A fabulous and very honest update from Freyja.
‘Yes I still get the odd break out and yes it makes me feel self conscious and miserable but compared to 3 years ago this is nothing!
I suffered with severe acne from the age of 14 and struggled to find any products or medication that helped, until I starting using Lustre Pure Light. Anything you try takes time to work, you just have to be patient, however, within only a few weeks I could see a difference in my skin from using the Lustre Pure Light machine and from then onwards I am still using the same machine everyday, twice a day, no matter how clear my skin is.
I cannot recommend this product enough, it’s a natural, harmless product that is easy to use, compared to all the creams, gels and medications that make your skin dry, cracked and sore. Currently, each day I use the machine for 20 minutes, as soon as I’ve taken my makeup off after college. I even do my homework whilst using the machine as it’s so easy to wear. It honestly helps massively and I believe this machine is what prevented me from scarring when I had severe acne.
If you’re having problems yourself or if there’s anyone you know of, I would highly recommend Lustre Pure Light, this product changed my life.’

So how does Acne start? All human skin is actually alive with bacteria; it lives in our skin, and some of it within its little openings, right where the hair sprouts out. When these little pores become blocked with dead skin and excessive oil (aka sebum), the bacteria multiply underneath and contribute to inflammation. This … ContinuedRead more
