Acne’s Not Just A Physical Problem
There’s More To Acne Than The Zits
Beauty may only be skin deep, but acne goes much, much deeper. Acne doesn’t just hurt on the outside; it hurts on the inside too. People can be cruel and unfortunately, acne sufferers sometimes bear the brunt of acne-related jokes. This can lead to insecurities and feelings of low self worth. If this applies to you, there are some things you need to remember.
Keep It In Perspective
Acne is a condition you are currently fighting, it’s not something that defines you anymore than the flu is something that defines someone who is under the weather. Don’t fall prey to the emotional havoc acne would wreck on you. Remember, this is only temporary and someday soon you will have acne-free skin.
Ignore The Criticism
When you have acne, you need to let comments roll off your back like water rolls off a duck. If someone asks you about your skin, they’re being downright rude and if a child points something out, their parents obviously didn’t teach them manners. That being said, it’s pretty obvious that if someone does say something about your skin, it’s them with the issue – not you.
Remember, one day you’ll have acne-free skin and unless the rude people of the earth turn from their wicked ways, they’ll still be flawed once you have overcome your challenges.
