When we have bad skin as a teenager we are often comforted and told that we will “grow out of it.” Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. A clinical study revealed that 45 percent of women between the age of 21 and 30 have acne, and this extends well into midlife, with 12 percent of women between 40 and 50 being affected too.
We know what it feels like to have a face covered in pimples. It’s almost impossible to look in the mirror and leave the house feeling beautiful. That nagging knowledge is always there – whenever you speak to people, go out to parties, or go on a date. Over time, this constant idea of being “ugly” erodes your self-esteem and the condition of your skin can literally affect your entire life.
When you struggle with acne, it feels like it affects every aspect of your life. It’s embarrassing to go out, your skin feels sore, and your self-image takes a heavy knock. You may have tried other solutions before that have stripped your skin of its natural oils, left your face dry and flaking, or worse – with more pimples.
