Another hopeful teenager who is suffering

By: Nell S. 

Like most teenagers who have suffered from acne and scarring, i am one of those who didn’t take it very well. I’m the kind of person who will look in the mirror and try to find any flaw and this current situation isn’t really helping me and my confidence. I wouldn’t say that i have severe scarring but my situation is still pushing me into the direction i don't want to find myself in. I don’t want to keep staring at myself in the mirror, feeling a big lump in my throat everytime i go out without covering my face with a full makeup look. I want to be that person who doesn’t need to rely on anything to feel good about herself! But unfortunately, i’m still not her.

Well it all began when i started to get pimples. At a young age, i mostly got them on my forehead and they weren’t really that big but as a kid it still got to me. Seeing all my friends with no lumps on their faces made me feel like an outsider. And as a kid, i began my research. If i remember correctly, i was about 11 or 12 years old when i bought my own anti-acne wash and face cream. I also remember hiding the bottle so that not even my family would know about my insecurity.

As i got older, my face started to change and i got more pimples, now also on my cheeks and around my nose. I started buying more products only to find that nothing worked and that they actually made it worse. I tried talking to so many people. I tried to find guidelines for whatever could help my skin but i came soon to realise that most of them were only trying to sell their products and wouldn’t bother listening to my actual problem.

I have still tried a lot of things to get rid of them to this day.

I’m a girl with no income who spends a lot of my valuable time searching for a miracle. I don’t want to spend more money and honestly i have nothing more to spend.

I’m currently 18 years old and i still have acne and i do break out. I have scars from previous pimples and i’m counting on Banish acne scars, derma roller to be the product that will work for me. I’ve done my research well enough and i have my faith. I’m not looking for a product to get rid of my pimples for life but i’m really concerned about my scars and they being with me for life. I have strong hopes that this will be the product. Banish acne scars and the purpose behind it sounds so simple but yet so accurate and effective.

I’m ready to take a chance again. Maybe i will be that confident girl i dream to be. No scars should stop me.
