Comebacks when people make fun of your acne


What to say when people make fun of your pimples

When you are suffering from an acne flare up, there is nothing worse than some jerk pointing it out. It’s embarrassing enough having to go out and feel self-conscious about your face without people making fun of your spots. When someone draws attention to your skin in public, it can feel devastating for teenagers.

Approximately 85 percent of teens suffer from acne, so you are definitely not alone in your skin challenges. Even though it is horrible when your skin flares up, your pimples should clear up eventually. You won’t have acne problems forever.

For some strange reason, people seem to think that they’re dermatologists and offer skin advice.

If you are upset, want to get your point across, and shut the person up for good when they make derogatory comments about your zits, try a few of these snappy comebacks.

Kendell Jenner was freaked out about high school acne

Kendall Jenner suffered from really bad acne when she was younger and it really affected her self-confidence.

Kendall shared some memories on her web site:

I had such bad acne when I was younger; I remember it SO well!’ she shared. ‘I started having skin issues around the 8th or 9th grade.’

‘I think I just got acne from being a teenager and simply growing up, which happens to SO many people,’ she said. ‘But, where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self-esteem.

‘I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face.’

Even though she found it very challenging at the time, Jenner didn’t let the acne hold her back and she went on to achieve great things.

  1. I am often teased about my acne, and I’m still relatively young, being under 12 years of age. I often say “too bad I’ll be laughing at you in high school” or “That’s your entitled opinion, now go bury it in a hole on Pluto” Hope this comment helped.

    1. Thanks Sol Grace Valdez-Levesque. This helped a ton! (Not a literal ton though haha!) (Thats 1000 kilograms)

  2. Same, I am now 12 and my acne is putting me down alot. I feel like the odd one out. Some boy said something about my spots. Some other people aswell asking do u wask your face and stuff like that. I’ll just wait until I have perfect skin in the older years. I’ll be laughing at them once they go through this stage. It’s called puberty. Ever heard of it?
