Damn, I forgot to keep tabs on my blog..
My skin has been doing pretty great lately! I was skeptical and worried out of my mind that the stress during exam time would get to me and cause me to break out like it always have ever since I got acne. This year because I'm on birth control pills, I haven't broken out from exam stress at all! I really should've been on these pills sooner but I was living with my parents at that time and I'm sure they would not have agreed to get me a prescription. I remember the little mountains, craters and bumps all along my forehead, chin and cheeks. I have photos of me during that time and when I look back on them, I feel so broken to see that same girl looking back at me with sadness and low self-esteem. I hate feeling like that about myself.
Lately I've been thinking about the number of minutes in my life I've spent away because of acne i.e. depression, unable to concentrate on my studies, being antisocial because I can see people focusing on face instead of what I'm saying and the time spent on my skin care routine, finding products, popping pimples, etc. Other people would just have to wash their face and perhaps just apply a moisturizer, spending all of 15 minutes. I've spent so much of my life after turning 16 years old focused just on my face. What a waste of life, ya know? ..
