Not long ago I was out shopping with my mom. Department stores where it live are filled with young girls who just follow you around. I went into one and the girl that chose to follow us called me aside and asked me what she should use on her acne. Now she had really small inflammatory lesions on her face, no marks or scars. She said "I started getting these things on my face lately. You know what causes it? Is it AIDS?
The first thing I thought was that there must be other people walking around looking at me thinking what's making me break out is AIDS before I even though "wow, this girl's so stupid."
So now not only is my skin bad because I eat too much sugar/salt/oil/soda/fries and never wash my face but it's also bad because I have AIDS. **** ** **** **** ****
I know people will generally look at someone in my society who has bad skin and assume their unhealthy but this was new to me. Now I have another reason to be ashamed of how I look.
