Have you ever heard of acanthosis nigricans? Yeah, neither had I until I started learning more about PCOS. Acanthosis nigricans is a skin condition very similar to eczema! Because PCOS patients tend to have insulin resistance, the high insulin levels in our bodies can cause skin problems.
I have struggled with this issue on my elbows for many years, not knowing what to do about it. It’s embarrassing to say the least. For the longest time, I have been SO scared to wear short sleeves.
I am so thankful for a sweet friend’s gift a few months ago. Natalie makes her own essential oils and skin product. I am a fan of all natural, so you can imagine my excitement when the hubby came home with these sweet gifts in hand (he works with Natalie’s boyfriend, Gunning).
I have been using the oil ever since. I am almost done with the bottle, so guess I’m going to have to purchase some from her soon!
I use the oil on my elbows every morning, by just using one drop and rubbing it in. The face scrub, I use every Sunday as a part of my self-care Sunday! It smells so good, and makes my face feel clean and soft!
If you aren’t a believer in essential oils, please reconsider! This oil has cleared up my skin conditions, and I couldn’t be more grateful!
I can’t wait to wear short sleeves this summer, and feel confident when I do!!! Thank you Natalie for the most precious gift of summer confidence!
