My 10 Year Challenge

Around 10 years ago, I got my first pimple. I never really had cystic acne until I turned 20, just a stray white head here and there. And at the time I thought one little pimple was the end of the world!

Celebrities Have Acne Too!

Whether we want it to or not, the media tends to shape the way we feel about ourselves. This, I’ve found, is especially true when it comes to skin. It’s unavoidable when we’re constantly bombarded with unrealistic imagery—from the magazines you read, commercials that come on during your favorite show, to shopping for makeup.

The Importance of Acne Community

Living with acne can be HARD. We all know that, it’s not rocket science. Acne is a condition that tends to make you feel pretty alone.

My Acne Resolutions

I’m usually not about cut and dry New Year’s resolutions. I tend to write down a few things I want to try in the new year but don’t put too much pressure on myself to be perfect.

Breakouts During The Winter

As the seasons change, I don’t just dress my body in layers, I dress my skin in layers too! My skin can be prone to breakouts during the colder winter months, and, trust me, holiday eating, traveling, and the dry indoor heat don’t help!

Past and Present for Acne Positivity

Even though my skin has cleared up this past year (except for the occasional odd pimple), I feel more dedicated than ever to help spread the acne-posi & self love message.

My Biggest Supporter

My husband, Tyler, has been my rock during this acne journey. Sometimes I don’t know how I would do it without him. I am so thankful for him and the love & kindness he continuously shows me—whether I’m breaking out or not.

I’m Thankful For My Acne

I’m thankful for my acne. No, you didn’t read that wrong—I really am truly thankful for my acne. My scars, my acne, hyperpigmentation, all of it.

My Beautiful Acne

I wasn’t always comfortable in my skin, In fact, it took me a lot of work to get where I am today. I used to spend hours getting ready in front of the mirror, worried I would run into someone I knew, and constantly felt ashamed or embarrassed about my acne.

My Partnership With My Skin Matters

So many people experience some type of acne. So—why is it STILL such a taboo subject then?? From lack of representation to stereotypes, acne can be a tough, isolating disease to deal with.
