How acne affects your mood....

Now I don't know about you but acne really affects my mood, my confidence and effectively my happiness. I see so many girls around me with low self esteem and low confidence because of their skin and plastering more and more makeup to cover it or using extremely harsh chemicals to try and combat it. I am one of those people. My skin has got so much better since 2015 but I am still so conscious about how my skin looks, and whether my skin is clear or not, and the amount of spots or scars I have. When I had lots of acne I would be so self conscious that people were looking at my spots instead of me and that had a huge impact on how I felt about myself, I felt ugly.

I am constantly learning about the skin and it's so hard to know what to use, when to use it and what products to use alongside each other. As I have said in previous posts, I knew nothing about the skin until starting to work at a skin clinic, I also learnt a lot more about my body, healthy eating and hormones etc. I thought I ate regularly healthy but I then learnt what foods would cause a breakout and what wouldn't. I spent a great deal of money to get the skin I desired, clear skin, and my mood and confidence grew and grew. Now I kind of feel like i'm back to square one, not entirely as it is a lot better, but it is so disheartening to see acne and scars back again!! Why won't they leave me alone?!

Contraceptive pills, depending on what you are taking can have a huge impact on moods, skin and weight and trying to find the right one isn't that easy. It's crazy how acne can cause whirlwinds of emotions, stress and unhappiness. But don't worry, we will get there! Think positively, and clear skin will finally happen!

 Photo number one is when I first had acne and started to have skin peels. The second photo is how much my skin cleared up after using the right products and treatments to combat acne! The third picture is my skin right now, a little stressed out and hormonal, nowhere near as bad as photo number one, but still not as good as it could be.

Do you suffer with acne? How does it make you feel?
