“Try BaseLift! It’s an absolute gamechanger!”
Skin concerns: Adult acne
Fave Baselift products: The Indian Eraser Clay
Skincare routine: Neelam uses her BB Bundle once every weekend for a relaxing pampering session and the Youth Boosting Retinol cream every night before bed. If she has an acne breakout, she avoids using her Derma Roller and finds that upwards derma rolling motions suit her skin better
Top tip: Neelam mixes her Indian Eraser Clay mask with water and a few drops of BaseLift’s Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid serum
In our Transformation Diaries this week, we had an insightful chat with Neelam a Complaint Handler at the Royal Bank of Scotland. Neelam enjoys lazy holidays in sunny countries with her husband, movies, food dates and long drives. Mexico, Thailand, St Lucia and Istanbul are amongst the most gorgeous and interesting places she has visited. Her holiday stories made us want to pack our sunscreen and flip flops to “ANY SUNNY LAND”!
“I’ve been suffering with stubborn adult acne on and off for 6 years, I never let it affect me however I was coming to the point where I was always conscious about how bad it looked. I tried so many products, went to see different doctors and dermatologists… They recommended different treatments which worked only for short periods of time until the next major flare-up – or products that would dry my skin out.”
Neelam admits that at some point she felt so resigned and frustrated that she completely gave up on her skin. She did not know what to do with her face!
“I reached a point of no return! A lot of people do not understand the mental charge that skin issues can cause. My face was literally in pain and sometimes bruised due to minor breakouts. I was stressed, felt defeated specially around the time of my wedding a few years ago and I eventually embraced the fact that I was not going to have the smooth makeup look I dreamt of for my big special day. It was hard to come to terms with this, but hey, I still looked great!”
Through research about different types of acne, Neelam started noticing a pattern in winter when her skin would breakout and flare up.
“The winter months are the harshest ones for my skin but since I discovered BaseLift back in 2018, I can now keep on top of my breakouts and my skin has drastically improved! See, I am not one to go for products recommended by influencers in general but I don’t know what exactly made me want to try BaseLift products when I saw Modest Street talk about the Indian Eraser Clay on Snapchat!”
She was gobsmacked after her first few uses of the Indian Eraser Clay mask! Within the first few days after usage, she noticed a reduction in the redness of her skin. It looked less inflamed, felt lighter, looked less oily and she even noticed what she describes as a “radiant glow”.
“I had an “OMG THIS IS WORKING” kind of reaction! It was the first time I could actually see results! I am extremely happy that I came across your products. I love them! The Indian Eraser Clay mask, the 0.05 Derma Roller, the Vitamin C Serum and the Youth Boosting Retinol cream together have worked wonders for my acne and my confidence. You’ve helped myself and many others who had given up the battle with acne so thank you and well done."
