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!

How Do You Get Rid of Zits?

  • I pop 'em.
  • I ignore them.
  • I use acne-fighting cleansers and creams.
  • Zits? What zits?

The person who created the post just never posted anything, they only titled it. And besides, even if it was me who created it, titling it "Suicide isn't the answer" wouldn't gather as much of an audience. Say someone here actually WAS thinking of suicide. They'd see this post and think about looking at it to see how many others were too. They'd come here and they might actually change their mind because they'd see my *encouraging* post that was totally unexpected. It's called a head fake. But if they saw "Suicide isn't the answer" as a title, they'd probably not look at it because they'd heard the same thing over and over again. I'm not suicidal, but if I were I wouldn't probably bother looking at a post like that.  I see your point now.

IT WILL BREAK YOUR MOM AND DADS HEART!!!!!!   think about this will suicide make u feel better? how will it affect the people who love you?   does it have somthing to do with home life?   bulling? school?  boy friend/ girlfriend problem? talk to your loved ones about how u feel  if this is getting worse i would say talk to a specialist.  i dont want to sound to preachy but i am wondering did u post this so people could say ok and that would justify your actions?   or were u looking for help? i would gladly give it if i could but this is all i can do 4 u.... think it over...... im sorry if i sound to harsh to u....
