This morning we were discussing on acne and psoriasis with a dermatologist. It is part of our dermatology topic session. After the discussion, somehow our talk deviated to discuss on the treatment of acne that is available on the market.

The non-pharmaceutical company that sells the treatment for acne is quite dubious and they does not necessarily have proven track record. The dermatologist told us that most of the product advertised heavily on the newspaper, radio and television does not work at all and the products do not treat the cause of acne. At most, they only relieve the symptoms of acne temporarily.

Due to the nature of this topic, all female members of my group start asking questions on various products such as make up, moisturiser, sun screen and various treatments of acne. The conclusion is that many companies exploit the human desire to become beautiful who never satisfies at anything.

One striking example was that dark skin people like to have white skin whereas white people like to have darker skin. We will never become satisfy at anything. Once we get something that we desire, we want more and more. It will never stop.
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: I heard the Prophet saying, "If the son of Adam (the human being) had two valley of money, he would wish for a third, for nothing can fill the belly of Adam's son except dust, and Allah forgives him who repents to Him."

[Sahih Bukhari, Book 76, Hadith no 444]
