I've been suffering from mild to moderate acne for the last 3 years. In the last 2 weeks though my face is at its WORST. My chin is disgusting. It just looks red and gross. I have so many inflamed pimples on it right now. My cheeks have few pimples now, but all the remnants of the past ones still linger. Great way to bring in the new year with my face looking like utter crap :(

I'm just glad its the weekend, so I can stay in so no one has to look at my hideous face. I hope my pimples and redness go down by Monday, even though I'm sure my co-workers are used to seeing the gross acne on my face.

Woke up today like usual. Look like complete crap with the dried BP on my skin as usual, even though I moisturized completely.

God forbid I actually want to do something about my skin. I apologize to my face for only trying to help it. I'm seriously about to take a razorblade and cut open my skin and rip it off. WHY DO I GO THROUGH THIS

Annoyed, really. Every time I get close to being semi-clear now, I break out again. So, yeah. I'm definitely switching my regimen. I can't sit by anymore and pretend this is working for me, then letting my face break completely out again. Oh, and I think what set this over was the conversation with one of my little brothers as I was walking out of the bathroom.

Him (he's 11): What happened to your face? You have so many red dots all over.

Me: I have acne.

Him: That's not acne. (him proceeding to get up and get closer to scrutinize my face) They aren't bumpy. Your bumpy acne is over here.

Me: Yeah, I have acne scars, and redmarks too from having acne.

Him: I'm never getting acne.

Me: That's not something you can control, Trey. Do you think I chose this?

Him: Well no, but I don't want it. It makes your face look ugly.

Me: Thanks for saying that. I'm glad you always point it out when I'm not wearing makeup. I hope you know, you can wish for not having acne all you want. But, it's something genetic we got from mom and dad.

My older sister: Yeah, Trey, mom had really bad skin in high school and college until she started having kids. Dad's face was always clear.

Me: Yeah. (as I leave the room). :|

Awwww, honey :comfort: It reminds me of the little girls who live next door to me. The youngest one is only 4 and during the summer my acne is worse cuz of the heat and sweat and all and this past summer she came over while I was sitting on the porch and asked me what those big red things are all over my face. Yeah, I was so embarrassed.

Kind of depressed. It's not so much the acne, mostly the enlarged pores left over. I hate seeing another girl with beautiful clear skin while I have huge pores all over my face, chest, shoulders and back.

I feel wonderful, fantastic, alive, and feel like I can do anything. Nothing is going to get in my way. Not acne, not people, nothing. I CHOOSE to live life today. I know I am on my way to clear skin. Why? Because I am improving my lifestyle. I am eating more healthy, improving my sleeping habits, exercise regularly, have a positive attitude and am happy for no reason, and get outside as much as possible for fresh air and sunlight.

I am not bragging... I am making a point. Are you really going to let acne control your life? Or, are you going to begin controlling your acne and living your life as you want to live it.

You have a choice... what choice are you going to make today? I hope you choose to be happy. You are a living human being, what else could you ask for?

To Clear Skin,

Todd

I pretty much agree with all of this. Sweet post. Some things aren't in my complete control, but it's pretty much what I aim for.

I'm wearing makeup that hides it.

And I plan on sleeping in my makeup tonight.

I don't even care, because it couldn't get much worse.

feeling horrible about my skin today.

I am starting school on Monday, and I am NOT looking forward to that. I am trying that whole 'do nothing' regime, but there is always new acne every day. There has been this horrible, PAINFUL guy on my eyebrow. MY EYEBROW. the place that I should NEVER get acne/scars. SO embarassing.

between the pores, redness/pinkness and active pimples (ooh, and dark circles!!) i look i did meth or something....and the decision to not groom my face is NOT helping with confidence, either.

growl...

but that felt a little better, to write that :)

Totally empathize with both of you! I hate when relatives randomly show up and I'll have a mask/spot treatment on, and they'll say something like "oh is that food for your acne?" :c

Also, the little kids words, although of course without ill intent, can make you feel bleh. My niece the other day said to me "You're always washing your face and putting stuff on it, but are you ever going to see results?" ;c

I shall never have children. x[

I woke up this morning feeling empowered thinking, "today I will not apply makeup and walk out the door and if people want to judge me then eff them!" Unfortunately as I stared in the mirror and actually did walk out I was plagued with regret! "What the hell was I thinking??" I went home and applied a little bit although it made no difference really. I drank some coffee and now I feel better. Ahh the caffeine rush! I love it! I'm planning to go to the mall later. Hopefully I don't feel plagued with feelings of insecurity again.

Wish me luck guys ;) I need a hardcore confidence boost! Also yeah kids can be mean, but if they really love you they don't judge you based on your acne. I took care of my niece this past week and she didn't even notice them because she loves me. She's only 4 and she didn't point them out! My little sister doesn't care about them either.
