Skin Issues

We all have skin issues. You love who you are, but you just can’t get past that one facial imperfection that seems to shout back at you from the mirror. You are magnifying this imperfection. The people around you don’t see you that way. If you are fixated on an imperfection and use ugly terms like “turkey neck or peanut head” to describe yourself – it is time to love yourself enough to take action. Check out this list of the most common negative terms for skin complaints and possible treatment options.
