It’s not a secret: for many people who suffer from acne, this skin disease affects more than their appearance.
Acne can take a toll on many areas of one’s life, overall worsening how you feel about life in general.
For many people, taking a look at the mirror every day becomes a nightmare. There you are, about to wash your face…
And you are reminded of your condition by those red crates on your face.
As soon as your eyes meet them all over again, the frown on your face deepens, and what started as a regular, maybe even pleasant day, turns into what can be considered your normality: a race with your acne to show who’s boss.
You turn to makeup as a solution, trying to hide it through the heaviest foundations and concealers…
But, throughout the day, the makeup fades, and you either have to reapply, running to the bathroom to take out your makeup purse or, if you can’t do that, you have to live with the thought of having your breakout available for everyone’s eyes to see.
It’s been proven by many researchers: Studies show that negative emotional reactions are greater in acne sufferers than people with other medical problems.
Acne sufferers, in fact, experience a very pessimistic inner dialogue: How often do you find yourself thinking words like “awful”, “terrible”, “unfair” or “can’t stand it”?
And the worse thing is: Acne nurtures stress and negativity, and those foster further acne development.
Basically, it’s a snake biting its own tongue, and the cycle never really ends…
Just like never ending seems to be the damage of this condition to yourself-image and self-esteem, to the point that even social situations become plagued by pessimistic thoughts.
So why is it that, even if they know acne sufferers have it worse, they aren’t telling you that a solution has been found?
Up to now, in fact, treating acne seemed impossible.
Using makeup as a cover-up is just that: a way to create an illusion, while the problem is still there for you to see.
And while there’s surely no shortage of options… Price ranges seem unwavering and too expensive.
Acne treatments at SPAs and professional salons are incredibly pricey because Big Pharma has many sketchy reasons to charge over $500 for an acne face cleanser.
