The natural skin care fix for adult acne and cystic acne12 May 2017
One of the biggest myths of skin care is that serious skin problems can be fixed ‘instantly’—overnight or in a couple of days.
Yes, of course you can use harsh products to dry up a pimple. But we alll know what happens after that.
The trouble with 'instant’ results is that's it's just a band-aid solution. They usually don’t last very long. Then, the problem returns, often much worse than before.
Natural skin care will give skin what it needs to repair and improve - for good. That's if, of course, the natural skin care is made from synergistic combinations of freshly hand-made, active plant extracts.
There will be initial improvement but skin needs time to transform and heal. This transformation takes a bit longer than ‘instantly’—but the results last and last.
Take Brooke Borellini’s story.
"At age 23 I suddenly had adult onset acne..
After getting through my teenage years with only the odd breakout, acne now invaded the skin on my face and neck.
As my skin worsened I started to lack confidence. All I wanted was for my skin to clear as quickly as possible. I used lots of products to try and do this, including well known brands. One was Proactive – all this did was irritate and burn my skin. Nothing seemed to work, everything I tried seemed to make my skin worse.
I consulted my doctor and discussed other options of treatment. These included using antibiotics, other drugs and cosmetic procedures, all of which were costly and carried the risk of side effects. I was not sure what to do as I did not want to use these harsh products.
Help at last for severe (cystic) acne
Fortunately a friend I worked with had previously worked with David and Robin at Simplicité and knew the high quality of their products and their history of results. She convinced me to give these products a try.
I met David and Robin personally and found the help and professional service they offered to be very welcoming. They gave me a suggested regime of health tips and product recommendations - for treating what they called cystic acne.
The Simplicité routine for clearing acne
I started with the internal remedy Herbal Skin Cleanser capsules and the Combination Oily Trial Pack.
I also used two Simplicité Intensive products; Acne Anti-Bacterial Serum and the Waratah and Beetroot Plant Nutrient Mask. Later I also added the Exfoliating Face Treatment as a mask to ‘draw’ impurities.
From the first use I fell in love with the products as they felt so soothing and smelt wonderful.
Within one month the aggressiveness of the breakouts was slowing down and my skin was starting to calm. I visited Simplicité regularly to show David and Robin the great progress. In the dryer colder winter weather I added the other Basic Six product Sage Face Oil to my routine, applying it under the day creme.
Four months into the treatment I felt and looked like a new person!
I I didn’t have to use the Acne Anti-Bacterial Serum anymore because I was no longer suffering from new breakouts—theacne had cleared!
Help for acne scarring
There was residual scarring however and I was concerned this would be a long term problem.
Simplicité was the answer yet again, with the introduction of the Anti-Oxidant Plant Serum (reduces acne scarring) to my treatment. This is one of my favourite products - it feels and smells fantastic. (In three months of using this product twice daily the scarring was completely gone.)
I also started using the Rosehip & Lavender Complexion Refiner (rub off mask). This gives my skin such a clear, fresh look.
It took four to five months my skin to recover from the severe acne I suffered from, then another couple of months to get rid of the resulting scarring.
I say with all confidence that I believe that Simplicité can do the same for anyone.
My skin continued to improve
I religiously continue to use the Simplicité Basic Six products as well as the Anti-Oxidant Serum. I also enjoy the beautiful range of body products.
12 months later as I write this testimonial I can honestly say that my face is not just pimple free, but also that my skin is better than ever before. And I feel ecstatic!
I give a huge thank you to David and Robin for their dedication and commitment, not only for creating Simplicité products but also for their ongoing support and care.
