Seems to me like most guys are either too afraid, or feel embarrassed to talk about the "A" word - Acne. Girls get together and talk about their skin care systems, for guys thats either considered gay or embarrassing. Theres nothing embarrassing about nice skin, so lets talk guys!!!
Acne effects so many teenagers, and I think that is something that needs to be talked about! I have personally had severe acne from about the ages of 15 - 17 on my face and back. I know only too well not only the Physical side effects of it, but also the emotional effects.
I want this to be a thread to be a gateway for people to talk about what has worked for them, what hasn't, and perhaps if you are willing, an intro on how it effects you?
I tried SO many different things ie Proactive, medicated face-washes, topical treatments.... The only thing that worked for me was a medication called roaccutane. It had HORRIBLE side effects, so i was only able to take it for a few months. It did however clear my acne
So come on guys and girls, Lets help each other out. Maybe someone has a natural alternative that is FANTASTIC that might help someone! ITS UP TO YOU!
