Anyone From California That Wants To Share Acne Experiences?

Recommended Posts

HI EVERYONE! I'm from california and have been struggling with acne for quite some time now.

i never had really really bad acne but it was bad enough for me at least to go see a doctor. this was a couple of years ago when i was around 19 . the doctor put me on accutane and that was the cure really i had flawless skin i would get compliments almost on my the daily basis on how beautiful my skin was.... like 2 years after i got off of it my acne came back, it wasn't nearly as bad as before but it was still acne... today i get breakouts every other week .. they go away and come back .. right now im going through a breakout and its horrible!!!! i haven't even gone out this weekends because i don't wanna show my face its pathetic i know :(

currently I'm using the clinique acne solutions and it works to a certain extent but is not 100 % effective.

i wash my face in the morning and at night then i apply the tonic and moisturizer. i also try to eat really healthy i dont drink milk or soda and i cut down my sugar intake among other stuff.

sometimes i feel my life is over because of this acne ... theres so many things i wanna do but i feel this bad skin in stopping me from doing a lot of things.... for the most part i have kinda trained myself to be strong and keep my head up and it has worked but this past few days have been horrible , i feel i cant go on anymore im just a zombie... i hate hate this. does any of you guys feel this way???

We ALL feel or have felt this way. Go ahead and read the threads in the Emotional and Psychological effects of acne on this forum. You are not alone man. It's truly a disease.
