  1. I understand your frustration. I think we all do here. Maybe the others don't, but we've experienced it. I also feel insecure. It's okay to hate it and be upset. But we have to understand our bodies aren't perfect. The emotional trauma acne causes lasts, but if you continue to try you're one step ahead of the disease.
  2. The best advice I can give you is to push your limits. I used to let my breakouts hold me back from everything, but then I just said f- it. I still have times when I just can't push myself, but the more you push through the bullshit thoughts we all have about our skin the more we get to live. It's a constant struggle, I wake up and go to bed everyday with negative thoughts about my skin, but the older you get the more you see past the stupid stuff we put ourselves through. We're human, so we're
  3. I've suffered from acne for 12 years now, which blows my mind, but you find ways to continue on throughout the struggle. It definitely does emotional damage because it's hard to live with. Support is crucial! It's okay to get upset over skin, it's your body! But also continue to find your happiness through things you enjoy and the people around you.

  5. I think our worst enemy is time. We know things get “better” with time, but we struggle to find peace in the moment. I’ve done chemical peels before and they didn’t help me. I just remember being so burnt and my skin was very unhappy. I hate waiting for my acne marks to clear, so I feel your frustration. Sunscreen is your friend right now. Use it whenever you’re outside. I use coverup to hide my breakouts, which helps because out of sight out of mind. However, the best treatment is to tell yours
  6. I just got off accutane in May and my skin didn't like the change. I went from clear skin to mild to sometimes moderate breakouts. SO FRUSTRATING. I went to my dermatologist and he prescribed me tretinoin cream .005%. I've tried tretinoin in the past and wasn't a huge fan, but my skin was not in good shape then (ha). I officially completed week 2 and I'm feeling hopeful, but still discouraged. I know the first few weeks are hell, but my skin broke out so much within the last two weeks. It's fina
