In my teen years I was known as the acne King. My face has scores of both black heads and white heads. It was one of the most embarrassing times of my life. I was a walking talking running advertising billboard for acne. The ridicule of my peers - especially girls - was one thing. But the futility of trying to remove the ugly acne I had was another thing altogether.
The general myths about acne didn't help either. My family members strongly believed that acne was a result of poor diet. While it was true that I often ate humongous amounts of junk food from the neighborhood fast food joints, I wasn't really convinced that eating out was the bring about of my acne. I mean, many my friends ate out with me, and what's more, ate junk food even more frequently than I did. But they hardly had any acne. Something had to be wrong with the popular belief right? I had seen the myth being busted right before my eyes. Another associated myth was about chocolate. And since I loved chocolate in any form or shape, I would have found giving it up, even at the risk of left acne king, an abhorrent idea. But having read up and followed news and medical reports on the subject, I discovered to me relief that chocolate consumption had naught whatsoever to do with acne.
So obviously, something had to be wrong with my theory. Then I thought, maybe it's all the chocolate I'm eating. I've been a chocolate lover for a long time. And since I loved chocolate in any form or shape, I would have found giving it up, even at the risk of remaining acne king, an abhorrent idea. But having read up and followed news and medical reports on the subject, I discovered to me relief that chocolate consumption had nothing whatsoever to do with acne.
My peers were not really much help either. Many of my friends, hinted with obvious sarcasm, that my acne advertisement face was a result of my common and constant sweating. In other words, heavy sweating causes acne. But again, many of my friends sweated much more than I did and they had nary a trace of acne. Another acne myth busted.
Another myth that I did believe, and which sounded genuine and even scientific at that time, connected to the assumption that acne was a result of dirt accumulation on the pores of my face. I never stopped to consider that if that was the case, why wasn't the skin on my arms and legs, which were more in contact with dirt and grime than any other part of my body, riddled with acne?
In any case, I spent several days, weeks and months assiduously washing my face with all kinds of soaps and anti acne creams in a bid to get rid of acne. To no effect.
Lastly, I resorted to a fatalistic attitude and concluded that the more I stressed myself out thinking about my acne, the more they would continue to remain. It was at that point that I gave up bothering about my acne filled face. And guess what? A few years later, as I slowly grew out of my adolescence, the acne disappeared on its own! Even though there are still a few tell tale scars of my acne king days, my face is clear and radiant today!
Maybe in some people it's just a natural part of growing up and those of us that have acne, just have to learn to suffer with it.
