  1. So this halloween, i figured a costume that involved a mask would be best so that i don't have to wear makeup or feel too self conscious, boy was i wrong. I wore the mask to work because i work with kids so everyone dressed up. I wore the mask most of the day (i took breathing breaks) and i had a fairly good time scaring the kids and taking pictures. At night, we were having a halloween carnival at my job and i was assigned to do the lemonade stand with my crush at work WHAT THE FUCK. it
  2. I'm 21 years old and I had taken Minocycline for a while and heard if u take it too long u get grey spots and stuff so my skin was clear and I decided to come off it but then I got some pimples around my chin and didn't like it so I went to the derm and asked if I could try doxycycline (cause my brother takes it) and I took it for about 2 weeks and it broke me out so bad I was so upset! I had deep pimples that I couldn't cover up. I called my derm and said it didn't work for me and did the oppos
  3. ***(Update: Only not even 3 months of using this regimen!!!! 100% recommend these life changing products!)*** I found this forum and created an account just to vent because I am simply too utterly embarrassed to speak about my biggest insecurity to anyone face to face, I would just burst into tears seeing as I'm already ready eyed writing this. I'm 18 and I go through heartache on the daily trying to deal and cope with my moderate/severe acne and scars. It may seem like stupid thing to let con

    Need some motivation/positivity

    Hey everyone, I know this may seem pathetic, and by no means am I looking for any sympathy, I just need some motivational words/positive stories in regards to acne and self confidence. I have had terrible self esteem issues for a long time now and acne doesn’t help! I’m incredibly pale and every blemish looks terrible. Not only that but the scars and hyperpigmentation left behind don’t make it any better. Talking about having incredibly fair skin, I’m also “blessed” (sarc
  5. Hey all, I started the regimen about 2 months ago and was wondering what your experiences are with dating. I have this fear that I'll be making out with a guy and he'll smell the bp or something like that...or it'll kill your mood if he puts his hand on your face, and you're imagining all the bacteria getting on your face from his fingers. Do you ever feel that way guy/girl, same thing, how do you deal with that? And does the recipient actually smell the bp on your face, do t
  6. Wow I haven't posted here in ages! Anyway, so today I was at a restaurant and an awkward gentleman walked in wearing a surgical mask. I thought perhaps it was because of the air pollution. I proceeded to wait for my food that I ordered. He seemed very self-conscious. I noticed that he had severe acne on his face. I made small talk with him, and he wouldn't look me in the eye. I wondered to myself, "Is he wearing that because of his skin?" It didn't matter either way. I used to hide behind l
  7. I have been dealing with pretty awful acne for about a year now. It has not only been and emotional roller costar but also really stressful. And it hasn’t been just one kind of acne either. I go from almost like hives all over my face to thousands and hundreds of little bumps all over my face. And it’s awful. I’ve been to the fern and doctors and all of these different places and no one can tell me what’s wrong. Im slowly giving Up hope and wondering and pondering the question.... is it worth
  8. Alright so my name's Joaquin, Senior in high school, and I'm 17 years of age. I have suffered from acne ever since I was 11 years old. It's always been a struggle of mine for years. Especially during all the times in attending school. By Junior year of high school I started seeing a dermatologist for a while and he would give me pills/medications to take for my acne, but It just wouldn't do it, until I went on a light cycle of Accutane for about 5 months. I still was getting breakouts so I had t
  9. Hi all, I've spent the past few months reading through various posts on here and finally decided to make a post of my own reaching out. I've had moderate cystic acne since I turned 21 (24 now), and have had a hell of a time dealing with it. Recently I started a new skin care line that seems to be helping prevent new breakouts (great!) but I still suffer from old cysts that never healed around my chin and horrible red scars all over my face from my awful habit of picking. I've become so terribl
