Tomorrow (the 15th) is my 20th birthday!!!

I just got a job at an organic market, so now I get 20% off on all the natural shit I try for my acne.

I was talking to my friend today about guys. I was telling her about this guy I'm interested in, and she asked me if I thought he liked me too. The whole time I was afraid she was thinking, "Who is Katie kidding? Poor thing, no one would really like her..." I'm crying right now just thinking about it. You guys all say really sweet things that help make me feel better, but I know you all know how hard it is. I know there are SOOO many things that are INCREDIBLY worse than having acne, but it just hurts a lot... :confused:

Anyway, I have a party this Saturday and that guy I like will be there, so hopefully I'll stay as clear as possible. Plus I bought a cute new sweater to wear, so that helps me to feel a little more confident :pray:

    yo katie,

    about the apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil: BE CAREFUL! i would only use either of these in very very dilute concentrations because they are powerful.

    what are your reservations against accutane? i think you would save yourself alot of time and stress if you took it, but if you are very much against it, then stick to your guns and good luck with your skin.

    thanks, yeah i learned my lesson after i used too much of both acv and tto on separate occasions ;)

    listen up people, for the third time: the reason i can't do accutane is because i'm going to be out of the country for 6 months and wouldn't be able to be under a doctor's supervision. accutane isn't even an option until august 2006. i'm trying these natural remedies so that i can bring the ingredients i need to argentina (or buy them there) so i can be consistent in my skin care (ie not have to rely on hoping that a certain brand or product will be in buenos aires :D )

    thank for your comment and input :D

    I was going to delete your comment, but I decided to leave it up so everyone can see what an ass you are.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Katie!

    My advice to you is just go out there and have some fun (just don't drink too much) ;)

    But seriously, you are a very pretty girl. Like many people have said, your eyes are stunningly beautiful. If you ever meet a guy who is not interested in you because of your skin, he is not worthy of your time. I mean that.

    Dust the haters off and just enjoy life!

    Heya, your skin isnt so bad....and I like the fact that your picutres are honest, unlike those that only take pics with globs of make-up on, in good lighting, with a crappy cam that makes them look completely flawless and then complain about how bad their skin is :D And yes that Paul guy is a dork azz, forget what he has to say and just keep smiling ;)

    Oh and Happy Birthday! You're no longer a teen :D haha Hope you have a good one :lol2:

    The same thoughts have gone though my mind. Some one laughing in their head for me thinking some one might like me. You are beautiful and I say that from the bottom of my heart :D Acne sucks, I know but when ever you are feeling bad just remember that this too shall pass. I love you eyes and you have gorgeous teeth. I wish my teeth were as perfect as yours. You are right though, Paul is an ass. Keep your chin up, BEAUTIFUL ;)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY :D

    hey katie,

    oh, i remember reading your reason for not taking accutane... sorry about that.

    my advice is to be very very cautious with what you put on your face. once you irritate it, with synthetic or natural AHAs, BHAs, scrubs, cleansers, etc., it takes a LONGASS time to get your skin tone back to normal.

    have you tried just minimal washing? like just a cleanser and a moisturizer. i would recommend washing with purpose and and moisturizing with jojoba oil. just using these and forgetting about the masks and spot treatments might really help with any inflammation. for me it seems the less i wash my face, the better it is, but i'm not completely sure yet.

    anyways, i hope you have fun in buenas aires!
