Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking getting pimples at a young age -- and being sick of them!!
M Reader EdwardCullenObsessor5396 asked:
I'm 11 years old and I've been getting pimples for the last year. They used to only be on my forehead, but now I have them on my cheeks! Sometimes, I even get them on my chin and nose! I'm the only one in my class who has pimples already and it's really embarrassing. I constantly try face washes and creams but nothing helps. What should I do?
And M Girl's answer is:
"Going through puberty can definitely get on everyone's nerves because your body is changing and you can't help it! I know it's hard being the first one going through these changes, but sooner or later, everyone around you will be starting to break out too! You're just growing up a little earlier than everyone else. Chances are, when you're done breaking out your friends will just begin to --Â and you'll be the go-to-gal with all the advice on how to handle frustrating breakouts! Just keep searching for the right facial treatment that's perfect for your skin. It may take some time, but looking and trying different things won't hurt! You could always ask your doctor what he or she suggests for your skin. But remember that no matter what, you're beautiful and these annoying pimples will totally go away before you know it! Just hang in there!"
