Appearance Affects Teen’s Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem
It wasn’t all that long ago that you may have experienced the embarrassment and anxiety caused by an outbreak of acne or were horrified at unwanted hair popping up in the wrong places. The teen years are important formative years, affecting self-confidence and self-esteem in ways that may have impacts for many years. A teen with even a moderate problem with acne or other skin problems may face teasing and even bullying from peers. When self-esteem suffers, the enjoyment of the carefree teen years are often overcome with embarrassment and stress. This can even affect academic progress and inhibit the growth of healthy social interactions.
There are many products on the market directed at the skin problems of teens, yet over-the-counter products often don’t produce the results they promise. Your family physician may prescribe antibiotic treatments for moderate to severe acne, but these treatments can have serious side effects.
