15 year old acne story..

okay so, when I was about thirteen and a half I started getting spots on my face, not like loads, but the odd few, this influenced me to start wearing makeup like my friends were doing as the 'trend' a this age, I started using dream mattee moussee however you spell it, basically because all of my friends were,
after using this is made me have more and more spots on my face which again caused me to be wearing more makeup as I was uncomfortable with my skin.
As I turned fourteen I began using more heavy makeup, my skin cleared up from the last year and I eventually had gotten clear skin, this lead me to be a bit cocky because my friends had began to go through the acne stage at this period whilst I remained with clear healthy looking skin. However, half way through this year I began getting spots on my back, which was the biggest nightmare EVER and still is to this day. I stopped wearing ANY clothing item which showed my back and covered up any spots with makeup (from the acne with began appearing on my face).. I still don't wear any revealing clothes to this day because I'm afraid and think the appearance of it is so so ugly.
At this age (15) the girls tend to go out on nights out wearing low cut tops and whatever, however I cannot do this because of the spots on my chest+back so I stick to wearing a top which doesn't show my chest and a cardigan if any back skin is being revealed. I have tried EVERYTHING to my my bacne go away, I haven't done PE for about 5 weeks because people will see my skin whilst getting changed and i'm afraid if i do get sweaty my acne will spread and I don't want that to happen. I shower twice daily and wash all of my makeup off when I get home from school or out.. I don't go out on weekends as much. I cry about it all of the time. I've cut down on fatty foods and drink litres of water everyday. I walk around in a boob tube or a strap top without the straps when I get home from school and don't wear a bra so my spots can breathe and clear up as much as they can before the next day. I HATE acne, and I hate how its affecting things that I do and narrowing my options. I'm going on holiday next week and i'm not even considering wearing a bikini due to my back being on display. I hate it!!! and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, its the most uncomfortable horrible thing ever and I just want it to go,, now.
