I used to be really insecure about my skin, to the point that I developed a fear of looking into the mirror. I started experiencing hormonal acne right after high school - it was physically painful, but the pain was nothing compared to the emotional and psychological suffering I went through. I cancelled plans, cried a lot, and wanted to be alone all the time. I was terrified of looking at other people in the eye, afraid of what they would say next about my skin.
It took me years before I could feel comfortable in my own skin. I understand if you ever wished you were better, prettier or just a little more perfect so all your worries will go away. But, my love, there is no such thing as perfection in this world. Society and social media has done a cruel job of setting unrealistic expectations of beauty. It’s always the next celebrity trend, new fashion craze or must-try beauty regime that leaves us feeling like we’re not enough.
The truth is: We're always thinking of being something / somebody else before we think of being ourselves.

I’m here to say it’s okay to have flaws, it’s okay to feel whatever it is you’re feeling, but don’t spend all your days hiding away only because you don’t love this version of yourself. Please remember that the way you are is good enough. Right here. Right now. Today.

We want to provide you with an alternative product that keeps you happy both physically and emotionally, as you go through this journey of healing and self-transformation. Regardless of your skin type, race or sexual orientation.
