For most, Acne is temporary; just a part of growing up.

But, there are those that live with Chronic Acne and problem skin every day. And, no matter what they do, no matter how hard they try, it usually gets much worse before it gets better.

And then there’s the media, that showcase their warped ideas of what “perfect” and “beautiful” looks like.  It’s no wonder so many women with problem skin find themselves anxious and depressed. Today we’re going to talk about the 5 lies women with Acne and problem skin tell themselves.

I did this to myself. 

So untrue. Unfortunately, there are times when acne just picks you. Most often it has nothing to do with the way you care for your skin or with the food choices you make.

Everyone is looking at my skin.

It doesn’t matter who you are, there’s always going to be someone who loves to stare, period. But, when you live with problem skin you’re extra sensitive about how you look, and it can feel like all eyes are on you. Remember that even if they do look, they probably don’t see you the way you see yourself. Keep in mind you’re your harshest critic!

My skin will always look this way.

Probably not. Keep in mind your problem skin didn’t manifest itself overnight, so it makes sense the solution won’t happen that soon either. Remember, everyone’s skin is different. What works for one may not work for the other. It’s all about finding the right solution for you, and sometimes that can take time to discover.

My skin will never look as good as hers

Not so fast! You have no idea what she’s hiding!

The beauty of natural mineral makeup is that it’s possible to look flawlessly natural while allowing your skin to heal at the same time. Regular makeup can’t do that! In fact, when your skin breaks out, the last thing you want to do is cover it with makeup, because the majority of the ingredients found in traditional makeup can make your problem skin even more of a problem.
