Goodbye, old friend

So don’t hate me, but when I was younger, my skin rocked.  Besides a few large pores on my nose and such, I had nary a blemish.  Even through my horribly awkward teen years.  I know, you want to poke my eyes out with a large stick, don’t you?  Well, not so fast.
It seems that once I hit the big 30 (a year and a half ago..YIKES!), I developed ***cue dramatic music***
ADULT ACNE.  I can’t tell you how embarassing this is.  Sure, my skin is OK, but it’s really annoying when you’re meeting with people looking like, well, a pizza face.  I went to the dermatologist yesterday and they put me on a strict facewashing and topical regimen.  I now have to wash my face and use Diffiren at night and wash and use Duac in the morning. 
So out goes the Noxema I’ve used on and off since I was old enough use anything but bar soap.  I’ll miss ya, old friend.

  1. Oh the smell of Noxema….THAT is the scent of teen spirit!

    So this is probably too personal: would hormone therapy let you hold on to the youth cream? Not that I recommend hormones but just a thought.

    I love the idea of writing an ode to a piece of my past. Very cool, thanks for the inspiration.

  2. yeah, i'm just not at all happy with the persistence of acne as i careen wildly towards 30. damn it all, we should be able to leave some problems behind in adolescence. it's evil to have to deal with anti-aging cream and acne gel at the same time.
