Of all the social media platforms I have, I could go the longest without Facebook. It’s not as quick as Twitter, not as insanely pleasing as Tumblr. It’s, as the kids say – basic. However, without it I would have never scrolled along and stumbled upon Dinuki Suraweera’s Huffington Post article, “How Having Adult Acne Made Me More Accepting of Other Women.” In it she detailed her struggle with facial imperfections after moving to New York City, which she told me of the move and the outbreak, “I think your skin takes a toll when your life is thrown off balance like that.”
At first I wanted to talk to a dermatologist about this topic, but after contacting a few and not hearing back – it was fate this article popped up in my feed. A doctor can tell you this and that, but when it comes to living with it, who better than someone like Dinuki? So we’ll find out more about this 31-year-old copywriter’s struggle with acne as an adult and how she got through it all.
