i started getting pimples when i was twelve, which was when my wonderful world of puberty began. it started off very mild, and then got progressively worse. i wish i had found this site arnd that time because the regimen worked wonders for me. acne can def make you more self-conscious, and care more about your overall appearance. i was care free, and studious before i started breaking out. i think getting acne when you're a teenager makes it even more perplexing, and traumatizing because of all the changes you are already going through. i also have critical parents with specific ideas about beauty, and how a woman should behave, or appear. i think my acne journey would have been less stressful, and lonely if i didn't feel like i was disappointing them, along with disappointing myself.

 

anyway, i do feel stronger because of acne, but i say this time and time again...i wish i was stronger because of other situations, or experiences other than struggling for so long with my skin.


natural is beautiful. but glamour is fun.

My acne got really bad when I was a junior, I was 15 that time. It killed me inside every time I looked in the mirror and I saw the ugly me. I cried almost every night thinking that if I never had acne, I'd be a totally different person. A much better person. I didn't have a lot of friends back then and preferred staying home. I was never able to look people directly in the eye especially girls since I was so insecure. Damn I wish I could go back. Fortunately for me, my acne's a lot better. Thank god I found my solution.

I've thought about what I would be like if I had never had acne. I would definitely be different. But I think I would have turned out to be one of those high and mighty know-it-alls who thinks acne can be cured by washing twice a day and using a little topical cream once a week. I don't know that I would appreciate all the little victories in life or have as much compassion for humankind. i don't think that I would understand that what is a big deal to one person is nothing to someone else. Oh, there are good people out there who have never suffered with acne, I'm just talking about me personally.

 

It probably wouldn't be the case for me. I care about other people just as much when I didn't have acne. Acne really changed my perspective about myself. One of the good things about going through rough times is learning to appreciate what you have and going through all that actually made me realize quite a few things. But it doesn't change the fact that I felt like shit all those years.
