    Smooth Flawless Skin for Life

    by Esosa E. (also known as 'Raw Girl')

    Having great skin can boost your confidence, mood, and energy. As someone who suffered from acne, I know firsthand what it feels like to be self-conscious in social situations or professional settings, all because of blemishes on my face. When dealing with acne whether chronic or minor but consistent flare-ups, the first step to change is getting fed up with not looking and feeling your best. After that, you may choose to consult a doctor or dermatologist who will most likely prescribe you a range of lotions, creams, or even hormones to try to control your symptoms. While medical advice is always essential, prescriptions tend to put a temporary band-aid and it's important to address the root problem. If you are truly serious about achieving that seemingly effortless natural glow, here are a few tips I learned from my own journey that helped me achieve flawless skin in the long term.
