Hello….. I am Anjali Lobo, the founder of Your Beauty Chronicles. I struggled with acne since I was 14. As I grew older, instead of getting better it just got worse.
I got really depressed every time I looked into the mirror. I love to dress up, but nothing seemed to go well with my acne. There were days when I considered just not going out as my acne was so bad. This is what my face looked like at one point.
I have never let anyone see these pictures but I thought it was time I do this to help anyone suffering as I was.
Antibiotics, OTC ointments, home remedies were all tried out with no results. Nothing seemed to bother the angry red bumps I had on my face.
The worst part was the comments I got, some downright mean, all under the guise of being helpful.
Finally after 22 years and countless treatments, at the age of 36, I decided that I had had enough. I stopped all the treatments. Decided that I was going to get rid of my acne, ON MY OWN.
I took care of my fragile emotional state, which came about as a result of being frustrated about my acne, adopted a positive outlook and starting doing research on my own. I was going to do it without restricting my diet too much. I was a wife and a mom to a 5 year old so I had to eat well and nourish myself so I was able to take care of my family and home. Plus I love food, so I wasn’t going to deprive myself of it.
I experimented with food, natural face masks and my lifestyle. Within 2 weeks I saw a change. After years, and don’t ask how much money, I saw a glimmer of hope. I was beginning to see my skin start to clear up.
I even went out for dinner without makeup, something I had not done in a long, long time. I thought my skin was amazing. This was me a few months later.
My confidence levels soared. I was happy with my skin for the first time in 22 years.
Come join me to know more about my journey. I’ll not only tell you what I did, I’ll tell you how I did it.
