Hey friends 🙂
The following is an interview with the lovely Charlotte Hobbs of the website Sheepishly Shameful.
This is one in a series of short interviews with peeps who have cleared their skin naturally & holistically to find out what worked for them and what didn’t!
These are posted every other week, and if you have cleared your skin naturally and want to fill out your own interview to be featured on The Love Vitamin, then just click here!
What was your experience with acne? How many years did you have it; how did it make you feel?
8 years and counting! I have had acne for 8 years, varying from mild to moderate.
What kinds of things did you try prior to holistic healing that didn’t work?
As someone who is a vegetarian and with quite green beliefs, I struggled with chemical face washes but as a teen this is all that seemed available. When I first had acne, I tried every brand of OTC face wash but nothing really worked.
I tried benzoyl peroxide gel and salicylic acid face wash but I panicked about the chemicals in BP and was very much a believer that anything you put on your skin, you’re going to absorb!
I then went natural and tried OCM (broke me out horribly!), ACV, baking soda, you name it, I’ve tried it!
