I never had acne when I was a teenager. I’d get the odd pimple now and again, you know, hormonal type spots, but I never had acne. Every picture that still exists of me from when I was a teenager, if you look back I had picture perfect, clear skin.
So it only makes sense that now that I am 30 years old, my face is covered in acne.
Honestly. Spots. Everywhere.
I can’t get rid of the damn things from my face, no matter what I do.
It’s awful because I get this insecure feeling about my face… like I shouldn’t go out in public. And that’s so silly, because no one cares about someone having acne, especially a total stranger. I just feel as though I’m not putting my best face forward, and if I’m not putting my best face forward, people won’t see past that and see the real me.
I realize these are first world problems. But oh my. Can the skin fairy come and please tell me what is causing this? Because I’ve researched everything online and no matter what I do, it only seems like I’m poking the monster and making it worse.
Honestly, part of me thinks some of it might be genetics. I remember when I was young, my mom struggled with acne.
Anyways, my rant is over now.
