Sarah's Story: My Acne Struggles.
C2 helped to give me my skin and confidence back!
My name is Sarah and I am in my mid-20s. I have struggled with acne for over 5 years and it has been a long journey to get to this point. Thanks to C2 Clean Beauty, I finally have clear skin - with the occasional small hormonal breakout.
When I started my freshman year of college I started to get very bad acne. It started with whiteheads here and there and then turned into painful cystic acne all over my face. I had tried almost everything except Accutane. Whether it was dermatologist prescribed cream, gels, and pills or over the counter face washes and creams - I tried it all. I spent a lot of money and would try anything - because this was my face and it was so important to get it back to normal. Nothing worked for me. If anything, all of those things made my skin worse.
I would choose one product line to follow and only use that product or set of products for 3-6 months. I wanted to give it the best chance to work. Nothing worked. If anything my skin just got more sensitive and would hurt when I touched my face to apply products. I even went as far as cutting out all dairy products and gluten products for months. I also had a 3-month period where I freshly juiced celery and drink it every morning. I did anything and everything under the sun and nothing even remotely worked for me.
I was so defeated and crushed. I wouldn’t even walk out of my room without makeup on because I was so embarrassed of anyone seeing my bare skin. I never went out with my friends because I felt so ugly and gross with the acne on my face. I was crushed mentally.
The C2 Transformation
In January of 2020, I started using C2 Clean Beauty. My mom bought me the kit as a last straw attempt to see if something would work. I took everything else out of my skincare routine and only used C2 Clean Beauty products. Honestly going into it I had little to no hope because nothing ever worked for me before so why would this work? However, after just a week I noticed a difference in my skin. I still had acne but my skin wasn’t painful to the touch anymore. Slowly my skin transformed and it was not constantly so oily.
After about 6-8 weeks I had no cystic acne. I still was getting some acne but my painful deep pimples were gone. However, I had many scars all over my cheeks due to picking at my face. I still continued to only use C2 Clean Beauty for 3 more months and the results I received were mind-blowing. Almost all of my scars have disappeared and I am so proud to say I have a very clear complexion now. I now only get acne around that time of the month and at most, it is 3 small pimples that disappear in a day or two.
I am in awe of how these products completely changed my skin. I had lost all hope and had no self-confidence. C2 Clean Beauty gave me back my confidence and helped me achieve the skin I’ve always dreamed of having. I will never stop using these products. They are truly amazing.
