This past year brought a lot of changes. Our family grew. We had to find our new normal again. It’s challenging to adjust when you feel like you just got used to a way of life. But life, as we all know it, changes. What I am learning this year is that I need to have something constant that will keep me grounded. I’ve learned this year that I need to make time for myself. I am not talking about being selfish. I am referring to really being intentional on taking care of yourself. A lot of you know by now that we have been Vegan for almost a year. Our family did it for health reasons. Ryan and I have noticed a major difference in how we feel. We still have health and fitness goals that we have yet to accomplish and we are taking baby steps towards that goal. One of the major changes that I’ve noticed with my health is that I stopped breaking out. I feel so much more confident in myself. I don’t feel like I have to cake makeup on to coverup something that I’ve struggled for years. Even though my acne has cleared up, it definitely has left its mark on my face. I have scarring on my cheeks from years of struggling with it.
I am learning to take care of myself inside and out. This is why I am currently using skincare products by Banish as well as a helpful tool called Banisher 2.o. It basically works like a stamp. It has 24K gold plated bristles that help combat acne scars. So I use the stamp on my face about once a week and then apply the banisher oil afterwards. After you use the stamp, the cap that comes with it can be used as a holder for some alcohol to keep the bristles sanitary in between uses, especially if you have active acne. I have been using their products for almost a month now and I can definitely see how much smoother those scars are.
If you struggle with acne like I did or have scarring afterwards. These products are for you. They are 100% organic. Made with plant based, pure ingredients that you can pronounce. They contain no dyes, fragrances, silicone fillers, or parabens. I used to be that person that would buy a skin care product because it smelled good. Eventually I realized that my skin was overreacting because I was using products that were irritating my skin instead of helping it to heal.
One of my favorite products to use now is the Pumpkin Enzyme Masque. It smells like a pumpkin and it tingles for a little bit when you apply it. My skin is so soft and so dewy afterwards. I love it. I share it quite frequently on my Instagram stories.
I have partnered with Banish to offer you guys a discount on these products. You can click here and use my code BEYOU5 at the checkout to get your discount. If you know of someone that is struggling with acne or scarring from acne, be sure to share this information with them.
PS. I only partner with companies and products that I strongly believe and use myself. Banish is one of them.
Here is to a new year and new beautiful skin. Treat yourself, because you deserve it.
As always…. :)
