I am new here and made my account because I really don't know where else to say this!

Since I was 14 I have he acne on my chin, I am now 20. Within the past year I would definitely say its got better. I used to have constant tiny spots which whee just there. Didn't grow or shrink or anything. Now I don't get these and my breakouts are less frequent so I am hoping that it's finally starting to get better.

Id never say my skin has ever been severe, but moderate. It has totally ruined my teenage years and so many times prevented me from going out somewhere because of a bad breakout . Sometimes I will skip days off uni if it's particularly bad because I just can't face going in looking a mess. I always use makeup to cover it up , which I don't mind cause I love makeup but It would be nice to not have to focus all my time covering spots. I just feel like I've wasted so much of my life because of this and it prevents me from doing things. I've been to the doctors twice and they've been less than helpful both times! After trying countless over the counter products I feel like nothing will ever work. I feel almost selfish because people have it so much worse than me, but I'm still really affected by this and all I want is nice skin. If I have clear skin I feel soo happy and confident but as soon as I get another breakout I get so miserable. I know that I'm attractive and it doesn't stop me from getting male attention and dates etc but I'd feel much more confident around men if my skin was clear. I am a naturally very confident person but this holds me back from being myself so so much.

I just wanted to share how I felt.

try treating your acne internally

Get a good juicer and drink fresh organic mixed vegetable juice daily. Carrot, cucumber, celery. Jucing book website have some great recipes. Also drink Wheat Grass juice. Very powerful juice. You will get it powdered form from amazing grass and fresh one from jamba juice

Cut down on acne stressors cola, caffeine. alcohol, chocolate, refined sugar, junk food and have beta carotene rich foods sweet potato, mango, papaya etc.

If juicing doesn't work after 1 month then I would suggest you go to a good hormone specialist/GP and do some tests.

You probably have a weak thymus gland Yoga, beta-carotene rich foods boosts the thymus gland.

the past 3 posts i've read have been 20 years of age ain't that a coincidence....i'm 20 as well anyways back to the post well I tried the over the counter stuff too didn't work, did the whole expensive laser treatments that made my face have red blotches for 2 days gave up on that, the only thing that has worked consistently is the proactiv stuff, but we all have different things that work for us. The trick is to find the one that works best and stick with it. I know how you feel in the i don't to go anywhere department because of my acne, I didn't go to Cancun or the Bahamas because of my acne problem it sucks, but I've come to see as I'm getting older my acne is getting less severe compared to my teenage years which where preety much hell. I also skipped some days from college when I had acne (I think it's also because I didnt want to go to Calculus either :D) these days though I've learned to stick with my regimen and even when I have a little acne I still go to class. I guarantee you almost all people with acne feel the same way in which they felt they've missed on a lot of opportunities, me included. As for the selfish part don't be, even the times when I have a couple of pimples to the times when my whole face breaks out I feel exactly the same like I want to hide and wishing for clear skin. The days I have clear skin im happy, confident, and a completely different person the trick is to be the same person even with acne which is challenging. Just remember it does get better.....eventually it'll just take time. It's good to get things off your chest and share them with people who understand what you're going through, i feel better when I do. I hope things get better for ya
