When I was 14, I Suffered from my very first Acne Breakout.
Everybody said that it was part of growing up... but it was equally as bad when I was 25.
I've faced rejections after rejections, from both relationships and job interviews
It was painful mentally, physically and emotionally...
Every time look into the mirror it feels as though I’ve let myself go.
All I see is someone who doesn't care
Every time I try to dive into skincare to find a cure, the vast amount of products available scares me. It was OVERWHELMING.
Fast forward to the most exciting, yet scary moment in my life
My sister gave birth and lucky for me, her husband was too afraid to witness that miracle.
Baby Ben was born, but he didn't look...normal...
His skin was in a yellowish, light mustard color!
We were in a state of panic. It felt like I had a pit in my stomach... We thought that there were some SERIOUS health complications.
Panic filled the room, except for the Doctor and nurses who were as calm as a millpond.
He placed Baby Ben in an incubator that has blue lights all around it. It looked like something out of a sci-fi movie!
I can’t help but think what are they even doing
I asked the doctor what are they doing to the baby and the doctor explained that the blue lights emitted helped kill bacterias deep under the skin promoting more healthy skin
It’s kinda like going into a tanning bed, but coming out with a much cleaner and healthier skin instead!
That was some cool information but I didn't think that it was useful to me at that time and it just slipped off my mind
Years later, about to "Celebrate" the day I turn into the big 4-0, my acne got even more serious.
I was desperate...
I went to the closest dermatologist that was 13 miles away from me and received a blue light treatment to kill any Acne causing bacterias.
The moment the blue lights turned on, it brought me back to the day where little Ben, was born... The exact state of panic, heart dropping moment, it feels as though I was reliving it!
After a couple of treatment, the acne reduced by a significant amount
I finally knew the experience of having good skin!
The confidence, the power I felt, it was thrilling. I became more sociable, friends and family were amazed.
I even posted a lot of selfies online like never before
BUT it didn’t last long…
My Acne broke out again
The treatment was too costly for me and I did not have time to travel 13 miles there and back every week!
I needed something affordable and something that I can do it all by myself
I needed that same blue light machine that was used in the dermatologist clinic... BUT portable so I can use it at home!
After months of research and development, I created my very own blue light device, called LumiBLUE®
Not only it reduces and controls my Acne, but it also brought me back to my strong state and most importantly, it gives me peace of mind to not worry about my skin anymore.
