How cystic acne affects our emotions
I have noticed that most people talk about their cystic acne in a clinical sense, but don't really talk about the emotional toll their acne has on them.
Those of us who know what real cystic acne is are so frustrated because we know that washing the skin is not going to solve the problem.Â Those of us who have had acne for a while get even more frustrated when we realize that people are going to look at you as though you don't take care of yourself or you lack personal hygiene when in reality your about 20 times more free of germs than the next guy.
Unfortunate we live in a society where we should feel less secure about ourselves because our skin is bad. The weird thing is that supposedly 80% of the society suffers from cystic acne in adolescence. I have seen people with very mild acne react much stronger than people with worse acne though - and that shows how it does depend on the person generally.Â However, I have never encountered a soul who has cystic acne and is completely fine with it. It's frustrating to be encountered by those blessed with clear skin who tell you that all you need is to wash your face. Acne is much more than a fleeting teen affliction. It is in fact a disorder that really affect ones self-esteem, self-confidence, and happiness, to minimize this only serves to minimize the anguish that many suffer on a daily basis.
The solution for those bad feeling is not easy but you can still try to deal with it. You can have cystic acne and still enjoy your social life. Try to take it as if the acnes aren't there, and everyone else don't bother bout your acnes too when socializing.
