Just last night i slept over at my friend's house and i was having a really bad breakout day ( i just started using benzoyl peroxide again after switching from salicylic acid, my poor stressed skin is purging itself, i think :doubt: Well anyway,i had to wash my skin and put some treatment on it to go to sleep and i couldnt even look at her in the eye when i dont have my makeup on because she has PERFECT skin....i mean so smooth, clear....ive never seen a pimple ever on her....and like i feel less than human around her, lol I tel her as if to apologize kinda, which i shouldnt, i know...she goes why are you breaking out? as if i know why...i said i dont know...i mean if i knew WHY i broke out, like the exact, fixable cause, i would be in a much better situation right? So anyway, i woke up in the morning put on makeup(oil-free, non-comodegenic) to cover my pimples which still shone thru (lol) and went shopping with her.....i was in the bathroom for like half an hour stressed out trying to fix my face....while she just washed her face with noxzema (can u believe it!! no moisterizer either!!) and looked gorgeous....anyone feeling as shitty as i do regarding the matter of friends and acne?

I totally know how you feel, all of my friends have perfect or close to perfect skin. It really fucking annoys me when they feel that they have to make the statement "you have a pimple on your face". Oh lovely, thank you for reminding me. I was trying to forget about it and have a good day, but thanks to my very best friend, its fucked up again.

Thankfully, I have one good friend that never comments about my face no matter how terrible it is. And when other people comment about it around me, she understands and sticks up for me. That's a true best friend.

The last time I was decent friends with a girl was when I was 16. I usually had worse skin, but mine really got bad after we parted ways. She got one zit at a time, but I still felt ugly. My bf now has perfect skin and he often tells me of how he had really bad acne (without saying anything about my skin, of course), but I really don't think I believe it. He has no scars whatsoever and I have seen old pics and none of them had any acne. I feel so self-conscious.

ummmm yeh all the time cuz none of my friends have acne. And when i mean no acne, smooth, soft, flawless skin. They don't just have clear faces but they are beautiful as hell too. I feel really inferior and ugly when I'm with them. it really sucks. But what can I do. See i have acne, oily skin, red marks, freckles and some facial hair. so i know exactly how u feel girl.

Sounds like me with my best friend. She would get a couple of spots here and there, but she never had to use any acne medication or creams. She just washed her face when she felt like it, no more, no less. I always felt weird when she spent the night at my house because she just fell into bed without a care and I had to spend a half hour putting acne cream on my face, and even with the cream, my skin never looked as good as hers. She never asked me why I broke out, she knew I didn't know. But it was hard watching her just drop into bed while I applied cream after cream on my face.

oh my god me too, i don't do drugs, smoke and I probably have like 3 drinks a year. And i eat lots of fruits and veggies.

But I do notice that even though my skin is extremely bad compare to my friends, I have lots of other things in my life that they don't have. For example, I never have to worry about family problems (my family is awesome), I have the best boyfriend out of all of my friends (my friends are pretty but most of them doesn't get treated very well by their boyfriends), I have great health (i don't even get period cramps and maybe a mild cold once every other year, thats about it). So I am pretty greatful for the good things i have in my life. But acne is still a big fat downer.

very true, your comment......actually examining my life it's not too bad...i have great sisters, mom, bi-polar dad, cousins etc I'm pretty smart...i'm in university and i consider myself to be attractive and stylish...so when you look at your life apart from acne most times it is pretty good and actually worth living...but it is a terrible problem to deal with because unlike most problems....this one is so recurrent and it seems like it JUST WONT GO AWAY and leave me the fuck alone!!! ***Screeaaaam!!!*** Acne Sucks

I can definately relate to the persistence of acne being so damn annoying. I find that it's very possible to be happy alot of the time, but then i get this realisation that i still hate my skin, and the insecurities it leaves me with.

:wall: <--- That is really what acne makes me feel like.

i have a friend and we both have had it, sometimes hers was worse and sometimes mine was..but we felt comfortable around each other beacuse of that..i could have a face full of pimples and with no makeup and it didnt bother me or her. in fact, she is the only 1 who could tell me my face looked liked shit without me getting upset.

Yeah! Most of my friends have great skin. My bf NEVER EVER gets a zit. NEVVVVER. I'm just like... oh gosh... don't look at me, when I'm not wearing makeup. It makes me feel so self concious sometimes.

My roommate has crystal clear skin and is always complaining when she gets a tiny little zit. I wont even look at her if I dont have makeup on. Being aroun her makes me feel like a monster. She never comments on my skin but I still feel like crap.

Same here, lucky for them.

At least I am the fittest, among the well build, among the most intelligent and have lots of friends. I wonder whether this is the cause of acne or is this because I avoid the mirror?

i think all of us with acne have those picture perfect skin friends that we just want to shake sometimes because they dont know how easy they have it (skin wise).

well you want to hear something sadder, my 3 year old drew a picture of me with pimples all over my face, my 10 year old made a point of showing it to me, and i felt like total shit! :(

But what I hate most is going to the cosmetic counters in the high-end department stores with my clear skinned friend. She's really into make up, so when we go it's always 15-20 minutes spend infront of the MAC counters. It's not just a counter though. There are makeup specialists, or whatever they are, who always want to give suggestions as to which of the million colors will go best with your skin tone. And she talks with them for a long time. All I can think of is which incredibly little pot of powder will best go with the skin color RED.

When my face clears up I'm going to celebrate by going there and proudly purchasing the one the make up person suggests for me.

That's the spirit girl!! :dance: I am going to do the same damn thing :D I'm not going to purposely avoid the makeup counters in fear that someone might say "Ma'am, can I help you find some makeup to cover up your horrible acne and those god awful marks". I know i'm exaggerating but hey...don't we all :shhh:

Actually most of my friends have "perfect" skin male and female ones. And guess what: They have their problems, too and often can´t understand when you complain about acne. Your own problems are always the worst!

my best friend has PERFECT skin. i don't think she's ever had even a tiny zit in her life. and it actually pisses me off... cause it's like she will never understand why i'm so unhappy. and once, my other friend (who has nice skin, but breaks out occasionally) had a tiny zit and my best friend made fun of him and told him it was disgusting. i wanted to kill her.
