My Journey to Clear Skin

Raquel Mastrangelo
My Journey to Clear Skin

With our launch for our Beautycounter Countercontrol skin care line for acne and oily skin I wanted to share my experience with acne.

I struggled with acne most of my teen and early adult life and still have the occasional blemishes. As someone who turned to western medicine to treat symptoms instead of finding the underlying cause in the body, I went through the ringer of treatments that compromised my health. I have been on and off strong antibiotics, painful clinical chemical peel treatments, time consuming laser treatments and bottles of various drying prescription topical creams that thinned my skin to try and battle it.  I almost filled a prescription for Accutane when my skin was at its worst but was afraid of the major side effects. I am so glad I skipped that extremely toxic option. 

 

With years of ingesting antibiotics, I did a lot of damage to my stomach and developed food allergies that I still have to this day. I recommend that everyone avoid being on antibiotics for extended periods of time unless you are very ill with a serious bacterial infection as this compromises the healthy bacteria in the body.

 

Something that was introduced to me while attending The Euro Institute of Skin Care, a holistic skin care school, was Chinese Face Mapping.

 

This face mapping chart is similar to one I had in school and I suggest you use it to see what might be causing your blemishes.

I love using these charts as a way of seeing where acne breakouts may manifest from the inside out. 

By taking care of acne from the inside out and with the help of these gentle yet results oriented non toxic skin care products, we can get your skin cleared up in no time. We have a 60 day no hassle return policy so you can try it long term at home. I still get some occasional small blemishes so I have been trying this line out since I received my testers. It works so effectively to clear breakouts and I am not seeing the irritation associated with traditional acne products. 

 

Helping others with their acne struggles is something that I am so passionate about and the reason I became an esthetician. Please feel free to reach out and we can chat about your skin and I can recommend a regimen for you.
