Another Zit?!?!

growing up, i saw many a tv show where a girl would get a pimple and completely freak out over it. i always thought it was so silly...until my 16th birthday. that very day, i woke up with a huge zit smack in the middle of my forehead, and it decided to start a whole family on my face! over the next few years, i had constant breakouts. i know my acne wasn't as bad as some people get it, but it did make me extremely self-conscious. i'd go through the work of covering them all in the morning before school, and by midday i'd look in the mirror and see three new ones had popped up. the worst time was when this guy told me i had a smudge on my chin. i'm wiping my chin with my hand and he's like, "no, a little more that way," and then finally he leans closer and says, "oh sorry, it's just a pimple!" seems like an innocent mistake, but if there was ever a time when i wanted to die it was right then!

my skin has cleared up quite a bit over the past year or so. i still get mini breakouts at times, but they've calmed down, thankfully. i don't have deep acne scarring, although there are a few little dark spots on my skin in places where i got the heaviest breakouts, but they're nothing a little makeup can't cover. acne is truly a pain, and i feel for anyone who's going through it.

One of the major causes of pimples, acne and/or blemishes is dead skin not removed from the area, namley the face. The best thing for this is a scrub or something to remove this obviously.<br />
