I have been living with pretty bad acne for as long as I can remember (in reality, probably since I started hitting puberty). My acne got really bad when I was in high school, but instead of trying a drug like Accutane, I went on birth control, which helped to clear things up. However, since I went off birth control pills, my breakouts have come back with a vengeance that is more than slightly annoying for someone my age. I was always told that adults don’t have to worry about pimples. Well, here I am, a few years into adulthood, dealing with acne. WTF?
