Today I would like to share a theme with you that concerned me the past year. Maybe some of you noticed it on Snapchat or on our Instagram profile on my pictures. I think it’s the best when I start at the beginning. A year ago, I decided to stop taking the birth control pill, a decision I will never regret. I took the pill for almost ten years. At that time, I started taking it, because I had acne and my skin doctor told me, that this would be the easiest way for me to get rid of the problem. So I did it and my skin became healthy and clean. Ten years later that decision was probably a disaster for me. Two month after I stop taking the birth control pill, my skin has completely changed. At the age of twenty six I felt like I was thrown back into my puberty. The acne was especially bad in the neckline, on the back and at the face. Girls who have always had great skin will probably never be able to understand what pain it is to have that sort of dermatosis. The whole skin is inflamed, painful and looks terrible. Every morning I was confronted with this dimension when I looked into the mirror. For many people it doesn’t seem to be bad, but often these people never had any issues with their skin. I felt pretty bad at this time and nothing helped me. No cream, not even healthy eating or sports. This time was very stressful for me, especially if you work in an industry, which is all about your look. I was confronted with it every day and it really changed me.
My family and friends were always there for me, my boyfriend buoyed me up and told me, that it didn’t look as bad as I assumed. But when the day comes where you have to ask a friend to cover your pimples on your back, so you can wear a sleeveless top, there aren’t any more words that can help you.
My skin doctor has prescribed me . A medicine that prevents the inflammation of the skin. A medicine that has many side effects. My family and my boyfriend didn’t want me to take this kind of medicine, because they were too afraid of what could happen to me. But for me it was clear, I wanted to look normal again and feel good in my skin. So I started the cure six month ago.
Meanwhile I’m at the end of the tablet cure and I feel so much better. My skin looks much better, no impurities, no pain and everything looks the way it used to be.
I know that everything is about how you look, at the fashion scene. Everyone wants to be beautiful, but everyone has flaws. Nobody is perfect, even if it looks like you have everything under control. We all have flaws which we would like to change. But the most important thing is to love yourself. The most important is not how you look like but who you are. Of course, I changed my skin with the medicine that I’m taking but I also learned to admit that I’m not perfect and I really don’t want to be perfect. I’m a human like everyone else. And let’s be honest, the little flaws that we have are the things that make us who we are.
