"I was so embarrassed when I started getting acne in my late 40s"
Clair shares her battle with acne triggered by perimenopause, what she went through and how 47 Skin has helped her.
Hi, my name is Clair. I’m 57 years old and 5 years post menopause and about 10 years post perimenopause. It was around that time that I started experiencing outbreaks on my skin in the form of deep cyst-like spots all over my face.
I couldn't believe I was suffering with acne at my age, as a woman in my mid to late 40s. I used to be in meetings and feel so embarrassed, thinking that people were looking at my spots. I used to cover them up as much as I could, but the more I was covering them up with make-up, the worse they got. It became this vicious cycle. I just found it really soul destroying.
I've always had a good skin care routine. Since the age of 12, I've always used a cleanser, toner and moisturiser so I just didn’t understand where these spots were coming from. I went to loads of beauticians and skin specialists, and tried lots of facial treatments and products, but nothing seemed to work.
I always got the sense they were just trying to sell me something, and although often what they advised made my skin softer and more hydrated, the outbreaks were still there. I started to feel like I would just be like this forever.
I came across 47 Skin on a Facebook advert and thought it looked really different. I researched it and was really interested in the journey that Nic the founder had gone on. Also, I'm a big fan of silver products so I loved the fact that their products contained silver. I did a skin assessment and bought the Anti- Blemish and Scar Repair 3 step bundle.
When it arrived, I cleansed my skin with the Everyday Cleanser and then applied the Silver Intensive Mask. When I peeled it off, I couldn’t believe how amazing my skin felt! It looked brighter and was so soft, like velvet. I popped the serum on after, and I was so impressed already. When I woke up the next morning, the breakout I was having had almost gone - I could not believe it!
Since then, I’ve been an avid user of 47 Skin. My skin looks and feels so much plumper, my acne has stopped and my scars are disappearing everyday - they're just fading away.
The confidence that it’s given me is just phenomenal. I love the skin positivity message that 47 skin are promoting it just feels like a weight has lifted. Thank you 47 Skin – you’ve literally changed my life!
