Hey folks! Long time no see~!
Something I've noticed is really starting to bother me and I'm curious if you noticed it as well. This epidemic- well its probably existed for quite a while- of people who ask the same question when your bad skin is brought up: "Do you wash your face?" but that isn't as bad as the "God just take care of your skin!" -.-
There seems to be this negative connotation that people with acne have not done anything to prevent or cure their acne. And nothing bites at me more than someone saying even a hint of the above phrases. I've tried multiple things since I was ten to get beautiful skin so this detached view that I'm lazy and don't take care of my skin is above bothersome. Yes of course I WASH my face! I haven't been searching for help for six years only to discover now that washing my face is the answer.
Most of the time it comes from people who seemingly don't have that bad of skin problems. This of course is even worse. Or they are the girls/boys in the commercials who "break out" with a dot against pure ivory skin. ( Oh the joys of false advertisement )
Anyway, I'm becoming really sensitive to this kind of topic since its just so aggravating to have years of struggle doubted by someone who most likely hasn't had the same experience.
Thanks for reading
