Is Acne Affecting Your Self-Esteem? Read This.
Posted By: Lindsay Schroeder Posted In: Acne Tips Date Posted: October 15th, 2010 Comments: 1

Does the following scenario sound familiar? You are on your first date and are beyond excited. But then, your mood gets dampened once you meet your date. He does not look too enthusiastic about seeing you. He smiles but he is likely just being polite. And you suspect that it has something to do with your acne.

It may sound strange to other people but for you, who is suffering from a low self-esteem due to acne, the problem is all too real. You would like to avoid meeting new people if you can simply because you feel unaccepted due to how your skin looks.

But do not worry – there is a way out of your problem.

How to Rebuild Your Self-Esteem

First, here’s the truth. A lot of people do not really care about how you look, even if you are suffering from a severe case of acne. What they care about is how you carry yourself and what kind of person you are. People like other people who have a healthy amount of self-confidence. Stop worrying about your acne when you are meeting new people – chances are that they are more interested in knowing you more than looking at your pimples the entire night.

Tips on Getting Rid of Acne

There are many ways by which you can fight acne for good. It all depends on what causes acne breakouts on your face in the first place.

It could be that you are stressed with your professional or educational life or stresses at home are bringing you down. Stress is proven to be a major factor in developing acne. You will help reduce your acne breakouts by living as stress-free of a life as possible. A healthy lifestyle will also help, including eating well, working out regularly, and drinking plenty of water. It’s also important to follow a proper skincare routine. It’s important to cleanse one’s face twice a day, morning and night, then use a toner, and finish up with an oil-free moisturizer to retain needed moisture in the skin. Following this routine will eliminate impurities from getting trapped in the pores.

What if you are suffering from a hormonal imbalance? This happens to many women who are in their 20s and older, including those who are expecting a child. Normally, all you need to do is to consult with your dermatologist or gynecologist who may prescribe pills that will help regulate your hormone levels. But if you are expecting a child, you can leave it as is, because your acne problem will go away after you give birth.

Remember that no matter what, you are beautiful inside and out. Your acne does not define you and it never will. Live a healthy life, learn to remove unneeded stresses from life, and consult with your doctor is you feel your skin is not getting better. There is a lot of life to live and you should be able to enjoy it – acne free.
