I'm turning 34 in Febuary I've spent too much time in the sun and in tanning beds. I'm paying the price now I have fucked up skin. I have two really bad sunspots on my upper cheek close to my eyes.

I've tried hydroquinine and several other prescription meds nothing seems to work. I also get a lot of ingrown hairs. Its annoying I feel uncomfortable, self conscious. Looks have always been important too me.

Doctor said skin might be too dark for lazer. Anyone ever have sun spots treated successfully?

People who suffer really bad acne especially on the face I don't know how they make it through the day. When I get a bad break out I feel miserable.

Dude, it's called getting old.  Shit starts going South.  Get used to it.  I started getting sun spots in my mid 30's as well.  When you get older, you get to look forward to random skin tags and liver spots.   Cheesy

You always used to tout how you're a "real" man and here you are complaining about your skin.  Undecided Undecided Cheesy Cheesy Do you think people who fought in World War 2 complained about their skin?  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes I'm just bustin' your chops, like you bust mine.  Smiley Smiley

Broskie, I feel your pain. I don't have sunspots, but I was recently diagnosed with a very mild case of seborrheic dermatitis on my face. If Im stressed, I get small red patches on my face that become dry. Luckily, with medication and lotion, I have been able to manage it; however, I hate when I get a break out, even if its mild (every so often). Skin conditions are extremely common and there are pretty much no cures for any of the major skin conditions; its all about management.

You may just have to engage in some radical acceptance; you know, it is what it is.

My dermatologist urged me to put on sun screen whenever I leave the house for extended periods of time. So, Ive been doing that in order to avoid skin issues later on. As we age, we all begin to break down.  Undecided Undecided

I got the same shit off working outside most my life, when I worked indoors for a few years and skin faded there are a few patches on forehead and cheeks that never went back white, my plan is to spend more time in the sun, firstly because itís not as noticeable when tanned and secondly hopefully the rest will become damaged to match. Not an ideal solution but best I can think of that involves no effort

It's most likely stress related.

funny you should mention this. at work yesterday i encountered a young girl (25 or so) who had the most awful acne i've seen on someone that's not a teenager. i didn't know where to look... fortunately she had a bit of cleavage going on and the tits looked pretty perky. so all the time i was talking to her i just focused on her tits ....and that seemed to be lessen the horror of the acne.

i suggest you try and do the same do something to detract attention away from your face....

The skin damage you see now was done 10-20 years ago.  Sun exposure is not a good thing.  Simple observation confirms this.  Look at older people who were sun worshippers... the skin that was exposed to the sun all the time looks like an alligator and the skin that wasn't is baby smooth.  Take vitamin D pills instead.

Luckily I started wearing sunscreen almost everyday at about 25.

The high androgenic stuff you used or still do, doesn't help either.
