Acne: A New Perspective

Acne: A New Perspective
THE PUBERTY PORTAL: I am somewhat in touch with my emotions

Acne. Everyone’s had it. Whether it be the smallest bumps and blemishes to the biggest pimples and boils. We’ve all been there. And we all know how hard it can be dealing with acne. You’ve probably read one of those skin care magazines or pamphlets that advertise different ways for you to get rid of your “horrible” and/or “unwanted acne”. It’s like they want you to think that acne is some blood curdling disease. When in actuality it’s just as natural as the eyebrows and eyelashes on your face. 

Acne is a common condition, and it affects over 50 million people worldwide. For those of us that do have acne it can be very hard trying to get rid of it. With those home remedies, over the counter prescriptions, dermatologist recommendations, and those fancy creams that we see advertised literally everywhere it can be so hard learning to accept and appreciate acne.

Acne isn’t something that you should fear and hate. It’s something that you should love and appreciate. Your body, your features, and your traits are what make you different. Those are things that make you stand out from everyone else. Those are the things that you should be proud about- not the things that you should hate and hide. Embrace it.  Embrace all of those beautiful and wonderful features of yours.
