What Level Do You Think My Acne Is?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, Ive had acne for like 5 years now, im 17 now. I was hoping to have clear skin for the start of university... Anyways I was wondering if you thought my acne is moderate or severe, or somewhere in between. I think it has gotten better recently, but it still hurts my self confidence a lot. Thanks!rolleyes.gif

I have posted pics of my forehead, L Cheek, and R Cheek. Notice my Right side is far worse than my left, I sleep on my back, so my face doesnt touch the pillow, and i never touch my face so I dont know why this is.

So if you have any tips suggestions that would be great.

I was just looking for you to say what severity my acne is. Thanks again!

prolly mild, it just looks like red marks/scars mostly though. And your face looks red make sure you moisturizer, dry skin makes your skin unhealthy and can lead to breakouts.

They're like scars in the sense that they can take awhile (months to fade) same with scars. I still get acne so I don't really do anything about my scars yet, also because they're minimal also. But theres a scaring section on here with great tips. I heard lemon juice works.

While there is no scale to judge the severity of your acne, your acne has a degree of objectivity to it. I'm going to base my verdict on the type of acne you currently have. That is, I assume that your acne was never better or worse. Also, I will also base my judgement on the number and size of scars that I see on your face. If the scars are large, then it must be reasonable to conclude that it is likely that the acne had to have been big enough to create large scars. I do not see any deep ice pick scars. Also, I don't see any deep cysts or nodules so I would say that your acne is moderate.

Face mask to help fight acne and reduce scarring: lemon juice, honey and turmeric. I know it sounds like a weird combo but it works quite well. Just be careful with the turmeric as it can stain your clothes/towels.
