Ach No...Not Acne!

The teen years are tough for us all. There’s the hormones and heartbreaks. And then there’s the acne. Arguably the worst of all. The universe decides to give us more spots than ever, at the time when our appearance is most important. What a joke. To get some idea of the extent of acne, take note that 8 out of 10 teens develop the condition. Scary when you think about it. But, the facts alone don't give an idea of how much acne can affect your life. There’s the self-conscious factor, of course. Then, there’s the abuse other kids hurl at you. Worst of all, there’s the long-lasting implications.

Despite the fact that most teen acne settles once your hormones do, acne never leaves you. Why? Because of the scars, of course. You forever have horrible reminders that your face once turned into its own life-force. Not only does this remind you of a time you’d rather forget, but it can also keep those self-conscious feelings alive. That’s why we’re going to look at a few ways to kiss goodbye to acne once and for all.

The Miracle Creams 
As acne is such a widespread issue, there are many high-street creams which promise to cure the scarring. Something like the Garnier Anti-Imperfections Roll On is affordable, and promises to reduce the appearance of scars. And, there are many other options you can choose from if that one doesn’t appeal. The majority of these creams work by stimulating cell growth in your skin. It may not be enough to heal deep-set scars altogether, but it'll go some way towards reducing visibility. If you don’t get along with one option, don’t hesitate to try another. They all work in slightly different ways, after all.

The Next Level
If the high-street creams aren’t doing the job, you may want to take more extreme action. You could speak to your doctor about medical creams which may have more of an impact. Or, you might want to go down a cosmetic route. That’s not to say you need to go under the knife. There are many dermatology treatments which could help, from microdermabrasion to laser skin resurfacing. You can find out more at and other surgeries like them. If you’ve never considered this before, don’t hesitate to take a look and see what’s on offer. These treatments aren’t as invasive as you might think.

The Right Foundation 
Okay, a foundation isn’t going to cure the issue. But, it will go a long way towards building your confidence while you seek treatment. Under a heavy-duty foundation, your scars shouldn’t show at all. Of course, it’s important you take time finding the right foundation for you. Some are going to be more effective than others.
