SAmuri Pizza FAce! I'm 32 and still getting pimples..agh!!!!

When I was about 14 or so there was a cartoon on ABC (I think) called Samuri Pizza Cats. It was about cats who knew karate and would use it to save the day. They also ate Pizza alot, kinda like Ninja Turtles I suppose. But the theme song was rather catchy and me and my older brother and younger sister would sing this song all the time and one day when our older sister was being particularly mean, my brother called out to her, " Samuri Pizza FAce"! This hit her hard because she had pimples in a pretty bad way ( I did too but it was my sister on the receiving end, so I was happy!!) as most teenagers do. From then on it was the nasty catch phrase so to speak of our family and as we all had pimples at some point in our teens we would yell it out to each other when we wanted to hurt the other persons feelings, I know it sounds bad but being 1 of 5 kids it happened!
Anyway, the reason why I bring it up today is because I am now 32 and I still get these stinkin pimples! I can't stand getting them. They look so gross and I feel like I should have got over the getting pimples a good 10 years ago, at least! The only time I have really great skin is when I am pregnant. So whatever hormones I am producing then is what keeps me clean and clear and I loved it!!  But as much as I love my kids, I am not so desperate that I feel like getting pregnant again to have clear skin, i don't want it that bad!!!  I did try Proactiv and that actually did work for me but it costs quite a bit to maintain that routine. I am currently using Neutrogena Cleansing Foam. It isn't doing a good job at all. I still use it, in vain I think because I spent money on it and I don't want it to go to waist.I think my other problem is I can't resist not squeezing my pimples. I don't squeeze all of them, but it they have a white head, it has to go. I can't stand seeing a white headed pimple on my face, I think its gross, so I can only assume others would too. So naturally for the ones that I do squeeze I get a scab and then its the scab that is just as obvious. So its the vicious cycle that I thought as a teenager would leave me be when I hit my twenties. Maybe its stress? I'm a wife, have 4 kids, work part time and tend to a house hold. I think that's a good reason. But how to combat that? Maybe I should just suck it up and get the Proactiv again. Yes, it is pricey but if it clears up my skin, then I know I will feel better about 'me'. Any of my hundreds of loyal readers out there have any suggestions?? Anyone??

Boy, I crack me up!!!

  1. I'm 25 and am still being visited daily with these little charmers who call 'emselves Pimp...les.

    I do not know how to get rid of 'em. But I think maybe if I can get pregnant then my skin will start clearing up! Sounds great. Now where do I get a guy?

    Try Proactiv, it might help.
