Sweat and dirt are not a cute combination when trying to have clean and clear skin. Being an athlete for majority of my life and playing multiple different sports I have always been susceptible to acne issues. I have tried it all when it comes to skincare trying to find the perfect match for my skin and to help combat the bacteria and elements that I encounter playing softball and training everyday. From Cetaphil, to CeraVe, to Clean & Clear to Clinique, I’ve tried it all trying to find some consistency in my skin.
These brands would help for a while but would come at the expense of skin feeling dry, looking tired, not really feeling clean. The results from using these products lasted for a very short time and Just like clockwork, I would have a new blemish creep up on my skin. It wasn’t until I was 17 years old when I ended up having to get stitches on my chin that I really discovered the beauty in natural products. I was in a hurry to make sure I didn’t have a scar from the stitches and began researching all that I could do to prevent it. That is when I found the amazing affects cocoa butter, licorice root and shea butter had on my skin with scars and just overall glow. The results I saw from using these natural products were amazing! This ignited my desire to research more and more on what natural skin care products can do for different issues with the skin. My skin not only stopped breaking out but began to have this glow to it. My complexion was evening out despite always being in the sun and that dry feeling that most skincare brands gave me completely disappeared. My skin felt smooth, clean and clear and it lasted!
