Most of the time, when people talk aboutacne treatmentand acne products, they’re talking about the physical impact of acne breakouts and blemishes. Of course, the cause of acne as well as its most visible symptoms, inflamed blemishes, are both physical. But acne also has a mental and emotional impact on sufferers. As important as it is to find the most effective medications, topical products and treatments to get rid of your breakouts, it’s equally important to focus on Emotional Self Care™. The mental and emotional aspects of acne can be worse than the discomfort of blemishes.
Even for the most confident person, having to walk out into the world with your skin marred by breakouts, blemishes and even acne scarscan result in low self-esteem. You never feel as though you’re at your best or worthy of attention. In some cases, the low self-esteem associated with acne breakouts can lead to a desire to simply not go out in public. While it’s assumed that the low self-esteem associated with acne breakouts is primarily a symptom of acne in teenagers, that’s not the case at all. It is true that teenagers who experience acne breakouts may also be picked on or made fun of, which can make self-esteem problems worse. However, lowered self-esteem because of severe acne breakouts happens in adults, too. Adult acnehas the same physical and often mental and emotional symptoms as breakouts in younger people.
Low Self-Esteem Can Lead to Feelings of Alienation or Depression
Low self-esteem is a painful emotional condition to suffer, but it can lead to even worse conditions if not addressed and defeated. Most commonly, low self-esteem can lead to feelings of alienation, which often then escalate into feelings of depression. Particularly if you are prone to depression to begin with, acne breakouts can increase your feelings of being different and alone. It’s obviously important to remember that it’s only your skin, but if you’re feeling depressed or alone, be sure to take care of you. Seek the help of a qualified professional to help you deal with your feelings.
Remember, Everything Gets Better
No matter what’s causing your feelings of low self-esteem, alienation or depression, remember that everything in this world eventually gets better. In the case of acne breakouts, that’s especially true. With the right course of acne treatment products or medications and healthy lifestyle choices, you can improve your skin and eventually have clear, radiant skin. But it’s not just your complexion that gets better with time and attention. There’s no hurdle in this world so big that you can’t overcome it with the right information, support system and dedication.
