Why You Can Be Thankful for Your Struggle with Acne

Why You Can Be Thankful for Your Struggle with Acne

These thoughts come to you as a message from the heart of our team to each and every one of our clients and potential clients fighting for clear skin right now. It also comes with our pledge that we are with you every step of the way so together we may turn a promise of clear skin into a reality. Stress is a horrible feeling no matter what time of year it is, but it's especially horrible around the holidays when it tends to creep up on us and keep us from getting the most out of family time.  Read on to turn your thought process around, and get the most out of this holiday season.


As with any struggle in life, it can be difficult to see what might be gained from struggling. Fighting acne is no different, and in fact, there is plenty to be gained.

For starters, acne doesn't develop in one day or even in one week, so it's unlikely to disappear in 1-2 weeks either. The more serious your acne is, the longer it will take for your skin to improve and the higher the dose of AcnEase® you may need. During this time, it is absolutely necessary to keep up a positive attitude. Keeping hope alive and your spirits up not only makes your daily routine easier but it will also help you to maintain an overall healthy and optimistic outlook in many other aspects of your life.


In our culture, appearance is an essential component of self-perception and often a condition for social acceptance. Dealing with acne during any life stage is tough to do, but you may want to keep in mind that doing so will give you an amazing strength to deal with other adversities as well. 

So do not forget to align yourself with positive friends and acquaintances, look for a "support group" comprised of those who share a specific interest or passion with you, and share your emotions with others. It'll do wonders for increasing your emotional strength and building your self-confidence!

The struggle with acne can be a long one and will certainly require patience and commitment.For example, you need at least one full month to truly benefit from AcnEase®, and for those with chronic and severe acne, two months (or more) of consistent use may be necessary. But, as your skin gradually improves and you finally get rid of your acne, you'll have learned the value of perseverance in attaining your goals.

There is a lot of information on the subject of acne, but this often makes decision making more confusing, especially when you have toothpaste zit solution listed beside oral contraceptives and antibiotics. In addition, many marketers take advantage of vulnerable customers, making claims that have no justification, providing insufficient and incomplete information, and over-promising results. In some instances when potential side effects are hidden or not explained, products may actually be harmful, too (e.g., Accutane or Diane-35). Knowledge is power, so it's important that you arm yourself with this power by doing research about what works best for your body, such as proper nutrition and skincare. As a result, you'll come out of this battle not only with clearer skin but also with a much deeper knowledge of your body and health.


You've probably discovered firsthand how helpful it is to learn about the experiences of other acne sufferers. Due to your own life experience, you're now equipped with a compassion that will help you reach out to others in your situation. This compassion will hopefully apply not only to those with acne but also to those who experience other misfortunes.

Last but not least, when all your efforts finally pay off, and you finally enjoy clear skin, you will experience a kind of joy that is unique to those who overcome a long-term struggle and WIN. The reward of an acne-free, healthy complexion is waiting for you. All you have to do is take control of your treatment and use that knowledge and power to make decisions that truly suit you best.  

With a Promise of Clear Skin,
