I know that this is supposed to be mainly a natural hair blog, but there is one struggle I have to address as a natural hair maven, which may help anyone else experiencing this. ACNE. DUN. DUN. DUUUNNNNN!!!
Since I have started transitioning in 2011, I noticed my skin was changing as well. Maybe it was the environmental change from the states to the Caribbean. Or it could be the new natural oils that I moisturized my hair with, that may have migrated from my scalp to clogging my pores.
Either way, my skin was looking like the bottom of a Crunch Candy Bar and something needed to be done.
I tried almost every drugstore product that solicited incredible results. I googled at-home remedies such as DIY lemon scrubs and mayonnaise masks.You name it, I’ve done it all. Anytime someone gave a suggestion, I jumped at it without hesitation.
After a few days of trying each remedy, I began to hallucinate results. I noticed maybe one or two pimples gone, and I would be excited to show off my almost new skin. However, when I had face to face interactions with people, they would always make it a point of discussion on how to relieve these symptoms. I was mortified and almost discouraged, however, I was determined.
At this point I was desperate. It’s not like I could hide my face. I was not quite sure if my “solution” was ever really working or creating more problems. So, I was back to square one.
UNTIL ONE DAY. I saw a review on YouTube by one of my favorite beauty bloggers, Forever Flawlyss. She explained this new regimen which included a product called CUROLOGY.
I did not know what i stumbled upon when I clicked on that link. After reading about how the program worked, I gave it a shot. It was a $20 a month subscription. I put my information in, answered a few questions about my skin, and finally uploaded pictures.
At that moment, I was assigned a dermatologist who formulated and shipped out my product. I received the product in two days. Excited to use it, I ripped it open, read the directions, and from that point on, HISTORY WAS MADE!!! No more CRATER SKIN!!!
Side Note: Your skin really does get worse before it gets better, consistency is key. As well as being mindful of what you put on or in your body.
As months passed, I started revealing more flawless skin and my doctor would tweak the formula as my skin changed. Curology changed my life! I posted pictures for you to see the before and after results. MIND YOU THE BEFORE IS SUPER GROTESQUE IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH.
Here is also a link to my personal code for those interested in trying a free month with Curology. Comment below if you have questions, concerns or even a testimonial on the product.
DISCLAIMER: This is not a paid ad for Curology. It is a review on a product that I tried and worked for me. Curology did not pay me to post this blog. This is solely my opinion.
So there you have it my battle with ACNE….. DUN DUN DUNNNNN!!!
