  1. Well, I used to be a frequent contributor to this section, and now that it's a ghost town I'm uncertain that I'll find any support. But writing this message will be theraputic for me so I hope sharing will help. I've had bad acne scars since I had a massive breakout when I turned 20 years old. It's the 10 year anniversary of the end of my life. I have some ice pick scars on my cheeks and to be completely honest, I would be able to live with those. BUT, I also have many ice picks scars in my
  2. Your friend makes fun of your appearance because he is insecure about his. Making fun of you makes him feel better about himself.
  3. MJ's acne was only one part of the problem. Michael suffered from the skin disease known as Vitiligo. Ignorance prevailed in the early 90's with members of the black community accusing him of bleaching his skin, claiming MJ wanted to be white. Anyone who knows what vitiligo is could understand a dark skinned individual's desire to be one color. Acne isn't shit compared to a disease like Vitiligo, and doesn't have a cure.

  4. If you could see that girl was gorgeous despite her acne, why can't another girl see beyond your acne and scars? Of course you are going to be super critical of your skin.

Time doesn't stop for anyone. It keeps going, and if we are lucky, one more day to take a risk and feel different about your life. Everyone should take more risks and continue to make mistakes. There is no reason to seek acceptance from every person on earth. All of us were given control over the direction of
  6. Picking pushes bacteria deeper into the skin and creates an infection. It's always tempting to pop a whitehead, but you're better off leaving it alone. BP will dry out the head and it will fall off in a couple of days.
  7. I'm sorry Accutane wasn't a long term solution to your problem. I wish there was one cure to get rid of stubborn acne. I am going on a strict elimination diet with daily exercise, and at least 15-30 minutes of relaxation to control my stress levels. I want to go backpacking in another country too. I would like to go in the summer. You should do it despite the condition of your skin. You don't want your skin to prevent you from experiencing life.
  8. Take a mirror to class and judge for yourself. Don't rely on us.
  9. Many acne sufferers have found jobs despite their skin problems. You are going to be fine. Everyone needs to make money. Except me. Because I am rich.
