You have acne

I was looking through old photos and I ran into a few pictures that actually show what my skin used to look like. It was pretty awful and I was always really embarrassed about it and I even avoided wearing the color red for fear it would make it look worse. I also thought that makeup made it look extra gross and crusty so I was usually self-conscious whenever I left the house in the morning.

Once when I was living in South Korea a Korean friend and her Husband took us out for the day. While we were walking around a Mall he suddenly pointed at my face and said very loudly in English "YOU HAVE ACNE!" He called me out one of my major pain points. I felt like I was punched. I figured he was proud of himself for knowing the words in English, but it made me feel worse than I already did. Considering I already stuck out like a sore thumb - White, American, Overweight I got lots of stares already. Sometimes even people screaming at me from moving vehicles.

After trying lots of skin care products and many prescription creams and medications. I finally  learned how to heal my skin with food.

My skin now 2010:

So for those of you out there who have tried everything (creams, cleansers, prescriptions, etc) and still haven't seen the results you'd like to see with your skin then let me tell you there is hope. It is called healing from the inside out!

What an inspirational story!! Thank you so much for sharing this. This is so important for others who struggle with acne to know. They search and search for the perfect product(s) that won't completely improve the issue if they are still eating the same. Love this post :)

Stancie - Yay! Glad to hear this story was inspirational. I agree we all wish that there is "something" out there for the quick fix. However, simply changing your diet can change everything.

Speaking of products what are your faves?
