  1. Stay strong. Remember this drug will give you dark thoughts and dark days. It might take 6 months, it might take longer. Practice self care (ice packs on the face and binge watching your favorite shows helps). Treat yourself like the victim of a fire who is badly burned. Give yourself permission to wallow, but also practice radical self-love.

So many experts out there and mixed messages and pollutants in our water and food--who knows wha
  5. Sending you a hug. I have an 18-year-old son going through a rough time with acne and it sucks. It takes courage to face the world when you just want to hunker down and hide. Be kind to yourself and know that you can do everything right and sometimes the acne gods are totally unfair.
