For some unfortunate people, acne chooses to stay on and never goes away even after their adolescence has passed. If you’re one of them, don’t despair. It’s not the end of the world.
For teenagers, acne not only ruins their look but also their self-esteem. Most teenagers go through a self-identity crisis in their adolescent years. The acne breakouts along with the peer pressure to behave in a specific way leads to increased stress.
All of this causes a grave impact on the child’s self-esteem. Therefore, it’s something that needs to be addressed at the earliest.
For most teenagers, acne comes and goes within a couple of weeks. It returns 2 – 3 times during the period of adolescences and disappears completely. If this hasn’t happened to you and you’ve been suffering from excess acne even past your teenage years, pay very close attention here.
Curing your acne condition involves two ways:
- Short-term Treatment
- Long-term Cure
Here’s an example…
If you were to suffer from viral fever, a doctor would recommend you antibiotics for dealing with the virus (short-term treatment) while advising you to maintain a healthy diet and a stress-free lifestyle for the next couple of days (long-term cure).
The same approach has to be followed with acne as well. Let’s face it… You can’t really attend many social events with acne all over your face.
So it’s always better to have a short-term cure in the form of a facial mask or a cream that is applied topically to ensure immediate and quick results while you work on a long-term cure by changing your diet and eliminating the things that are causing the acne in the first place.
Out of all the short-term cures for acne, the best and the most effective is a facial treatment from a beautician. You can do it on your own by using a facial mask.
But if you’ve never done it before or don’t have a friend who can watch over you, we recommend visiting a beautician and getting a facial treatment done. Explain your acne condition to him/her and have him/her closely examine it.
Depending on whether you’re suffering from blackheads or whiteheads, the beautician will apply a suitable facial mask and help provide you a short-term cure for your acne. You may not notice immediate results. Give it a few days for your acne to subside completely.
