The skin is the symbol of our identity, the image of ourselves that we present to the world. Very often we find this problem in people who do not love, do not know how to love each other, who have low self-esteem (the most exposed are the shy and introspective). In fact, people are basically folded back on themselves, which is why acne often affects teenagers too demanding with themselves and easily experience feelings of shame.
Adolescence, in fact, is a critical developmental period as it crosses moods, evolutions, transformations that span many fields of existence: the everyday is painted in small challenges, tragedies, great achievements and bitter defeats. Those suffering from this skin disease usually fears and holds within himself his emotions. But when these are beyond the control and will “draw” on the skin, expressed in the language of the body everything is silent.
