  1. So where do I start? Hopefully not with the whole puberty talk but just the acne problem that comes with it should do (chuckle). When I was in grade 5 about 11 I got my first zit on my nose. I didn't know until then but that was a pustule where there was a red inflamed look to it. Of course no one in my class was use to it so they called me rudoph the red nose reindeer. Kids can be cruel right? Well needless to say, I just brushed it off until I started middle school in grade 6. That's when my s
  2. I used to have severe breakouts about two years ago. I radically changed my diet and began working out, and I was happy and healthy and got rid of my acne. All of last year, my skin was clear. It felt amazing. At the end of summer 2013, I began noticing little breakouts. I thought they would go away. I wasn't eating very healthy and I was drinking though. When school started, I became more and more stressed and worked out less and less. I began breaking out, my skin began spiraling out of con
  3. As a teenager I experienced a small pimple here and there, never anything cystic and never anything I would describe as acne. It wasn't until I turned 23 that my skin began having issues. I returned home from a family vacation with a pretty bad breakout. I tried over the counter products for a couple of months before I decided the breakout wasn't going away. I made an appointment with a dermatologist who took one look at my face (not a very close look) and told me that I had adult acne. Because
  4. Hi there, I'm a 19 year old college freshman struggling with acne issues. If you could please listen to my story and offer ideas, I'd appreciate it SO much. It probably makes most sense to start at the beginning. I always had amazingly clear skin when I was younger. Even through puberty, which began early for me, I hardly broke out other than the occasional stray zit. It was when I was 15 and I started struggling with mental health issues that everything went downhill. I tried literally over
  5. I decided I wanted to tell people about my experience with differin so I figured I would start a blog on here! Background on my skin, I started getting acne when I was in 6th grade, never severe but pretty moderate. Then my freshman year I decided to go on birth control to see if it would help, and it did a little bit but not much. During my sophomore year i found out I have sensitive skin that reacts badly to benzoyl peroxide, harsh face scrubs, and some other random things. Lucky me, right? At
  6. And here it is again, that devastating feeling all over again. Acne… Once again I am literally feeling like the worst piece of crap on the entire planet. Like wtf man? Why does it seem like I’m the only guy who is suffering from this skin disease? I mean I know there are many people out there who undergo bad acne as well, but what? Why does it seem like I’m the only one going through this feeling like a piece of worthless junk? Almost everybody I see everyday, be it at the subway, on
  7. I've decided to share my acne story on here because I finally do not feel alone. There are so many other people going through the same thing and I want to get this off my chest. Being a teenager in Highschool and having acne is not exciting. People judge you on every single flaw and your confidence goes down. The way you look at yourself is different. I've suffered from acne for a year now and I want to say that everyday is a struggle. I have mild to moderate acne ALL over my face ( not exaggera
  8. I have lately been watching videos on Youtube , about people telling their stories about acne. I was surprised to find someone as positive as the girl on this video. I feel identified with her because I am being bulled at school and that makes me feel so sad. We are not monsters, we are not "pizza face" . We are just normal people trying to fight against our skin condition. I love her speech http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZJqBs5HzIA
  9. So, I'm 18 years old and I have been struggling with acne for about 10 years. I know it's weird to think about a 4th grader having acne, but that's the earliest I remember having it because a kid in my class had called me "pimple face". This isn't really a post to tell you guys how I cured my acne, because I still struggle with it to this day and I still have acne. I guess what I want to say is just that I truly understand the struggle and that you're not alone. To begin with, you should know
  10. Hi everyone, This is the first time I am writing anything, anywhere on the net. Let me begin my story. I have had acne since I was 14 years old and I am 26 now. One to two year having acne which turned moderate from mild I went to a derm. Obviously nothing worked for me, no medication, no cleansers, no moisturisers, nothing. I had back acne too for couple of months. Do you know what happened to the back acne? It cleared completely. How? Cause I did not have tme to care for it as it did not show
  11. I was following the paleo diet (no grains, sugar, dairy, or beans and focusing on fruits, veggies, nuts, fish, lean meat, etc.) and it was not only helping my body but also my skin. It looked a lot firmer, healthier, and had more life to it. And no breakouts in sight. A month into my diet, I got sick... very sick. I won't go into the nitty gritty details but I ended up in the hospital needed fluids due to dehydration and also just double checking that it wasn't anything serious. I have never bee
  12. So I've always had almost perfect clear skin as a kid and even as an early teen, even while always having oily skin. However, as I got older I started noticing small breakouts, but not many. They usually went away rather quicker and left little to no marks on my face. Around age 15-16 my face became REALLY oily and I started developing blackheads, but they were barely noticeable. However, recently, now aged 17, my acne has been getting really bad and bothersome. Sometimes it calms down, an
  13. It's my first post! I have read a lot of stories here. Some are sad, some are hopeful. But no matter how you look today, all I want to say is you're beautiful. All of us are beautiful creations and soul and nobody's ugly. It's all in your mind. Let me tell my maybe, 10 year battle with acne until now, and I'm hopeful the battle will be over soon. When I was a child, my mom told me everyone kept telling me how I looked so cute and like a kid with a foreign blood (I looked white.) I starte
