For starters, this is something I've been struggling with for years, even now, when my acne is under control. it's like I think back to when it was at its worst, and emotionally it's like I'm back there, sad and hopeless all over again. I don't think people who've never suffered from acne know what it's like. It's not a superficial thing, which is something I got told again and again, especially by family. So I'm curious to know how others deal with it. It's been helping me to treat my acne and live a healthy lifestyle (so I know I'm doing everything I can to get beautiful skin again) but throughout the day I don't THINK about myself as having acne. That way I don't FEEL like everyone else is looking at me that way. It's crazy how psychological it all is sometimes!
Anyway, I also wanted to share a link to a free webinar about this next Tuesday. They're talking about how to empower yourself to overcome the emotional effects of acne. And even if you don't suffer from emotional effects you still get a personalized plan for how to break the cycle of acne.
