Teenage years have taken a huge toll on our lives. From picky mean girls to bundles of class assignments, we did try our best to not allow any of this to come in the way of us achieving the goals that we might still be confused about.

We dont want to let others see how we might not be enjoying our “Golden Years” as they said we would.

But while hiding and pretending about what we are or what we are supposed to be, our skin might doesn’t take the same side as ours. Acne, pimples, and blackheads are all a simple way of telling us,” Girl get your shit together!”

And unlike any other girl, this happened to me as well. Acne and pimples that won’t just go and no matter what I tried, it just ruined my skin more and more.

Not going to lie, I’ve done pretty horrible things to my face that I never even should have thought of in the first place, that included a baking soda and lemon juice face mask(Yikes!!).

But one thing that I would never regret trying was the Holy Grail ingredient vitamin C.

So How My Skin Got Saved?

During my worst times of skincare, when I needed something that would calm my acne down at least once, I found a moisturizer that had vitamin C in it.

Thinking to myself that I’ve never tried this product and in this desperate time I would do anything, I took the bottle off the shelf and came home.

Within 2 weeks I saw the change that I craved for years. My acne started healing, the redness started fading away and most of all my skin texture improved.

That one product wasn’t enough to get me flawless skin but it sure did help me get my self-esteem back after such a long time.

So if you’re wondering to you’re self that what is vitamin C and how it affected this stranger’s life for good. Read on to find out.

Believe it or not, there are a few moisturizers out there that have already incorporated vitamin C in them so you dont have to buy two products at the same time.

This saves money and also time which you would probably know are crucial in this teenage year.

Serums provide a much purer form of vitamin C than a moisturizer. It comes in different concentrations so for starters, use the lowest concentration you can find.

Apply your serum after moisturizer, this trick seals the moisturizer into your skin, so it gets hydrated and the vitamin C could work wonders by hydrating your skin to the maximum.

Make sure that your serum is thicker than the moisturizer, if not then this trick won’t work, but dont worry you would still get the vitamin C benefits.

Vitamin C is one of the easiest vitamins to get into your diet. Incorporating fruits like oranges, lemon, and grapefruit into your diet would not only get your skin healthy and glowy but it’s also great for your physical and mental health in a long run.

Take Away

The way you look or pretend to be might seem like what all high school and teenage years are all about.

But trust me, as a “pretend to be” myself in my past years, I’ve faced a lot for not being myself and one thing that I should have realized sooner was if my clothes, backpack, hobbies, even skin doesn’t look similar to THAT popular girl, it’s okay.

Cause being someone else doesn’t define me, it’s what I want and working towards does, and that’s normal.
