Since the age of 9, I have struggled with acne. I was an outcast most of my child and teenage years. I was bullied, harassed, had few friends, and was always depressed. Somewhere along the way, my regular acne turned into cystic acne, which resulted in indented scarring, and as a result, even lower self-esteem. Many years later and having found no real relief from conventional methods or products, I turned to natural ones. Now, at 46, even though I still deal with hormonal break-outs, I no longer have issues with cysts and my scarring has improved greatly. Knowing how devastating acne can be not only physically, but mentally and emotionally, I decided to share what I have learned on my journey to clear, healthy skin in the hopes that my story, tips, product suggestions, etc.. can help others who are struggling with this too!
Below, you’ll find some of my favorite sites that cover acne (as well as aging for those interested in that too!)…
