Hi readers. I got a mail yesterday about IndiBlogger’s first contest of 2015. I’ve been a member of IndiBlogger for a while, but I’m not active there even though I always get notified about the contests or HappyHours stuff happening over there.
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!
