    LOVE to read, write, and socialize.
  1. Someone said they were interested in knowing, so I've decided to post my regimen, or my daily routine. The only prescription from the doctor I have is this Benzoyl Peroxide facial wash that is working quite well over the past three weeks. I began using it once a day, scared to waste it because I had only two refills, but I've started using it twice a day now. I've changed my diet significantly. I've gone on this Clear Skin Diet that is becoming hard to maintain because my family doesn't
  2. We all know that one kid in our class. That kid who is so annoying, never shuts up, and is always making stupid noises or something. Add on some acne and people are bound to make fun of them. November 20th, 2012 (I remember the exact date because it was right before Thanksgiving break here in the U. S.) 3rd Period, right before lunch. It was one of those unusually cold days in Florida and my friends Dillon, Bree, and I were on our way to our lockers before going to lunch. We were discussi
  3. I agree, I think more about people's feelings before saying something. You have made a very good point
  4. Great mindset you got there, I never really think that positively. I just think it'll past when I'm 16 or 17 like it did for my brother and cousin. You are stronger than acne, so hang in there kitty!
  5. If it's that painful and makes you feel that insecure, then try the safe popping method (with a needle and tissue paper, after a shower)
  6. Wow, first let me start off by saying what beautiful writing this was. Second, i know what you're going through, but it's slightly worse because my parents sort of blame me for my acne, so I have little support from them. I remember one time over the summer my face was BAD and I kept popping and making, leaving scars and craters. i barely went out and stayed in my room all day. The saddest day of my acne life has got to be when I realized it had spread not only to my back, chest, and neck, but
  7. This happened to me just last week, and I'm sure it's happened to many others. I was sitting in my Pre-Teacher class and we were reading this school approved magazine called Choices. Guess what was on the cover? An EXTREME close up of some kid popping a pimple. I knew that everyone thought of the only girl with acne in that class--ME. I was slightly horrified, but mostly embarrassed. It keeps getting better, though. The person who read the part about acne and popping pimples and such was a
  8. @sal1917 I believe a specialist would be a good investment, but I always feel guilty for making my parents spend the money. I tried to tell my mother how it makes me feel when she says these things, but she just replies "Well, then, why don't you clear it up?" *throws hands up in exasperation* this is exactly why I Googled this site. I felt like nobody else knew what it's like to deal with acne and I needed SOMEONE to talk to who did.
  9. I hate to look at myself in the mirror also and think "Ugh, you're ugly" every time I do. I've had acne since I was in the fourth grade and I wish i would've appreciated my skin more and taken better care of it when I was younger because now I seriously regret not doing so. i'mma try going on the regimen but only have a benzoyl peroxide facial WASH at the moment. It cleared up my skin two years ago quite nicely, but I stopped using it. Now I'm also trying to get rid of these unattractive dark s
  10. Scenario 1: I wash washing the dishes one night and feel a cold finger run down my scar and acne covered back. I turn quickly to see my mom standing behind me, with a mixture of sadness and disgust on her face. "Christelle, why don't you use a lotion or something to clear this up?" She says, as if it's my fault I have acne to begin with. I don't even try to explain that her stupid beauty creams could have oil and chemicals that could make it worse, because she would never u
  11. I know how you feel gurl, I can barely look myself in the mirror because of all the scars and bumps all over my face. I'm trying the Clear Skin Diet (Google it if you'd like) and am using Benzoyl Peroxide. You've probably heard this before, but drink lots of water! 6-8 cups. I'm trying, but find that I have to pee a lot But, the things I will do to clear my skin . . . Anyway, hope yours clears up. Don't give up hope, it won't last forever!
