Yes, I’m one of those girls who’s been participating in pageants since she was 7 years old. I’m 17 now and this will be my last year competing. My plan is to focus on College now and use the money I earned from pageants and saved to focus on studying.
The funny thing is I was never that into dressing up or doing my hair and putting on my mom’s makeup. I was pretty much a tomboy. But growing up with psoriasis was really tough. I was homeschooled for a long time because little kids at school called me leprous. I don’t think they even know what it was! But because it hurt me to hear it, they would keep on calling me that. Dressing up for pageants made me feel like a whole new person and, besides, I could cover up my psoriasis patches with makeup and spray tan. That was the best! It was like they disappeared and for a couple of hours, I felt as normal as any other kid my age.
Although makeup solved the problem temporarily, after the shows my skin would be irritated and the psoriasis patches would look worse. We had to find a way for me to continue the competitions without harming my skin.
FaceDoctor was a godsend! I use both the medicated soap and the beauty cream. They both have the active ingredient sea buckthorn oil, which is like the archenemy of psoriasis and other skin problems, and they keep my complexion healthy and balanced. I also feel I recover faster from a day of shows since I started using these products.
The fact that the products are made with all-natural ingredients makes it safe but effective, which is like having the best of both worlds!
