"Pamela, thanks for helping me feel beautiful again"
All through middle school and high school, I was the girl with skin that anyone would envy. I hardly ever washed my face, and if I did, it was with some cheap and random over the counter scrub or wash. I bought whatever was on sale and my face was flawless.
Once I got into college and was nearing 20, I started to notice that I got a zit now and then, so I started to consistently wash with Neutrogena products. That sort of worked, until my acne began to get progressively worse and worse until I was in tears by age 23 over the frustration of not knowing what was happening or how to fix it.
I felt embarrassed of my skin and would never go out without lots of makeup on (which still wouldn’t cover it all). I had cystic acne around my chin, jaw and t-zone. It wasn’t just embarrassing, it was painful. I got to a point where I never had an acne-free day. My good days were when I only had a couple pimples and flat red acne marks all over. I felt so self-conscious about all the marks that I thought were forming on my face permanently, and the acne kept coming. I remember dreading swimming because I didn’t want my face to get wet and wash off my makeup. Nothing seemed to work. I gave Proactiv a year to kick in and that didn’t even work. If Proactiv didn’t work for me, I thought nothing would. I really wished I could go to the gym with no makeup and feel confident, but I thought that just wasn’t going to be in the cards for me.
At 24, a friend shared her story with me. She didn’t struggle until her early 20’s, and she didn’t find anything that worked until she tried Ninja Skincare. I contacted Pamela, and from there my story finally shifted for the better. After the first night of using the products, I could see and feel the difference, but there was acne that was deep down from months of incorrect treatment that needed to work its way out. After a few months of consistent use, I got on track toward the best clarity my face has ever had. Today, I am nearing my 27th birthday. and I don’t even need to wear makeup. Even what I thought were going to be permanent red marks and scars are all gone. It’s been over a year since I had a single cystic pimple, and it’s rare for me to get a small painless (no pressure) zit. I feel confident going to the gym without makeup again, and I feel like people can finally see “me” again, and not be distracted by redness or acne on my face. Beach days and pool days aren’t a concern anymore, and I am so grateful not only for this company and their products, but for their leadership’s thoughtful, personal, and patient kindness. Pamela, thanks for helping me feel beautiful again, my face has never been clearer!
