  1. 100% agree with you. I've always loved autumn/winter and loathed the summer (regardless of acne). However, I feel much more comfortable this time of year due to more hours of darkness. In the brighter summer months, I feel much more exposed and vulnerable. Wish it was winter all year round.
  2. Hey guys/girls. I've not posted here in a couple of years, but I'm starting to struggle with my acne again lately and I'm just on a bit of a downer this evening and had a bit of a cry after I washed my face a while ago (thanks to the hideous red marks covering my face). I just can't seem to win this battle....i drink nothing but water, I eat lots of fruit and veggies, I keep my face clean, I take vitamins, I've seen the doctor, yet I'm still suffering with acne after 10 years. I don't know w
  3. Hi there! I can't recommend the clarisonic enough!! I got mine over a year ago...it didn't make me break out at all! Your skin feels so clean and fresh after using, and it makes so much difference. I'm still using mine now! It's got rid of my acne and is clearing up my red marks significantly!! I really suggest investing in one. Hope it works for you!

    1. I've been using the clarisonic for about 3 months. My sister talked me into buying it, and it was the best thing i've ever agreed to. My marks have faded drastically, my skin is always so smooth, so glowy, and just feels a lot cleaner. I've had so many compliments about my skin (even my manager at work has even said how great my skin looks lately). So I would highly recommend this product. It's a great investment!
    2. Hey! Thanks a lot for your comment!! That's cool u liked my little list! :)....my skin isn't as oily as it once was, but it gets a bit shiny during the course of the day. I'm interested in doing aspirin masks....how do you do them? How often? any advice? I'd like to try it out. :)

      1. I love a good thread full of optimism. Here's a list of things I love; *Being at home with my family *Finishing work after a long day *Pay day *Listening to the sound of the rain *Snuggling up in bed reading a good book *Music!! *Cold, winter days *Stargazing....i love the feeling of feeling so small and insignificant in the bigger picture *Pyjamas. Nothing beats lazing around the house in comfy pj's *Having an intelligent conversation with someone *Reminiscing with family/friends about the "
      2. Hello!! Thought i'd pop by and say hi! How be you?? :)

        1. I work at Canary Wharf! Fab place to work. How's the tourism course going? I did travel and tourism @ college and one of my mates went to uni to do same course as u! I failed my driving test the other day. Got 3 minors but hit the kerb whilst parallel parking, so i failed! boo lol. I'll get there eventually :)

          1. ahh it's a small world indeed!! Love lakeside, spend a lot of time there, can't wait to pass my driving test and finally drive there myself haha...what u studying @ uni??(sorry i'mj ust being nosey now) lol.

            1. Hello there fellow Essex'er!!! I'm not too far from yourself really...i live in the Rainham area. Was in your neck of the woods at lakeside y'day lol!!! You're the 2nd essex person i've found on the org hehe x

              2. I couldn't have said this better myself!! I'm an extremely paranoid person, and I always worry about what people think of me when they see me, because when i see my reflection or a photo of me, all I can see is the acne scarring. But most people won't see what we see. They see "the bigger picture". It is always a shock to me when someone says i'm attractive, because I don't see myself that way at all .Just last night, i was at a restaurant with my family. As we left, the waitor said to my
              3. I know what you mean. Any time I'm watching the telly, and one of those adverts come on, i have to walk out of the room. And another think I hate about these adverts is the fact that they get models with the most beautifully flawless skin to appear on these clearasil etc adverts. Honestly, they have no consderation for how people with skin issues will react when viewing the adverts. pff
              4. I've not been here in a while, but i really feel like i need to have a rant to make me feel better.... I'm just to the point now where i'm totally exhausted with the effects acne has on me. I've just turned 20, and i've been dealing with this for 8 years, and i've just had enough (i'm sure a lot of you will understand how i feel) I work as a receptionist, so I meet and greet hundreds of people every day, and someone I served today, made a nasty comment about my skin, and I wanted to cry, but
              5. Y'day, I saw a guy who had lots of acne scarring, but needless to say, he was one of the most attractive people i've ever seen. Acne/scarring doesn't bother me in the slightest.
              6. omg hi!!! It took me like 5 mins to figure out who this is lol... ain't seen you around in a while (then again, i've hardly been on the org myself). I'm doing well thanks, yourself?? what you doing these days? x

                1. Rupert....long time no see. How you doing these days? Happy belated new year!! :D

                  1. Well, I haven't posted here in a very long time, but now i think i need to again Right now, I am feeling depressed, miserable, completely ugly, worthless, I have zero self esteem, no confidence. (Not a good combination) My skin has been doing so much better the past year, really clearing up. But i woke up this morning and it looks the worst its ever been. I'm so tired of this. Someone please tell me something to cheer me up
                  2. hey!! Well, i watched the first 2 episodes on monday and its pretty damn good so far. So it looks promising. I've been busy at work this week, so i haven't had the chance to watch anymore yet, but will do the weekend. Will keep you updated :D Have a good wknd!

                    1. Thanks a lot for the link...i'll check it out today. No doubt i will be hooked on it! :D

                      1. haha glad i'm forgiven :D I've actually never watched lost...but maybe i should rent the boxsets or something coz all my mates love that programme and have tried to make me watch it in the past :-)

                        1. I feel the same way quite frequently!! Today for instance, I had plans. However, I woke up, took a look at my skin and decided to stay indoors feeling sorry for myself. It really sucks how the condition of my skin sometimes rules my life.
                        2. woah long time no talk treasure. I am doing great thanks, and yourself? Hows life treating you? Hope you're all good :Dx
