Yesterday, I got a zit. On my lip.
How does one get a zit on one's lip? For that matter, how does one get rid of a zit on one's lip? It hurts like the dickens! I can't even apply chapstick without causing myself pain.
I don't remember suffering from acne as a high schooler. Maybe it was because puberty hit me really late. Maybe I was just too busy to notice, but I don't remember it being a plague. Or a social detriment.
Not that I was very social in high school.
In college, my skin started to get a bit more oily, but I think it was mostly the change in weather (yes, Bellingham has quite different weather than Seattle). That and I gained some weight. Not much, but possibly enough to set my hormones out of whack.
Now that I'm "grown up," I've had more zits than ever before. Not a lot, but enough to be a nuisance. Okay, so I rarely have more than three at a time, but still. That's three too many.
Especially when you're 30 years old and should have grown out of this phase by now.
Especially ones on your lips.
Most especially the ones on your lips that are situated right in the very middle of your upper lip.
