Hey everyone, i just wanted to share my acne story with you. I don't have much of a story except I've been dealing with acne on and off for most of my adult years, for the past year and a half it has been clear until my husband recently passed away and I've been really depressed, so I'm guessing that's why it's like this, after he died it got really bad and then it healed with some hyperpigmentation left behind of course, but now its just up and down so I'm hoping the Regimen will clear it up and keep it that way.Posted Image

I will do a weekly update with pictures and what I'm doing so ya'll can see my progress and hopefully we can learn from each other.

*then and now*

Current Regimen:
-Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser
-Acne.org treatment
-Aloe vera gel + Tamanu oil to moisturize
-Bobbi brown hydrating eye cream

*This is what I'm doing twice a day until i get the complete regimen which i have already ordered...

Happy journey ya'll
XOXO Tamara

So Thursday marked week one for me on the Regimen and I must say that i am very pleased with the resultsPosted Image The right side has cleared up but the left side seems to be doing a little bit of purging. I have a lot of dryness and peeling but i have oily skin so i don't mind, hopefully it will go back to normal soon minus the oiliness. I also have a lot on hyperpigmentation to deal with but hopefully over time of using this it will help, if not... at least i'll only have one thing to worry about.

Congrats girl- you look great.   Very sorry about your loss but hoping that you have found peace and have had a good support system.


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.
