Winnie and I took a holistic approach when it came to healing my skin. After a consultation I started taking supplements she recommended—my body was lacking essential nutrients and it was showing it in the form of painful cystic acne. I visited Winnie at her spa, Tao Day Spa, for extractions and facials and I began an actual skincare routine, which was a lot of fun! I invested in the Eminence Organics skincare line and the esenti custom facial oil which helps me with hydration and uneven textures. Within 3-6 months I noticed my breakouts weren’t as constant and were beginning to slow down. Within 1.5 to 2 years I noticed I would only have the occasional breakout and was mainly dealing with scarring and pigmentation issues. Today my skincare regime is part of my morning and evening routine. I still break out sometimes, but it isn’t painful, doesn’t last as long, and I don’t scar as deeply.
If I’m being completely honest, thinking about it is a bit emotional. My skincare journey has, of course, helped my acne, but it has also helped with texture, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, and I feel really good, proud, and confident about my skin.
