I have been in a battle with my skin since I was about 13 years old. I’ve taken pills, prescriptions, creams, you name it, to battle the breakouts that come with having Rosacea. I’ve been wearing make up for just as long as well in an attempt to hide my skin. I used to be thrilled when I had makeup done by a professional since they would do such an amazing job covering all my red acne scars or red dry skin. I used to spend so much time and energy on doing my make up and I’m happy that with age I now don’t stress about trying to cover my blemishes as much as I used to. I am happy to say I’m finally comfortable in my own skin! I know! It’s crazy to say, but I do roam the streets now without makeup. I let my red skin breath and I showcase my blemishes with pride. Ok. I’m exaggerating! No one wants to show off a zit! I still wear make up but when I’m not I always make sure to put on at least my moisturizer since I don’t want to be dry on top of being red! Here I am in the picture below with my skin bare for all to see. This is me on a good day, but as I said I’m showing off the #bestofme now and I’m proud to have my skin.
I think everyone should be comfortable in their own skin and be proud of what they have, because in all honesty some people may have it a lot worse. I know my red skin and a few blemishes are nothing compared to people with serious skin issues, so who am I to complain. I’m brave enough to show my bare skin to you all and put myself out there and I think everyone should do the same, whether it’s simply putting a picture of yourself with no make up on facebook, you should just put yourself out there and be proud!
Having sensitive skin one brand I’ve always used and trusted has been Neutrogena! I have been using it for years and I love their new moisturizers! Their Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Day Moisturizer SPF 30 With Rapid Tone Repair is a revolutionary Retinol line that addresses uneven skin tone in just One Week! Neutrogena’s new line leverages the power of Accelerated Retinol SA and Vitamin C to help make your complexion look clearer and more even.
Whether you have age spots, or environmental damage from the sun, NEUTROGENA Rapid Tone Repair is designed to meet the needs of women seeking fast results and healthier looking, more radiant skin.
It is clinically proven to deliver fast results, helping fade the look of dark spots and discoloration; users may see a statistically significant improvement in tone in just one week. Wearing SPF everyday is a must! And another great benefit of Rapid Tone Repair Day is that the product already contains SPF 30, so it also protects skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays, preventing further tone damage and prolonging the effects of the treatment.
Soon we’ll be leaving summer behind… but summer will leave behind spots and marks on many women due to sun exposure, so this is a great time to talk about uneven skin tone and ways to treat it. But when it comes to treating common complexion concerns such as these, women are frustrated due to products that either don’t deliver, or take weeks to deliver results. These products work quick and work wonders.
When I find a product I know works I stick with it! I know and trust Neutrogena as I have used their moisturizers since I was 13 years old. I will continue to use their products and apply my Neutrogena moisturizer to help control my dry sensitive skin and to keep away the sun damage living out here in Los Angeles.
I hope this post will inspire you to be comfortable in your own skin or at the very least want to take better care of your skin!
