  2. Sorry, just realized those images didnt work, if you copy and paste the url, you can see them
  3. Could really use some help... been feeling so incredibly depressed about my acne lately, its just really getting me down and making me feel ugly. I know we all go through this at some point or another, but no one I know personally understand at all. Attached are some pictures of my skin right now...about half of those red marks are flat and half are active blemishes, and you can't see it but my cheeks are also full of what I think are clogged pores. I'm just so frustrated and I'm not sure wh
  4. for the past week my nose has been REALLY REALLY shiny... but not oily at all. in fact, it feels a little dry. This shiny-ness is persistent and cannot be hidden under makeup. has anyone had this problem? i don't know what to do

  9. about three weeks ago i had a really good facial that seriously cleared me up a lot...however this cleared up my active acne and not the stuff coming in so of course i have broken out again. Now i've started accutane a few days ago and I could get a facial again this sunday. i know this facial would clear my current breakout and i kind of really want to do it. but my derm says he thinks i should def NOT do it....he thinks it will just iritate my skin because of the accutane. but i know the fac
