How Acne Affects Self Esteem

How Acne Affects Self Esteem

Humans are visual creatures, meaning our society and culture puts a big emphasis on appearance. While we have six senses, sight is the dominant one – by a lot. After all, the phrase is love at first sight, not love at first touch. With this, how someone feels about their appearance can have a big effect on their self esteem and confidence. One of the most common confidence detractors that we’ve all dealt with at some point in our lives is acne. While thought to be a trivial problem, acne can actually have big, negative effects on self esteem and confidence.

This problem has been exacerbated over the last year with masking being required when out in public by many places and face-to-face Zoom calls becoming the norm for how companies do business and replacing in person learning due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Acne breakouts from wearing a facemask aren’t uncommon and have caused an uptick in acne over the past year, adding to the stress many have felt from the pandemic. Pandemic aside, acne on its own can make a person feel depressed, angry, anxious, and even overwhelmed regardless of their age. These feelings can be strong enough to prevent a person from doing the things they really want to do and lead to a sense of guilt or shame due to the myths surrounding how and why acne might form. For such a universal problem many of us deal with it still can be hard to talk about it or seek help.

There are a lot of products on the market that claim to combat acne and boost your confidence and self esteem but none are as effective and as Oxygenetix’s Acne Control Hydro-Matrix and Acne Control Foundation.
