It's a beautiful day, I'm just hiding inside.



So to start off, I'm a 16 year old girl who has been struggling with acne for five years. I started breaking out when I was 11, and my acne was at it's worst when I was 13. After seeing a dermatologist, my skin drastically improved, but still had marks and random breakouts. After a while I stopped using the products my dermatologist gave me because they had stopped working, and at that point I decided I would rather just find something on my own. I also haven't seen my dermatologist in over a year. Recently my skin had been looking its best, and I was really hopeful, but then I started breaking out. My skin looks so bad right now, I have tiny white heads and bigger zits on my forehead and chin. It's Sunday, so I'm going to call my dermatologist tomorrow and try to get an appointment as soon as possible.

My best friend since 8th grade, who I haven't seen in weeks, is coming over today and she's going to sleep over. She's my best friend, and I know she won't judge me, but I feel so insecure with all these zits on my face. I'm not used to feeling like this, like I just want to hide inside until it all goes away.

I've always had a lot of self confidence, and still do. But days, and weeks, like these really test it.

I just wish I didn't have to deal with acne. I wish I was one of those people who can skip a few days of washing their face and still have clear skin. Nobody should have to go through this.
