Acne story of my life & how I dealt with it

Pimple/Acne is one problem we have always faced in our life at one point or the other. As a teenager I had lot of acne on my skin - ohh!! yes you heard that right!! During my teens which was the 90's we never had so many brands & products that we could buy, test & also we never had Internet until the year 2000. The only thing I knew that multani mitti (fuller's earth) mixed with rose water was enough to reduce the problem.



Today's teenagers are lucky as there are a host of products in the market including one from Garnier which is known to reduce the occurence of acne.Hormonal problems is the major reason for teen acne as the body goes through a lot of changes. Oily skin is also one of the reasons for which you need to use the right products like a face wash, scrub & pack meant exclusively for oily skin.



When I was a teenager I had lots of acne on my face which sometimes made me feel under confident about myself. Thankfully the time I was in college people were not so particular until now where people put a lot of effort in looking good now a days which is a good thing. There are teenagers who feel quite under confident due to this problem which also affects them personally. Also if you are working & you know you have an important meeting or presentation one would definitely cringe & be under confident due to that one pimple on the face which would spoil the whole look.

The marks that acne would leave on my face would bother me more but I always remembered the golden rule to never pop a pimple. Thankfully over the years the problem has almost gone but of course we women always get a pimple here & there. I am more particular about my skin now more so I am a beauty blogger. I have used the Garnier Neem Active Face Wash in the past & it really helped me in combating the problem to a large extent. Have you tried the Garnier Pure Active Neem  face wash yet??

  7. In my younger years, I too suffered from acne. In fact, it's only been in the last few years that it's left me. My learning the importance of good skin care has helped me considerably in this regard. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
