My adolescent years were spent trying to hide my hideous breakouts. I tried everything, the creams, the ointments, the scrubs and just about every other snake oil “solution” you could find. I suffered embarrassment and my self esteem took a major blow that up to this very day it hasn’t fully recovered.
Thankfully through my twenties, my acne was basically a thing of the past. YAY! Just when I was starting to feel good about myself again it happened. A huge golf ball sized pimple that had its own time zones, I swear. This was bad enough but I had a flippin date the next day. ARGHHH. Believe me she noticed! I can’t even remember her name if that helps you understand how things went.
I had no idea that breakouts were something a grown ass man would have to deal with but, hey you learn something new everyday. Thankfully there has been progress in controlling acne. The problem is that there are too many adult acne treatments which makes finding the right one a pain in the arse. Anyway, I’m still looking for the right one because I can’t afford to try and hope. I’ll let you know which one I find that works.
