A friend of mine has pimples issue. He has a lot of pimples, but it's not of a severe case. Personally I understand pimples can make us feel insecure about ourselves, but I don't think it's ever a good idea to take extremely strong medication just to remove pimples. My friend resorted to taking antibiotics for more than a year now. He told me it's the strongest medicine ever, but he has to go for blood check ups every month as the medication may harm his body. His parents didn't think he need it, but seeing that his brother did it and it worked for him ever since he stopped medication (which is 1 to 2 years), thus he resort to going for it.
I respect that it's his choice. But the money, the health risk, all just for the looks. This triggered me into thinking whether is this all worth it just for looks? Surely there are some people who really need the help (e.g. people who get severe skin or face damages deserve to get comestic surgery and other help due to the psychological impact it has on them), but do we, physically normal and healthy people really need to bring it to that extent? I'm curious about what you guys think with regards to this particular situation with my friend. Feel free to bring in your thoughts about other health-wise risky measures taken to look better.
Also, will you ever do cosmetics surgery to look better?

A lot of people will do things we don't approve of.. They'll even do things that the health industry doesn't approve of (like smoking, binge drinking, etc)... So the way I look at it - is that there's nothing you can do to force them to stop/change what they are doing.. You can only influence their feelings on what they are doing (E.g. "Personally, I like your pimples.. I think you're wasting a ton of money only to potentially harm your health").
So, I guess my answer is: "If it's none of your business, don't be too concerned, but don't be afraid to speak up about how you feel regarding what they are doing"
