Acne Uncovered: Acne Treatment Solutions - Sarah's Story
17th September 2014
Blogger of ‘Mum Of Three World’, Sarah Wood from Cheltenham, has been suffering from facial and back acne for over 18 years and shares her story on camera. She explains that although her Doctor has been understanding of her acne she knows that others may not be as lucky, and she has recently discovered sk:n who offer acne treatment under one roof.
Sarah explains how she is 40 years old, and has suffered from acne since she was 12 years old.
She goes on to say "I was the first kid at secondary school to get spots and although mine were never the worst, they were always up there with some of the worst.
"I always thought they'd get better; I thought by the time I was 20 they'd be gone - they weren't, maybe 25 - still weren't gone, 30 - still had spots and in fact they were worst in my thirties than they'd ever been.
"So I've been on medication for acne since I was 16. I would be on a treatment for a few years, it would get a bit better, then it would get a bit worse again, I'd go back to the doctor's, he would change my treatment, again, it would be better for a little while, then it would go back downhill again, I'd go back to my original treatment and so it went on.
"And I looked in the mirror and all I could see on my face was spots and I thought: I don't want to be the spotty person anymore; I want to see what I actually look like underneath the spots. And it wasn't just my face either; it's my back. Nobody sees my back but it can be really uncomfortable. My back's covered in them and if you get your handbag strap, or your bra strap on top of a spot, that hurts.
"But having reached 40 and knowing that the reality was either the menopause if I was lucky, or that I'd be stuck with spots for the rest of my life, I thought it was about time to take that step.
"I recently discovered sk:n clinics who offer a lot more than just medication; they offer consultation, treatments and products, all under one roof to help with your acne."
