Acne. Literally one of the worst words in the English language. It's painful, irritating, annoying, unattractive, and just down right crappy if you have it. It can lead to depression, social anxiety, and extremely low self-esteem.
If you're wondering how I know all of this, it's because I've suffered (and still continue to suffer) from acne for YEARS. Yeah, mine could be a lot worse. I'm totally aware of that. But no matter how mild or severe you have it, it still sucks. I've never been confident enough to take a makeup free selfie or go to dinner and a movie without makeup. It's something I wouldn't wish for anyone to have to go through. So those of you who are out there struggling with this, I feel you and I'm here for you!
All that being said, this post is NOT about addressing all of the struggles and negativity regarding acne. I'm actually here to talk to y'all about my holy grail products that I've found here in the last 6 months or so that have TRULY made a significant difference in my skin.
