A Journey Through My Breakouts
A Note From an Envio Customer. Here’s the story shared with us🤍
I want to share an ongoing chapter of my life that's been a rollercoaster ride - facing annoying acne and the effect it had on my mental well-being.
Growing up, I never had to worry about my skin. It was clear, and I never gave it a second thought. But life has a way of throwing curveballs, and at the age of 25, I found myself dealing with a whole new challenge. Red spots began to appear on my cheeks, and over time, they spread to my forehead. How could I hide from it?
Initially, I brushed it off as a passing phase, hoping it would clear up on its own. But as time went on, my breakouts persisted, leaving behind scars and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It felt like my skin was telling a story, one that I didn't want to be a part of.
Dealing with my breakouts wasn't just about the spots; it was about the misconceptions and judgments that came along. People would offer well-meaning advice, but their words often left me feeling more self-conscious. It was as though I was defined by my skin, and that was a heavy burden to carry.
Cultural differences played a role too. As a first-generation Cuban immigrant, I faced direct comments from those around me, reminding me of my skin concerns. Even compliments about good skin days felt like a reminder of the days when my skin didn't look so great.
My journey isn't over, but I'm excited about the road ahead. I've learned that my strength and determination are my biggest assets. So, if you're battling something similar, remember that you're not alone. Your journey is unique, and it's a testament to your resilience. Embrace it, and don't forget to celebrate the victories, no matter how small they may seem.
By the way, last year, I discovered you all, and your routine is working wonders for me. I can't say enough great things about Envio and its founders. The products and social community/chat have become a part of my daily routine, helping me achieve not only healthier skin but also a healthier mindset.
Thanks so much, Envio, and keep on doing what you're doing.
