Acne is a result of self-dislike. A person who gives so much love and doesn’t remember to give back to themselves. This is what I had to face. I truly am grateful for the experience because it helped me go deeper into meditations to find out more about myself and accept/honor those dark parts.
I had great skin throughout high school and soon as I hit 19, that’s when it all changed. I began getting cystic acne and have battling it ever since. ProActive was good for only about a year, then I went through at least 20 or more different products trying to find the solution. Nothing worked.
This past year, 2015, it was the worst it had ever gotten. I began to doubt myself even more, that no one would want to get to know me because of my acne. But what I didn’t know, until I started working in meditations, it was to help me realize many things about myself I needed to change. It was showing up literally right in front of my face! I began to change my diet, taking out all gluten products and stopped eating meat. It helped a bit, but still it was there. Until I began my shadow self and self love meditations. Every day when I looked in the mirror I said to myself, “You have a warm smile, sparking eyes, and I am valuable.” That empowered me and my imperfections. It is what makes me unique, there is no one else on this planet like me!
Everything began to change, I cut out processed sugars, started using Dr.Bronner’s Castile Soap, Frankincense to help my scars along with rosehip oil and vitamin E, tea tree oil to spot treat, and thats now my daily regime. I started using a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water placing it in a small mason jar to use for my toner and that works wonders! I mean, I do like sugars now and then so for when those times come that’s when all those things work for me.
Everyone is different, find your way, find yourself, and most important of all LOVE YOURSELF no matter what you look like because there is no one else like YOU!
