It’s all gone away!
All my life I have suffered with sensitive skin, where I would easily break out with rashes or have minor bites transform into major infections. I have been clinically diagnosed with contact dermatitis, which is a medical term for one’s skin being very allergic to certain substances such as fragrances, materials, oils, etc. In addition to being diagnosed with contact dermatitis, I have a family history of bad acne which I have been battling religiously from a teenager to my mid twenties.
Three months ago I went to the dermatologist to treat my bad acne, and I was given oral antibiotics and two potent topical creams. For the next month I didn’t notice any relative improvement, the only difference was my face was getting more red. I just thought it was acne and continued using the creams. It turns out that the topical creams were giving me a bad allergic reaction. I called the dermatologist and he said to immediately stop using the cream. However the damage was already done and the rash was covering my whole face, with some spots more inflamed than others. In addition, the seasons changing to a more colder environment didn’t help the healing.
For a whole month I battled the rash and I even followed the doctors advice to use a topical steroid to counteract the rash. However
there was slight to little improvement.
During this time, I ordered The Secret book online and started reading the first couple chapters. I asked, believed, visualized, and was grateful for clear skin. When I got The Secret, I also got this nutritional healing book. I did some research on a natural cure for skin rashes. I found out some natural ways to help with rashes such as aloe vera, vitamin C, chamomile, vitamin B complex, as well as a number of different oils.
I was at the supermarket one day and I had this urge to go down this aisle. To my surprise I stumbled on a number of organic products. I bought an organic skin toner and face mask that claimed to improve collagen (generation of new skin cells) and circulation naturally. Since I am hypersensitive to a lot of substances, I consulted my dermatologist and gave him the products I bought. He told me that a lot of the oils in the products I bought can react with the sun and advised me not to use it. Instead he told me to keep on using topical steroids and prescribed me an acne lotion. Weary of putting more acne stuff on my face, I didn’t get the acne lotion, but I followed the advice of the dermatologist and didn’t use the products I bought.
A couple of weeks passed and still no sign of improvement of my skin. It still looked inflamed and I became self-conscious with my face.
Throughout this whole time, I continued meditating and followed The Secret. I even started putting up pictures of myself up of when I had clear skin. I started visualizing clear skin and doing things with beautiful, healthy, and perfect skin.
One night I had a nagging intuition to use the products I bought, despite the doctor’s orders. I entertained the thought then I wouldn’t do it in fear of making my skin worse, however the intuition kept on nagging and nagging within me that the products will improve my skin naturally. I followed my intuition and applied the toner and facial mask. I also discontinued the topical corticosteroids.
Within a few days, I started seeing improvements. I started feeling really overjoyed and continued using The Secret. I began writing “I am thankful. I am grateful for having perfect, beautiful, and healthy skin” every day 15 times. I even started visualizing actually writing this story on The Secret website with perfect, beautiful, and healthy skin.
Shortly, my skin drastically improved, the rashes started drying out, and the inflammation vanished. I am currently continuing the products and my skin is getting better and better each and every day. I am writing this story with a healthier face than a month ago. I am happy and joyful. From my experience, be mindful and in tune with your body and what your body needs. This means being more aware and attending to the needs of your intuition. Your intuition can say a lot to you if you listen to it. Ask, Believe, Receive, and Be Joyful.
