My aunt is a pretty great woman. She’s a dermatologist and I consider her a hero, of sorts. Skin problems are nothing to scoff at and they can lead to major embarrassment, so to have a trustworthy dermatologist as your friend and confidante is a great and valuable asset to have in your life.
Her main objective is to teach others how to get rid of acne, and also to prescribe medication for this purpose. The medication can get costly but let me tell you, it’s more than worth it! Kids and adolescents come over to her and entrust her with their skin, which is the first thing people will notice about you and the first thing they will judge you on. Think about it, it’s a big responsibility!
The advice she gives me is pretty straightforward. Less chocolate, more exercise, and more water. Also, she does tell me the problem is genetic, which I happen to agree with. This isn’t to say there’s nothing you can do about it, but it does mean that certain people are more susceptible than others.
It’s a tough profession but honorable, too!
