My forehead looks actually smoother!! I still habe some scars present but the redness and size of the scars since day 0 seemed to habe calmed down. I still habe a few bumps on the left side of my forehead but those are pretty minor!
Delighted to have been involved in this project with @stylistmagazine chatting skin positivity, acne and make-up and possibly the first time ever I’ve been filmed without foundation or concealer!😱 ******************************************************Repost from @stylistmagazine using @RepostRegramApp - All hail the #skinpositivity movement - watch the full video at facebook.com/stylistmagazine⠀
Lettering challenges have always been a challenge in the sense of finding time to participate!! So happy to have had a moment to create this weeks #homwork challenge from @homsweethom about the tiny moments of joy in life...and as a 38 year old, getting pimples is so annoying...so if I wake up in the morning and don’t HAVE any, that’s almost like winning the lottery... the clear complexion lottery..!
Learning and meeting like minded people who enjoy lettering also make me over the top happy and in April I will be taking a workshop with THE Lauren Hom the creator of this challenge, talented lettering artist and all around bad a** boss babe... with a bunch of my fave letterers/friends! It’s going to be an amazing opportunity to pick the brain of a lettering/marketing genius...
What knowledge I know is only a handful of water compared to the ocean that is deep and wide...learning gives me great joy...
You hear so many stories about our nutrition line and the amazing results people are seeing, but it’s not very often we share the skincare side of things. So here is my story....... Let me tell you about these before and after pics. (It’s about the get real up in here 😉) The girl on the left had struggled with adult acne for over 5 years. I had done proactive for many years which did help for a short period of time but left my skin dry and flaky, not to mention I was terrified to stay at anyone’s house because I didn’t wanna bleach their towels🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️. (Can you even imagine what that was doing to my skin??) I was terrified to go out in public because even large amounts of make up didn’t cover up all of the imperfections that I saw on a daily basis. I was trying to grow my Arbonne business but would not host presentations because I was terrified of what people would think of my appearance. I had been to the dermatologist many times, where I was prescribed medications (which have had many side effects of their own) and heavy duty creams. I would stand in front of the mirror and cry every night before I had to put the creams on my face because it hurt so bad. My skin was inflamed, raw and red all the time. I now couldn’t even wear make up to attempt to cover up my skin as it would just show how dry and damaged my skin was.
I started with the 30 days to healthy living and learning that dairy was a main culprit in my acne was a huge step towards healing. You guys so often we don’t realize that we really need to start healing our bodies from the inside out. I needed to learn what food served me and which foods were actually harming my body. Once my acne started to clear I was left with the scars...... I have been consistently using the RE nine antiaging line along with the clear future acne line for a little over a year now and you can see from the pictures how much healthier my skin looks.
The girl in the picture on the right has so much more confidence! I am not afraid to walk into a room, I am not afraid to be noticed. And if I can share my story today and even help one person with their health than it was all worth it.
Car ride snacks! I fast in the mornings until about 930 and by that time I am starvingggg SO this morning I need all the food to get me through a 2.5 hour car ride. I get bored driving but eating helps keep me engaged behind the wheel 😅 .
Featured eats: Avo on sprouted grain bread w S&P, turmeric, cayenne pepp, oatmeal/quinoa/chia cereal with banana, PB & almond butter, mixed nuts & seeds, berry mix and half banana. .
Happy Saturday! I’ll be enjoying myself in High Springs ❤️ @lesleei I’m coming for ya!
Wore makeup last night, which I rarely do. And as always I’m blown away by my makeup! Not only is it free of talc, bismuth and lead(yes, this is a real thing in the cosmetic industry) but because it’s plant based it’s amazing for your skin and literally every time i take it off my skin is CLEARER than when I put it on! How is this even possible! #lovesavvyminerals#savvyminerals#yleo#momtrepreneur#adultacne#clearerskin#beautifulskin
THE POWER OF ANTI BLEMISH🤜🏼💥disclaimer: Katie is wearing mascara in the second picture, however that’s the only make up!
Katie our assistant business Manager has been using our Anti Blemish three step followed by moisture surge 72hr for around 2 weeks now morning and evening and look at the improvement already! “I feel so much more confident, I now leave the house wearing just a CC Cream and some bronzer compared to the full coverage I was wearing. It’s made such a difference” #antiblemish#adultacne#cliniqueconsultant#clinique#skincare#threestep @cliniqueuk
I've been going through this 'clean conscience and cleaner skin' phase, all thanks to the #NewKamaToLove @kamaayurveda. This 100% natural range of products is absolute LOVE. I shared about the anti-acne cleansing foam I've been using from this range, recently. And as great as it is, skincare is never about one hero product. It's a combination of all the right ones that show visible results. Pictured here are some of the ones I'm currently using and am quite happy with. The makeup remover with rose and jasmine essential oils is, in my opinion, a genius product. The best part is that you just need to massage it gently on your skin like a cream and wipe off with a damp towel or facecloth. So it's the perfect fuss-free solution for those late nights when you are too lazy to wash off your makeup before bed. Did I mention how great it smells btw? Also has a light, buttery texture which leaves your skin baby soft! I do follow up with the foaming face wash when I have the time though, given how oily my skin is these days. And of course, I can't not finish off with a good moisturizer. Speaking of which, I can't even begin to tell you how much I used to hate using day creams (oily skin woes) till I discovered this sensitive skin day cream by @kamaayurveda. It's so nice and light and the best part - completely absorbs into my skin leaving it soft YET matte! Win win!

She came back for a follow up during our #springskin event and we we’re all amazed by her results so far🧐. I MEAN WOW!
AM & PM:
•LHA Cleansing Gel
•Blemish + Age Defense
•Retinol 0.5 •Triple Lipid Restore
Today we added
1. Phloretin CF: to help diminish the appearance fine lines and discoloration
2. Discoloration Defense: a dark spot corrector targets visible skin discoloration for brighter, more even-looking skin! ☺️
She will be scheduled for a series of light peels every two weeks to help improve the appearance of #acne , fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, laxity, dullness, and skin imperfections.
Look forward to sharing her progress📸
