I am going to be very vulnerable with everyone today! I am really putting something out there that made me feel discouraged and embarrassed for quite a while. I want to share what led me to become a Rodan and Fields consultant.
This past year has really been a tough one for us. In November of last year, after many months of pain with no answers, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia brought with it many challenges when it came to my skin. My skin burned and felt like I was being stuck with needles. I had the worst rash on my arms and face, especially on my face. I could no longer wear makeup (and if you know me, I am a total girly girl who loves to dress up and loves makeup) and my skincare regimen at the time just didn’t work anymore. In fact, it seemed to make things worse. I started trying many different things! New foundations to help cover this rash and rawness, new skincare to try to help the rash and burning go away! All I knew to do was just cover it up more with foundation when I would go out. Taking it off was horrible!! I tried everything!
My friend, Michelle, who is also a photographer introduced me to Rodan and Fields. I was really hesitant of course! I had tried so many other things and just thought this would be the same result. So, what did I do? I tried to find as many cons about it as I possibly could and asked her a ton of questions! I looked at all of the reviews, I looked at all of the articles and YouTube videos. I didn’t want to purchase more products and be discouraged again.
Michelle explained that Rodan and Fields has a 60 day money back guarantee so I decided to give it a try. I decided to purchase the Soothe regimen. I took my before photo thinking it would never change.
I started the Soothe regimen and, after about a month I was seeing improvement!! I was absolutely in love!! No more burning. No more rash! My skin was softer than it ever had been!! I have never considered myself to be consultant material, but this experience was one that I will never forget and I felt compelled to share it. This is the first time I have opened up about this with everyone because it seriously is something that is difficult to open up about. I get it! I understand how being in pain and being self conscious about your skin can make you close up entirely! Honestly, if this worked for me, I know it can work for others and the last thing I want is for someone else to go through or keep going through what I did! If me sharing my story can help just one person, then it’s worth it!!
The left photo represents a vulnerable and depressed girl who was in a lot of pain…and the right one, a girl that has been changed by this skincare regimen!! The Soothe Regimen was life-changing for me!!! About 2 months ago, I decided to start the Redefine regimen as well and now I am loving it!! It’s MAGIC!! My skin has seriously never looked better! Why did I not just start this when I was younger? I can’t wait for this journey!!
