Introduction And Background
It is of utmost importance to maintain a good skin nowadays, especially with the beauty on the outside being more important than on the inside. We are most concerned about our skin and it only shows even more when we go to the departmental store. There are more types of creams and lotions and face washes than there are anything else! You can only begin to imagine what type of stuff you want for your skin and there it is on the stand in five different companies to choose from. However, this makes the job easier for you, not more difficult, if you just know some specifics of your skin.
The Acne Problems
We all know about acne. As said above, the creams available; half of them are for fighting off acne or preventing it in the first place. Acne is a skin condition which hits more than eighty percent of the teenagers worldwide, especially in the United States and Canada. It can occur due to hormonal changes in the body, due to stress or due to clogged pores of the skin or neglect of hygiene overall. There are many reasons why one can get acne. It can also happen because of genetics. If your parents had it and even your grandparents had it, chances are high that you might have it especially if it is evident in a sibling.
Psychological Problems Of Acne
The thing with acne is, it not only ruins you from the outside but it also takes you from the inside. Many of those who have acne are not even adults yet and they cannot handle the stress of facing society with what they think is a disfigured face. And the meanness of children nowadays does not make the job any easier for them. Even adults who have acne find it hard to come out in public. Their self-confidence is lowered immensely and they feel very unsure of themselves. It even leads into depression. In extreme cases, when the acne becomes a real problem and leaves scars on the face, sometimes the thought of suicide even comes into mind! This can be traumatic. One should know that acne can be cured before going into the realm of self loathing of any sort.
Acne Can Be Cured
Yes, acne can be cured. Please, those of you who have acne, do not think that your skin can never get back to normal. It can. All you need to do is stop worrying about it so much and get started on the perfect treatment process. As soon as you start treating your skin, youâ€™ll quickly be on the road to recovery. The road of recovery is not short. It takes a long time to heal the skin and one has to be really patient.
Of Courage And Of Confidenceâ€¦
These two are the main elements behind the fight of acne. You have to be courageous to face the society while treating your acne. It will be hard but it will ease the stress. And remember, the stress only brings hormones that further aggravates acne and the skin! Thus, courage is very important. It makes you brighter and fresher too and can only speed up the process of fighting off acne. The same goes for confidence. If you are not confident of yourself and very unsure about the treatment, chances are that you will not do it properly. You will not treat yourself in the correct manner and will be careless about it all, again depleting into the world of self loathing and pessimism. Confidence and courage go hand in hand and believe me when I say this; it is very important for internal well being to fight off acne.
How Long Does It Take?
As mentioned above, treating acne does take its time. You cannot expect it to get better in just a day or a week. It can take several weeks for the treatment to sink in. But you need to be patient and confident that it will work along with showing courage in public about your skin condition. Aside from it helping you, your take on the situation will also give confidence to other who have the same skin condition. And remember, it can speed up the process if your hormones are balanced from the inside and you are not taking a lot of stress about the entire scenario.
Some parents take their children to a psychologist or a counselor if they feel that the little ones are unable to handle the acne situation. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, it will only do the child good. They will understand then that having acne is not the end of the world and they need to be strong to deal with it.
