Made myself ugly

I made myself ugly by washing my face too much. I became obsessive compulsive about washing my face. I thought it would heal my acne but it just made it worse. I used Spectro Gel antiseptic cleanser because the drug store lady told me I had to kill bacteria on my face. I also used Neutrogena soap also, and Noxzema too. To top it off I would put rubbing alcohol right on my face because I thought my face was a breeding ground for bacteria. But what I regret most, is pulling hair out of my face because I thought it would help in some way. When I did it I was looking for some way to make a difference, but it just made it worse. This all happened when I was 14 years old. I'm 30 now and life hasn't been the same since. I hate my face. My skin is dry and visibly irritated and inflamed at all times. I also get unusual puss coming out of my pores whete my hair follicles used to be.

If I had just left it alone I could have had a different life. I locked myself into am emotional prison and I've been sad for 16 years. I don't think I will ever be happy again. I miss my life I had when I was 14 and will always regret what I did.

  • Now your 30. You know dwelling on the past kills anyone. We all have sad times and things in the past where we wish we'd done it differently. Think about right now. Just try living in the moment. Look around and find something nice. If it's sunny - like the weather. Find something in the view that nice - like a building or sign or mountain whatever.

    There are men with rough faces who make it in life.

  • There are treatments that can help with your condition, and probably cure it. But you can't do it on your own, or with OTC medications. Go to a dermatologist.

  • Washing your face too much reduces the oil from your skin and yes, dryness causes acne as well. My face is getting better because I know my limits. (:

  • It's best to touch your face the least amount as possible. Only wash it when the u shower or bathe ..that's what I found to work components in body wash..and a glove that is exfoliator...use super rich organic moisturizer and vitamin e oil mixed in with it or even that petroleum jelly.
