One of the places I love to hang out on the internet is in our Radiant Rebel Facebook Group.
It’s a place for community, for support, for fun.
It’s also a safe place for exploring the ins and outs of rebuilding a positive relationship with our skin.
Recently, one of our radiant rebel group members, Amy, shared a snapshot from her skincare + self-care journey.
I believe it’s a snapshot that many of us can relate to, so I asked her permission to reshare here on the Grounded Sage Blog.
Amy, a desert marigold skin type, graciously said yes to me resharing her post, which you’ll find below.
I am having such great results using Grounded Sage, compared with what I did for many (many!) years with standard prestige or drugstore commercial skincare.
Because I have always been breakout-prone, I ended up over stripping my skin, damaging my lipid barrier, and actually encouraging inflammation and acne.
I worked in a major US department store with a very active, aggressive cosmetic dept, so I had boxes full of pricey skincare I couldn’t really afford but was pressured to buy since my coworkers assessments depended on our participation.
But I did my skin no favours.
The cleanser/toner/serum/moisturizer systems didn’t help.
Now I know why.
Now I cleanse/hydrate/moisturize and at night add a serum.
Once or twice a week, I mask/exfoliate.
I no longer fear oils as long as they’re the correct oils.
I love what I’m using.
I now look forward to this self-care ritual because I’m seeing real results.
I also experience it, the aromas, the textures. It’s a joy.
Thank you, Jamie Sabot and all at Grounded Sage.
It took me 50 years, but I’m finally loving my skin.
