Skin + Me Stories: Sasha + Clear Skin

As much as we love sharing customer success stories, we think it’s just as important to highlight the skincare journeys that don’t always follow the smoothest path. Setbacks and challenges can often occur with prescription skincare, but with perseverance and coaching the results are worth it. Achieving your skin goal takes time, dedication, and often a little extra expert advice to reach the finish line. 

With that in mind, we’ve reached out to real Skin + Me customers who met their skin goals, with a few consultations and formulation tweaks along the way. Today, Sasha, a 21-year-old NHS Health Care Support Worker from South Wales shares her story

Tell us about your skincare journey

When I was in my teens I never knew anything about skincare. I used makeup wipes and that was it –  I never cleansed or moisturised. I never had problematic skin back then; the odd pimple or two would pop up but nothing major that made me want to look into skincare. As the pandemic started in March 2020, I started having to wear masks 12.5 hours a day, 3–4 days a week.

This is when my skin started to become a problem. I was getting horrific breakouts, and was so self-conscious about it, so I started to learn about skincare through TikTok, YouTube videos and Instagram pages. That brings me to where I am today! I have been using Skin + Me for six months and have my own skincare page on Instagram where I offer advice for others who are struggling.

How has the process been overall? 

I’ve had good and bad months. If I felt like an ingredient needed to be changed or my Tretinoin had to be decreased, I emailed Skin + Me, did a re-consultation and they quickly responded and sent me out a new Daily Doser which was really helpful.

What are your future skin goals?

I now want to treat the hyperpigmentation that has been left by previous acne, and my Daily Doser has already been adapted to help with this!

What advice would you give to someone struggling with their Skin + Me prescription?

Don’t struggle – seek help from the Dermatology Team, do a re-consultation and have things changed!
