We all love the warmer months of the Summer, lazing around on hot days, getting a little bit of colour on our pale winter skin, digging out our swimwear and heading down to the beach or lake for a swim…or do we?
For acne sufferers, summer brings with it a whole new set of confidence issues. Many acne sufferers not only have a problem with facial acne but with back and body acne also. In the cooler months of the year, although still causing discomfort, body acne does not cause the same self-esteem issues as facial acne does, simply because it can be easily hidden away under clothing.
However, when the summer months arrive and the warmth beckons us to strip down and enjoy the sun, sufferers of acne are faced with two options; to just go ahead and strip and don’t listen to the mindless idiots who poke fun or, avoid this mental torture and become the misfit who becomes a recluse and won’t come out until the sun goes down!
Not much of a choice is it?
There is always a third choice that should be considered, and that is to take some radical steps to rid yourself of acne once and for all.
You have probably tried and tested many treatments from your local pharmacy and you may even have opted for going with natural acne treatments and you may even have had a degree of success with them. But what happens when you stop taking the treatments? The acne comes back, right? The reason for this is that every acne treatment, whether concocted by the pharmaceutical companies or created by mother nature is only treating the surface condition, acne…and not what is causing the acne!
The term ‘cure for acne’ is often used to describe a treatment or a product but it is misleading. Think of it this way, you have been feeling anxious and because of this it has caused you to have a headache. You would normally take an aspirin or a paracetamol and 30 minutes later your headache would be gone.
Ask yourself this question, has the aspirin cured your problem or, cured a symptom of your problem?
Acne is a symptom, caused by something not being quite right within your body, an imbalance, and the only true cure for acne is to treat the cause. By fixing the imbalance, not only will your acne disappear but it will never come back. As well as your acne disappearing your general health will be vastly improved too.
Getting rid of your acne for good is not a quick fix and it will take quite a bit of effort and possibly some major lifestyle changes to achieve but the quality of life you will experience afterwards is priceless. Take action and be free of acne forever and start to enjoy the Summer instead of dreading it.
