My Ugly Phase

I used to suffer from bad acne back when I was in my early to mid twenties. I believe I looked my ugliest then. I had bad skin, braces and I was perpetually sleep deprived (I was in medical school, and later, clerkship, at that time). It took a few years before the acne eventually got licked, and even then the scars still remain with me until now, albeit they're not as bad as they were before. I wished that more effective Acne Products were around that could have made the acne better, prevent future scars and generally make my skin better looking. It would have done wonders for my self esteem too!
