  1. Hmm, I'm not sure if I can use an aspirin mask. I'm actually allergic to it when ingested, but I don't know about skin contact. I guess I could try a little bit in a hidden spot and see what happens. I also forgot to mention that I'm allergic to a lot of cosmetics, the worst being makeup, oily creams (like Olay stuff) and heavily scented things. So it's a bit harder for me.. ^^;
  2. I keep hearing that exfoliation helps improve acne and the look of your skin, but is that really true? I get acne from simply touching my skin, such as by leaning on my hand. I've also gotten acne by others lightly touching my face. I never get severe acne, but I do get pimples that are quite painful and red. So I think exfoliating is a really bad idea for me, but what do I do to improve the look of my skin? It tends to look rather dull all the time..
  3. I used to get a lot of crap from people for my acne when I was in highschool, sometimes it got to me really badly. I would edit my photos and wear makeup (even though I am very allergic to it, wearing it would be quite a painful experience). Once I got out of highschool (well actually, around grade 11 I was doing correspondance so I no longer had to deal with the social BS that highschool entails). Anyways, being an adult really does help a lot. I haven't gotten any comments about my acne (it's
  4. Instead of scrubbing your skin so hard (and thus causing more acne) you should get some oil removing sheets by clean & clear. They remove the extra grease for me and don't cause any new acne (unless I press too hard).
  5. So I've been doing the BP regimen for over a year now (closer to 2) and I've found that it has stopped working. In the beginning I was doing it once a day and moved to twice a day. But now the effect has completely stopped. I was very clear for a while, but it slowly came back.. and I did not change the regimen or miss days. Now my face is not clear and I still get big/red zits sometimes. I finally just decided to stop a few weeks ago and my face has stayed the same as it was (not as bad as it
  6. I don't like wearing tons of makeup and photoshopping myself.. because then I wish I really did look like that and it makes me not want to let people see me in real life. I bet a lot of celebrities think that too, but what can you do. I don't think celebrities having acne is really a bad thing, I think it makes them seem a lot more human and it's easier to relate to them that way. :3
  7. You could look a little closer you know. Most of them have makeup on, but you can still see it underneath. Try zooming in if you have a small monitor or something. It's nothing severe and it is covered up, but it is there. *shrug*
  8. If any don't work, try copying the link and pasting to a new window. Some of these aren't the best examples, my apologies.. most of this is going by memory. Some people just have scarring rather than acne..

  9. Acne has contributed to many things over a long period of time to make me very introverted and it helped kill my self-esteem. Sometimes my acne is just so gross that I don't want to go outside at all, I don't even want to see my family or anything either :/
