For me, one of the worst parts of suffering from adult acne (moderate and sometimes, pretty darn gnarly) is the anxiety and pain associated with low self-esteem. I NEVER leave the house without makeup, and have a minor panic attack when camping, traveling, or sleep-overs are involved in my plans (how will I wash my face? Will people see me without my makeup? I'll have to get up at 5 am to get ready, just so no one will see my bare skin...). I also model, and you can imagine how hard it is to see photos where my acne is clearly showing through. This may sound sort of stupid, but it helps me to know that there are MANY celebrities and models who constantly battle acne, and are STILL successful (take a look at these pics): https://www.dermeffacefx7.com/info/10-gorgeous-celebrities-you-didnt-know-have-acne/
It's easy to forget that most (if not ALL) of the photos we see of models, stars, etc. are Photoshop effected - my pictures included.
Remember to not hold yourself back from doing things because of your acne - I waited years to be 100% clear so that I could finally pursue my interests (to no avail), and finally said 'f*$K it!'
