It was an ordinary thing, really. I was putting on a dress I had made to take a few quick photos. I’ve done it a hundred times. I pulled back my hair, put on a quick coat of mascara and some lip gloss, and got the camera ready.
After taking the photos, I came back to the computer to do some editing and that’s when it hit me.
My skin looked good. It looked healthy and fresh. I kept staring at the photos, not really believing that that was my skin and that I didn’t have any makeup on it.
I’ve struggled with my skin for as long as I can remember. Acne, dullness, dryness, and of course the bags under my eyes that are always there. In short, I always have to edit my face in photos so I’m not embarrassed. But not this time.
And while the dress is cute, its not the star of the photo to me. (Its a Mouse House Creations Ladie’s Janie, by the way.)
So why am I sharing this? Because I always thought I had to deal with my skin’s issues–that they were just what they were. But I was wrong. You don’t have to simply put up with skin concerns and now that I know that, I am sad I wasted so much time being embarrassed by my skin.
I don’t want that for you. So that’s why you’re going to see some Rodan + Fields posts and information here at Mabey She Made It. That’s why I’ll share some of the products that have changed how I feel about myself and my skin. I want better for you, and these are the products that can change your life too.
I would love to help you find the right solution for your skin concerns. I’d love to see your confidence grow as you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
