Adult acne — let’s talk about it! I feel like I am going through puberty and haven’t felt comfortable in my own skin for the last few months. I’ve had the most painful cystic chin acne that often runs so deep that one side of my lip will appear swollen from the cyst. It began about four months ago, when my skin decided that life was way too short to be pretty, so my hormones basically said “YOLO” and things haven’t been the same since. Adult acne has officially reared it’s ugly head and it’s been extremely frustrating and a definite confidence killer. As women, we want to feel beautiful and no matter how much our men and our friends affirm our beauty, if we don’t see it in ourselves, we don’t believe it.
