Acne and scars have always made me insecure, but somehow I grew to love myself and learned to live with them.
It started around October 2018 when I had hormonal acne. My period went haywire while I was on my birth control pills (POP). During my second pregnancy, my skin was so clear that everyone noticed it.
I had cystic acne on my forehead, cheeks, and chin. My anxiousness made me buy every acne-related product in the store. I suffered hormonal acne for a year, until my child turned 2 and I switched to combination pills.
I had clear skin, but the scars were still there. Some of the products caused me to have closed comedones. I went to a local beautician. Obviously they would do pimple extractions. Now, I have ice pick scarring on my right cheek.
Often, I wonder if these scars will remain forever. I only tried dermarollers, but couldn’t say if it was effective.
I want to remind you that imperfections do not make us ugly. We don’t have to be perfect to be noticed. We are beautiful in our own way.
It’s easy for someone to point out scars and make us feel like we’re ugly. You are now conscious about it, when previously you didn’t.
You might wear makeup to hide those scars, just to look beautiful in front of others. Nevertheless, ask yourself: does it really matter if you satisfy the feelings of others?
The life we live now is all about the looks.. Now, I would say “Just go ahead and judge me.” I would prefer to be alone without someone who doesn’t accept me for who I am.
Today, people choose to judge people physically, rather than know them by heart. Don’t compare your life with others because of social media (even though it could be true).
People tend to judge physically rather than on character. Be confident of your scars.
In every scar, there is always a story behind it. So, it depends on how you look at it.
We all have scars. Some are just more visible than others.
