I got complimented on my skin today. It completely took me by surpise because I have already been complimented on my skin never. I have already been complimented on my eyes, ambition, and style. But, never my skin. Since I used to be in 7th grade, I have already been plagued with those bumps on my face. They undertake many forms and pass many names including pimples, zits, boils, areas, breakout, cysts, and my least favorite: acne vulgaris (the name just noises horrible!). I have already been through many dermatologists, each one stunning both my ego and my budget.
It was humiliating near each one as they crinkled up their nose studying the one thing I spent half an hour that morning attempting to hide. They would prescribe everything: antibiotics, face creams, gels, Accutane, and soaps. I dreaded my follow-up meetings even worse than my preliminary sessions. I knew they would be disappointed in my own progress and make a snide remark doubting I had been following their regimen, which, truthfully, I did.

Then I would be off on my hunt to discover a new dermatologist, searching for the one which could both help my cause rather than make me feel even more insecure about my face than I already was. I never found “The One”. Defeated, I resorted to over the counter medicatons, Benzoyl Peroxide, daily masks, and Salicylic Acid. Onetime I was in such dispair that I purchased the Salicylic Acid for wart removal since it was stronger. But, before you try that, it does not work – well absolutely, unless you matter a stinging feeling accompanied by no progress treatment!
I tried all the name brands, the 3-step informercial systems (you understand the ones), and store brands. Each would work for a little then your acne would fight – and turn out in full pressure. I used to be now in my early 20’s and completely envied anyone with clear skin.
I made a comment at the job that I would need to perform home and fix my base before attending a happy hour. The receptionist was astonished that anyone needed to fix foundation during the day. I put one friend tell me that I usually looked like I had foundation caking near my nose (uh, thanks?).
I experienced one very rude colleague intentionally tell me that I had acne and her partner loved her for her beautiful pores and skin. She was over the age of me and experienced no reason for stating something so hurtful. Goodness, I sadly am 35 now and, those comment still haunt me. Finally, in my late 20’s it stopped.
I have no idea if it was a mixture of every one treatment throughout my entire life or the easy fact which i was getting older. I still had small surface ones, but they were the exception as opposed to the rule. Then, following the age of 30 shortly, Evening commericals I turned to Bare Nutrients using their fabulous late. I loved Bare Minerals.
It didn’t itch my pores and skin. It experienced so light and made me look glorious, even in pictures. I’d sometimes mix it with moisturizer or water for an ultra sheer look or just do the “swirl, tap, buff”. After a couple weeks, I began developing hard knots under my epidermis.
They were deep, unpleasant, had no head, and sometimes would distend my face. I put never acquired this kind of acne before and I used to be puzzled. But, I didn’t visit another dermatologist. I dealt with it just. I tried new soaps and treatments. It never occurred to me it could be my pure Bare Minerals.
