Acne and acne scars are something that many of us teens go through, no matter how much we try to hide it. God, how I wish I could just have perfect skin as some lucky people.
This issue concerns such a big part of our adolescent culture, it’s almost scary. I can assure you that a big part of the people you meet on the streets are trying to hide the scars they have received as a teenager.
Recently I have caught myself in the mist of talking bad about myself because of the scars on my face. In no way am I saying that I have as big of an issue that many others may have but it got me thinking.
We are not defined by the scars on our faces, no matter how big or small they are. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, inside and out. Acne does not make you one thing or another. It does not make us yucky or dirty, it simply makes us normal teenagers. Embrace yourself.
