Teenagers are already at a time in their lives when they are hyper-aware of their appearance, and that awareness can impact how they feel about themselves. Skin riddled with acne and acne scars can make anyone more self-conscious. Having a lot of acne can cause a teen to be withdrawn and have little self-confidence. Additionally, high school can be a rough time with many toxic people. Teens can be ruthless when mocking each other or treating each other with little respect and love. A teen can be bullied for years over their skin condition, impacting their confidence and personal relationships.
Here are three ways clear skin can help your teen regain confidence.
Having clear skin isn’t just about the lack of acne. Having clear skin is having that healthy glow that attracts people to you. Plant based skincare can provide your skin with the vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants your skin needs to look and feel radiant. Skincare products made with natural ingredients like essential oils, aloe vera, and herbs are free of irritants that can cause additional problems. Having healthy skin doesn’t just look good: It feels good. Your teen will feel good with or without makeup. Too often, teens use makeup to cover up acne, which only worsens the condition and often doesn’t help, as the problem is still apparent. When a teen is happy, they also have a stronger glow. Getting clear skin can make your teen feel more satisfied with their appearance, which can significantly impact their self-esteem.
When teens feel better about their looks, they feel better about themselves. With more confidence, they will tackle projects and goals that they may not have thought they could handle otherwise. For example, when approaching college scholarship organizations, they will be mentally prepared to advocate for themselves and state why they deserve scholarship money to get them through college. They’ll also feel more confident discussing what they want to do with their lives and in their careers.
Having a better self-image will help as your teen pursues scholarships, competitions, and other achievements. They’ll be less afraid of public speaking or creative endeavors. A better self-image is good for their mental health, as they will be more willing to try new things and take risks. The fear of failures and successes often goes back to confidence and self-image. If teens believe they can accomplish something, they will be more likely to try without allowing fear to stop them.
Teens who have a lot of confidence present themselves as stronger. Appearing strong will tell others that the teen is confident in themself and can take on challenges. This isn’t to say teens who have acne can’t have a strong presence. However, if your teen is hyper-aware of it and feels insecure because of it, they will not present themselves powerfully. The same could be true if they feel self-conscious about what they are wearing or a stain on their shirt. When their attention is elsewhere, they will not present well when speaking to others. They may come off as being distracted or too timid.
Getting and maintaining clear skin can do a lot for a teen’s confidence. Clear skin can make them appear happier and more self-assured and present themself with strength and confidence that will impress the people they are talking to. Teens are faced with a variety of challenges that can impact how they see themselves. Fixing the fixable challenges will give them the strength to face the challenges they have to endure. Learning how to deal with things that are beyond their control is part of growing up and becoming a confident, healthy adult.
