Tell us about your journey in skincare
"I have tried Proactive, multiple drug store options, Curology, and prescriptions from a Dermatologist. None of them worked for me. Some would appear to have instant results but would quickly go away. I was given very harsh and stripping products. Eventually my Dermatologist said the last option for me was Acutane which I expressed was not something that was an option for me. That was years ago and I’ve felt helpless ever since just trying to find something that worked for me."
What were your skin concerns?
"I’ve had acne since I was a young teen, I’m now 23. Over time I developed more hormonal and cystic acne. I have oily-sensitive skin. I experience redness, clogged pores, irritation, hyperpigmentation, and scaring. It got worse the older I got.
How has HelloAva helped?
"When I finally decided to try HelloAva, I was beyond impressed. I thought it was too good to be true. Kathleen got back to me the next day with a complete routine and answered all of my questions. I had questions about brands, ingredients, and why I should be using the products suggested to me. Kathleen taught me that I needed to repair my moisture barrier and be gentler with my skin. This is the exact opposite of what I've been told in the past so I was nervous at first. But, Kathleen made me feel confident in the suggestions and let me know that HelloAva was just a text away if I needed anything. Having the convenience to text photos and talk to a professional made me feel heard. I would’ve never known about these products or thought they were for me and now I don’t want to use anything else. I felt a difference on day 1 and I’ve seen huge results within the last 2 weeks."
