This weeks post is a little bit different. It features an aspect of A Savage Body that we have yet to touch on…
How is beauty connected to having A Savage Body?
- Skin is your largest organ.
- It’s your first impression when you make an introduction.
- It impacts how you see your self when you look in the mirror.
- Healthy skin is the first indication of internal fitness and wellbeing.
SO GUESS WHAT?! That makes it a TOP health priority!
You may or may not know this about me, but I have struggled with skin issues for almost my entire teenage and early adult life. It has been something that I was embarrassed by for a long time and I did my best to conceal the problems I was facing. This world we live in is inundated by images of top models on social media. It leads you to believe people are flawless. Rarely do influencers or even our friends express vulnerabilities on public platforms. We all like to project the best, most highlighted version of ourselves. Thats great, but we should also be real and we all face our own challenges! I would be lying If I said I wasn’t a little bit insecure posting this for the world to see.
I’ve made the decision to be open and share my story, so someone else out there might realize they’re not alone!
Anyone who has experienced skin conditions and/or acne knows, it’s a roller coaster! One month may be great, heck… five years could be great (in my case), but skin problems often return and they fluctuate in severity!
While I’ve suffered from Acne and Seborrheic Dermatitis I’ve experienced a lot of different emotions…
Embarrassment being one, but I also experienced denial and helplessness. It came in stages. I hoped one day that my skin would magically clear. When that didn’t work I sought out the help of a Dermatologist who prescribed antibiotics and a topical Retin-A treatment (WHICH WORKED). However, once I stopped using the antibiotics, the breakouts came back and I didn’t want to be reliant on antibiotics for the rest of my life. This was the point at which I felt helpless. At 24 years old, in the best relationship of my life, following my dreams, pursuing health and fitness, I was plagued with adult acne!
I finally reached a breaking point and came to the realization that I needed stop being afraid of my skin and fight back!
Fortunately for me, I found Beauty With A Mission, in Newport Beach! They we’re ready to fight with me! They welcomed me with zero judgement about my skin and have cheered me on every step of the way!
The Team at Beauty With A Mission (especially Miss Abby) crafted a plan just for me!
My specific skincare needs involve combating new breakouts and healing old scarring/damage. I had let things get out of hand for a while so I knew this wasn’t going to be a quick process, but I was ready to put the work in!

I will keep you updated on my progress! Please send over any questions you might have and share your own story with me! Whether that means commiserating or sharing successful skin care tips!
