Were you among the 16 million (or roughly 17% of the 98 million) Filipinos who suffered from acne problems? Or is still suffering from one? This statistics came from the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) when it conducted an acne problem study about three years ago. And did you already tried one hundred and one products which promised clearer skin in no time? Or how about went through a lot of facial services with high hopes of a clearer skin? Sadly, though, these and more supposed solutions all the more made those zits bigger than ever.
Acne affects one’s confidence
Effective natural acne treatment
Having pimples may significantly affect one’s confidence. Those affected usually become shy and often, reclusive. It is because our society puts great emphasis on appearance and those with acne feel the pressure of everyone’s annoying stare.
PDS stressed those commonly affected by acne are teenagers between 10 to 18 years old. They usually complain of whiteheads and blackheads or red bumps which sometimes have pus. These nasty skin problems usually appear on the face, chest, back, and shoulders.
PDA dismissed the notion that acne develops because of dirt. It is mainly due to the clogging of pores and excess oil on the skin. A person with a family history of acne may likely suffer the same faith as his relatives. Some developed it by using products that may cause the skin to breakout. While others, especially women, acquire acne due to hormonal fluctuations which naturally occur in certain stages like puberty and childbirth. There are cases as well that acne becomes a side effect of a drug used to treat another disorder. An example is the use of steroids for asthma patients.
Now, PSST.Ph shares with you one home remedy that may help you combat that acne problem. More so, this natural acne treatment may help bring back that confidence acne once stole from you.
