I Am The Girl With The Blemished Skin But Now I Am Learning To LOVE My Flaws!
For as long as I can remember, I have always had some type of scar or pimple on my face. Maybe I had beautiful skin like a baby when I was five years old BUT all of that seemed to fade away once puberty entered my life. As a teenager, I experienced acne harder than any other person I knew. Every day I would wake up and there would be a new friend on my face and I would silently cry about it before I headed off to school. I drank plenty of water, used multiple of the best face products but nothing in this whole entire world seemed to help me at all. I knew for sure that I would be doomed with bad skin for the rest of my life and there wouldn't be anything that I could do about it. However, even though I knew acne was apart of life, for some reason I didn't start tp REALLY feel ashamed about it until I started wearing makeup. You see, before I started wearing makeup, I never knew what it was like to conceal my flaws and once I got a taste of it, I didn't even want to leave the house without wearing it at all. I remember one time it got so nad that I didn't even want to run a single errand without slabbing a bit of powder on my face! It wasn't long before the makeup started to really cause pimples and it seemed to do more damage for my face than good. One day I just decided that I was sick of it and I just stopped wearing makeup all together unless it was on the weekends. I hated having to wear makeup every single day and it was really starting to annoy me! I just decided to embrace my pimples for what they were and decided to live my best life.

It wasn't long before my face started to clear up and I started to experience fewer breakouts. Now I hardly get them unless it's hormonal or if I have introduced a new product to my routine that may cause a few breakouts. You would think that I would be sooo happy that my skin was clear from breakouts right? WRONG! Now I have a bigger problem....blemishes and acne scarring! Ugh! All of those days of scrubbing my face too hard and popping pimples has finally caught up to me and now my skin is damaged. I was in my mid 20's and I was just too embarrassed to even look at myself. But I am a little older now and there are so many more options on the market and instead of sulking about my skin I have decided to invest in a few products that are supposed to help heal the look of blemishes.

It took me 28 long years to get to this point in my life and ya girl refuses to go back over a few dark spots and blemishes. No one is perfect and we all have things that kind of annoy us but I wouldn't change it for the world. I can proudly say that I walk around the city makeup-free DAILY without a care in the world and guess what? The people around me could care less as well! I love being makeup-free sooo much that I literally dread when I have to put it on and removing it at the end of a long day is equivalent to attending a free spa treatment! Ha! Anyways, I am saying all of this just to let yall know that I am finally loving the skin I am in and I am embracing all of the flaws that are on my face! As a teenager, I never in a million years that I would reach this point but I am proud to say that I am free of feeling bad about not having perfect skin! I feel great about myself and that's all that matters!

PS: Currently trying The Body Shop Tea Tree cleansing line and so far I am loving it! It's still too soon to know if it is removing any of my blemishes but we shall see!

Always Living and Forever Learning,
