How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

I wish the acne community could live together so that instead of dealing with clear skinned peers who don't understand you and judge you,i'd have to deal with people going through the same tough times as me.Life would be so much easier.Life would be blissful. :) .I can only dream of such life.

I know it sounds like a silly dream but it's a dream nevertheless :P

Feeling like shit today. My chin is a disaster.

Perseverance92, your idea sounds good to me: let's move together into a farm with sheeps and dolfins that will not judge us.

My skin looked really good this morning but I discovered I have this small but really painful zit right next to my nose...I never get zits there so it's pretty weird. But it's uncomfortable and it sucks. I don't really feel like going to work today but maybe by tonight it'll be better.

Blahhhh things like this are just so annoying, but I do feel thankful that the rest of my skin looks good. :) In a couple days this stupid painful thing will be gone I'm sure.

Had a usual breakout today with a few whiteheads. I've taken my new supplements so it's only a matter of time to see if they work.

I was too tired after running to wash my face tonight. I'm sick of having to take so much care of myself with no actual benefits. If my skin looked amazing, I'd wash it without fail, but tonight I've had enough.

I really want to get Dan's AHA, but can't afford it at the moment. :(

Uuuggh okay, vent time. Also, TMI. The zit next to my nose has been SO painful tonight. It hurt to smile, talk, basically do anything with my face at work. I don't know how a zit could be so freaking painful - haven't had one of these in a long time. It doesn't even feel hard like a cyst, just a super painful pimple. Once I got back from work I tried to pop it, and I guess I succeeded, since this tiny string of pus came out? Feels like it should've exploded, but it didn't. Then it started bleeding. Unfortunately I hadn't moisturized before I did this so I accidentally was too rough with the skin and irritated a spot surrounding it too. Now it's like, leaking this weird clear fluid....

Eeerrgh. It's so painful, and annoying. I hope to God that it's flattened or at least a lot less inflamed tomorrow. My skin has really been clearing up and then this stupid thing comes along. I'm so done with acne, done with dealing with it and everything. I can't wait until my derm appt in 2 weeks where I'll hopefully get spironolactone. Who knows, maybe this will be the cure for me.

It'll go away with time...but for right now, this zit sucks, so I'm just going to bed early.

Woke up and one of my whiteheads has turned into a 3-headed beast! Haven't had one of those for a while...yuck.

Really need to find something that works. I'm 20, I just finished college and need to feel like a confident adult...

Yeah I know that feeling well! I definitely feel that acne has stopped me being as confident as I want to be or should be as an adult. Hoping that starting the regimen soon will help me feel more confident as I see results (that's hoping it does work for me). In the mean time though I'll keep working on improving my confidence anyway, despite my acne.

oh!i so understand that that tiny bump or whitehead turning into a big monster overnight!

i dread that.am sure everyone does.

that is one reason i get worried about tiny ones also,for u never know when they come up to u as a big armed enemy!

i am suppose to be going out tomorrow.not for a date or anything.

but there's a chance that i meet(just see that is!) the guy i have a crush on.and i admit i am freaking a lil'.

more so cause its been a few days since i had these small(not tiny) bumps (with and without heads) on my cheek and forehead and also on places i was clear before for sometime.

phew!

i never show sign of frustration and /or lack of confidence or bad mood outside though!

its all in my house!

I just hate that my acne is purely puss-filled whiteheads that can be quite painful...

They're soo ugly too!

If this guy you're crushing on doesn't like you because you have a bit of acne, then he isn't worth it. Plus, I've seen your acne and I don't think it's too bad. But we do see our own flaws much more magnified.

I'm so unconfident it's unreal. Unless I've had alcohol that is!

honestly i feel the same about someone liking me.

i wouldnt go for someone,doesnt matter how big a crush i have or might have on someone , if judges me or ANYONE by his/her looks.

i will know what an idiotic loser he is and that i deserve way better.

i have this thing about being confident as soon as i step outside my house,

its a childhood thing i suppose.

i walk like am a princess .lol!

I feel very down today. It looks like 2 of my acnes will turn into scars + that I read here about people that have bad things to say about derma rolling (something I have recently started to do). Life is very hard at the moment.

Yeah you can't have nights like that if you want the treatments to work. Skipping washing your face one night unfortunately does matter. I did the regimen 6 weeks at least, completely religiously, before I got my amazing skin. It takes a lot of dedication so just commit to taking care of your skin each morning and night. It really only takes a few minutes and can be done even if you're tired.

I'm in the process of moving, so my skin has been freaking out a little bit but not too much. At least now I know the triggers and I'm sure it will calm down again once I am settled into my new place. I'm excited and scared about moving to a new city where I don't really know many people.

Acne isn't my problem it's the scar left from acne that bugs me. I haven't looked in the mirror today. I have the day off so it's been hard...so everytime I feel the urge to look at myself I get on here. lol so far, it's been a good day.

Right now, even those adorable little Labrador pups would be affraid of my chin.

They would see me, then vomit, then feel sick and dizzy, and finally pass out. Poor things.

Know how you feel - I have the same thoughts about the right side of my neck, it is disgusting.

I have had a complete meltdown tonight, I was so repulsed by what I saw in the mirror I spat at my reflection and smashed the mirror.

I think I am losing my fucking mind.

By the way ladies and gents, boys and girls, don`t ever try CBT. It doesn`t work.

I've definitely been there, man. Sorry you're having a rough time right now. I can remember just a few months ago I was standing in front of a mirror just quaking with rage and I wanted to fuckin' slam my fists into the wall, that's how upsetting it can be. I hope that things begin to improve for you soon.

Update for me: Skin is doing really well thanks to The Regimen. Focusing heavily on finding a job right now, heard back from an old job of mine that I'm eligible for rehire so I applied for a few positions on the company website, hope to hear back soon.

Terrible. I haven't been able to afford my cod liver oil and won't be able to so my breakouts are worse than ever. BP and Tazorac do nothing. Plus my ridiculous dermatologist won't let me start Accutane until the end of summer because she doesn't trust that a 25 year old man will stay out of the sun...

At least there is finally a hope in sight though.

Ending my 5th month of accutane 40 mg, still no improvement, it got me flared up on the left chin. Guess I'll just let everything go and accept that nothing can help me , only the time. Have to remain strong and patient.
