I too am thin and have acne. I'm 30 years old and I've had it, (and have been thin all my life), since I was a teenager. I have the moderate/severe end of acne, which sucks. I have never seen clear skin, without a single breakout, on my face since my young adult life. I am so use to it now that it just wouldn't be 'normal' if I didn't have zits. I don't let my kids or anyone for that fact, touch my face. I wash it and take care of it religiously though. Nothing has worked for me, and I finally decided that I do indeed need professional help for it. Now the kind of acne I have isn't covering my whole face, but I will have between 1-3 severe cysts on my cheeks, one side or the other, and sometimes both, and my chin is a happenin' spot for pimples as well. Now that I'm 30, my acne is now spreading along my jaw line and onto my neck alittle bit. I do have oily skin and I've got to wash it throughout the day a few times, so it's not like I don't try to get rid of it, I just can't get rid of it. I've been on medication, washing with a prescribed facial wash, and using a medicated application for the surface of my face now for alittle over a month. I have even gotten a chemical peel done as well. I still am breaking out, and because I'm 30, yes I do have some scarring from it. My Derm. said that this is normal right now. So I'm hoping for some great results in about a month or so. I'm a patient person and like I said this acne is nothing new to me, but just knowing that I'm on my way to dimishing it is a relief to me. .....so let's see, I'm working on my acne, I've gotten my teeth straightened (on the top), I'd like to get my nose done, I just feel like a mess, but yet I'm not an ugly person. I just need to tweek some things! :) I apologize for the long reply, but I'm glad I going to post this, because I'm sure there's someone out there who relates to me. Thanks.

Thanks for contributing that post. I know what you mean about the tweaking; I'm going to get mine (nose) done too. Good luck.
