You’re probably breaking out right now. For your sake, I really hope you’re not, but if you’re like me, my boyfriend, seven of my friends, two of my co-workers, and the girl I overheard in the elevator this morning, then you’re currently breaking out. And unless you’ve been sleeping on a pizza for a week—which, let’s be honest, who leaves a pizza uneaten for more than five seconds—you probably don’t know why. Rather than troll the internet for some magical answer (it’s not Mercury in retrograde; just don’t), I asked dermatologist Mona Gohara to tell me why now, more than ever, you could be breaking out. And, unsurprisingly, her reasons have nothing to do with our solar system.
