10. Don’t hide inside
Don’t spend your evenings living the “if only” scenarios: if only my skin wasn’t this bad, I’d go out. Every moment of your life is precious, and you won’t get them back! So don’t waste time wishing things were different. Get out there and live anyway!
11. Have a treatment plan
Take a step in the right direction and develop a healthy skin treatment plan. Once you have a plan of action, and start your new skin-care ritual, you’ll feel more confident and in control.
12. Talk it out
Do you have one friend you can confide in about how you feel? Then talk to him or her when you’re not feeling very confident cause of your pimples. Chances are, they’ve felt the same way, and might be able to talk you into feeling a little better.
See? It’s completely possible to be confident even with a bad case of acne. My favorite joke when my skin’s not the best? I complain that it’s not fair that I have to worry about wrinkles and acne at the same time! How do you keep your confidence when you’ve got pimples? What works best for you? Please let me know… and share your little jokes, too!
