Late 2015 and early into 2016, my face (specifically my jaw and chin area) started sprouting clusters of pimples . I’ve been acne-prone since I hit puberty, but this was the first time since high school that pimples popped up like crazy on my face; I usually get just a couple here and there. I think it must be because of stress brought on by being org president because not too long ago, I enjoyed relatively clear skin despite being exposed daily to pollution.
