Zits are for Kids!

When do you stop getting random zits? I thought bad skin was a teenager thing. I thought I would outgrow this!

Today I have a zit. On the day I have a date with witty-boy, my body decides I need some decoration on my face. Why? Why now? Why me? How can this happen?

I feel like a whiny teenager who gets a zit right before prom. But seriously, aren’t I too old for this?

Yesterday there was nothing there. I was running late this morning and didn’t really inspect my face in the mirror before work- just a quick ponytail and a brushing of the teeth. But when I got to work I felt a huge growth on my chin. The crater forming beneath my skin was practically painful. I didn’t have a mirror so I ran to the bathroom. Sure enough there was a huge zit.

I won’t give you all the gory details, but I will tell you I can not stop messing with it. I am so mad at it I want to mash and mash it until it goes away. I know I shouldn’t. I know that just makes it worse. But it is like uncontrollable. I want it to go away!

Got any tips?

You poor thing! They say that using a little Visine will help take the redness out of it (no, I'm not kidding) but it doesn't last too long. Icing it might also help with swelling and redness. There is always cover-up. You must not pick at it- easier said than done, I know! Good luck!

I have more problems with my skin now that I am almost thirty than I ever did when I was a teenager. I have tried everything I can think of to no avail. If you find something that actually helps, please let me know! :-)
