This is the first time that I’m participating in any contest organized by IndiBlogger, I hope I don’t break any rules. My writing skills are also not that great.
Soooo the topic of this contest isss.. ” Write a blog post on the common problems you face when it comes to Pimples and the effect it has on your everyday life “
|Perfectly describes my face! RF image|
Okay, few minutes before reading this E-mail I had actually scratched my pimple which has magically appeared just below my right eyebrow 😐 and yeah my glasses are always there on my nose to make the things worse! I wear glasses (24×7), you can’t imagine that pain when your pimple gets hit by the corners of your glasses.
I remember when I was a kid, I used to laugh at those people who were so concerned about these tiny little pimples, I thought there was nothing to worry about them because they just go away with time. When I grew up I realised that I was so wrong, They do disappear in a while, but after giving you loads of pain as well as many embarrassing situations, Just like I had one during last Diwali when my face decided it’s the right time for an acne breakout. Those awkward stares from people when they notice you’ve a pimple on your nose…. it’s an unforgettable experience!
Once a 6 year old asked me if I got hit on my face when he saw my pimples, I just giggled and said no. It was funny but embarrassing at the same time.
I know that having pimples is a very natural thing, especially in the teenage years, it’s mostly because of hormonal changes. There are some more reasons for the same, Example – stress, dirt & oil on face, unhealthy diet, not consuming sufficient amount of water, etc.
Well I have to write about “common problems I face when it comes to Pimples and the effect it has on my everyday life…”
Okie dokie, I love writing in points instead of writing long essays so here it goes.
…common problems I face when I’m having pimples
■ Irritation – Nope, I’m not talking about skin irritation, it’s about how I feel when these tiny little bumps appear on my face.
■ Pain – I’ve mentioned above how I always get hurt when I unknowingly scratch/rub on a pimple or when my glasses hit on it. Glasses tend to make the skin around your nose oily and also clogs the pores, Thus, leading to painful zits.
I always try my best to give more attention towards the area around my nose but it doesn’t help! I can’t stop wearing myself, I can’t control acne either, you understand my problem?
■ Embarrassment – The first thing people notice on my face is always my pimple or it’s marks which leaves me embarrassed at times.
the effect it has on my everyday life…
■ Confidence level = 0
I don’t feel comfortable or confident enough with my pimply face!
■ Can’t use any type of cosmetic product because it may(will) make my acne worse. It’s hard for a makeup lover to stay away from makeup!
■ I don’t feel like going out of the house!! 🙁
By reading my post you can imagine how a pimple makes an impact on a person’s life.
If you’re in same boat as me, there are many products in the market which may help you to reduce/prevent acne, one of them is Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash, Honestly speaking, I have not tried this face wash yet, but I’m a big fan of Garnier products, that’s why I didn’t hesitate for a moment to participate in this contest. I’ve been using their BB cream regularly from a month or so and I’m loving it!

Hiya readers! You may have noticed my inactivity in last few days. It’s because I had lost access to my account which is linked to this blog. I had enabled two step verification few days back and it made me lose the access, ask me how?
First let me tell you what “2-step Verification” is
Two-step verification is a process involving
two subsequent but dependent stages to
check the identity of an entity trying to
access services in a computer or in a network
with just one factor or secret, whilst there is
no proof obtained that the bearer of the unit
is identical to the owner of the unit.
So if you want to enable 2 step verification on your Google account you will be asked to enter a verification code after you have entered your email id and password. That verification code will be sent to you via text message or voice mail, as per your choice.
If you lose access to your phone then there are fair chances that you may lose your account too! But here are some options which may help you to keep your account safe. I realized this after losing access to my account for 2 full days, especially when I have only 1 account with Administrator privileges for this blog!! After enabling 2 step verification I didn’t log out from Google Chrome browser on my phone, so it was the only place where I could use my account without a verification code unless I log out or clear cookies. I was testing something else so I had to clear cookies and I did it because I knew I can log back in whenever I want to with the help of verification text but Nope, I tried 1 Lac times but I didn’t receive any SMS containing the code! I have No idea if it was because of my carrier or Google, I kept trying but nothing happened, I even posted a query on Google forums but No one replied!! Then I thought I should finally submit a recovery form to Google which may takes 3 to 5 days to recover your account. I submitted the application with some basic information of my account and got this text on my phone seconds after it, the text says :-
Did you request that Google reset your password for ************@gmail.com? If not, check your email to find out how to STOP the reset.
And just after this text, I received another one which contained a verification code for login, I’m still wondering how it happened! Let it be I’m happy. 😀
But I don’t want the same to happen with my readers!! So I’m gonna sum up few precautions you should keep if you’re using 2 step verification on Google account, it may work with other services like Apple id or dropbox.
■ Keep 1 browser or device with that account logged. In this way you can turn of the 2 step verification from security settings just in case you lose your account.
■ Keep a set of “Backup codes” on your diary, physical diary! No one is gonna understand what it is so it will be safe there.
■ Use Google authenticator app. It’s available for Android and iOS but but but Don’t forget to keep your phone password-locked because anyone who gets access to your phone can get access to your account too.
■ Put two recovery numbers. If you have only one then you have to trust your friend or your parents on this!
■ Note down some information of your account like
– Day, Month and year when you created your account
- What apps you use with your Google account. Example – Calendar, Hangout, Gmail. Don’t forget to note down the month and year of their first use.
– Frequently contacted emails.
– Security question and it’s answer.
That’s it! If I find more information regarding this topic then I’ll update my post. 🙂
Enjoy the weekend and keep loving Google ♥
