I had a pretty tumultuous 2016 (didn’t we all?!). I dropped out of college for a while, moved home, started losing my hair, and put on some weight. And although those felt pretty overwhelming at the time, nothing was as bad as the acne and rosacea that had taken over my skin.
I grew up with a naturopath for a mother. Nutrition was her favorite topic, so I maintained a pretty clean diet and beauty regimen before heading to college. Sure, I had experienced a few hormone-related breakouts throughout my teen years, but this kind of skin issue was one I was completely unfamiliar with.
