Let’s talk about skincare for a second..
Kiersten and I have both battled with adult acne, which I know we can all agree is the absolute worst. It’s embarrassing, painful and impossible to cover up. We were both very fortunate to make it out of high school without too much of a struggle, but the minute college came around, it was like we were finally going through puberty. I immediately found a dermatologist and handed my life over. I was willing to take any pill or lather my skin with any topical cream they were pushing on me. All I wanted was clear skin, and I was so desperate that I didn’t care about what the medication was doing to my body. Together we have tried everything, and we were meeting our insurance deductible every year just from filling up our expensive skin prescriptions. I found out the hard way that I was extremely allergic to Sulfa and Kiersten ended up having to be taken off of Accutane due to multiple severe reactions. At the end of it all, we still had acne and no solution. NOTHING WAS WORKING.
Three years ago I decided that enough was enough and it was time to try something else. I cut out gluten and dairy, and I attempted to step away from medication and try to heal my acne from the inside because only treating it on the outside was no longer working. I switched over to an organic skincare regime, and things seemed to be going well. Unfortunately, the roller coaster ride continued and the acne never actually went away. I went from trying every medication to buying every organic skin care regime out there. I was willing to spend hundreds of dollars on face wash as long as it would clear up my skin. I still had the same outcome; NOTHING WAS WORKING! I was still depressed and wasting so much money on attempting to clear up my skin.
This story has a happy ending, and I am sure you are ready for it. So I recently decided to try out Origins Mega-Mushroom skincare line, and within days my skin was clearing up. Through all the years, all the medication and all the different skin care regimens I’ve tried, I have NEVER seen improvement like this. They make their Mega-Mushroom products with reishi mushroom which according to the Origins site is "believed to have life-extending properties and is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to heal, improve health and promote longevity".
There is so much that goes into having a healthy and happy body and the hard thing is is that looks different for everyone. Not one body is the same, and not one body needs the same thing. I wanted to share this post and this product with you because I know there are some of you out there struggling and if we can find a solution, so can you! Above all, please remember that it’s so important to take care of your body first. The acne will come and go and at the end of the day that one pimple on your face won’t ruin your life. Feed your body and nourish your soul. You'll get through it!
