5 Tips on Setting Boundaries (& Why It's Important!)
Happy Graduation season to all! I can’t believe my time as a student has finally come to an end. It feels like just yesterday I was debating whether to pursue a PharmD or an MPH… and here we are <3 Anyway, I just wanted to share one product that has helped my skin tremendously (and what actually contributed to my cute grad pics!). I’m currently on Month 5, and wow — the results have been nothing short of amazing!
I’ve battled hormonal acne circa teenage Shazie years. I tried everything from Proactiv, Curology, birth control, no dairy diet, etc and NOTHING. It really began taking a toll on my self-confidence bc even though I was working out and living my best life, I just hated looking in the mirror.
Fast forward to December 2018, I decided to give Alani Nu’s Balance a try. I’ve been an avid follower of Katy Hearn and Haydn Schneider since forever ago. I first started following Katy for her workout videos and then over time, I began more invested in their story (like hello Baby Axel!) They started Alani Nu, a line of health and wellness products and being the avid follower that I am, I had trust in their products.
I didn’t like what birth control was doing to me, so I stopped it late last year.
Around the same time, I read nothing but great reviews about Balance, so I decided to give it a try. The first month was weird for me only bc my body was readjusting to life after birth control. The second month was when I began seeing changes in my skin. I still try to eat healthy throughout the week, and I work out as well, so I didn’t change anything else.
What I like about Balance is how I feel when I’m on it. I don’t feel sluggish, in fact I feel energized. You just take four pills and bam!
According to Alani Nu’s website, Balance is designed to support hormonal balance, weight management, complexion, and fertility. Enjoy restorative sleep, improved energy levels, and more.
You can choose to either open up the capsules and mix it with your smoothies, food, etc or just take the four capsules with water like I do. I try to mix it up, but for the most part, I swallow 2 pills at a time. I personally have not stopped using this product since I started and for GOOD REASON. It is literally the ONLY product I’ve gotten that has actually changed my skin.
You know how you fall trap to those consumer product reviews and get excited that it would work for you, but alas, the combination just doesn’t seem to work? Well, this one actually works.
Now that I have my hormones back in place, I plan on focusing on reducing my scars but until then, I’m glad scars are all I have to worry about (besides the occasional hormonal pimple here and there).
Thank you Hayden and Katy for this life-changing product. This is NOT sponsored. I just love it that much.
