Pregnancy Acne: Ellie's Story
Hi, I'm Ellie, and I'm a 47 Skin customer, and I recently became an Ambassador because I felt so passionately about how the brand has helped to change my life.
I've always struggled with my skin, not only in my teens but well into my late twenties – blackheads, whiteheads, blemishes, breakouts, you name it.
But for me, my skin peaked last year when I became pregnant. What should have been such a happy time for me was actually quite a dark time, particularly in the early days where my skin was so red, inflamed and sore.
I found myself quite grateful for the lockdown period and being able to hide my acne away from social situations and being able to turn my camera off on zoom.
So when I stumbled across the 47 Skin brand, I decided to give it a go to see how I got on.
I started with the Anti-blemish & Scar repair serum and I was amazed, just within a week, I noticed that my skin was much less angry and less sore.
I started getting fewer breakouts and those breakouts I did have were clearing up much quicker.
Ever since then, I just bought more and more of the products. So I also now use the Everyday Cleanser and the Silver Mask once a week, and I just feel like me again.
I've regained my confidence. I found that I didn't hide away in my pregnancy so much. And, towards the end of my pregnancy was the most confident I've ever felt!
I had this beautiful blooming bump and this glowing skin which was just so nice, and I will be forever grateful to 47 Skin for giving me that.
And now, as a new mum, I've been really shocked by how little me time I have and how quickly the hours and days go without getting anything done
So for me, it's been really important to have a skin care regime I know works and that's really quick to do in the morning and gives me the confidence to leave the house foundation free, which is something I would never have done before.
And I do it now with confidence which I definitely wouldn't have done before so I'm very grateful for the 47 Skin brand.
