  1. Hey beautiful people, Hope you are all doing well. <3 I am new to this community, and a little lost on where to start from. I had plans to join a support group for this since forever, but for some reason, couldn’t muster enough courage to. I am battling acne for five years now, and it keeps fluctuating. I’ve tried different dermatologists, and they help to some extent, but my acne keeps coming back. Weirdly enough, it has affected me more than anyone would exp
  2. Hello. I am new to this community, but I wanted to speak to people in the same position as me. None of my close friends have moderate acne like me so I feel all alone. My first breakout was when I turned thirteen years old, and it hasn't stopped since then (I am now 22 years old). Back in grade 11 I started using Benzaclin and Differin prescribed by my dermatologist and my pimples decreased drastically. However, I still get frequent breakouts, especially around my period, not to mention all the
  3. So I don't know if any of you guys get this, but I get these insecurity attacks where I just want to hide myself. It's usually when I feel a breakout coming on. At first I didn't realize what caused it, I thought it was just like if I looked in a mirror recently, but no. Like, I'll be downtown somewhere and then I'll just become so insecure. Like I don't have the greatest confidence usually, but I'd consider it pretty high considering my acne. But when I'm getting a breakout, I just want to

    My Acne Story

    I've been an avid reader of acne.org post ever since I was in highschool. When I first got my acne, I was 11 but it was just tiny whiteheads with no more than 2 pimples on my forehead. When I started wearing makeup (take note it was mineral makeup) during my senior year, my still was still the same (white heads with occasional pimples on forehead but never on my cheeks) But when I entered university last 2012, 4 mos after my whole face exploded even my cheeks where i never broke out. They're not
  5. I've had acne since I was 12 and I'm turning 15 in a month and a sophomore in high school. Back then I didn't mind my acne much and just used whatever acne washes and moisturizers I saw on the drugstore shelves, which is probably why I have so much now. Walking around school and sitting in classrooms and seeing everyone with such perfect skin brings my self-esteem down alot. Some nights when I'm feeling more down than usual, I'd think of suicidal thoughts, but I'd just push it out of my mind, te
  6. It's my second month on accutane. The blackheads are gone. No more pimples. No more oily skin. But that's not enough. My problem isn't pimples anymore. It's the red marks they left. They didn't leave scars, just red marks. But I'm not sure that red marks will fade away. They're so red and they seem to stay, maybe because I stare in the mirror for too long, or maybe because they're not going to leave. Another problem is, when my face started peeling, I didn't care much as I knew
  7. What is the first thing I do every morning? I leap out of bed, often stumbling into an object due to miscalculation, and jog as swiftly as possible into the bathroom to the right of my room. I kick the door open, slide in, turn on the light, and look at my face. I count how many pimples I have and compare that to how many I had the day previous. If I have more pimples than the day previous, then the day will be absolute shit. If I have less pimples than the day precious the day will still be abs
  8. Saw this quote in a magazine while waiting for the doctor - "There is no single disease which causes more psychic trauma, more maladjustment, more general insecurity and feelings of inferiority and greater sums of psychic suffering than does acne vulgaris." -- Sulzberger & Zaldems Truer words have never been spoken. This sums up my life!
