I HAVE ACNE.
I, more specifically have Cystic Acne.
I was going to write a list about the annoying things with acne-but, to be honest, I feel like it’s been done. I’m not going to sit here and tell you it’s a beautiful addition, because, for me, I don’t enjoy it. I can tell you, that something such as that should not define you as a person, and doesn’t take away from your already standing beauty and worth.
That being said, I was trying to think of a phenomenal post to take it’s place.
I thought, maybe, I could do what helped my skin, but like most things, that changed, and eventually, I found certain products to be making it worse over time.
And then I decided, maybe, just maybe, I should get a little serious about acne. So I started thinking; what would be an interesting topic?
Well, let’s start off with the basic information on acne.
-Roughly 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 25 develope acne (DermNetNZ, Medical News Today).
-Acne has varying signs and symptoms, and the reasons behind why they happen.
-Mayo Clinic lists four major reasons for acne;
*Excess oil production
*Hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells
*Excess activity of a type of hormone (androgens)
-Acne appears more commonly on the upper body but is not limited to your facial area.
And with all this information, I started to realize; well, if acne’s so common, then how come all of the influencers I see don’t seem to have the same problems? Their skins remarkable, and granted, it might be make-up, but when the make-ups off, and they’re putting it on, what makes it…glow? What makes their skin so…perfect? If you will?
And then I realized, that Science literally has given us a reason for Self Care, and acne isn’t the only area.
This is where I want to start a new series-the scientific importance behind self-care, and why it’s important.
I’m excited to explore this, and see where this series takes us!
So, look forward to Friday’s, because they’re going to be very interesting, as we explore why you should be taking care of yourself; and how!
(I kid you not you’ve just experienced a written version on how I concoct an idea, because I didn’t have an idea about this until I concluded it).
Before I go though, I want to say, today’s post is sponsored by FabFitFun. I’m genuinely excited about this sponsor, as I find it corresponds quite well with today’s post, and this series.
