Skin disease is so unnatural, and so shameful!
Skin disease, do you ever talk about it? Did you know that approximately 1 third of the american population have skin problems? For Sweden it is one out of four. Skin disease in Europe is affecting 22.5 to 33% of the population.
It is even said that every individual, some time in her/his lifetime will be affected by some kind of skin condition!
What puzzles me is that there is so little talk about it.
I mean, in my eyes it is completely out of natures order that our bodys largest organ would be hunted by disease to that extent! When did this epidemic start? Why is this so? What can be done about it?
Sorry, too many and too big questions at the same time. 😉 But don’t you agree? This silence is od! Especially since our skin also has this super important social function. Or perhaps that is part of the answer. It is somewhat shameful not to have a perfect complexion.
How often is that phrase used to lure women to buy cosmetics? Get a flawless complexion with this cream, foundation, regimen or treatment. I’ve heard women spray their faces with hairspray after they put on their make up! You heard me right. HAIRSPRAY!! Just so they would appear “perfect” all through the day…
A question of shame
Yes I do think it is about shame. Just as wrinkles are shameful. Growing old makes your skin ugly and more prune to disease. Warts start to grow, discolorations show up. Desperately you try to rid yourselves of these signs of time going by.
What can you do? Be kind to yourself! Treat yourself in a better way. Eat better, it will show on you skin. Use better skins care. It will show on your skin. Raise your self esteem. It will show on your skin!
Tell me below, why do you think there is such a silence about skin disease?
