An Open Letter to the Zit on My Chin

Dear Zit,

I know that we just met, but I can’t stop thinking about you. I want to spend all of my time touching you. I know it is wrong to do it, but it feels so right. That being said, I really don’t think that we are going to work out. This is becoming an unhealthy obsession. Besides, you aren’t really that cute.

It is truly hard to believe how much of an impact you have had on my life. You came out of nowhere when I was least expecting it, and turned my life upside down. I went to bed one day perfectly content with my face, and the next, you were there…large and in charge. I cannot eat, or smile, or talk without you hurting me – but nothing causes me more pain than when I look at you in the mirror.

Chin, I honestly do not appreciate the way that you attacked me like this. I have done nothing but show you kindness, and yet you betrayed me. I religiously wash, tone, and moisturize my face twice daily. I treat my skin weekly with Lush masks, and try my best to never rest my face on my hand. Even though I hate it, I make myself drink lots of water. I try to stay away from chocolate and sugar. What did I do to deserve this?

I know that a part of me should be thanking you. You are basically a monthly alarm clock telling me to pick up tampons. However, I feel ugly enough when I’m on my period without you becoming a focal point on my face. You really are an attention whore. Not to mention, I know that you are going to leave a mess behind even after you are gone.

I have gone through so much concealer ever since you popped up. I apply layer upon layer, only to wipe it off and try again because nothing can hide you. I have to cover my face with a peace sign in every single SnapChat I send, and frankly, I’m getting sick of posing like a K-Pop star.


I write this sitting with a glob of toothpaste on my face, hoping to suck the life out of you. I have consumed 12 glasses of water today, but I know deep down that it will only result in frequent trips to the washroom – not perfect skin. I can’t get rid of you that easily.

I don’t know what else to do. You are ruining my life. Please get off of my face. I would appreciate it in the future if you stopped your aggressive, and irrational behaviour.
