“Every day I’d take off the mask and I’d be like: "Yeah, my skin is terrible." I'd say it before anyone would ask me about it. I just wanted to be the one to say it because I knew it was on everybody's mind”, Kate tells us. She’s had a long journey with acne, looking for a solution that could make her skin healthier. But she wanted to find something that wasn’t too harsh on her skin and without the side effects of stronger prescription products: “I was on like two antibiotics, and I went to a dermatologist, and he suggested that I go on real Accutane which is, you know, so strong. And I really didn't want to go on Accutane because I know there are some side effects.” Kate was noticing her skin every morning in the mirror and thinking: "How am I going to get rid of this?" But others also noticed and she remembers one story especially well: “I teach really young children and they're just so brutally honest. And one day I lifted up the mask and one of the children was like: "Miss Prendergast! What's that on your face?" And another one then said: "Sometimes I get a shiver down my spine when I see something scary, and I just got a shiver down my spine”, she says while laughing. And yes, most of our users can laugh about their situation at this point - at least to some extent. Just like Kate does. But we all know it’s not at a laughing matter when you’re dealing with severe skin issues.
Kate is 25 and lives in Ireland. She's been struggling with acne since she was 17. Kate has been using NØIE since May, 2021.
