Having acne at any age is pretty traumatizing.

From having the occasional pimple here and there to developing severe, cystic acne, hormonal acne, or adult acne, it can make you avoid mirrors or cover your face any chance you get.

We have all suffered from some sort of acne in our lives, but there are some of us who literally can't remember having clear skin.

You mean there is a world where I wake up and have smooth, pimple-free skin? Who knew!?

Those who are lucky enough to not suffer from acne know that us zit warriors have tried everything under the sun to clear our skin. From DIY mud masks, Proactiv, birth control, face steamers, washing our face, not washing our face, etc.

At some point, you just have to accept that your skin is your skin and no matter how hard you try, your body just has to do its thing.

But, wear makeup if it makes you feel more confident, or don't wear makeup if you don't want to. Surround yourself in a judgment-free zone when it comes to your skin.

I know what you're thinking — yeah, it sucks. But, there are so many people out there who relate to the struggle. 

So, now we can all agree that acne at any age sucks. But, we can find ways to laugh about it, right?

Take a look at these funny, relatable acne quotes about pimples that you can use for your Instagram captions so you don't have to worry about facetuning your zits off.

Because whatever.
