My skin turned against me and erupted into a face full of massive, deep pimples and tiny little bumps all over my jawline, cheeks and forehead. I tried every product, facial and prescription under the sun to try and clear my skin. I saw numerous practitioners from medical doctors to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nothing worked. I felt hopeless and at a loss of what to do.
My painful cystic acne spread from my face to my chest and back. It left me feeling horribly self-conscious and shattered my confidence. I was working as an on-air TV personality at the time and dreaded having to face the HD camera every morning looking like a pimply-faced teenage boy.
Around the same time, I began to take my love of food a step further and delved in to the world of healthy eating. I started wondering if what I was putting in my body would make a difference for my skin. I went back to school and became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and obsessed over all things acne.
I spent years educating myself on how to heal my skin from the inside out so I could finally get to the bottom of what was causing my acne. And guess what? I figured it all out and stopped my embarrassing and painful breakouts — for good. Not only did I get the clear skin I had been praying for but I got my confidence and self-esteem back, too.
