How Bad Skin Affects Your Dating Life

At 15 I had yet to be kissed. All because of my brace face and bad skin.

From middle school to ninth grade I had terrible self-esteem. It was mostly due to my long and scrawny arms, metal braces, pink-plastic Welfare glasses that were too big for my face, and really bad skin. Did I mention I was also new in town? My family moved from NYC to Lawrence, MA and I went to high school at Phillips Academy Andover – a prep school for rich smartypants. Needless to say, the odds were stalked against me.

So I shrunk like a violet. I didn’t feel pretty enough. Stuck in the friend zone, guys never asked me out on dates. I didn’t even know how to flirt. Unlike many of my peers who were humping like bunnies, at 15 I had yet to be kissed. All because of my brace face and bad skin.

Bad acne and skin

Can you spot me?! I’m hard to miss lol. 

So, how do you combat bad skin so acne doesn’t blemish your dating life? Here are some tips:

Better your skin.

I’m a solution-oriented person; luckily, there’s a solution for bad skin. You just have to find the right product. I discovered Rodan and Fields: Unblemish. Clinically proven to combat acne at every stage, this effective regimen helps unclog pores, clears acne scars and keep pimples, blackheads and post-acne marks away once and for all. It truly is a God-send.

Begin a skin regimen.

And follow through! You can purchase Rodan and Fields: Unblemish and leave it in a box, or you can open the box and use the products as advised – that’s twice a day! Following a regimen is essential when bettering your skin.

Give it time.

Nothing good happens overnight – and that includes having great skin. You have to wait for the results. Luckily, Rodan and Fields has a 60-day money back guarantee. You can try it for two months and watch your skin transform without any pressure.

Have confidence. 

In the end you can have the best skin in the world and still lack confidence. That was one of my battles. My skin cleared, Mami bought me contacts and I gained a bit of weight; but I still felt unpretty and unworthy of the dates that I longed for.

That’s because beauty is only skin deep. Start a Rodan and Fields skin routine while simultaneously strengthening your love of self. It’s the best way to transform bad skin and a lackluster dating life.
