I was so frustrated. Frustrated at my body because it seemed confused that I wasn’t 16 anymore. Jealous of my friends who seemed to have flawless skin totally effortlessly. And mad at my doctor because it seemed the only solutions I was offered were antibiotics and the birth control pill.
What I was doing clearly wasn’t working. Something needed to shift.
That shift happened when I had a divine download sitting in class at nutrition school. I was learning about the connections between nutrition and imbalances in the body when the light went on.
I’d been treating my acne like it was the problem.
But my acne wasn’t the issue, it was a symptom of a deeper imbalance.
I started taking the principles and information I was learning at school and applying them to myself. I improved and refined my diet, researched and implemented a supplement protocol, and removed environmental factors that were irritating my skin. I worked on my mindset and my lifestyle, and within a matter of days I was starting to see results.
My acne started healing. And instead of one pimple drying up and a new one popping up in its place, the skin remained clear and the inflammation went away.
Experiencing these results, and so quickly, was inspiring! Or if you appreciate a good pun – Skinspiring!
