Acne Is Painful: Inside & Out

Acne hurts, it is uncomfortable and can play with your mind.  Those who struggle with acne will attest to the challenges caused daily in both self image and skin discomfort.

Whether it’s mom holding her new baby covered in acne, a teenager strolling the halls of their school or an adult who has experienced this as a life long struggle, it’s painful.  As a result acne control has bloomed into a massive industry with over $1 billion spent in North America annually.  Chemically laden solutions or antibiotic medications are not the answer.

At a presentation I did years ago, a young married woman approached me asking if I could help her.  She and her husband had decided it was best for her to stop taking the heavy medication she was taking to control her acne so that they could attempt to have their first child.  Her face had exploded in acne breakouts.  I suggested using the Norwex Body Pack and the Aloe Gel.  Four months later her skin was completely clear and she became a consultant.

Note that it is not uncommon for you to experience a bit of an increase in acne when you first start using the body pack.  The exfoliation you experience by using the cloths is like going for a facial.  They will clean out your pores and remove what you didn’t realize was hidden under the surface.  But stick with it, once your face has been completely cleaned…  your skin will stay nice and clear!

My friend’s daughter struggled with keeping her acne under control, until her mom brought home a microfiber cloth.

“When I was in grade six, my acne spiraled out of control. I was breaking out all over my forehead, chest, and back, so badly that some days I was embarrassed to go to school. I convinced my mom to let me cut my bangs, and we invested in a multitude of cosmetic products to conceal the pimples I had acquired. We had spent hundreds of dollars on acne medication, different face washes , moisturizers, scrubs, and makeup to conceal my scarred skin. Then, just before going into grade seven, my mom began selling Norwex. What a blessing this was for me and my skin. We purchased the Body Pack, a pack of microfiber face cloths used with only water, and I began to use them morning and night. Not only did they drastically cut down the amount of acne I was getting, but I no longer felt guilty spending so much money on ways to try and fix my acne. I could forget about the temporary aid that my ever-changing skin care regimen was giving me, and just use the cloths. I still use these everyday, increasingly satisfied with their ability to remove my dark eye makeup. I just rinse them out with a little Norwex Stain Remover after each use, and they’re good to go. I am now in grade eleven and can happily say I am no longer embarrassed by my skin. These cloths have honestly changed my life.”  -Michaela

After washing her face with the Body Pack cloth, Michaela also uses Norwex Aloe Vera Gel under her makeup.

If you do not launder your cloths weekly and would prefer to wash them by hand, I recommend using Norwex Stain Remover.  Dilute 1 TBSP Stain remover into 2 cups of water.

The Body Packs are sold in a set of three cloths, and each set is intended to be used for one week (meaning one cloth per 2 days). This prevents the cloth from collecting odour, and enables it to fully do its job.

Michaela still wears makeup however it is now because she likes how it looks, as opposed to feeling the need to conceal skin blemishes. Michaela is “utmost impressed with how much better her skin looks and feels” now that Norwex has been incorporated into her everyday skincare routine.

Michaela’s story is not an isolated testimony.  Here is a picture from another very delighted young lady who shared her journey and struggle with acne too.

now.  She has people from her school asking her how she cleared her face.” 

“Thank you Norwex for not only finding a healthy way to clear up my daughter’s face but to put a smile on her.”    — Mom
