Apart from a few pimples on my forehead in my teenage, I never had any breakouts on my face for 25 years. Then came the 26th year and brought stress and stress brought acne which in turn gave me anxiety. The vicious cycle began. The acne started as zits. I thought meh, it’s just the stress, they will go away. But they turned into scary pimples which left scars. The acne made me realise many things.
- The pimples and scars affect the confidence of a person.
- Looking in the mirror gives you anxiety.
- You just want to get rid of them as soon as possible.
- Not every acne solution is meant for you.
- You are going to need a lot of patience on this journey to fight your acne.
I am going to talk about the health issues that can cause acne in another post. Today, I am going to talk about a product that helped my acne.
The Vitamin Company’s Kojic Acid Whitening Facewash:
When my sister got me this facewash, I was skeptical at first. The pack made some heavy claims. It said your acne will go away (perfect), the scars will vanish (just what I want), your skin will lighten (not what I am aiming for but okay), your dark circles will diminish gradually (now hold it right there). I have earned these dark circles after years of sleep deprivation, I know they are not going anywhere. And they didn’t.
But the other claims were right. My face looks cleaner now, Alhumdulilah. I won’t say the scars are all gone. But they are light. And here’s the best part. The facewash has no side effects because it has natural ingredients including Japanese Mushrooms, Arbutin & Licorice Root Extract.
As I started using the facewash in summer, I have no idea if it will be good to use in winter. I guess I will have to wait and check. Also, don’t expect to see the results after a week. Make patience your friend, dear one.
So if you have acne, I would say try this facewash. The Vitamin Company didn’t pay me for this (I wish they did).
If you have some tips for the victims of acne, feel free to share them in the comments. Until next time.
