Skin Care

Growing up, I had a terrible acne problem. I can't even imagine it when I see pictures of myself from back then; I was one of those "rebels" who didn't much care about my appearance and I shudder everytime I am forced to look at a picture of myself from that time. I barely remember how bad it was - like in a fog or a dream - but I remember it was bad and I tried literally everything on the market to control it, but nothing helped.

Eventually, I got to a doctor and he sent me to a specialist and the specialist gave me some prescription stuff called Retin-A. It was so powerful that it caused my entire face to turn bright red because it works by literally burning-off the epidermis! After your face peels for a few weeks, it really works wonders, but those few weeks are uncomfortable, painful, and - for a teenager forced to face his peers on a daily basis - emotionally troubling. Luckily, there have been a lot of advancements in problem skincare since that time.
