If you’re reading this, it is likely that you, like so much of the population in Chino Hills and elsewhere, are battling with acne and/or acne scars. Acne is so common that the in teenage years, if a young person does not get acne, it seems abnormal. However, just because developing acne is a part of becoming a teenager, it does not mean that it does not have an effect on a person’s self-esteem or on the way that they look at life.
The same thing is true for individuals who develop acne later in life or who continue to have acne past their teenage years. Acne can influence the way that a person sees themselves. Acne has an impact on the way that others see you. People, unfortunately, make unfair judgments about a person with acne. They may think that an individual who has acne is unclean, that they have a bad diet, or that they just don’t care about themselves. In most cases, none of these assumptions are true. Many individuals who have acne are focused on maintaining a healthy diet, caring for their skin, and doing whatever they can to make their acne disappear. But for them, the condition does not go away on its own.
Acne develops because of the imbalance in the skin’s oil glands. Hormones can cause the skin’s oil glands to produce too much oil. This, in turn, leads to your pores becoming plugged, which then leads to the development of acne. For most people in Chino Hills, acne outbreaks start right when they hit puberty, and they can keep on going until a person becomes an adult.
Acne comes in a wide range of varieties. You can have pimples, you can have bumps that are very deep and feel like boils, or you can develop whiteheads or blackheads. Although most people have acne on their face, acne can develop anywhere.
Pimples are very resilient. They have a life cycle of up to 12 weeks. For this reason, it is understandable why people feel disheartened when they develop pimples on their face. Unfortunately, the solutions that a person may have for addressing their acne, especially when they feel desperate, only make things worse. Many people will resort to squeezing their acne, pinching their acne, or picking at it. But this is only going to lead to infections, which can then lead to acne scars.
Acne scars can cause a person to suffer emotionally. This suffering stems, in part, from the emphasis that our society places on beauty and perfection. Adults who are battling with acne scars may feel like the battle they had with acne as a teenager never went away.
