Dear Tiff & Earl,

Lately, I’ve been getting extreme mask-cne. Nobody sees it because of my mask, but I know it is there and I don’t find it very attractive. How do I learn to find myself attractive again?

Dear Pimple Rick, 

Usually I have something witty to say, but not this time. Life’s too short to worry about appearances. The people that truly care about you will stick around no matter how you look. Learning to love yourself despite your imperfections is one of the most important things in life. Oh yeah, and remember to wash your mask. 



Dear Pimple Rick, 

Look yourself in the eyes and say, “You’re a champion. You got up today and you’re going to make the world a better place for it. Acne can’t stop this living, breathing legend.” Be your own biggest hype man. And honestly, having acne makes you human. You needed one imperfection to put you at the same level as the rest of us. But I’ve also heard Neutrogena works wonders.
