During the times of healing the acne health condition. I practiced mindfulness techniques with the whole situation including the skin care products I was using the food I was avoiding and the food I was eating to try and clear my skin, I tried to have a non judgmental approach by using mindfulness. I had also stopped putting expectations on my skin and the acne I stopped saying things like" this acne will be gone in 3 weeks" or " I know this product is going to clear my skin in a months time" or looking ahead and dreaming and thinking this acne will be gone by this point in my life. I stopped putting expectations on my skin demanding all these things from it and decided to think I don't know how my skins gonna be in a months time but I will still love my appearance unconditionally so I took the pressure off myself I did this becuase In previous times I did wish the acne was gone and it stayed and I would become disappointed so I tried a new approach of not looking ahead to the future and my skin and just tried to be mindful and in the present moment. However I did have faith that the acne may go away but I wasn't going to take it by force and I would often just leave it to god the acne eventually went away but I did a lot to try not to worry about it so much.

During the times of having severe acne and even without. I would practice unconditional love of my Appearance no matter how I looked I would try techniques to ease my mind I would try to be not attached to my appearance even if I was having a good face day I would say to myself "It doesn't matter if its a good face day or a bad one Im not attached to the outcome of my appearance so there is no comparison I will love myself either way" or I would say things like " I would like to have nice skin but if it doesn't happen I will still love my appearance and myself and feel whole within" So I could still have confidence and not give myself such a hard time about my appearance I would also think things like it doesn't matter what other people think about my appearance all that matters is how I feel about the way I look. And I would try to work on my confidence.
