If you had asked teenage Sarah about her skin, she’d have told you vehemently (with exaggerated arm gestures for added melodrama) that it was a zit colony, where all the disgusting pustules got together to party and make her life hell. It’s true that I spent a significant amount of time thinking about my zits, trying all the remedies from home jobs (tea tree oil, nail polish remover) to almost every product from Bonne Bell to Benzoyl Peroxide trying to kill the little colonies off (my skin barrier still has PTSD from it). But now, with a couple decades of hindsight and a career writing about such things I can tell you objectively that my skin wasn’t that bad. My three or four semi-permanent spots were just “normal”, and leveled out to a predictable solo spot on my chin to celebrate the beginning of PMS each month. Despite what 16-year-old me would have you believe, I was lucky.

Looking back, it’s a bit ironic to think that I was a swimmer in high school… because it necessitated so much of my body being shown. A body I was acutely aware of and which I covered as much as possible whenever it wasn’t being obscured by chlorinated water.
