And again with the crazy person. For the last month, my skin has been freaking out. I have been breaking out with at least one new blemish every day, if not every twelve hours. I have no idea what's causing it, because none of my habits have changed in the last six months. The only change has been the weather, which I'm guessing might be the culprit.
My mother, with nothing better to do with her time, watches TV constantly and has gotten in the routine of trying to get me to buy shit in commercials, especially if she sees something that may help with a problem that I have, like the current breakouts. She just spent the last twenty minutes trying to convince me to try something that I have already tried in the past. For the record, nothing that I have tried has EVER reduced my acne, and I have given everything its fair chance, as in, years and not weeks or months. When I explained this to her (multiple times), she finally just stormed out and said, "I was just trying to help, but apparently you don't want help!"
No, dumbass, this isn't about wanting anything. It's about the fact that you are presenting me with old information, tried-and-failed methods. It's about using logic and realizing that there's no point in spending money to travel down a road that I already know leads to a dead end. She doesn't seem to be able to grasp that the health and beauty industry is all just one big clusterfuck of lies and products being re-packaged to look new. Shit, every time I buy a new bottle of shampoo, the design on the bottle is different, even though I've been buying the same one for at least a year. Deception is how this industry makes money. Learn it.
