And what are your opinions on acne if you were to see a person having one?
I don't really have an opinion on people with acne. It's a normal biological process, especially amongst teenagers, and doesn't reflect who the person is. If I were to see an adult with acne, I might for a moment think that it's uncommon to see acne in someone out of their teens, but that would be a purely observational thought.

I used to have acne and I tried all kinds of stuff to get rid of it but it only made it worse so one day I decided not to think about it anymore so I got rid of my mirrors and that's how I got rid of it quickly.
I have one friend who has pretty strong acne and it bothers him and he puts all kinds of chemicals in his face and I told him to do what I did but he didn't listen. I don't care about it though because I don't care what my friends look like.

I've had moderate acne all my life, and will continue to have it until I eventually go through menopause (ugh don't want to contemplate that) because the acne is a side effect of an inherited condition I have. But yeah, pretty much the same as Froop and LennyLen, I don't care about it; I could cover it up pretty well with makeup if I wanted to bother, but I don't. I've occasionally dated guys who had acne, or shaving rash, or rosacea, or psoriasis, or stretch marks (no, not on their face) and I even have a friend who has vitiligo. Yeah perfect glowing milk-and-strawberries skin is beautiful (or perfect glowing blue-black skin, or coffee-and-cream, or vivid, classy tattoos), but skin isn't at the top of my list of important parts of one's appearance. The only time acne actually grosses me out is if someone has a monster whitehead that looks like it's going to explode any minute, because they neglected to drain it so it could start to heal.
I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me. I also love pet-breeding games.

I don't get much acne, but I do have chronic eczema. For the most part people don't talk about it, but there is the occasional "Smart-Alec" that tries to tell me to put some lotion on it or stop scratching or something.....that get's me aggravated. For the most part, when somebody has acne or eczema or some other skin condition, don't tell them about it, because they are usually pretty aware of it.

I got some, and I guess it affects your life as much as you care about it. Some things that have helped me:
1. Never wash your skin with cream/bar soap, use liquid soap instead.
2. Wash your skin before going to sleep.
3. Don't touch your skin.
4. Don't eat/drink fatty or sugared food.
Also humectant creams after washing seem to help the skin healing faster.

My back could tell you. Though it is not terrble that much. I have seen my friend having much richer one but he got rid of it after puberty completely, but I didn't. I am still planing to hit an imunologist to extract antidote for the bacteries I cannot fight on my back. I used to have sort of the thing in my hair, but after Vichy shampoo and Node G I got rid of it.

Never had acne, even as a teen I had fairly clear skin, I did get the odd spot in stupid places.
Personally the best way to clear skin is working out hardcore or at least enough to sweat, I haven't looked into it but my face after exfoliating is no where near as good as my face (or body) after showering from a workout. I should also mention that I am a vegetarian, drink only water / green tea and avoid grain as much as possible, so that could help.
I also moisturise with olive oil, it requires A LOT of maintenance to work correctly as you will break out with spots if you use it like moisturiser but it is at least for me far more effective at keeping me smooth, clear and hydrated than any cosmetic, it just requires more effort to manage

I also tried olive oil....personally it only moisturized my skin for about 10 minutes and then I was dry again, the same with most creams too. Really the only stuff that works for hours on end is ointments like Aquaphor and Vasaline.
