This post is made out of blue.
I was browsing through the old photos in my phone since I’m running out of space and I must delete some unnecessary pics–which I have TONS. I still had photos from 2016 (2 years ago!!!) and of course selfies from that time too. Looking back, I recently realized that I have been dealing with cystic acne. It started when I was 14. I never looked up why I always had those red, huge painful pimples laid deep in the skin. When it popped, it wasn’t just a short pain on the surface. The pain could stay for days. All I knew was the oily skin myth: I got blemishes cause my skin type is oily. I started watching many beauty gurus blogs and videos just when I went to college, focusing on oily skin care and makeup tips. I continuously heard some of them fighting cystic acne. Being an inexperienced beauty enthusiast that I was, googled it was the answer.
That is what I have been experiencing for years.
