Don’t Let it Smother Your Inner Beauty

When you stare at yourself in the mirror each morning what do you see? Do you see a kind person who treats others with respect? Do you see someone who goes out of their way to say and do nice things? Is the person staring back at you giving you a friendly smile? Does she look confident and as if she has all the answers? That’s what you should see when you look in the mirror, but if you are like many teens or even a few adults the only thing you see when you look in the mirror is a pimple on your forehead and a growing number of blackheads on your nose and chin.

It’s a reality that many who suffer from acne deal with. The person may feel great inside but when they see how they look to the outside world it can really knock your self-esteem.

Looking in the mirror can be hard when you don’t like what you see staring back. You might be a wonderful person on the inside but if all you can see are the blemishes life isn’t exactly perfect. Many acne sufferers have low self esteem and are afraid people will think less of them because they have a few imperfections on their face. They think those girls with the perfect complexion have all the answers but that’s not true. Teens with acne are worried boys won’t like them and that their friends will spend the day staring at their pimples rather than listening to what they have to say.

Teens and adults with acne will try every product available to try and reduce their acne even just a little bit. A total cure is what you want but you’d take an improvement any day of the week. They probably have a closet full of products that they tried but that just didn’t do the trick. Of course the best way to treat acne is to find a skin care regimen that works for your skin type. Beyond that feeling confident about yourself, looking for the good in things, and putting a bright smile on your face will do a lot to boost your confidence. If you look confident, smile, and treat others with respect they are more likely to remember you as a wonderful friend than the girl with the acne problem.

Often beauty is not about how your face looks but what’s inside. It might take you a while to get out of that funk and start looking at yourself with respect but in the end the hard work will pay off. You deserve to have a great life so don’t let acne get in the way. You need to show the world you’re as beautiful outside as you are inside.
