Not going to lie, I had a pretty intense internal debate over whether or not I should film this week, given that I wanted to be safer and not use makeup for a little while longer while I wait and see if my stye has truly gone away completely. It's not visible at all in this video, but there seems to be the faintest of scars if you look up close. And given that it's basically a pimple in my eyelid, I'm not that surprised. I scar very easily.
I developed a stye last week and nearly didn't make a video, but I just couldn't resist saying hello to you all. So I showed up like this:
Certainly not my best look, but at least it was something new.
The struggle with adult acne continues far beyond the cystic acne healing. If I am honest with myself, I have to admit that I often still see that cystic acne when I look in the mirror now, even though I no longer suffer from it. Many of scars remain, and they constantly remind me of how I felt back then.
I don't want that experience to go to waste, so I am passing it on to you guys. It's my dream that I can help at least a few people out there come to a better understanding of their friends who suffer from skin conditions.
