...and not under control.
As I get older, I thought that one aspect of my teen life would go away forever. Well, it hasn't.
Why the hell do I still have acne? Why? Why? Why?
This stuff should be over by now. I suffered through the mild breakouts as a teen, testing every acne cream including the white and tinted Clearasil. I tested every color of concealer under the sun my mom would let me buy at Drug Mart from CoverGirl to Maybelline. It never worked and probably looked terrible with a multicolor face! Good thing we didn't carry cell phones like kids do these days. There would be sooooo many more bad pictures available to haunt me.
I'm 26 yet I still have remnants of my teen years. Every three months without fail, I feel a bump start to develop in what is commonly known as the "T zone."
Boys, make a "T" on your face and that's what's known as the T zone. It's typically known as greasiest zone on your face.
Anyway, I still get these monstrous bumps near my chin every three months. The rest of my face will be completely clear minus the bump. The only thing that ever "cures" them is a shot in my face from the dermatologist.
Don't cringe, it's not painful and just costs a doctor's visit to fix it.
It's like botox for middle aged women. Botox reduces lines and my shot reduces zits.
I pop over to his office on my lunch hour and come back, knowing that my face will clear up in a few days versus the week and a half it would normally take. Sometimes I even leave tiny bandage on my face to hide the icky redness.
I just experienced my three month itch and definitely not awaiting my next spot that will appear in June like clockwork. Damn you, t-zone!
