How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

Pretty awesome, had a nice few days with the other half. Now I'm sitting here playing zelda with a manuka honey mask all over my face ;3

(My dad thinks I've lost the plot)

Almost that time of that month and I haven't broken out!

Although, I've probably jinxed it now

I was feeling amazing and thought my skin would clear up very good . No I was wrong . I went two steps back because on new years I wore this foundation that might've broken me out . Sigh* I don't know what breaks me out or not ATM and my skin was looking a lot better with dryness but it's reversing . I guess because I took this multivatamin last week and maybe the vitamin e in it helped . Ran out since last week so I need to get some and test them out if that's what really helped the dryness/flakiness . I just hope my skin gets better in 2 weeks , have another special occasion -_-

Well the two huge unicorn horns, have eather almost disspaered or scabbedo ver and shruken, down they dovered up real good, and my forheads looking good. Unelss i turn into the sun. For osme reason a have a crap load of these small colorless dots all voer my forehead. I mean okay like 10 of them. and they look like acne bumps wheni turn in the sun. But when you look straight on in a mirro theyre invisble. Ill jsut leave em alone, and let them pass. So my forehead acutally is looking alot better. My left cheek surprsinigly has borken out the right one, oddly has the littel pink bump on it that ij ust noticed, or two. Theyre pinkish, and flat to the touch, but have the ever so lsightest bump in the light, its mostly the oclor that stands them out. Whatevs, some tea tree oil and theyll hide away. My nose and the top of my forehead are rather dry, my nose has been getting (in the crevices) a bunch of whithead pockets (pinsized but sitll EW) and so i have to pop em and TTO em so the infection doesnt spread so its dry as fuck there right now. But anyways, a little TTO on my barely potential. Let my forehead od whatever the fuck it is with its mini bumps (in my expereince they hela themselves, and its better to leave them the fuck alone, since theyre colorless and small and not relaly noticeable) and let the scab stuff hela. So yeah, my face is looking pretty decent. My new makeup feels kinda heavy, but whatever. It covers and looks nicer than my old shit ,and its Lcnique so its supposed to help breakouts.

Ugh, I realize all my posts have horrid typo's. Don't mistake me for illiterate, I can spell, ahahaha. I just rush through and type too fast. I'm starting to contemplate if those tiny dots are thhat rash i mentioned a wihel back, my neck is a little itchy today. Whatever, its a seemless thing.

Like your style!

Feeling pretty good myself. I've been out a couple of times this week and was out all day in harsh weather on Wednesday. There was a time when I'd return home from somewhere to look in the mirror and find a bunch of new pimples. Not this time. In both instances, my skin was exactly the same as when I'd left the house that morning - the tone hadn't changed, it wasn't oily at all, no new pimples. I even treated myself to a couple of foods which I'd been avoiding in order to clear my skin and consuming those hasn't bothered my skin at all either. If it is going to be the case, generally speaking, that I'll be able to go about my business and do as I wish without worrying what's going on with my skin, that's such a weight off, I bet removing that source of stress and anxiety will do it the world of good, too. smile.png

So I had quite a trifle iwth the whiteheads on mu nose after the shower, stuck a clean needle in the them about 50 times (no irritation) They just lcosed over withp us agian and again. I tihnk I got them tkaen care of though. That earea was So dry so i put my hleaing lotion around, also that part of my cheek got a few tiny little pink bumpies (theyre teeny, smaller than a needles tip almost...., the actual zit...but theyl eave quite osem redness, beucase theres like 4) So i was careful not to corss over borders with helanig lotion and those.Some i tohught were zits were jsut red marks form a while ago, that sometimes like to flare up for no reason. Theyre small though and i have TTO on them. I suspect them gone by Saturday. My forhead.....so many unsignifaicant bumps....Some are clearing after TTO. Theres a stubburn one up high, by my hiarlnie under my bangs (not a fat red one...but a bitch) The UH's are scabbing over and dried and shrinknig (although one got a peraly wihtehnead after the shower witch i promptly poked out iwth a needle and dried it with TTO.

So general status : bad ones on forehead helanig, samll one problem though Overall: better.

Cheeks: they were clear all break and this isnt relaly zits just...little shit bleh bleh's. Overall: Okay

Whole face: Doing finne:)

I am looking at the facebook group of the church I want to go to and damn even those people look perfect. but surely if there's a place where I won't be judged by my looks it's church right. :(

Couldn't deal with flaking any more, so exfoliated with brown sugar and olive oil. Skin feels sooo smooth, but I'm almost sure that I'll break out tomorrow. Like always. Fml. That's really weird. My skin is A LOT better, but I feel much more disappointed now than I did when my skin was a total disaster. Higher standards, I guess. :\

looked at my skin in natural light and was devastated at how bad it looked. on top of this i've found people i used to go to c ollege with 6 years ago and everyone has moved on, married, travelled, love. devastates me so bad. And i don't want to hear then go out and there and get a life. I've been trying to for 15 years but it has been an ongoing circle of false motivation, then crumbling from the false motivation. I just wish i'd get hit by a bus sometimes, or murdered. :( No actually I don't. I always search for the strenght to keep going, find it for a temporary period but then my skin gets worst messes up everything.

I don't know how I feel about my acne anymore. I came back from college for Christmas break with a lot of hyperpigmentation on my cheeks, which I've had for months now (the hyperpigmentation started randomly, like the beginning of October). I never thought it was that bad because there weren't any raised pimples, just redness, so I could easily cover it with makeup and my skin looked pretty clear. When I got home my mom kind of freaked out at my face, saying it had never been that bad, etc. which I disagree with because I've had cystic pimples in the past and those are the worst.

I just went to the derm on Wednesday and got prescribed Epiduo for night, Aczone in the morning, a sulfur based clarifying wash, and Monodox for antibiotics. I've been using everything everyday and I guess I had an allergic reaction to something because I woke up and my eyes were puffy, red, swollen looking. Just bad. I broke down in the middle of the day because I'm going back to college tomorrow and I had thought I would've had clearer skin by the end of break. I think my skin has actually gotten a bit clearer, but now it's very dry, so it's more difficult to put makeup on smoothly. The redness/swelling in my eyes has gone down, but I'll still need to put makeup on there when I leave for the airport tomorrow. Also I guess now I'm stopping the Aczone and sulfur based wash because my pharmacist told me that's what most likely gave me the reaction.

When I look at things in perspective, though, I feel that I must thank God that my worst problem right now is acne. And in all honesty, my acne is not even that bad compared to many other people's. My main problem right now is hyperpigmentation + small, red pimples on my cheeks. It's pretty easily covered up with concealer, it just looks somewhat flaky because of my dry skin. But it's nothing that defines me or defines how I look. I fully plan on waking up early tomorrow, taking a nice shower and exfoliating my face, blow drying and straightening my hair, putting on nice clothes and prepping my face for makeup. Then putting on my makeup, emphasizing my eyes to take away from the blemishes. And I know I'm going to feel a lot better about myself. I'm not going to let acne run my life or make me dread going back to college. I'm a firm believer in the saying "we are our own worst critic"--thinking about other people I know with acne, I've often either looked past it or only noticed it once in a while if they had a particularly bad flare up. People are not constantly scrutinizing my face, so why should I? Instead I should focus on my blessings in life and just look at acne as a temporary problem that I'm working on. It'll get better--I've had acne in the past and it usually clears up and gets a lot better within a few weeks to a month for me. I'm going to try my best to be optimistic and have better acne days!

Doing well, I have a mix of tee tree in the night and BP in the day going on and it seems to work very effectively.

Today was the first time in what seems like an eternity that I didn't wake up to at least one new pimple, it felt great :)

Well the UH's are GONE. All thats left is slight subtle pigmentation marks, which are easily covered and arent THAT bad. Although I do hope they dissapear sooner or later. The other problem i was having on the top of my froehead dried out and all thatsl eft is some dry ksin, PH (not relaly?) marks and tihs lsight bump on one of them thats browny pink. All all easily covered and looks fine. The one of my nose shriveled up. My cheeks have been really clear but today on thel eft one i sptted to slittle slight blumps (pinksih) (the usual small ones i get on my cheeks) on my cheekbone. Ehhh. Theyll may not even grow, and if they do theyre the good ol 1-3 day kind that I can handle. My other concern in one of the huge ones i get under my hiarline, well on sprouted in the corner but the hair there is rather fine and this one looks big. I'm not messing iwth it or picknig at it. Becuase i had one like this last week and I find if you leave these alon they dont get all dark pink and evil. It is a ump, but the ahir kind of conceals that, idk about the pinkness...its whatever. ahahaha. Im just leaving it lanoe and ont ognna irritate it. Only new pimples...the two on my cheek but tohse are hardly visible. My freheads almsto helaed. SKINS LOOKING GOOOD:)

guys you just have to finally get over it..

we have acne..

i finally just gave up and realized i have to live with it now and people HAVE to see me like this..

i went to a job interview today for the government and there were 12 others with me none of them had acne and we all had to take stress test

i realized my looks shouldnt be controlling everything i do because honestly some of the best looking people were the ones that failed all the test we took

and i got an interview tomorrow cause i was one of the ones that passed all the test!

just because i dont have perfect skin doesnt mean i cant perfect other things in life.. which i plan on forgetting about my skin(only causing more stress on me and my face) and focus on this new job and be the BEST at it one day its going to be clear again anyways

oh and ive been getting sun for about 5 days now and im not tan yet and you can def still see my redmarks but it helps a little bit having color in your face and its easier to not notice blemishes when you first glance at the mirror this also helps me forget about the acne.

just thought you guys should try it out(and no i havent broken out anymore than usual just because of excessive sun) not at all at that i tan for 2 straight hours and never burn at all *only putting dabs of zinc sunscreen on my redmarks) i suggest you try it ot so it can help you forget about the acne

have a good night everyone :)
