“I used to get really bad acne in high school. It was not a pleasant experience for me.”
“There was this girl from back then who came up to and said: ‘You should go to the doctors and get that checked out.’”
“And so I did end up going to doctors eventually. I mean, even if the girl didn’t say anything I’m pretty sure my mum would have anyway.”
“Meanwhile, my dad thought it was because I ate too much lobster. That didn’t sound very plausible to me.”
“Still, that comment hurt. I was sad, embarrassed and quite upset.”
“Anyway, I went to the doctor’s and she provide me with a medicated cream.”
“I relied on it a lot. I started out using it everyday and night for a couple of years.”
“When I stopped using it, I continued to get breakouts.”
“It’s not as bad now. It gets oily during the day but I don’t really know what to do with that.”
