How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

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 :)

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.

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.

So you're saying my family doesn't love me D: The truth is horrible. lol but they're just mean insensitive little ones. I stopped really caring about what other think about my acne a while ago, and just figured eh what's the chances that I'll see someone who I'll know, and if it's someone worth saying hi to, they won't care about the acne :D

Do it! Just don't buy random stuff during the caffeine rush :3

-sigh- i had a big red bump on my chin yesterday, i squeezed it and a small amount of pus came out, but now its kind of scarring and its really red. I should have left it alone :(

Meh, my face is looking a lot better than it has been. I woke up today and was almost shocked when I looked into the mirror; all of the hideous red marks I have looked way more faded than they usually do.

My only form of fresh acne is near my mouth/chin (The worst place to get acne). Trying to kill that off with my red light therapy device and Apple Cider Vinegar, though.

ACNE SUCKS SO MUCH BUTT! However today I am feeling a little better about it :) I tapped into a little internal confidence and focus after hiking up a mountain in the snow last night by myself (true story). It helped clear my head, a lot. Being out in nature and tapping into what life is really like, without the worry and the fear of judgement from acne, is the best.

Right now my face is clear. Drinking ACV with meals during the day has definitely helped in the way of oil production. However, at school, my face usually gets more oily, so I'm going to start drinking more water and drink ACV in the morning before I leave. My bacne has gone from moderate to mild, and seems to keep getting better since I've been applying ACV on it as well. ACV is a god.

Overall mood = content.

Lol I read through your post real quick and didn't notice that the kids you mentioned were relatives ;P Hey trust me I've been there with kids too. I've been told by kids that I'm ugly :(

I used to have clear skin a while ago(oh how i miss it!) and I never judged people that had acne. I would still talk to them and be friends with them. If people are THAT shallow you don't need them in your life. I actually feel sorry for people that are that shallow. People with that kind of shallowness are usually super insecure themselves so they feel the need to make others feel like crap. Very sad...

Eyebrow ones suck, buuut at least they aren't as noticeable since your eyebrow hides 'em kinda. Though they still hurt.

I hope school went well. and I'm glad you felt better after writing that, that's what this thread is for! :)

I've been quite happy with my face the past two days. Sure, I still have all of these damn red marks that cover my face, but every morning I wake up they look way more faded than they did, like...almost to the point where I'm comfortable enough to talk to someone face-to-face without moving my eyes away from theirs, or turning my head away.

I guess the new red light therapy device is finally working (Today was my fourth day using it), I also recently bumped up to applying 100% ACV on my face instead of 50% ACV and 50% water, so that's helping VERY MUCH.

I'm still getting the annoying 2-3 new pimples everyday, which seems to be slowing down the process of getting my skin clear, but whatever, my main issue with my face is the damn red marks.

I've had no new pimples the past 2 or 3 days, and everything has been healing well! I'm glad that my scars are healing too. It's all about patience and persistence!
