How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

Bad today, came off low dose accutane about 2 weeks ago, my chin has been constantly giving me problems but today I woke up with around 6 or 7 new little whiteheads, granted they are nothing compared to the stuff I used to get back in the day, but still its very discouraging because Ive been using all sorts of new supplements and cutting out all sorts of stuff from my diet in an attempt to control my acne post tane

However my history has proved that tane is the only thing that has ever controlled my acne and Im seriously considering going back on a very low maintanence dose whilst continuing with the supplements and diet. Weak man

Pretty awful, to be honest.

I started Accutane 2.5 weeks ago, and I think I'm hitting the initial breakout. The areas surrounding my nose are really dry and flaking, and I'm getting more blackheads. It's really discouraging, as I really need to get a job soon, but as it stands, I don't really want to go out in public. Especially in places with fluorescent lighting. My skin is both oily and dry (combination?) so it's quite red and shiny. Definitely the worst.

I know Accutane will do more in the future, especially when I get my dosage doubled in two weeks, but I wish it didn't look so bad in this interim step.

I'm ok... I looked at myself in the mirror with my glasses on (I'm nearsighted and looking at my acne in "high-def" makes it worse for me) and I was OK with what I saw. I don't have it as bad as one of my friends has, and I'm grateful for that but it still hurts a lot cause all my other friends have clear skin. I also have one pimple that's driving me nuts on my right temple. It doesn't hurt...I think what's happening is my hair is touching it and making it feel weird...y'know?

I'm also really happy that I have people to talk about this with...cause usually my Dad doesn't understand as much, although I know he tries. So...yeah...

The huge tender zits I had on my face (I had a total of FIVE that just popped up out of nowhere together :doubt:) are slowly going away... I've been using the Murad acne gel on the ones I didn't pop (which was two lol) and they're gone down in size after three days now. Almost gone. As for the others... ugh, I couldn't resist. Now I have dried over skin which of course I'm picking away at which will leave dents on my forehead for about a week when I get all the skin off. Oh well haha.

Also have a deep big zit on my cheek now; pretty much under the skin so it isn't too red but it hurts like hell. Many red marks on the sides of my cheek while my other cheek is clear as day and so is my chin. Oh joy :|

I'm spending the night at my friend's house tomorrow night so I'm nervous as to waking up with no makeup on. Usually spending the night at another house I don't get much sleep so my makeup doesn't rub off too much (I only keep it on overnight when spending the nights to avoid embarrassment. I wash at night alone don't worry :hand:) so I hope all will be well!

I'll continue this gel on these huge zits including the one on my cheek and hopefully they'll be gone within this week. I want to go back to school clear if it's possible so I'm trying the fasting thing while we have the week off.. let's hope for a miracle! :doubt:

Stupid acne fuuuuuuuucwefrgthyfhv

I feel pretty bad...

I put all of my emotional eggs into another basket of a raved about acne product, even though in my rational mind I knew I should be more cautious.. and I just saw my face in the mirror, after almost a week of using it... it looks worse than I remember it looking in a long time :( although it's apparently common that people break out on it in the first weeks, I've used other products that don't make me look like this. :( And my pimples are so itchy.

I'm sick of this and I'm running out of money to support my habit of buying acne products in hopes that they work. I just need new skin. :(

Baaad baad bad, I have a huge cyst/nodule on my right cheek bone that looks like it might aswell be a tumour or something, really fucking big, the biggest Ive had for a long long time. I have a bunch of whiteheads and normal zits popping up around the place, but I dont care about those, its this big fucker I cant deal with. Weird thing is it doesnt even hurt, but goddamn it is big and ugly.

My face is lookiin' prrreety haggard & gross. I kinda don't care, but do at the same time, I was out 'n about today with some nasty zits on my face and was kinda curious how people would react hahahah

buuuut I need to do some maintenance [aka popping] on some, cuz they're kinda unbearable right now, which I hate doing.

@Lyssa glad the gel has been working out!!

@wsxdrfvgy what product?

@JoeBloggs those big suckers are awful, to look on the brightside at least it doesn't hurt...

Ugh, my skin is hating me right now. I've got to start feeling positive about this or else it's just going to hate me even worse! :lol: Man! Gotta use some of that gel tonight, not to mention I haven't washed my face in days, ohhhh shit. :shy:

I feel so dirty.

EDIT: And oh, I failed day one of fasting... had kids over today to babysit so I automatically related that stress to eating :doh: guess I'll try tomorrow, and at least I'll get to rest! :boogie: Can only imagine how weak I'll feel this week...
