I haven’t had a clear complexion from the time I was 10. I would look at other’s creamy smooth skin and be envious. Yes, even as a preteen, I noticed that other girls, and even boys had awesome skin and I didn’t. I had visible pores, uneven skin tone and acne. Once I hit high school, the hardcore breakouts started and I had to see a dermatologist for my skin. While the dermatologist was able to clear up my acne, I was left with dry flaky skin as a result of the harsh creams that were used. Once I stopped acne treatment, the acne came back- it was a vicious cycle. I just couldn’t get clear skin no matter what I did.
As I got older I would research the best ways to get rid of acne and I tried just about everything I could get my hands on. I looked up acne treatment reviews so I could see what other’s had to say about the various products out there. From creams and gels to masks and acupuncture, nothing seemed to make my acne disappear for good. Everything I tried was a temporary fix. The only thing that kept my acne at bay for an extended period of time was pregnancy hormones. Yes, the same hormones that made me an emotional mess for 9 months made my skin perfect! Once I stopped breastfeeding my daughter my acne was back. Not quite as bad as before, but I did have the typical breakouts on my chin and forehead.
I heard of this miracle blue light called Tria blue light acne treatment and I had to find out more about blue light therapy. What was it? How effective would it be? Is it suitable for mild acne? What are the side effects? I looked into every detail about this acne treatment. The more I read, the more I wanted to try it out. It seemed suitable for my type of acne and didn’t have any side effects. Treatments would be 5 minutes per day.
This all seemed fantastic- so when I was accepted into the Tria campaign I was more than thrilled. Through this trial I expect to have fewer breakouts, a clearer complexion, and if I do happen to break out during treatment, I’m hoping my breakouts won’t last long or be as severe as they would be without treatment. I’m an adult- acne is suppose to be for teens. It’s time to get rid of this horrible skin condition and have a clear complexion! For the next few weeks I will be trying out blue light therapy and I will let you know what happens!
