Adult acne message board chat

Basically, those of us who thought we had won, or at least gotten past, the acne battle. Even though I had acne into my late 20s, I thought I had it licked until about three years ago. The new acne combined with the scars and blemishes I still have from my younger days makes it very tough going to work and social events.I'm embarrased to see friends and family I haven't seen for a while. For those suffering from acne as adults, what are you doing, what have you done, and how do you cope? I think we can find a little comfort here with each other's help.When I initially started to break out with acne, I avoided my friends and family, took some time off of work and basically cried about it every day.

I can cover it with makeup and nobody knows I have it.

I have spent to much time letting acne control my life.

I also experienced teenage acne but it didn't seem to emotionally impact me as much as when I developed it again a year ago.

When I was a teenager, I still went to school and interacted with my friends.

I guess what was the most frustrating was trying all these different products, topicals, creams and other things recommended by my family, friends and doctor and nothing worked. I have come to the conclusion that the "beauty" industry just wants to make money and there is no real product out there that can "cure" acne.
