I didn’t understand what I was doing wrong. I had been off gluten, dairy and refined sugars for a few years; I wasn’t drinking alcohol; my diet was extremely balanced and my physical activity quite regular. I was trying it all with no results, and my self-esteem was plummeting. My flawless skin was my hallmark and there were days where I was struggling recognising myself in the mirror.
My goal was to not just get back to that place where I felt every day confidence and happiness with my skin, but also embrace the changes that come with age.
For those with both sensitive and blemish-prone skin, trust us, we know how difficult it can be to successfully remedy this. The trouble, for the most part, lies in the fact that sensitive skin is innately more fragile and requires special care, but common methods to eradicate acne often lead to dryness, further sensitization and, ultimately, even more breakouts. It’s a vicious cycle that is hard to know how to break, annoyingly frustrating and quite frankly upsetting.
