I think this is the first time in my entire life that I’ve ever had a full-on skincare routine. I’ve been a 2x-a-day face washing girl with day and night moisturizer for probably the past 8 years. I haven’t strayed much from it because it worked to an extent, but since August, my face has been a bit out of control, and I figured that as a 20-year-old, I should probably start taking better care of my skin.
Recently my face has been that of a pubescent middle schooler, and I’m not too fond of that.
I don’t know if it’s hormonal changes, if it’s my anxiety, if it’s the stress of school, or a combination of everything, but whatever it is, I’m not happy about it.
It’s messing with my self-confidence, and it’s just straight up frustrating to look in the mirror and see my forehead covered in red bumps. To deal with it for the day, it’s always the toss up of covering my face in makeup to try and hide the problem or letting my skin breathe and feeling like everyone’s staring at my face all day.
