I didn't live in the US, where I didn't have to deal with such an inconvenience. I keep reading all these logs about people starting accutane, and I was hoping (I was rather excited actually) I was going to be one of them. And now I have to wait longer.

I am just so tired of acne. I feel like I suffered from it long enough. Today, I woke up with 2 new pimples, plus I have a huge one right next to my mouth from a few days ago. So now it hurts to smile (how sad is that?).

Sorry, usually I don't get this upset. I mean I should be happy that Accutane is even an option for me when it's not for some people. I just needed to vent my emotions. Maybe during this month of waiting, I will eat even healthier and exercise more and that will help my skin a bit. Plus, now I don't have to worry about hiding from the sun as much since I am not on Accutane yet.

Still, stupid ipledge! eusa_wall.gif

Sounds kind of what I have: Hidradenitis suppurativa. It's rather rare though, especially for guys. Maybe you should ask a derm to see if you have it. There isn't a really good treatment for it (unless you opt for surgery or lasers that could cause cancer).

I felt like taking massive amounts of turmeric MAY have taken the edge off of my inflammation, but it didn't make that much of a noticeable difference, honestly. But I've never used it topically very much. It's probably good for you, but since the affects aren't noticeable, I don't see the point of going to the trouble of encapsulating them and taking it internally. I do enjoy a good turmeric-rich curry though! :)

Woke up today and my skin looks okay. Kinda shiny from using jojoba oil, but it looks...shiny in a healthy way?

I really like it to exfoliate with. It seems to wipe away dead skin, I love it.

I hope to order some BP this week to try and get myself clear again...

I've seen a few people say that they use jojoba oil to exfoliate... how do you do that? Just rub it on your skin and wash off?

Put some on your hand, rub hands together and then massage it into the skin in a circular motion. Once you've done that, just cleanse as normal. :)
