Running gave me a strong heart and lungs, but crappy skin.
To be fair, I can’t blame running completely for my newfound skin issues. I was lucky to have good skin in high school, so I suppose some of it might be karma. I’m sure my mid-thirties hormones shoulder some of the responsibility too.
Either way, my once-smooth face is suddenly covered with lumps, bumps, and whiteheads. I’ve tried my fair share of, and spent a small fortune on, acne-fighting products. I’m happy to share my wealth of knowledge with all of you here at Salty Nation, to hopefully spare you a little aggravation with running zits.
