  1. Boy do i know how it feels. Seems theres a miracle cure for everyone out there but us. I'm sorry it didnt work out for you.
  2. I know probably no one cares to hear yet another stupid sob story but I just cant deal with this anymore. Ive had acne since seventh grade and I'm now going into my senior year of highschool. That's FIVE YEARS of being a creepy, ugly freak. I have never had a boyfriend or had my first kiss.. I am seventeen years old. Every day that goes by my life just gets more and more pathetic and I know its because of how ugly this acne makes me. I have been called ugly... I have had snide remarks made
  3. rockets- yes, that's all I can really do in the short term. I feel very grateful that the biggets issue in my life is acne, when there are a thousand things so much worse. But as a teen, it can still be hard seeing everyone else around you blessed with this beautiful skin. Some of my freinds don't even shower once a day and they have totally clear skin! TryTryAgain- I have been thinking about trying Dan's regimen. I am already using a light BP product and it's not doing much, so I'm a litt
  4. Yes, I have very very fair skin, and it gets dried easily, so i guess it's pretty sensitive. But I've heard a lot about lemon juice to fade the marks. I guess my acne is sort of mild, but sometimes it feels really out of control. About 1/3 the month there is nothing active on my face, just the marks, But the other 2/3s I have a few zits and stuff, and they never go away completely. I'm so tired of dealing with it. Im already cleansing/exfoliating and moisturizing, but I also use a toner and
  5. Sorry for the late reply, guys. But thank you for the support. The thing is, I don't know if it will ever get better. I feel like it has been progressively worse through the years. At the very least, the amount of red marks is growing. The other day I saw some pictures of myself a year ago and became very, very depressed to see I had no red marks back then. I wish I knew then what I know now, so that I could've prevented the marks or something. I eat moderately healthy, probably average.

    - smells good - makes skin feel tingly, fresh - does not irritate skin - exfoliates well - did not clear or improve acne This scrub definitely exfoliates well. If I don't use it every night, my face is visibly flakey and dry the next morning. It's also very pleasant to use and leaves my skin feeling fresh. But the bottom line is that it did not noticeably improve my acne or "unclog my pores". I have not tried any other exfoliating scrubs, so I'm not sure how this will fare
  7. I'm a 16 year old with dry skin, mild acne, red spots, and some scarring. I need help creating a regimen because I'm not sure where to start! I used to be on Proactiv a while ago but it did nothing. Then my doc prescribed a combo of Differin and some BP product that I forget the name of, but it made my skin really, really dry and red to the point of constant pain. And now I'm on Clinique's 3 step program which includes a Salicylic Acid cleanser and toner and a BP moisturizer. That hasn't help
  8. I've had acne since 6th grade and I'm now going into grade 11. So I really can't remember a time being happy about my skin or how I looked. It's progressed from mild on my forehead, to moderate on my cheeks/chin/jaw with lots of red spots and mild scarring. And... it's really starting to get to me. I'm 16 and I've never had a boyfriend or even been on a date. I know others who are in the same boat as me but the difference is, people would actually want to date them. When my friends talk abo
  9. I've heard of that, but where can I buy it?
  10. Im a 16y.o. female whos been dealing with acne for around 4 years, with fair, dry skin. Acne hasn't really bothered me before but now that I'm getting older, I'm getting pretty embarrassed. My acne was first on my forehead, but later migrated to my cheeks. But lately I've noticed that I don't really have "bumpy", raised acne anymore, it appears like it's on the same level as my skin or even a little underneath. There are some small raised parts but not many, and they arent that noticeable. I
