I’m sharing my personal skin condition story, thoughts, and feelings in partnership with Promius Pharma as a paid spokesperson. The stories, thoughts, and opinions below are expressly my own. Promius Pharma is not responsible for any other content on this page.
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. Honestly, when I created this account it gave me the courage to live more confidently in my skin.
First I started sharing images of my skin online, months later I went to the grocery without makeup for the first time EVER, and now years later I go weeks or sometimes even months without makeup.
It was sharing photos of my skin and realizing that I wasn’t alone in this journey that really planted the seed of confidence and allowed me to blossom into full on skin acceptance over time 😊 So thank you guys for that. Through connecting with you guys, I realized that I had nothing to hide. My acne doesn’t make me any less beautiful and it is a part of life, nothing to be ashamed about. I hope that you realize this too.
I often get asked for tips on confidence when dealing with acne and the biggest thing you can do is just to make little changes. Start small when working up that confidence and skin acceptance, whatever that means to you. It could be speaking positive affirmations, going to the grocery store without makeup, or NOT canceling plans because of a breakout. That’s why I’m so excited to share my story in partnership with @my_skin_matters!
