Anyone with acne will be familiar with the embarrassment it causes. I spent a long time trying to hide my skin, as do many others. It’s only now I have found a way to get the condition under control that I feel able to share my experience, and my Before & After pictures, with the world, in the hope that this will help others who are experiencing the same.
I only recently understood how lucky I actually was to have acne. A paradox, I know. My passion for skin and its health was driven by desperation. My acne started in my early thirties and whatever I tried didn’t seem to make any difference. I spent hundreds of pounds on creams, clinics and doctors prescriptions, with very little results.
The revelation started when I understood the reason behind my problem and was shown the way to deal with it. One of the reasons behind mature acne is hormonal imbalance. So it starts internally and the only way to truly tackle it is from the inside out as well as topically. I began taking Advanced Nutrition Supplements and treating my skin topically with Environ products (which contain Vitamin A, the only molecule proven to normalise skin cells), and within weeks, I could see and feel the difference.
For me, providing my body with the vitamins it needed was the key to controlling my acne and regaining my confidence. Discovering Environ skincare not only helped me normalise my skin, but also prompted me to help others achieve the same.
Once qualified, I was able to provide clients with real and lasting solutions to their skin complaints. Now, after just a short consultation I am usually able to provide a treatment plan that works specifically for the individual. Most often, this consists of supplements to help the skin from inside out to heal and remove scaring caused by acne, along with a gentle cleanser and a treatment moisturiser.
My own skincare journey is on-going – I still use the products to maintain my healthy skin. But, I feel lucky to have found a solution that works for me and to be able to share it with so many others. After all, we only have one body and one life, let’s enjoy it!
