    Hmmmmm, well for starters I really love working out and trying my best to be healthy =P. I like to play guitar, sing badly, build computers, play video games, and really just chill and make new friends. :)
  1. I wouldn't worry about it, man. Everybody there is going to be sweaty and nasty. Hell, you may even luck up and your skin may improve while you are there! Honestly though, you probably won't even have time to think about it. Do what you can, when you can, and forget about it the rest of the time.
  2. I used to struggle with oily skin. I'm not entirely sure what caused it because I've changed a lot of things and my skin has cleared up. However, what I can say is that now I only wash with a cleanser once a day. In the morning I splash cold water on my face and that's it. I know a lot of people say that washing your face more can irritate your skin, but I have found that cold water is actually refreshing. I believe that where most people run into irritation (for the most part) is by using warm/
  3. I'm going to suggest something that a lot of people probably would be afraid to do with acne prone skin. If it were me, I would put some Neosporin on it. Not the pain reliever kind, but the other stuff. I've used Neosporin on my face before with no problems, but everyone is different. However, if you want to prevent scarring you can't really beat it. If you put a good bit of Neosporin on it before bed and leave it overnight (maybe up to 12 hours) you may wake up to see that your skin has healed
  4. I would say that you would be spot on here. Those red marks are usually going to cover more than one layer of skin, which is why it can take them a while to heal. They are likely being exposed more now due to exfoliation, definitely part of the healing process. Personally, I exfoliate every day with a wash cloth without having any problems to keep any dead skin cells off of my face.
  5. There really isn't going to be an exact time frame anyone could really give you. Everyone's skin is different. Some people can work up to a higher dosage much faster than others. You will basically have to play it by ear and gradually increase your dosage. If, at any point, you notice that your skin is drying out again, take that as a hint that you're going too fast. If you dry your skin out, it may look ok for a short time, but dry skin is not healthy skin and it will catch up to you.
  6. Well, there are a few things that you need to understand about shaving. I noticed you said you don't use a cream, and that could actually be contributing to the problem. Razor blades WILL irritate your skin, thus the reason shaving cream was created. It acts as a lubricated barrier between the blade and your skin. And as we all know, irritated skin will likely resort in a breakout. It's also important to wash the area with some kind of soap or cleanser before shaving. Exfoliating the area after
  7. @Thehoper Man, I can't agree with you more when it comes to how screwed up your skin can get when you are using all of these chemicals. I remember using this face wash a derm prescribed to me once, and it burned the hell out of my face when I used it. It's not the doc's fault of anything though because everybody is different. That was probably a couple of years ago, and I have still been struggling with my skin. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's not. Over the past month or so, I have
  8. Gosh, don't you hate it when your skin cooperates when you really don't need it to? Unfortunately I don't have any experience with the medication you mentioned. However, maybe you could take some pics to take to the derm next time you break out. I have always had mixed feelings about the derm because a lot of the time I feel like I'm in and out too fast, so I don't feel like I'm really getting taken care of.Best of luck with the meds though. Maybe you will get lucky on your first try

    Me Me Me Meeeeee =P
  10. Well imo I believe some people actually use their hair as a mask to help hide the imperfections caused by acne. That's not even really just an opinion, because I KNOW I used to do it. I know I can't be the only one, right? =P It was easy when I had long hair. I don't have huge breakouts or anything, but it was always easy to hide red marks n such just by letting my hair fall into my face. Obviously after getting that hair chopped off your face is going to be more exposed, and you can't hid
  11. LMAO! I literally loled at this xD But ya, I don't really talk about it with anyone. Nobody else I know really has any problem with it, so it's not the most comfortable thing in the world to talk about.
  12. It's funny when you think about it. I agree that stress can definitely be a factor in an individuals acne. It's almost sinister...it can play a part in an acne flare up, and an acne flare up can cause you more stress...It's a brutal cycle!! Truth, don't stress. Even if stress has nothing to do with YOUR acne, it's definitely no good for the rest of your body either. So, lets be kind to the rest of our body too! After all, without your body where would your face be?! ...On the ground, getting
  13. Very good story. It is pretty funny, we are our own worst critics no doubt. I actually went out on an awesome date tonight with a girl I just met. To my surprise she actually told me that I'm much cuter than she was expecting(first time meeting face to face =P ). The funny thing is I thought I was having kind of an off day as far as looks are concerned, but I brushed it off and said whatever, haha. I couldn't help but think to myself about how I obsess over even the slightest imperfection, beca
  14. While I wouldn't say to not wash your face, I would DEFINITELY say that you are washing it wayyyy too much. 2 times a day MAX!!! When you do wash, use lukewarm/cool water. Some people make the mistake of using hot water, which can actually irritate your skin. Use one cleanser each time you wash, and you may want to consider only exfoliating every 2 or 3 days. Exfoliating is definitely useful and really helps remove dead skin cells, but do it too much and not only can you strip your skin of ess
