I would like to first say how great this website is, it allows us acne suffers to share our views and consequently not make us feel lonely. When you have acne, you tend to feel lonely because you look at other people and everyone seems to have clear skin apart from you and that makes us begin to question ourselves; "Why me? Am i jinxed?". So this is a heart felt Thanks to Acne.Org.
Ive decided to set up this BLOG to help me battle my acne. I think i know what causes my acne, so i guess im fortuante in that sense. But the problem is that what causes my acne is something i love and cannot get enough of it. Anyone wish to venture a guess? . . . . . SEX. Yes that dreaded 3 letter word that makes parents shiver whenever they here their young children talk about it, and teenagers excited and jump with joy. I am a typical boy in the sense that i am 20 years old, love sex and girls. Whenever i realise a girl likes me, i think about sex immediately. Its great (you know the act, performing it, WOW), i just love it! But obviously i regret it several days after when i notice huge bumps on my face, ironically like i am now. I have surfed the internet for numerous hours each day for the lasy year to see if there was a way i could find a solution to counteract this problem, and guess what, there doesnt seem to be a straightforward solution.
I have been on websites that offer to lower your testerone which in theory lowers the production of oil. I am no scientist or doctor but like many acne suffers have done my OWN research and it seems that the more sex i have it causes excessive DHT which triggers the acne. I wish i could stop the DHT but i dont know how and i have read on various websites that you cant, well not safely anyways.
Well, about my condition now. My skin looks really bad at the moment, well that is how i feel anyways. I have several large spots on my chin, i dont even think they are spots, more like lumps! They hurt everytime i make facial movements or move my chin around. Damn!!!!!
I know exactly what i need to do to prevent further acne in the future and to clear my bad skin now. I have to "basically" eat a healthy diet which consists of no dairy products, no sugar foods, enough hours of sleep a night and the most difficult thing for me, STOP SEX or limit it to about once a month. I honestly have no qualms about the previous three but the latter is something i struggle to cope with. Well i am seriously motivated to beat this acne so i am gonna give it my all and beat acne!
