Hii there... Acne is something that emerges out of the skin and is characterized by red pimples. A lot of people have this problem. I'm one among them. I used to sit down and cry every time someone asks me "why is your face like that? why is it full of pimples?" This happened everyday... At school, at family functions, at parties, even in public buses... i was so hurt. Even now i have the problem... but it has started subsiding... I've learned to accept it... i've learned to live with it... now i dont look odd to myself. Positive attitude is really important to handle situations.

I'vee been in this situation too as part of my adolesence. You are right that you might loose self-confidence because of the negative words you are hearing. But instead of just sitting down and cry, you must do something to overcome it. I am glad you are doing the same too. First is accepting it because eventually it will gone soon. You are right, having a positive attitude will help you gain your self confidence.

I've always had skin problems but I noticed they come up everytime I lack sleep and eat too much sweets. In my case I think acne cropping up is more related to candidiasis or something. What I do though is to exfoliate my skin regularly and this always works well for me. I rarely get acne these days because of constant exfoliation.

I have suffered with my skin for a long time, and I have to say that I am just about getting on top of it now and enjoying having it a lot clearer than it has ever been in the past. One of the things that I have enjoyed doing is drinking a lot of water, which is free, but can have a huge impact on your skin. Ensure that you have a regular skin care routine and use soaps that are not perfumed and that are suitable for sensitive skin. This should mean that you're able to prevent your skin from breaking out and you will be able to get on top of you skin condition.
