How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

I have been ok over recent weeks, my acne has died down a lot and some red marks have began to fade.

Still get the odd spot though which is annoying, but i'm slowly getting better. I just need patience.... even more patience

These days I base how I feel about it on how it looks with makeup on, so generally right now, it's a "good week". Without? certainly feel kind of bad. August was my best month this year, I dunno what happened.

^^Summer/August was good for me too :)

Now i'm kinda stressed with finals (thus broke out a bit) and this is my first winter on this new regimen, and I blow my nose a lot now cuz of the cold, so my skin is getting dry. That's my biggest complaint right now.

^ that's great!

Geeking wow I really do believe that alot of it might have to do with stress, etc. definetly emotions atleast.

and for some reason im having a bad day and the next day I wake up feeling great...today i'm listening to music and getting ready to go out and just generally in a good mood. I'm not sure my skin has improved so much, infact it feels worse but my happiness today makes me disregard it completely I suppose!

I feel better today compared to the last few days. I had a really bad breakout and makeup wouldn't even help it out it's horrible. It was so bad on Monday and I saw my bf - he was joking around and he said something about my acne. I just cried and up to now I still couldn't really shake the comment/ "joke" off...

Acne is such a stubborn little SOB! It will start to clear up and your hopes will go up along with it, then bang, another breakout! I hate acne with the burning intensity of 10,000 suns! Grrrr!

Haha, I feel better now :).

Yup stress can be a factor! It's good to take time to relax. De-stress best ya can.

Aaah! Tell me about it, my skin is clearly up a lot but I know once my period comes (next week) it'll break out. The dreaded ups and downs of acne.

Ugh, it really sucks being a woman sometimes doesn't it? I mean men have a much better chance of their hormones eventually leveling out and beating acne once and for all... but our hormones are constantly in a state of chaos lol (periods, bcp, pregnancy, menopause).

Good today. I always feel good about it when i'm not doing anything or seeing anyone.

It's when i have to go out and do something that i feel bad about it.

Horrible. Just horrible. I've been on accutane for two months and it's worse than it started off. I honestly just want to hide. With all this on my face, I don't feel like myself. I don't see who I once was anymore. I feel scarred. I feel the red marks. I feel the active pimples. I just feel disgusting and unapproachable. I'm constantly comparing myself to others. I don't know why. I can never find anyone who looks as bad as I do.

This shit sucks. I can't bring myself to leave my house for days at a time because I have poop on my face. I hate it.

Today was rough. I only had to go out a little over the weekend for a few hours at a time so I got to stay home without makeup and let my skin rest most of the weekend.

Today however, I had to be in the office all day. My skin felt really tight from the Tazorac that I'm using at night despite all of the moisturizer I'm using. One of my friend at the office even told me that she noticed that I wasn't opening my mouth as much when I talked because my face was dry and it hurt.

Everyone at the office has been asking me how I'm doing. They don't know that all I'm thinking about is how bad my face feel but they do notice that I'm not myself since this latest breakout started about 4 weeks ago. The sad part is that I got married just over a month ago (right before the nasty new breakout) so they all think that I'm not happy with my husband. I can't correct them and tell them that it is actually my acne that is making me depressed...then they will look at my face even more.

I came home early, washed my face and applied my Taz and plenty of moisturizer. I've been drinking more water today and plan to get a good night sleep so that my face feels better tommorrow.

Pretty good. Dan's AHA+ seems to be working, as well as the increased amount of Vitamin A that I've introduced into my list of supplements. 10,000 IU of D3 seems to be helping with my overall mood, as well.
