One day, I gazed into the mirror, my heart heavy with disappointment.
It marked another relentless episode of acne breakout, following a series of similar incidents in the past. I had experimented with countless over-the-counter remedies and even consulted a dermatologist, all with minimal improvement.
What truly broke my heart was that I was a Licensed Skin Care specialist at the time, yet I couldn't effectively care for my own skin. I adopted a more aggressive approach, seeking help from a doctor and resorting to antibiotics to combat the breakout. Sadly, this decision led to a severe allergic reaction that required steroids. It was then that I realized I needed a better way.
I was determined to find a solution that wasn't just a temporary fix but was also safe.
This journey led me to become a Certified Health Coach, where I learned that the skin is not a separate entity from the rest of our body; it reflects our overall well-being and life experiences. This is why the skin care industry is a multi-billion dollar one, offering a plethora of treatments and products.
Everyone wants to look good, but there's a catch – you truly look your best when you feel your best. Often, people resort to quick-fix skin treatments, covering up their "wellbeing wrinkles," only to find themselves needing another dose in a few weeks.
My approach is all about long-term, strategic skin care.
Even when I was eating the healthiest foods and maintaining a consistent exercise routine, I still struggled with skin issues. I was overwhelmed by the demands of being a mother to two children under the age of 5, building my own business, and managing my husband's primary care clinic.
Achieving a glowing look encompasses more than just local skin care and a healthy diet. Skin care is a vital part of self-care, overall life balance, and managing day-to-day stress.
My personal breakthrough in both my appearance and life came from the integration of natural, safe skin treatments, healthy life habits, and a deep dive into stress management. After becoming a Heartmath Certified Stress Regulation Specialist, I was able to incorporate these principles into my skin care protocol, helping busy, professional women recharge, rejuvenate, and reclaim their glow, as they truly deserve.
