Actually cried over the state of my skin today... I get upset or annoyed about my skin or close to tears often enough but I don't think I've ever actually cried about it before. And now I feel like an idiot for it. I'm just so sick of it.

Nothing wrong with crying over your skin, it can sometimes help to release some of the inner pain we all feel towards having acne issues.

I think a lot of us feel like this all i can do is give you a hug and keep your head up

I love you. You love me. Were a happy family! biggrin.png

Thank you both :) It does make me feel better being reminded that I'm not the only one feeling like this and that most people around here would understand. I guess its just been one of those days for me.

Aww @Lilly75 don't be so sad... just think of the future, that's what I do, but have a positive attitude. Don't think about how 'bad' it is now, think about how much better it will get. You gave me such good advice before and I feel bad hearing about you like this, I hope you are ok

Yeah, I saw pictures of people with acne and I dunno why I complain 'cause they have it way worse. Even if my was like them, I shouldn't feel down 'cause I am not the only one with this problem. I was prepared for this anyways,, I chose to stop applying chemicals and so I broke out 'cause of that.. it is pulling out all the toxin that was left since they were prevented by BP, so they're coming out.

Like crap. Just over it. I've put on a strong fight for a while...but eventually people reach their breaking points. To me this is a curse. I don't understand why anyone should have to go through this. The hardest part is not having an answer as to why this is even happening to me. What am I doing wrong? I'm sick of being patient and telling myself it will get better when I don't know if it ever will.

Yeah there are people who will have acne a lot worse than mine, and people who will have less than me, but it doesn't seem to matter in that nearly everyone with acne is emotionally effected by having acne - no matter how light or severe. It's a pain to deal with sometimes but I think it's good to keep it in perspective - it is 'just acne' (compared to things that others have to deal with it's nothing). Keeping a positive outlook always helps too. I'm working on building that up again

Aw thank you smile.png I am feeling better today - though it's still morning so you never know...

I normally keep a positive attitude toward my skin. I know stressing and worrying over it won't help. But sometimes, like yesterday, it all caught up with me I guess and I just broke down. I'm working on building that positivity toward my skin back up

And reading these comments of support from other users here really helps me feel better. It's a reminder I'm not alone in this - and it's ok to have a 'bad day.' 

Also, glad to hear you thought the advice I've given before was helpful.

This sounds a bit like how I was feeling yesterday. I felt completely over it and like you said: " I've put on a strong fight for a while...but eventually people reach their breaking points." Sounds exactly like what happened to me.

I also am sick of being patient and hoping it will get better - but it's really all we can do. Even if you were to take a medication like accutane - that's not without it's risks and it would also take time and require patience.

I hope you feel better soon and know you're not alone - nearly everyone here will have thought the same thoughts you are regarding acne and will understand what you're going through.

Try to remain hopeful and positive. :) It will all work out. It has to.

Looking better. I only have like 1 active zits, but I have a few red marks and like 3-4 pimples that are dried which will decrease. I think aloe vera (fresh) is working well. I apply a lot instead of a little bit. It does absorbs really fast. I am being careful not to let my skin dry, if I notice that it is getting dried, then I will start applying jojoba oil as a moisturizer which it did broke me out with small zits, but I don't mind.. I saw that this normal, it happened to a lot of people.

I feel awful, I wish I could hide. My face was starting to clear up, but fresh deep cysts are coming from the ones that were going away. I have a horrible painful one on the side of my cheek. I wish like hell I didn't get them near my mouth or chin, or at all. Like another poster said, I feel frickin' cursed. I am sick sick sick of this. I can't stop crying because of how deformed I look. (Sorry for being so negative but really - why do we have to suffer through this?!)

The only thing that seems to help a little is the egg whites and honey method. Or using BP but then my skin is soooo dry and flakey no matter how much I moisturize after washing my face. Aloe does nothing. And I'm never ever ever using someone's advice with the tea bag again - it leaked through the cloth and stained my skin so it looked even a million times worse than before. I felt like such an idiot in desperation to be rid of them.

EVERYONE WHO IS HERE AND FEELING CRUMMY. Do me (and, more importantly, yourself!) a HUGE favor and just do this -

Take a deep

breath

Hold it in for a moment

then let it out.

Let your eyes be a bit unfocused on something other than the computer screen. Fuzzy vision, you know. And smile. Force it if you must, but DO it. Let your lips curl up into that familiar pose. You deserve this! Remember that you DESERVE happiness, no matter what the condition of your skin. You are lovely and wonderful. I know it doesn't always seem that way; anyone who has dealt with persistent acne knows that. But! Though you may not be able to choose your skin's appearance at present, you *can* choose how you respond to it. I am NOT saying this is easy, by any stretch of ANY imagination. It is, however, possible! And I want all beings to be happy, just as I want myself to be happy.

Writing things like this helps *me* remember not to get so caught up in the moments of obsessive skin-talk. My mother keeps reminding me - no matter what, this will pass, ultimately. Remember that, too! You have a beautiful, bright future ahead of you. It is sparkling and beautiful. It is full of promise. And YOU are full of promise.

I know I sound like a self-help book (Hey, not a bad idea, eh? Market a book to people with skin issues... :D) ... but I mean it. No one should feel bad because of something like this. Or, well, any disease - but we all know that's easier said than done.

Have a beautiful day. <3

I'm not breaking out like crazy anymore.. I think it is calmed. Now i get 1-2 zits once in a while. Sometimes I get painful ones that take a while to heal. So far, aloe vera is giving me good results.. my skin feels normal.. I also notice improvement on red marks. My forehead is 99% clear.. I had so many, it was terrible. Now I am dealing with scars and redness.. :X

My skin is getting no improvement, though I refuse to still go back to BP so that's something I have to endure, anyway what I dread most is going back to schoooool =/ and look awful with this breakouts and scars that I have so yeah but once everyone seems to have their says and comment and criticism towards my state then life moves on, eventually they'll stop to notice coz they get used to seeing it anyway.

You're doing the right thing! I'm glad you refused to go back to BP. My skin went bad after I stopped applying BP which is common, once you stop, you'll breakout within a month. It got to the point where my skin was so bad, but I still refused to apply BP. However, I did applied just on affected area, but then I decided to just stop using BP on affected area. My skin is slowly getting better with occasional breakouts. I am treating it naturally which I find that the aloe vera is helping. I hope you clear up soon! I don't know how long it takes for the toxins to come out of the skin.

Veeery bad. I have like 3 pimples but thing is that I have so many red marks that it just looks like I got a hundred. My skin just looks awful...I've been using BP again for like more than a week, 2.5% by Neutrogena...but this one doesn't seem to work as well or quickly as the 10%...But I think 10% would be too harsh for my skin in the long run and the dryness and flakiness would be too much. Sigh, wish I could get nice skin already and stop feeling disgusting and wanting to die everytime I look in the mirror.

Thanks for those encouraging words. =) I have observe that it seems that main problem of my skin is how oily it can get so I guess that clog the pores and eventually turned into acne. =/ Are you using aloe vera all over your face or just spot treatment?

My skin looking better and better as day past by... I exercise more often and aloe vera (fresh) is finally working pretty good.

My skin used to be greasy or w.e and so I started applying jojoba oil and my skin is now normal. I saw that jojoba oil is similar to ours, so I am tricking my skin which doesn't product oil ^^;; I use aloe vera (fresh) all over my face. I apply this at least 2-3 times a day. Whenever I make a smoothie with it, I just apply it on skin. I heard it contains a lot of benefits so I always add it into smoothies, just a little piece.

Today my skin look great!! very smooth. I'm glad jojoba oil is working. I did broke out with tiny bumps which they were noticeable, but not breaking out anymore.

I hope Jojoba oil, aloe vera (fresh), and indian aztec don't fail me. My redness faded a lot and I see improvement on scars. I haven't been on this site lately 'cause I am clearing up, hopefully.
