Having Acne Isn’t Bad – But Here’s Why Judging People for It Is

Were you taught the same myth this author heard when she was young? She thought her acne would clear up before wrinkles began – but like many adults, she’s since learned that adults get acne all the time.

With Love,
The Editors at Everyday Feminism
