Growing up, I always battled with acne. I’ve had acne and bad skin for years. It never seemed to get better even when I tried so many skin care products, and treatments.
Growing up, I always battled with acne. I’ve had acne and bad skin for years. It never seemed to get better even when I tried so many skin care products, and treatments. There were times I cried because I hated how rough my face looked and how smooth my siblings faces were. None had a skin routine that they followed, so I found it unfair. I developed a low self-esteem because of my skin and hardly went out unless it was necessary. It was really a terrible time for me.
Everything changed when I fell sick and had to visit the hospital last year. During my final dose of injection, the doctor asked me if I wanted to see the hospital's dermatologist for my skin reaction—he called it a reaction. I half-heartedly said yes, because by this time I had given up. I went to the dermatologist and I was prescribed some drugs and ointments. In less than a week I could see the difference. Few months down the line, my face was almost cleared of all acne. I went back to the hospital and asked the dermatologist if there was anything I could use for the scars the acne left, and he recommended a lotion. It is a year now and I can say seeing a dermatologist is one of the healthiest decisions I've made in a while. I wish I thought of it sooner.
