I started using Curology about 6 months ago, after I suddenly developed tons of acne on the center of my forehead and above my lip. Prior to using Curology, I had tried other acne fighting creams but nothing worked super well. Before I jump right in and talk about Curology, I want to give you some background about my skin.
I started getting little whitehead bumps in 6th grade. My acne wasn’t the worst but it was definitely embarrassing as many of my friends had flawless skin. It took me several years and self experiment to figure out that most of my acne was caused by genetics and partially dairy. While my skin did improve when I cut out dairy, I was still getting whiteheads and sometimes painful cysts on my forehead. Somehow, my skin eventually cleared up on its own junior year of high school.
Towards the beginning of senior year, I started getting big white heads on my forehead and above my lips. Not fun especially since this was the time for school ID pictures and senior portraits! This was the worst my skin had ever been. I was extremely self cautious and embarrassed of my skin especially since I was a swim instructor. After searching the web, desperate to find something that would help my acne, a Curology ad popped up in my instagram feed and I began to do some research and signed up for my free trial.
how Curology works:
Before you sign up, you take a quiz answering questions about your skin concerns (acne, acne scars, wrinkles, etc.) You will also be asked to take pictures of your skin. After completing the quiz, you will be paired with a dermatologist who will create a custom formula for your skin’s need. The provider will send you a notification for a “consultation” listing the active ingredients in your treatment and inform you on what the ingredients are designed to do. Next, the bottle will be shipped right to your door!
I started using Curology late October of 2018 and after using it for about 6 months every night, I see a huge difference in my skin. My acne scars have slightly faded and I rarely get pimples anymore. I must warn you, the first two weeks of using Curology, you might develop tons of pimples because your skin is purging. In my case it lasted about only a week. All the gunk that was under my skin was being brought to the surface of my skin. After the second month, my skin had pretty much cleared up; by the third month, my acne scars were starting to fade. I still use Curology to this day, but not as consistent as before. I use it about 3-4 times a week depending on how my skin is feeling/looking. Overall, I think Curology is the main reason my skin cleared up so quickly! I will be sharing my skincare routine soon for those of you wondering what other products I use!
In the meantime, if you would like to try out Curology for free your first month use this link! I recommend trying out the plan that includes the superbottle, moisturizer, and cleanser if it is your first time and ONLY use those products for one month.
