How to Boost Your Confidence if you Have Acne March 18 2017, 0 Comments

Have you ever looked at the mirror and thought to yourself that you are probably the ugliest person to live on this planet? I know I have. Having acne, especially in your teenage years, when you are still finding out who you are and feeling the pressure to ‘fit in’, can be pretty tough. But even if you feel this way, there are ways to become more confident in yourself and the way you look. Maybe the most important thing you can do is to realize that there is much more to you than your appearance and that your acne, or any flaw you have really, doesn’t define the person that you are. This is a very broad topic and I am not going to talk about it today, but instead - give you 5 practical tips on how to boost your confidence.

Exercise - Physical exercise can massively improve your happiness, energy levels, health, strength, appearance, sleep quality and so much more! Training regularly is one of the best things you can do for yourself and seeing the progress you make can massively boost your confidence. Find a sport that you like and make a plan that you can follow. Going to the gym once a week for an hour is way better than deciding to go 3 times a week, and in reality - not going even once.

Sleep, sleep, sleep - I know you’ve heard that a lot, but trust me - sleep isn’t just for the newborn babies. There is a reason people say ‘beauty sleep’. Personally, I can see a great difference in my appearance, particularly the appearance of my skin, on the days where I got just enough sleep and the days that I slept for a few hours less. You look better, feel better and consequently - your confidence is better!

Makeup - OK girls, real talk here. A little makeup never hurt anybody. Done right, it can hide your bad breakout, highlight your strong features and overall make you feel better about yourself. If you are not very confident in your make-up applying skills - Youtube is a great place to start. There are tons of tutorials on how to cover acne, scars, dark circles and make it look as if you have flawless skin.

Work with what you have - As I like to say: You can’t have everything. We all have good and bad sides. While you can’t always change the things you don’t like about yourself, you can use the rest to your advantage. Think about what you DO like about yourself - your hair, legs, eyes, nails, arms, curves. Wear clothes that flatter your body. Take care of your hair. Paint your nails. Have a style. Improve what you can.

Smile - This is one of the most attractive traits a person can have. Smile at the other people and you will notice how they do the same. If people feel good around you, there is a great chance they will like you too.

Don’t let your Acne rule your life. There is more to you than your skin. Go out, be confident, and conquer the world!
