  1. it's like this. acne is just one more condition people live with. everyone has something they're insecure about. in our case its acne, and we cannot hide it because our appearance shows it.

    I personally believe it is okay to feel like shit if you must, but you also gotta be able to forgive your self and accept your self. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. this was just the way life presented itself, not just for acne, but for all the things that happen to you everyday.

    Acne, it really is annoying, beyond hell for some of us. but if there is no one to blame, why chastise yourself so much? you're a good human being, you deserve to be happy, or at least to try to be happy. for yourself, because you're worth it.

    take care.

  2. To keep us humble?

    I am always being told I could model, I should model etc (except for the fact that I'm a shortie!) and I know if I didn't have breakouts I'd probably have an inflated ego :P Therefore, acne keeps me humble!

    Not the most humble post I've ever seen, I'm not going to lie.


  3. The first time I looked (myself) at the mirror after smoking some weed and being at the worst stage of my acne I thought to myself "damn, this is how i look to others?" In a way, it was pretty bad, but in another way It wasn't really that bad. It's hard to explain but I thought "If this is me, i forgive myself, and i accept myself".

    Sometimes you need that insight to come in terms with the condition. and learn to live with it in the hopes that one day it'll leave you to never come back.

  4. I'd be pretty pissed if I did that for six months before I realized it was all in vain.

    That's why you gotta do it from the heart, for the sake of living a healthier life, not just for the results. like when you befriend a girl just to get with her, not because of an honest friendship, if in the end you don't get the girl, you're like "fuck all in vain".

    the same applies here, do it not only for your acne, but for your liver, weight, heart, and more.

  5. ... but hopefully he won't try and kiss me.

    girl, what you mean "hopefully he won't try and kiss me"? That's the best part of the date! seriously, if he agreed to go out on a date with you it probably means he already likes you no matter what.

    i personally like my girls with acne, i can relate to them more, but then again i like em in all forms and shapes, i love women :P

    good luck!

  6. In your tips I feel like #1 refers to me LOL. I'm a newb to putting on makeup so I may look like shit...

    I was once called out by my lady friend. At the time, i used to wear an acne treatment cream that was also a cover up (the cream was brown). We were hanging out and she said "are you wearing make up!?" and i said "Noooooooooo, are you crazy!?" lol.

  7. I want to assume that most of you are on a diet, but lets be honest, there is some of you (and you know who you are) who insist still in eating garbage.

    i know for a fact there is people out here who claim to be "eating healthy" but don't. instead, they end up sabotaging themselves in a moment of weakness because "this doesnt seem to be working anyways".

    i know, i've been there. i threw the towel several times out of resignation. then one day i grew strong, and stayed strict on my diet no matter the consequenses.

    only after 6 months, SIX MONTHS!, of eating properly religously i started to see little results. i assume it took my body that long to finally make my face look healthier.

    in a scale of 1 to 10, i used to be 8 acne and 5 scar. now, after a year, i'm 3 acne and 3 scar. you may claim that that ain't good enough, but if you really want to get out of this hell, you know that's a hell of a number and an accomplishment as well.

    you too can do it, but you need stop making "xmas exceptions" "im depressed exceptions" and so on. it's never too late to start. IT TOOK ME 6 MONTHS TO START SEEING RESULTS, 6 MONTHS!

    Stop eating garbage. stop eating fritos, cheetos and chips at all. stop eating fried shit. NOT FRIED. Nothing fried. nothing that had any contact with fried oil. NO MCDONALDS. NO FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS AND DRINK TONS OF WATER, TONS!

    do that, and a personal diet of your own and i can assure you that you will look better sooner or later.

    dont ever lose hope, you friend always,


    (edited: not eating red meat and pork. Everything else is still the life style i practiced for a whole year, until just recently when little by little i came back to eating red meats, pork, and other fried meats cooked only at home (where i know the oil used is fresh). MCDONALS AND OTHER FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS STILL A NO NO AND IM YET TO EAT A FUCKING CHEESEBURGER AGGAIN.

  8. No man it helped me. When i first started this acne shit i really thought i was all by myself. only after reading so many other people venting i realize that i am not alone.

    i've never been depressed over other's people problems but rather feel sympathy for them for going through the same shit that i'm going through.

  9. You want to criticize my thread. Yet you make this pointless almost trolling like thread? I will no bite to your replies.

    trolling? haha, how am i trolling? anyways, i didn't critize your thread, the thread was fine, it was your negative way of thinking that i thought needed a slap in the face. either way i already apologized for going harsh on you, hope you didn't take it too hard.

  10. Your last paragraph brought tears to my eyes. I know it is true what you say because every time I look in the mirror I am reminded of how completely awful I look. On the contrary, when I am away from the mirror for awhile I start to think about more important things and I start talking to people like a normal person instead of shying away from them. This is going to be kind of weird to say, but I kind of wish we were all vampires so we would not have a reflection to constantly criticize.

    Enlightment at last. thumps up to the OP as well. You see, i saw this post long time ago when i used to be depressed and way more immature. I didn't believe it. Now, that i can finally see things more clear, it finally makes sense.

    I hope everybody can come in terms with what really matters before they waste more years of their lives living in darkness. i really hope for a brighter future for everyone, because we all deserve to be happy.


  11. I have a crush on a cute girl with great skin. She'll probably never like me because of my horrible acne scars.

    Fail statement.

    I think most acne suffers are just as shallow as people with flawless skin.

    Of course we are, having acne or not has nothing to do with being shallow.

    I personally believe its in our DNA to be attracted to good looking people, probably because we see they have good genes. We want to pass those good genes down to our kids.

    Are you serious?, if we want to talk evolutionary theory then let's make clear that "magazine attractive" is not by any means a primary mode of survival. I would rather have a healthy child than a pretty one with heart disease.

    I understand confidence and acceptance of your self can attract girls, but you have to be close to them constantly. If you only see them once a week for a few minutes, she will never be attracted to you. (Unless you were good looking)

    Well of course she's not if you never make the effort to get to know her for more than "just a few minutes"; if you're scared of being rejected then that's a different issue, don't blame it on them for not having the balls to approach.

    I know this from experience.

    I doubt it.

    You have to be forced into hanging out with a group of people like a in class room for your personality/confidence to shine. Other then that I don't see how any attractive girl would want to talk to me for a minute or more.

    so you're basically just concerned in shinning in front of others (to impress) rather than all the time to stay true to your self?

    i honestly don't see how you can accomplish anything with this type of thinking, then again, perhaps you don't even want to accomplish anything; whatever it is is that you're trying to do, good luck man.
