It wasn’t just my height, you know? I have PCOS and my hormones were so erratic that I had cystic acne until college. I can feel people just staring at my face and not really paying attention to what I’m talking about. I lost a couple of opportunities too because of it. This gave me so much anxiety and I tried almost everything to get rid of it (this is why I take so much care of my skin now because I don’t want this to happen all over again).

Check the social media page of Maxi-Peel because they will show the skin progress. But please keep in mind that the focus here is not just to remove the pimples or have better skin – the real purpose is empowerment. To boost their self-belief and overall confidence. It is all about facing challenges, one at a time and knowing that it is just a phase.
Remember, if you are going through some hardships right now, you can get past this. Don’t quit and never stop trying to be the best that you can. I know it can be hard and tough but always find something to look forward to ❤
