Veroniccas Aalborg-blog: Skin journey with Aalborg Beauty
Today I am very excited to share that I have decided to start an actual skin treatment to improve my breakouts/acne.
I have had skin issues for as long as I can remember. I used to have a lot of breakouts as a teen which cleared up significantly in my early twenties.
I have never had very serious deep breakouts, but still pretty angry ones that cause discomfort and leave scarring!
About 2 years ago I decided to start on the p-pill which worsened my skin a lot and unlocked my breakouts again.
I quit the pill after a year and my skin instantly improved quite a bit, but still, my breakouts were way worse than before.I usually will get pimples around my jawline or cheekbones.
It’s the kind of breakouts that come and go, and come and go. If you know what I am talking about, you know how frustrating it can be.
I have tried all sorts of products with almost the same unsatisfying results every time. I am, however, always excited to try new things and see how they work.
Aalborg Beauty Clinic
First things first, let me tell you about my experience with the clinic. When I first went there to have a talk about my situation, I was absolutely blown away by the owner and creator Nikki ( who also practices there).
She is one of the most amazing and inspiring people I have met in awhile. She is definitely my kind of person, and we clicked instantly. Personality wise she is super sassy, bubbly and charming person, with great communication skills.
But most importantly, she is so full of knowledge, she is an absolute expert in her area. In an instant, she busted most of my beauty routines, with an actual scientific explanation of why and how they could be damaging and harmful to my skin.
I love talking about beauty, skin care, beauty products and treatments and it was a privilege to speak with someone so well educated and passionate about it.
I am feeling so inspired and so excited, and even if this treatment doesn’t work as we are planning which of course is very possible, I am so looking forward to doing it. I hope you follow along and I will keep you updated throughout all the steps of the treatment with actual before/after photos 🙂 .
How the treatment is going to go;
In order for the treatment to start, we need to prepare my skin. We need to make sure, that my skin is strengthened and hydrated enough in depth to be able to handle a more aggressive approach which is treating it with fruit acid.
I am starting a new morning and evening routine, that is meant to prepare the skin for the actual treatment. In the next 21 days, I will be using only the products from Nimue that I got at the salon.
It’s a line created specifically for troubled skin. I start with removing my makeup and cleaning my skin with their cleansing gel followed by a toner/conditioner and finishing with moisturizer.
Here are my before pictures so you can see what we have to work with. I am quite excited to show you after pictures in few months! 🙂 I have some breakouts, blackheads and a lot of scarring we need to take care of.
It takes a lot of work and dedication and I am super excited about it!
Once my skin is ready, we will proceed to the actual fruit acid treatment followed by a scar treatment. I have a lot of scarring already, and I haven’t done much about it, which is super irresponsible, so I am also very excited to put some attention that issue as well.
That’s it for now! I would do a review of the Nimue products after 21 days and update you on my situation. I hope you enjoyed this entry and follow me on my acne journey! I am really excited about it and would love to share the results with you :).
