Saw this on Facebook, and wow, I can relate. I had terrible skin for years and years, related to hormone issues and food allergies. Once I got off the pill and went vegan it cleared up mostly (monthly fluctuations still happen, hey, we're women, f*ck it), but I still remember being teased mercilessly about my skin, among other things. Thank you for posting this. Acne, or any other "issue" that makes people seem outwardly less than perfect is so hard to deal with. I hope you find something that helps your skin, but in the meantime, I am SO glad you are comfortable within yourself, which is far more important. THANK YOU for posting your true self!!
