Hi, everyone. My name is Philippa, and I just wanted to talk to you a little bit today about skin positivity.
My acne used to upset me so much that my now husband and I were actually living together before I let him see me without make-up on. It seems like madness now, but at the time, I was so anxious that he would think I was ugly and he would leave me, which, of course, he didn't.
It really has been a battle with my skin. I started suffering with my skin from around the age of 12 years old, I used to pile on the make-up, even at that young age. Sometimes people would say to me that I had good skin but I would never believe them.
Because to me, the spots on my face were the only thing that people would see. In reality that wasn't the case. And I see that now
But at the time it really took a hold of me.
I was obsessed with my skin and trying to hide away. So when I discovered 47 Skin and experienced what it was like to have clear skin for the first time, it was amazing.
It's not perfect because my skin is never going to be perfect. I don't think anybody has completely flawless perfect skin. I'm sure everybody has things that they don't like about it. But for me, this is the best my skin has ever looked.
I can go make up free and it's absolutely liberating! Yes, sometimes I get spots but that's just me. We only get one skin, and I can finally say that I am happy in mine.
