I remember well the day this photo was taken. I was feeling the most relaxed I had in weeks but at the same time my self esteem was at an all time low.
Whilst I always preach self love and acceptance and try to maintain a positive attitude I was failing at my own advice.
My skin was going through it’s worst flare since going off the pill and I was facing the terrifying reality that the acne I have been fighting for 20 years was re-rooting itself back into my life. I was devastated and sad and going through all the motions of thinking - but what will people say and think? .
What a disaster right? How could I think like that? Whilst this post is meant to be a progress update and a bit of a share about what I’ve been doing, I want to keep things real. We all have our own insecurities. It’s ok to feel them, but it’s how we deal with them that matters most. This experience has humbled me and shown me an area in my life that needs growth. .
So, swipe left and you’ll see the difference between 28 Feb of this year, vs 16 May.
Disclaimer: I will share what I have done to remedy my skin but please note this is not a recommendation and you should consult with your doctor or medical professional before embarking on any additional supplements in your diet.

Evening supplements: vitamin A, Zinc, Lecithin 1200 and @onutricia_collagen
Morning supplements: my usual plus @onutricia_collagen

I can tell you the science behind each and every single thing I am taking or doing but it wouldn’t fit on this post. I am comfortable that this is the best course of action for my personal situation.
Happy Tuesday folks, remember to keep trying to practice self love - I know I am.
