How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

Hopeless! After eliminating almost all acne triggering foods I still get brakouts. Not Fair!!!

really? thats real discouraging...maybe diet doesn't cause acne after all. What foods did u avoid if you don't mind me asking?

I feel gross today. It really is a roller coaster. Some days, I just think "effit" and forget about it, others I feel extremely self-conscious. I avoid dating because I don't want anyone to get too close to my face. It's a bad day.

Please, read my thread ( list of my eliminations) in Holistic section. It hasn't worked for me yet, but it might cure YOUR acne. Don't give up.

I've read through a decent amount of this thread over the past few weeks and I saw some posters who I don't see post that often anymore (since this thread spans back to 2009). It was sad to see so many people down and defeated. I hope their lack of posting means they're finally clear and have no need for this place anymore.

This might sound weird but I feel excited! I was diagnosed with acne rosacea and now I finally know what's this mess on my face, what things to try, avoid and search for! I hope my skin will get much better smile.png

I honestly feel like crap today. I'm not going out today as I'm going to try and eliminate the size of some of my pimples. I don't have severe acne but, I feel embarrassed. Why couldn't the world be free of acne?? Then there wouldn't be so much drama!

Just a blue day to me. Still obsessed over my skin imperfections, it isn't so bad tho. Slowly losing sanity over this acne-diet-washing-pills thing. I hope I made any sense.

I'm feeling pretty good. Not as good as other days because I've had a few whiteheads emerge but this week has been great overall. Really suprised how good my skin looks considering I'm just back to school. Red marks have faded noticeably too :)

Stay positive everyone. In this together :)

Oh hai there. Well my forehead is doing okay. I have about 5 tiny baby little tis sprinkled acorss it. Not big deals, not rlealy red, or big, like little pinheads. And thats been the state of the matter for tihs week. Just some TTO and otherwise theyre not that big of a bother, just a few little dots in the sun. My cheeks have doing fine but on my right Im seeing this bump in the light. Im wearing makeup right onw becuase Im going out and I didnt see anytihng tihs morning but I see a bump now.... Suspicious. Eh well TTO for it. All in all my face is doing okay:)

Well it's gotten worse since my last post. I'm getting many papules and pustules and I feel just horrible. I don't know if it's from a cream or what. I really hate having such a messed up skin!! And I've realized I have 2 new shallow scars from previous breakout.

It was fine for a week but now another breakout. ughhhhhh

I know how you feel. The worst moment for me is when I think I'm clear and am happy and then 1 day they start coming back. Makes me feel so defeated and upset sad.png. Then I spend hours thinking and analyzing why they came back. What did I do wrong??

...I was crying last night too. I wish I didn't care so much!

Not so good today. Was doing so well then I got a painful thing on my chin (The ones that stick around for a while and never come to a head) Then of course I had to destroy my face by trying to pop it and these TINY ones beside it. So now my face is sore, red & lets face it scabby and looks even worse with make up on. Probably scarred myself to :\

Why o WHY can't I just leave them alone?

Feeling alright, took a girl out to dinner for the first time in a while. I did wear a little foundation though, feel like a douche doing that but I really like this girl so whatever. I dont have very many actives anymore but the PIH is the killer. Other than that doing good, much better than 2 weeks ago

well theres a reason for it. do you diet? think about what you ate last week or maybe 2 weeks ago.. any fatty greasy foods? any chocolate or junk?

its cool bro every guy that has acne has thought about the make up deal at least once or twice.. just hope you did a good job! i had a KILLER acne on my lip onces and it left the WORST redmarks ever it looked like herps i hated it it was there for like 2 months and i used to put a tad bit makeup on the lip with a q tip but you gotta check it in the mirror good. usually outside in the car mirror with the sun hitting your face. because people especially girls(they no what their looking for in makeup obviusly) can really tell when someone is wearing makeup! even if it looks smooth in the bathroom mirror i found out in the car you could see a patch of makeup! So i hope your lady friend didnt notice anything!
