Medications + Makeup + Me

{By Caitlin Muir}

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had this fear. Of being ugly. First it was the battle of chicklet teeth. Then the horrible hair era. But just when it was getting oh so good, it took a turn for the worst.
I was eighteen when I started getting acne.
I did everything I could to hide it. Medications + Makeup became my mantra. While it was never severe, the angry red splotches stood out against my milky twilight-white skin like warning signs to those who passed by. Acne is an imperfection that I’ve never wanted to embrace.
