Five (Emotional) Stages of Acne


Denial –

First breakout and you tell yourself that this is one off. You start telling yourself that I cannot be one of those acne teenagers. You start finding reasons such as eating junk food two days ago or travelling in auto rickshaw to rationalize why you got acne. You hope that they would go on their own. Head in the sand  mode activated!!



After couple of days you realize that they are not going away and you start consulting friends, dermatologists and beauticians and try many different remedies. But new acne keeping popping up and to make things worse, the old ones start leaving scares and enlarged pores of the size of lunar craters. Silence gives way to anger and frustration.


Depression –

You wonder whether anyone really has a lasting solution for acne or are all these anti-acne products are just marketing gimmicks? Anger gives way to depression and helpless -ness. You start losing hope and feel like giving up on everything.


Bargaining –

As you struggle to find a solution and somewhere deep inside start believing that that these little red bumps are going to stay with you forever and you begin to rationalize them. You relate with other sufferers that you pass by on the street.



A friend tells you about Aminu’s Clarifying Concentrate and Overnight Peel. You visit their website, talk to the skin experts, and find the courage to try a product again and give life another chance. Voila, you start seeing results within a couple of weeks. The frequency of breakouts reduces, pores begin to fill, and scars begin to fade. Suddenly, the sunshine starts to feel warmer, birds chirping sounds more beautiful, and you start dreaming about that perfect sun-kissed holiday in Paris.
