Evidently this week is the week for me to tackle all things embarrassing that can happen to people as they grow and change throughout life. Monday was all about bladder leakage (if you missed that be sure to check it out here….it’s really a great story), and today we’re going to talk about acne. Everyone hates it, but the majority of us have to deal with it to some degree for various reasons throughout the years.
It’s no secret that I’ve battled adult acne since my daughter was born. Sometimes it’s better than others, but I don’t think there’s been a day in the last 4 years that I could say I had a completely clear complexion. Now my son, almost 13 is starting to experience skin problems that go along with that age. Nothing horrible, but I’m hoping it doesn’t get to that point because kids can be mean, but enough that it’s time we start discussing the changes he’s going to endure over the next few years. I’ve been trying to explain to him the importance of keeping his face clean and also researching what products are out there should it be necessary to use them. What works for me may not work for him so I think it’s important to see what’s out there and what the differences between products are and that’s exactly Facingacne.com has done.
Facingacne.com is all about providing acne sufferers with scientific information on this loathed, but common skin condition. Whether we like it or not, we are judged by our appearance. We may not want to think that as a society we’re that vain, but we really are to some extent. Acne can make you uncomfortable around other people and as an adult acne sufferer, it can also impact intimacy. I know, not the first thoght in your head when you think about skin condition righ? But it’s try, if you’re embarrassed about the way your skin looks, how could that not have an impact. Sadly, first impressions are key in the professional environment as well and as a result, acne can even even have a negative impact opportunities there. We try to minimize it, especially to our kids who are already in such a fragile state of measuring their self-esteem, but when you think about it, it really is a big deal, especially to those who suffer from it.
Since acne is such a serious matter, the Facingacne.com site was created by those with a passion to help acne sufferers find a solution to their problems in a manner that is safe adn effective. The information shared on the site includes reviews of popular acne products and a comprehensive skin type test. I personally have used a very popular acne product on and off for years so you can imagine my surprise when I saw the review here, indicating that may not be the best option for me and that there were other methods out there that might give me better results.
