My Acne Story
My Acne Story
I was drying out my skin for years with acne products - my skin was producing oil to make up for drying it out. When I got off the toxic acne products my skin was purging
It had been 10 years since I started using Proactiv and I woke up one morning at a friends lake house and saw that I had bleached their navy blue pillow case. I was mortified. What was I putting on my face!?
I had tried getting off Proactiv a few times before, but every time I would break out like crazy. It made me super disappointed that I had fallen for celebrity endorsements at such a young age - with barely any acne.
A few months later I decided it was time to give up my Proactiv and ride it out until I could find something that wasn’t as toxic for my skin. After all, 80% of what you put on your skin will get absorbed into your blood stream AND the USA FDA only bans around 30 chemicals.
My skin was purging with cystic acne. I didn’t want to leave the house, I would often cry a lot about my skin, and my self esteem was lower than ever. I wanted to give up and go right back to Proactiv, but Arbonne was introduced to me through my mom’s cousin, Robin. I had never heard of Arbonne and rolled my eyes at the thought of someone selling it.
Arbonne’s anti-aging skincare line, Re9, helped clear up Robin’s daughter’s acne so I purchased it and gave it a shot. After a few weeks my skin was still not clearing up so I texted Robin and within a matter of 2 hours I was on a zoom call with someone talking about my skin… this is when it hit me hard that people in this company are there to HELP YOU.
I was embarrassed as ever, but they asked me things such as my diet, my stress levels, what makeup I was using, shampoo, etc. and I swapped out my Re9 Skincare Line for Arbonne’s Clear Future.
