  1. I'm 35 and still battling mild to moderate. I'm clear right now but it's only a matter of time before the next storm.
  2. I appreciate your responses. I'll just have to grin and bear it. Y'all make a good point it's worth the sacrifice. Thanks. Who cares about the way I look as long as my gf likes who I am, right?
  3. In the past week, I've gotten a couple of whiteheads around my chin. Nothing major, but they are annoying. I'm pretty sure it's caused by the lip-locking--and maybe her lipstick. Should I bring it up? I feel like I shouldn't, but then I'd been pretty much clear for two and a half months and don't want the shit coming back for good.
  4. My girlfriend and I were having dinner with my folks and bro, and my mom says to my gf, "He doesn't eat seafood because he's afraid it gives him acne." Nice.
  5. For what it's worth, I stopped using BP and SA cleansers two months ago, and my face has gotten much much better. I also realized, especially in the winter, that the really hot showers I enjoy was probably irritating my skin to hell, though it didn't feel irritated. So I started washing my hair separately with lukewarm water. While in the shower, I don't let the water touch my face, though I do know I'm still getting some through the steam.

In the winter, I like to take hot, I mean hot, showers. That way, my face is avoiding hot water and my "rebound" oil has been cut way down. I'll kneel by the tub for the hair-washing with lukewarm water, then do the rest of my shower. I've also stopped using SA wash when I wash my face--I just use lukewarm water. Usually, I'm le
  7. Stress certainly causes many of my breakouts. I can say only that during times of stress, take a break, leave the office, and go outside for a walk, even if you're on deadline. Work will just have to wait. And monitor your skin more carefully during those times.
  8. Ever wonder why moles are ok, but acne's not? I mean, moles are blemishes just like acne, only they're black.
  9. My breakout's ended, and I have no active lesions *at the moment* (and I stress that). I do have several stains left over. Am I happy? Well, yeah, since the company Christmas party is on Monday. Relieved? Yeah. But I'm also worried. The worry never ends.
  10. Check this out: I'm near-sighted too, so I never look in the mirror when I'm wearing glasses or contacts. How fucked up is that?
  11. Don't worry, I took Mon and Tues off, calling in sick because of this fucking acne.
