Acne has literally left its mark on me. Acne, that nasty four letter word, reared its ugly heads when I was 13 years old. Little did I know then it would become a major bane on my existence leaving permanent scars on my face, which I still wear today.
When I was 17 years old during a school physical examination the doctor looked at my skin and said to the nurse, ‘This one has acne.” The nurse wrote it on my chart and I was mortified. There I was in line with many of my friends and classmates and not one of them had acne.
The doctor told me it was my genetics. He said, Fair haired light skinned people are prone to acne. As he spoke, I felt heat rising to my face and I blushed bright red with embarrassment and shock. I began to sweat. He continued, “Tough luck kid, it’s just how you are. Don’t worry, you’ll grow out of it.”
Read my article and watch the video, Clear Skin Naturally, to learn the connection between genetic predisposition to acne and epigenetics.
That common myth was my life raft for years. In my late 20s and early thirties while at the university I developed some of the worst acne of my entire life. Frustration and humiliation instantly followed as I became completely self conscious and my self esteem dropped to a new low.
I tried to cover up the often infected red sores with skin colored hypoallergenic makeup. My skin is very light and even the lightest color makeup was darker than my skin. The makeup reduced the red sores on my face from afar but 4 feet away they were completely obvious. I am sure everyone noticed and even if they did not notice, I always thought they did.
When ever I would have a conversation with someone I would try to place myself in relation to them so that I might obscure or reduce the chance of them seeing bright red sores or brown makeup blobs on my face. I would always think they were judging me because of my acne and the acne revealed how unworthy I was as a human being.
I would always comb my long hair in such a way to hide my oozing sores if at all possible. Acne sores were almost everywhere on my face at one time or another. If I could have combed my hair over my face without getting attention I would have tried!
I chose clothes that would hide the acne on my chest, shoulders and upper back. Most of the acne sores took about 2 weeks to heal and just as I was almost healed I would get another terrible outbreak. I was in a negative feedback loop heading for a fiery emotional crash.
The kill strike was when I began to get small wrinkles and still had acne. I wanted to believe the common myth that acne was the scourge of the young and I would grow out of it. Even when it hit me in my thirties. (Thirty is young, right?) I thought once you got wrinkles acne would be history.
I was devastated and even more embarrassed (if that was possible) because I was visibly older thanks to the new wrinkles and I was still dealing with acne! I have seen menopausal women and 60 year old men with serious acne worse than a teenager. Acne can strike at any age I learned to my great dismay.
There are no pictures of me for many years because I refused to have my picture taken and later on only allowed a few from afar. Acne changed my life. I made decisions based on my acne. I stayed home a lot waiting for the new outbreaks to heal. My social life was non existent.
No topical treatment, supplement, superfood or any other cure promising clear skin helped me heal my acne. I tried too many too count and spent way too much hard earned money on hype. Often these cures made things worse by causing an allergic response such as hives, swelling and peeling as well as even more acne!
While in rehab recovering from a car accident on Maui. I complained to my massage therapist that my body reacts strongly to everything. I told her, “I am so sensitive like the “canary in the coal mine” and my life is a wreck because of it.”
She hardly took a breath and said, “You’re so lucky! Most people have no idea what is going on with them. You’re tuned in and you should be happy. At least you can figure out what’s hurting you and change. That’s a special gift!”
Her words did not lift my spirit that day but I thought about it long and hard while working diligently to understand the messages my body was sending me loud and clear. I discovered the solution to my acne problem and I never had acne again. I threw out that awful brown cover makeup and have never bought it again. A dark cloud lifted and I felt reborn!
