My 13th year was hard, in fact of all my “teen” years I think 13 was the worst. In that 13th year I started high school, learned to shave my legs, had a cast from my hip to my ankle for 6 weeks & had my first taste of puberty. There were bras and change rooms and PE theory (what?!), BO (not mine, A to the men), class rotations and sex ed to conquer. It was chaos and I hated it.
Of all the crap that 13 dumped on my head, acne was the worst. Gone were the days of my porcelain , tiny freckle kissed skin and here were the days of pimples, zits and the odd BOIL in the center of my forehead (I’m totally not exaggerating). It was horrible, traumatic and looking back I hate the pictures. We tried all sorts of face washes and creams, prescriptions & trips to the dermatologist. Nothing worked, and I clung to the fact that one day I would “grow up” and the pubescent acne of my teenage years would be only a distant memory.
The thing is, that never happened. As the teenage years flowed into the twenty somethings my acne matured right along with the rest of me. While the rash like acne of those early years was no longer a problem there was the stress induced acne of my early twenties and the bright red acne patches of my pregnancies. I keep waiting for the day, I can say I’m acne free…it’s yet to arrive.
15 years later I’m still struggling with acne and I’m hoping I’ve now embarked on a journey to win the battle once and for all.
