I’m not going to lie to you. It took me a long time to share this video.
Mainly because I felt embarrassed and didn’t want anyone to feel disgusted while looking at a photo of my sore, red face. I felt so vulnerable at the thought of it. Then the more I thought about that sentiment, the more I realised that is the exact reason I should share this video.
Because there really is nothing to be ashamed about.
This is my face. This is what I am going through and it’s the truth. It is the truth of what many people are going through on a daily basis. Acne is the most common skin problem in the world and as isolating as it may feel when it is happening to you, you are not alone.
So here I am, exposing myself to the world. I am an adult with acne and it sucks but I am going to use this journey to help others going through anything similar to what I am going through right now.
Acne does not define me and it does not define you either.
