Whether you’ve dealt with acne for years or are experiencing a major breakout for the first time, fighting acne can be a grueling process. Not only can using the wrong products be tough on your skin, but dealing with acne can also be tough on your confidence, self-esteem, and outlook on life. If your skin is impacting your confidence, follow these four stages of acne treatment to go from struggling to empowered.
Picture this: you wake up one morning, go to look in the mirror, and see those pesky breakouts again. You’re feeling low, and want to find a way to fix them. The realization that you have control over your skin and can take steps to soothe its irritation is the first step to a successful skincare recovery. Motivation is key to starting on the path to empowerment. If you are reading this blog, you’ve likely already reached this step.
Once you are ready to address your skincare needs, research ensues. Whether you take to Youtube, Google, or ask your peers, you’re likely digging through loads of information to find people with the same struggles. Wanting to diagnose the root cause of your breakouts is normal. However, take caution – misdiagnosing your own skin’s texture, irritation, and breakout type can lead to choosing the wrong products and make acne even worse.
