Dear Dish-it: How Do I Change My Look?

Apr 19, 2013

Dear Dish-it,

Lately, my family and friends say I have pimples on my forehead and my dimples are weird. I know I'm supposed to love myself for who I am, but I just hate myself. I need to take care of my hygiene now that I'm going through puberty. Help!

Pimples and Dimples

Dear Pimples and Dimples

Puberty can be a rough time. Your body is beginning to change in many ways and so are your hormones. Lots of people your age begin to develop pimples, but the fact that they're just on your forehead makes you lucky. Many teens wind up with them all over their face.

Hygiene and Diet Is Important

Fortunately, there is a solution when it comes to your personal hygiene. Ask the dermatologist at your local drug store to recommend a face wash, and use it morning and night. Or go with the popular skin care system called Proactiv. It's a bit more pricy and your parents will have to order it for you online since it's not sold in stores. But I can tell you from personal experience as someone who had forehead pimples, it works! But make sure you cut down on the greasy and sugary foods. They only make acne worse.

Own Your Dimples

As for your dimples, you need to own these. There's no product that can remove them. Just remember, as a teen they may be funny looking, but you'll grow into them. In fact, I know plenty of people who wish they had a dimple like mine! So there's no reason to hate yourself, especially if you are a good person on the inside. As for the outside, the acne is treatable. So love who you are no matter what!
