At the age of seven, I can remember being mesmerized watching my father wash his face and apply hydrating cream. It was our first bonding moment that I can remember, and what started me in my love for skincare.
Then, like the majority of us, at age of 15 I started having basic teenage acne. What did I do? I hopped on the Proactive wagon and it worked perfectly for me. It cleared everything up. I was an excellent candidate for Proactive because my face produced so much oil that I had no drying and could use the entire system flawlessly.
As I got older, I felt that I had outgrown the acne stage of my life because of the significant decrease in breakouts. I began researching different products that I should be using for cleansing and I wanted to incorporate some anti-aging products as well. I began toying with other products, getting samples and so on. But the challenge was that the products all caused me to have massive breakouts. This reaction made me think…hmmm…I still have acne.
After some education on my skin type and how excessive oily skin works, I tried Aveda’s Outer Peace line. I was not disappointed. In three weeks, my oil production decreased and my skin looked better than it ever had-even when I was using Proactive. When using Proactive, I tended to have somce redness to my skin, and that went away with the Outer Peace product.
I rarely break out, and when I do, it is most often due to the food I have eaten. Did I mention that the smell is amazing?
