More than 2 years ago, a lifelong wish came true for 29-year-old Jenna Chandler when boyfriend Ruth went down on one knee to propose to her. And like every bride-to-be in the world, she wanted her big day to turn out perfect and to look her absolute best.
So instead of hiring a wedding planner, she took matters into her own hands. From working out the guest list to picking the right venue, everything about it was an uphill struggle. And the constant scrambling eventually took a toll on her.
As the big day drew closer, she started suffering from pre-wedding anxiety and this caused her to lose sleep and appetite. Mild acne soon developed around her chin and forehead but with the wedding heavy on her mind, she was quick to brush it off as just another of her usual breakouts.
Gradually, she witnessed a change to her condition. She was breaking out with a more severe form of acne known as cystic acne. It worsened when she couldn’t resist the urge to pop her own pimples. Squeezing them has caused bacteria to spread deeper, resulting in scarring, redness and inflammation.
