My facial condition caused me a lot of stress. I previously experienced a severe case of acne that seemed so hard to get rid of. Everything in my life changed as I struggled with the facial problem.
Due to the severity of my acne, I lost all the confidence I had. I became so impatient and irritated about everything. My acne problem made me feel depressed. I thought I became less of a person because I felt like people always stared and talked about my condition. I isolated myself from people, and I avoided doing the things I used to do, even spending time with my husband. When my relationship drastically got affected, I knew I had to do something.
I blamed all sorts of food and tried every expensive skin cream out in the market. I used to go to a dermatologist and seek advice. However, that didn’t help at all. I just went through the days that my huge-sized pimples continuously popped up and I couldn’t stop them from coming out. So I tried searching for natural remedies online and found out that I was doing the wrong routines the whole time. I expected too much of a change in my facial skin when I didn’t try changing anything at all. So from there, I decided to make small adjustments in my life that helped me get through the struggle.
I thought that creams would help eliminate my acne because a health professional somehow recommended it. However, I figured out that not having enough sleep made it less effective. So when I started to change my sleeping patterns, I finally saw some little transformation on my skin.
When it comes to diet and nutrition, I avoided food that is said to cause acne breakouts such as peanuts, chocolates, cheese, and other oily food. However, I wasn’t able to value the importance of fruits and vegetables because I thought that merely avoiding the cause was more than enough. So when I managed to eat healthily, people started noticing a big difference in my face.
Aside from sleep and nutritional balance, I also tried enrolling in a gym class. I was hesitant to go to the gym before because I thought that too much sweating would trigger my acne. However, when I found out that exercising is beneficial in blood regulation, I immediately managed to try my first workout program. Aside from that, exercising made me realize how essential water is when it comes to body fluids.
After a couple of months of doing the same things over and over again, I somehow felt great about myself because my acne became less visible. My friends and family already noticed the fruits of my labor. Also, I felt happy that I was able to save my marriage too. I used it as an inspiration to get rid of the thing that probably “almost” ruined my relationship.
As of now, I am content and happy with my life. Gosh! It feels great to be me again.
