Over the years, I've had my ups and downs dealing with acne, which I've struggled with for over 15 years now. It crushed my confidence and self-esteem at a young age and has been an emotional rollercoaster, to say the least! Despite all the low points I've been through, I am so grateful that I am an acne sufferer - not something my younger self ever imagined I would say! It led me to where I am today in many aspects of my life, including the existence of this blog because acne is what got me into researching health and beauty products in the first place as well as helping me discover the plant-based lifestyle. While I don't break out nearly as much as I used to, I do get the occasional breakout (the proof is on my Youtube channel where you can also see how my skin has progressed and improved acne-wise over the last few years) and my skin is still very much prone to scarring and hyperpigmentation. I wanted to go more in-depth about microneedling, a treatment that has done wonders for my skin over the last couple of years and share a recent discovery in Banish* skincare products which I was so excited to finally test out after hearing great things about them over the years.
