  1. Last year, my acne was awful. I was on oral and topical antibiotics and Tazorac, which did nothing but burn the shit out of my skin.and the tetracycline oral antibiotics gave me stomach issues. I also went on a no-dairy diet which actually helped a little. (I still avoid dairy). Despite all this, I STILL had acne. During the summer, I started looking into birth control. I knew my acne had to be hormone related because topicals did next to nothing for my skin, and my breakouts mainly occurred on

    It's Been A While

    Holy crap. That's insane, i was looking into SPF35, guess I'll have to think again. My derm was thinking of weening me off the tazorac the next couple of months so by summer it won't be too sensitive. My skin clears up naturally during the summer anyway so hopefully it works out. SPF's tend to clog my pores easily too

    It's Been A While

    So I was on the Tazorac for about 6 months until a couple of weeks ago when I got a HORRIBLE sunburn. I was wearing SPF15 but it was the first day in a while that I was in direct sunlight for an extended period of time, and I finally realized how light sensitive retinoids make you. I stopped using it after i burned so my skin could heal without being dried out by the Tazorac, and I still haven't started using it again. I need to visit my derm ASAP and find a good SPF of 30 or higher. My dermatol

    3 Month Mark

    So I haven't made an entry in a long, long time because I've been so caught up with a lot. BUT...I'm finally just about at the 12 month mark and I'm so happy with my skin. It's soo much better than is was 3 months ago. I'm still breaking out a little, and it is frustrating, but there has been significant progress. Unfortunately, like most acne sufferers, I have to deal with what other than scarring. I don't have much pitting (only a few minor dents) but I have really stubborn hyper pigmentation
  5. I think the thing with younger siblings is that 1) they are little brats in general, all the time and 2) they just don't understand acne yet. Maybe one day she WILL have acne and regret she ever said anything about yours. (I'm kind of hoping that's how it goes with my brother...it sounds terrible but he acts like a little shit) It is soo infuriating though. I'm frustrated by my acne enough as it is, people pointing it only multiplies that. My parents don't really say anything though, my dad had

    Gossmakeupartist (Youtube)!

    He is frickin incredible. I followed his how to make pores appear smaller video and it works. It makes my face look airbrushed! I also followed his powder technique (press with a powder puff) and it makes my makeup stay longer and look way more natural. He is the bestttttttttttttt!

    @amoxilworx I know, but my derm put me on the Monodox to alleviate some of the inflammation from the initial breakout from the Tazorac which has gone down. @unicorntears Thanks! I'm really glad it's turning around too, there's no better feeling than having clear skin. Good luck to you too! All I can say about retinoids is that it's a huge commitment...they put your skin through hell but if you stick it out it's worth it. 3-4 long, long months of waiting haha. Did your derm also put you on an
  8. Hells no! My skin gets waaay worse in the winter. I know most people break out more during the summer due to sweat, increase oil production, larger pores (humidity) etc. but not me. The difference for me is lifestyle. During the winter, I'm really stressed out, don't sleep enough and eat a poor diet because of school. Friggin' school. Plus I feel really uncomfortable around most of my classmates, besides my close friends. However, summer is a different story. Happy times! Most of my closest frie
  9. Omg no, I feel the exact same way. I get so worried about how my face looks, so in school I always touch up my concealer in the bathroom and I constantly feel like people are judging me for wearing a lot of makeup and that they notice how bad my skin is (because it's just plain to see). Like I remember this one time a classmate of mine was talking to me about another girls acne and in my head I was like, "What if people say that about me..." It got me worrying, perhaps too much lol. But people m
  10. Thank god, I'm starting to see great results. Most of the active acne on both sides of my jawline and cheeks have gone away. It's so smooth and soft! Unfortunately it doesn't look as good as it feels due to the red marks it left behind. I'm still breaking out a bit on my forehead but rather than having clusters of small pimples and a few big ones I just have like 2 big ones and the rest is smooth. I'm also just recovering from a horrible breakout on my chin (I started putting the Tazorac on that

  12. Ha, I secretly hope that happens to mine. Then he'll know what it's like and regret ever saying anything about me,. And it really is just the regular life of an acne sufferer, having people look you in the pimple rather than the eyes.
  13. I honestly don't even think I can pick just one. Maybe the biggest thing is that it just WON'T GO AWAY. No matter what products I use, no matter how i apply them, no matter how persistent I am, it's just there. Other things are: -How much money I spend on acne products, dermatologist visits, makeup products, etc.. Hundreds of dollars, much of which went down the drain. I can't even deal with drugstore makeup anymore because I always end up wasting my money. -How detrimental it is to my sel
  14. Oftentimes my closest friends will do it, and what's worse about that is that they know how horrible I feel about my acne. I've vented to them about it many times and they only make it worse by staring. I guess they just don't understand, with their perfect skin. But what the hell is so interesting about a pimple anyway that you'd rather look at that than my eyes lol????? In the eighth grade, I didn't have an acne problem yet but when I did get a pimple for some reason it would be HUGE. So one
  15. Honestly, I can still find a guy attractive even if he has acne. Much of this is due to the fact that I have acne myself and it's hypocritical for me to judge others based on their skin problems. But if someone has a nice face with nice features, acne doesn't impact that. Actually, I don't know if I could ever date a guy with perfect skin. I'd constantly feel ugly and like I'm being judged by him. I'd feel much more comfortable dating someone who knows what I'm going through and is supportive of
