  1. Oh, to catch a break...

      Hi- Please Help? :)

      *** Thanks for the reply, Rorius. I would say my acne isn't very severe, but because I'm so pale acne shows up really clearly! Since posting the other day, I have had quite a big break-out and I'm really worrying now. I have a horrible feeling it's about to become quite a bit more severe; I've not known a break out like this in a long time. I will see if I can get a higher dosage of Zinc. Yes, I forgot to mention- I tried Benzoyl Peroxide for a long time, applying it according to the Regimen.

      Hi- Please Help? :)

      Hiya. I've been loitering around these message boards for ages! I wonder if anyone can help me at all. I'm 20, and I've been suffering with acne since I was about 13. It's pretty mild most of the time, but still bugs me enough for me to often feel down about it. I was taking Yasmin for about 2 years (for my skin- not birth control), and I seem to remember my acne clearing up a little at the beginning, but over the past few months I've frequently experienced more breakouts. Sometimes they ar

        Hi I'm so fed up. I'm so fed up and this is the only place I can come to vent, because I can just talk and talk and no one will interrupt me to tell me that I'm worrying about nothing, because I know that isn't true. I wish it was. I'm not trying to make things difficult for myself just for the sake of it. I know there are things in the world that are much worse than acne and that's something I keep trying to remind myself of, but still I feel so hopeless and down. I've suffered with this b

        List The Things Acne Took Away From You....

        Self-esteem Self-worth Confidence Balance What I had of a social life. My ability to be myself around people- I feel like I need to hide behind defence mechanisms such as frequent, unrelenting banter. It's exhausting. My autonomy, to an extent.
      4. Hello. It's been a few months since last I blogged about my skin. In that time, there have been no huge changes; my skin is not completely clear, and my confidence has definitely not rocketed skywards, but I have noticed some small changes to my skin that I find interesting and would like to share. So, a bit of background: I have been on the pill since I was 17. That has not changed, and I can't see it changing for a while. I started taking the pill for one reason, and that was my complex

        Clean? No. Clear? You've Got To Be Kidding...

        Heeey It's so good that you've noticed a difference in your moods, etc. so early into the treatment- you must feel like a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders. Do you know when you're first seeing the psychiatrist? I bet they'll be really helpful. It's great your mum and boyfriend are so supportive. Have your products started to make a difference? And at least you know about the effect of the Clearasil now! Nothing new is happening with me, really. Last night, I bought a clea

        Clean? No. Clear? You've Got To Be Kidding...

        Hi! So sorry this is such a late reply; things have been very busy here! Are you feeling better after visiting your doctor? A psychologist isn't such a bad idea. It sounds scary, and I know where you're coming from when you say you never thought you'd be in such a situation, but talking to someone about your feelings might really help you out. Particularly if it's not something you talk about a lot with your mum/boyfriend. Talking to someone who is essentially a stranger might encourage y

        Clean? No. Clear? You've Got To Be Kidding...

        Hello again Haha yes, nothing like a good rant! Sorry to hear you're feeling bad. It's definitely a good thing that you're going to see the doctor if you're feeling that down. The last time I went to see my GP about acne, and I explained that I was feeling down, he jokingly (I hope!) suggested that I put a bag over my head! I am sure that the person you see will take you very seriously, and they might be able to suggest some stress-relief techniques that will hopefully make you feel a bit h

        Clean? No. Clear? You've Got To Be Kidding...

        Hi! Sorry- I did reply to your message and when I submitted it, it took ages to save and, well... long story short, I have absolutely no idea what happened to my original response. Thank you so much for your message! In a really selfish way, I'm relieved that I'm not looking at/dealing with this in a really weird way, and that other people feel the same as me. I am so similar to you in the way in which I will hide in my room when my skin is acting up, and only come out when it's really neces
      10. I'm fed up. For some reason, I could handle acne a lot better when I was younger. Sure, I'd feel down about it, but I could bring myself to put on my make-up and, although I was aware of it, acne wasn't something I thought about every few minutes. I wasn't constantly aware of these horrible bumps on my face. Most importantly, I don't remember it stopping me from doing things, like seeing my boyfriend at the time. I didn't visit sites on how to get rid of the acne, because I wasn't obsessed, a

        This Is Why...

        It's almost ten o'clock. I have to go on a business trip tomorrow and my skin had not been dry for the past four weeks, so I was beginning to think I was on the right track. Today, my skin is dry to the point of a co-worker commenting on it in front of colleagues in the kitchen at work. Since then, I've been drinking lots of water and moisturing to no avail! Tomorrow I have quite a long plane ride which will no doubt further dry out my face, and then two full days of not being able to look c
