Whoever says spots are the reserve of teenagers is a vicious, vicious liar. School and college was spot and blemish free, and then a fatal facial (I didn’t follow it through every 4-6 weeks as advised), introduced me to pimples, and worse, the blemishes which last forever. I’m not sure whether it is just Asian skin which suffers blemishes, but they by far are much worse than the spots themselves, which stick around for just a few days.
I often get told it’s all in the mind, i.e. that other people don’t notice your unfortunate breakout until you point it out to them. I do often find this to be the case at work, either that or people are just incredibly polite and would rather lie point blank than say, ‘oh actually yes, I had noticed that spot on your cheek.’
