I spent most of my 25th year on earth crying about my skin. Yes, you read that right – I’m 25.
Not 13… not 17… not even 20 when skin problems are presumed to be common.
I was in the midst of the worst acne breakout of my life and all I wanted was to hide away forever.
I had been dealing with milder forms of acne as a teen too – and they’ve taken their toll, both physically and mentally.
But dealing with it as an adult is simply a cruel joke. I had bright red pimples, painful bumps, and pulsating cysts all over my face – all year round. They’d stay there for months and eventually leave dark uneven spots, deep and wide like moon craters.
My face looked like a war zone.
I’d cringe at the sight of my skin when I looked in the mirror.
Every morning, I’d force myself to wash my face and get dressed, even though all I wanted was to crawl back into bed and hide under my covers.
Sometimes, I’d feel too embarrassed to leave the house. When my flare-ups happened, I’d often make excuses to avoid social events because I felt too ugly to go out.
I was always fixated on people looking at my skin. I thought no one could look past my “pizza” face (yes, I’ve been called that a bunch)…
On the street, I’d walk with my head down, covering up the sides of my face with my hair. I’d put on layers and layers of makeup, trying to even out my skin. But it just made me look worse.
For as long as I can remember, my interactions with the opposite sex have been skewed by my own perception that any half-decent guy wouldn’t want to come within an arm’s length of me. Sadly, most of my memories are filled with breakouts, not break-ups…
The entire experience was lonely and isolating. My self-esteem and confidence took a total nose-dive.
I felt deeply uncomfortable and insecure in my own skin.
I was so envious of women with amazing skin. I’d laugh at them for freaking out about one or two pimples, and at the same time, I wished I were like them…
Over the years, I’ve tried EVERYTHING to get rid of my acne.
Exfoliators, masks, face wash, natural soaps, vitamins, prescription creams, antibiotics, over-the-counter products… I was a skincare company’s dream customer.
And yes, I tried skipping dairy, drinking more water, cutting sugar, even washing my face with honey.
I did it all.
I even went through two rounds of Accutane, the strongest form of acne treatment available – and one that has very risky side effects.
But nothing worked.
When you try so many products and spend so much money, it really takes a toll on you. I kept asking myself – why was nothing working for me? What was I doing wrong?
Each time I tried a new treatment, I was filled with hope. And each time that treatment didn’t work, I was crushed. Again and again and again.
I was genuinely tired of fighting my skin. Tired of covering it up and NEVER feeling comfortable. Tired of being deeply insecure and anxious about the way I looked.
If any of that sounds familiar and you’ve tried everything under the sun to no avail…
Then listen up carefully because I did finally find a way out.
My acne is completely GONE. To be honest, some days I still can’t believe it. At first, it almost felt as if I was “waiting” for my acne to come back with a vengeance.
But today, I can go to sleep with certainty that a new pimple won’t come knocking the next morning. That there won’t be red, painful bumps covering my entire face. That I won’t have to go through months of embarrassment and social anxiety.
That I am finally like all those women with smooth and radiant skin that I was so envious of for years.
Trust me, I thought I’d never have clear skin.
But just when I was about to give up, I accidentally met an old friend of mine. I knew she was going through similar issues (our skin problems were something that we bonded over back in the day), but we lost touch after high school.
When I first saw her after all these years, I was speechless. The girl I’d known no longer existed.
In her place was a confident woman – with the clearest, most beautiful glowing skin I’ve ever seen.
Plump, even, smooth. Not one spot.
She said it was thanks to this all-natural acne treatment kit that her dermatologist recommended. It was called Kayolab – and it was made specifically for sensitive skin.
It can be quite unnerving to put something new on your face, even for a second, knowing that you can have a reaction that lasts weeks. Or no reaction at all. Not sure which is worse.
The last thing I wanted was to be crushed again. But every time I looked at my friend’s face, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
I wanted to be her. To have her skin. To finally free myself from this nightmarish curse.
So I took a leap of faith and bought a 3-month supply.
Just 3 months in, my skin was finally clearing up beautifully.
That leap of faith was the best decision I have made in my entire life.
My acne treatment kit consisted of just three products – a cleanser, a toner, and a moisturizer. Only two minutes in the morning and two at night – and I can’t believe the results I’ve seen so far.
No longer was my skin breaking out in angry red spots or lumps and bumps. I could run my hand along my jawline and cheeks once again and feel nothing but the smooth skin that was there.
The redness and the dark, uneven spots that were left from the acne were also fading away.
My worst breakout would come down to one or two small spots at a time if that at all. And it didn’t make my skin dry like all the other products I had tried before.
Now I feel comfortable not wearing makeup, and when I do put makeup on, I don’t have to cake it on. I can just lightly touch up my face and be done.
I can leave the house and literally face the world with confidence. I no longer have that anxious feeling of needing to hide my face from other people – or even from myself whenever I look in the mirror.
I am actually HAPPY with what I see.
Kayolab didn’t only heal my skin. It also healed my confidence. My self-esteem. My love for myself.
I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. As if this tremendous weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
Acne doesn’t define me anymore. It’s part of me, but it isn’t who I am.
And that feeling is irreplaceable. It’s changed my life completely.
If you struggle with acne, I know how you feel. But you don’t have to feel like that forever.
People who don’t have adult acne don’t understand what it means to live with it every single day.
It’s not just “having spots.” It’s a feeling of losing who you are. That may sound dramatic, but it was certainly true for me.
It can make you feel isolated, depressed, and unable to go on with your daily life. And I don’t want you to feel like that ever again.
No one is perfect, and there are very few people who NEVER get spots. But you don’t have to be someone who will ALWAYS have acne.
I’m speaking as someone who has come through the other side and is well on the way to having their acne under control.
Can you imagine?
A life free of painful, red, pulsating bumps. Free of constant anxiety and embarrassment. Free of fear that your face will become permanently scarred. Or that whatever you put on your face will leave you crying for weeks.
But one full of confidence, happiness, peace, and genuine love for yourself.
Now imagine if you didn’t have to imagine. Because the reality is – you don’t.
If Kayolab helped me and thousands of other women that had it WAY worse than me, I know it can help you too.
Just look at the difference it made fxor me in 3 short months:
