I was going through some pictures today and found one from when I went to get some new frames for my glasses. My mom wanted to take picture so I could see what they looked like and I was so uncomfortable. My PCOS had flared up again and my acne had gotten really bad. It was so painful. I hated going anywhere because I felt like people were staring at it constantly; it was hard not to. My skin is still scarred from that bought but its gotten SO much better! I know one of the big factors for me is that I had stopped taking my birth control and clearly my hormones were out of whack. I hadn’t had my period in a few months, and to top it off, the foundation I had been using made my skin worse. I got back on BC and switched to using Bare Minerals and I kid you not, I could see a huge difference in the inflammation the day after I started using it. I highly recommend their products. Their new cream concealer is pure magic. I also have to advocate for eating healthy in relation to clearing up my skin. There were a lot of variables that I changed at once to eliminate my acne but eating healthy and giving my body the nutrients that it needs rather than processed crap has worked wonders! My best friend told me about a new cream she started using for her acne scars (her break outs were way worse than mine) and her skin is practically flawless now. I think I may have to invest in it and I’ll share how it works  :)
