Okay, if you model, you cannot be ugly. I would never be able to model on my best days. My daughter, very much unlike her mom, is one of the most gorgeous people you'd ever lay your eyes on, at the moment she has acne really bad, she will not listen to me and take care of her face right, but I would take her looks and all of her acne anyday over what I look like. And I really hate acne.

One thing I can see your likely doing WRONG is a tanning bed. That facial tanner on that tanning bed will break your face out something HORRIBLE. If you have acne that bad, then stop using a tanning bed.

I have had acne really bad since I was a child. I get impetigo from it and it gets really nasty looking. I have been able to completely get rid of my acne with proactiv. I used other treatments even more expensive and it just made my acne worse. The proactiv took a little while before the breakouts completely stopped but in the end it was so worth using (I had whiteheads/blackheads/& pimples). I always make sure that I only wear makeup when I am out in public and as soon as I get home, I wash all of that off. Caffeine & chocolate are two things that will break my face out something horrible and I completely avoid that. I also do not use any moisturizers on my face or anything that might trigger the acne. I always make sure my foundation I wear is oil free. And I will not allow myself to get to the point that I am sweating.

I wish I could show you a picture of what I once looked like and what I look like now. The difference is unreal.

You can overcome this problem. But you have to find something that works to control your acne and stick with it. And try to avoid anything that might make it worse. Icecream/chocolate/pizza/sugar/caffeine/etc... Not GOOD.

Have you ever had your hormones checked for an imbalance? If you have hair growth that bad, it could be a problem.

Come on now, are you telling us you cannot live your life "Happy" without a man in your life. If I felt that way, I'd of done shot myself 10 years ago. Not that finding my soulmate isn't important to me, but thinking you can't survive life without them, I would really hate to be in your shoes right now.

Your self confidence is way tooooooooooooooooooooooo low. Even if you did get into a relationship, it may not work out well because of that. You cannot go through life having such a low opinion of yourself. Before you go out there and try to care for somebody else, you really need to learn how to care about yourself first.
Thanks for your response. I do not tan my face... and I do model, but I have good features with bad skin, if my skin wasn't so awful I wouldn't have low self confidence or esteem, however I do and like I said, thank goodness there is a thing called lighting, make up, hair and photoshop. So don't judge me because of what my job is, that doesn't make me any less sensitive.. I still get called names and teased by haters, did you not read my full post? And yes I can live w/o a man, but it would be nice to have company w/o it only being at night and someone that doesn't hate the site of me in daylight. I have huge holes and craters in my face with active acne. I also mentioned that I am broke - probably cos I'm too ugly and old to get modeling jobs as much anymore and I don't have health insurance, so I wouldnt be able to go to a doctor or dermo... so yeah, alternative therapies would be a must right now.
