"My first major skin problem was perioral dermatitis, POD, that broke out during my pregnancy. That’s when I woke up to the so-called chemical load in cosmetics and how it can affect both me and the environment. I switched almost all my products to natural cosmetics and I started researching and studying INCIs. My skin settled within a few months and POD hasn't bothered me since.
Last fall, however, I had an outbreak of hormonal acne. That’s when I started to understand what holistic skin care is. I cleaned up my diet, started to appreciate sleep in a whole new way and updated my skincare products to meet my skin's new needs. My skin was much better than fall, but something was still missing. I did so much to take care of my skin (nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress reduction, gentle skin care), but it was just still inflamed all over and it was frustrating.
I found Laponie's products and ended up ordering the Clarifying Serum. I got the Gel Cleanser, too, as a gift with purchase, but I decided to start with one product first. The serum was exactly what my skin needed, and with just a few ingredients, which has been one of my criteria since the POD. I've been using the serum less than a couple of weeks and I cannot believe that after starting it, I have not gotten a single deep, painful pimple! Inflammation is visibly reduced. In the picture, the one to the right was taken today, and the one to the left about a month ago (in the condition my skin was before using the serum). Instead of inflammation, my skin now has scars from old impurities. Coincidence or not, I believe this product has really helped because I've changed nothing else. I really look forward to the long term effects of the product.
I want to thank you for the great products and values with which you operate. At worst, skin problems affect one's desire to face other people and cause self-loathing. I don’t want that for anyone, so you’re really at the heart of it all. Thank you!"
