It is easy to say love the skin you’re in when you have a flawless complexion. But how to love the skin you’re in when you have acne and don’t have self-confidence?
Acne is, unfortunately, much much more than just a skin condition. It can have serious social and psychological effects that can evolve into anger, frustration, and in the worst-case scenario, into a social phobia. And you don’t even have to experience all of that to know how harmful it can be to your mental health and overall quality of life.
Acne affects more than 96% of teens. Life would be easier if a huge percentage of those teens don’t have acne later in life. Acne in delicate years, ie. in puberty, is responsible for anxiety and mood disorder. It can also impact self-esteem which is why young people at that age often feel like they don’t deserve to love or to be loved. And that’s a big issue! Luckily, some of them finish their battle with acne and if they don’t have any scars, they may forget how painful it was to be that “ugly acne kid”. But still…
Acne in adulthood can be a heavier psychosocial burden. Namely, adults with acne sometimes just can’t handle it because they consider it as a skin condition they should get over a long time ago. When you have acne in your 30s or 40s, you’re going to feel like that unhappy kid (again) who was always an object of ridicule and that just isn’t funny.
According to a recent study, more people who have acne are unemployed than people who do not have acne. Also, adults with acne find it hard to form new relationships and you know how finding new friends or partners becomes even harder as you are getting older.
Do you know that acne can negatively affect the quality of life, similar to asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, and some rheumatic diseases? So, acne is not something that is often confused with poor hygiene. That’s why we have to teach, not only ourselves, but our kids too to be kind always and with everyone, of course, but especially with those who are fighting their painful battles. And fighting acne is one of those battles.
We live in a society that puts a great emphasis on appearance, and we are all aware of the tremendous impact of first impressions. Unfortunately, your first impression can’t be good if you are sad, angry, or frustrated because of acne.
