Being bullied is not as rare as you may think. The Annual Bullying Survey 2018 in partnership with 36 schools and colleges across the UK has found that 45% of young people experience bullying before the age of 18.

Of course, these days bullying doesn’t only happen at school. As technology is now a part of teenagers’ lives, bullies can target individuals by text messages and via social media. Avoiding your bullies is far more difficult in 2018.

Get Support

It is of the upmost importance you enlist the support of friends and family. Be open and let them know how you feel and how they can help. The worst thing you can do is alienate yourself. Don’t forget, people care about you and will want to be a support to you.

Skincare

Follow a good skin care routine to maintain skin health. Always choose non-comedogenic skin care products to avoid clogging pores. These include any creams or lotions as well as make-up. Remove any make-up before bed. Choose skin care products that do not contain alcohol as they dry out skin causing an over-production of sebum, promoting breakouts. Above all else, find what works best for you. These are just a few guidelines to get you started.

Be active

Research shows exercise promotes a positive attitude and feeling of well-being.  Be social. Make an effort to visit with friends and attend social events.
