I’ve had acne for most of my life. Yep, I’m a licensed skincare professional and I struggle with acne. It’s ironic isn’t it?
My acne first started in sixth grade. As a teen, I tried literally every drugstore product or routine designed for acne. ProActive, Neutrogena, Clearasil, Acne Free. None of it worked. I skipped moisturizing in hopes of controlling oil, I applied “spot treatments” all over my face, and I used clay masks frequently, but now I realize I was only making things worse. I assumed the breakouts would stop after highschool, but acne followed me into adulthood. As an adult, I became desperate and tried prescription acne medication. It felt like a miracle at first, but after a month I experienced adverse side effects. I felt defeated and was ready to accept having acne for the rest of my life.
Then earlier this year, I completed intense training with the Face Reality Acne Clinic and became a Certified Acne Specialist. Beauty school taught me about the four grades of acne, but Face Reality dug deeper and defined different types of acne within the four grades. It also discussed the root cause of acne, common myths, and why prescription acne medications are typically not successful long-term. My skin is the best it’s ever been because of the Face Reality training and their products. It’s still not perfect, but it’s been a huge improvement.
Trust me when I say I know what it’s like to feel embarrassed, frustrated, and self-conscious because of your skin. My personal experience with acne is what made me become an Esthetician in the first place, and I pursued the Acne Specialist training because I wanted to help others like myself. I feel more comfortable in my skin than ever before, and you deserve to feel like that too. You deserve to feel confident in your skin, and to love your skin. We all deserve clear skin.
