I've always struggled with my skin. It was never actually severe, I was just really self conscious and paranoid about it. Even if I was going to the beach, I was sure to have some concealer and bronzer in my bag. In high school, I regularly went to the dermatologist and by freshman year of college I was breaking out regularly due to stress. A mixture of prescribed antibiotics and topical treatments and a happier environment helped get my skin back under control, but I was never really happy with it. Recently though, I've gotten way more comfortable in my own skin after completely gutting and then rebuilding my skincare regimen.
