Hi all! I hope you’re doing well. In this post today I am getting just a bit personal with my battle of achieving healthy looking skin. I have been fighting my way through the obstacles of attaining healthy, non-acne prone skin for years now, since 6th grade (I got my first pimple and yes I remember it!). Acne prone skin runs in my family so I wasn’t completely shocked when I started to break out as soon as puberty hit (damn you). I would LOVE to say, at those break-out moments; in my early teens, I took care of my skin with the greatest of ease but I’d be lying.
Pretty much, I did everything you’re not supposed to do when you have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin. I picked, I popped, I scratched, and I kept on with my “I love food diet” (meaning everything… even greasy foods). I could blame it on my sometimes rebellious personality, whom wouldn’t be held down by bad skin but really I was just naïve and a bit ignorant as to what was all happening. As I grew older, that young “rebellious” girl grew tired and really; just wanted a cure for this skin issue that prolonged over time. I went to see a dermatologist, tried Proactive, and even a few natural homemade remedies but nothing seemed to be working well enough OR fast enough.
Fast forward to years later; in my 20’s, I have FINALLY found the solution to my decade long problem. With the help of a healthier diet (more fruits & veggies, less grease), less make-up (but this is just my personal solution), coconut oil (for an added moisturizer), & Skin Nutrition’s I have reached the soft supple, acne-free skin I have always searched for. I use the Skin Nutrition’s 1-2-3 step system. The three step system comes with a face wash, a toner, and a creamy moisturizer. These products, along with my added routines have done WONDERS for my skin and I’ve only been using it for about a year and a half now. I am in love with the results and as an added bonus I am IN LOVE with the prices. At only $3.99 each, you can snag this god send of a skin cleansing system as well!

I hope some of you guys can relate to this struggle I went through and will continue to learn and grow from. Take my advise and better yourself in any situation life throws at you, especially on a personal level. I ignored my skin situation when I was younger and I didn’t prepare for how bad my skin could get without taking care of myself properly. Later, sadness and insecurity took over me, which delved into more insecure emotions. NOW I feel grreat. I feel happy about where my skin is headed as well as where my life is headed. Definitely more confident than insecure and a bit of that is because I am happy with my healthy skin.
