Skin Concerns: Acne breakouts and stress acne made worse by wrong choice of product, weather conditions and personal issues
Fave BaseLift products: Magic Eraser Kit
Skincare routine: Salma uses her Magic Eraser Kit once a week at night time
Top tip: Salma advises that derma rolling too many times on same spot may be painful and cause redness, what works best for her sensitive skin are perpendicular motions; up, down and sideways to prep her skin for the application of the BaseLift serum
We will never get used to how many of you are out there using BaseLift around the world and will forever be grateful to you all for trusting us with your skin.
We had yet another ‘international chat’ with one of our regular and happy customers! Let me introduce you to Salma and her BaseLift experience which spreads across two different continents!
Salma, is from Egypt and studies architecture in The Netherlands. She is an active, social and sporty young lady who also finds the time in her busy schedule to work as the educational commissioner for her university.
“Prior to using BaseLift products, I was having a bit of a weird year; grieving, travelling back and forth from a cold to a dry country for my studies, and weather conditions flared my stress acne. I even ended up using the wrong type of product which completely dried my skin and made it worse. I felt ‘disgusting’ and kept telling myself, surely this is something I should be able to ‘clean off’. The more I stressed over the situation, the worse it got and I didn’t realise back then that acne is not only about topical hygiene!”
The situation got so bad, it started to affect Salma’s mental health and social activities. She stopped going to her university meetings, she stopped taking pictures, and didn’t try to ‘hide it’ behind layers of makeup as she is had no time to invest into long getting ready makeup sessions and simply wasn’t comfortable with piling lots of makeup on.
“I almost got kicked out of my university position because of my lack of commitment when going through this bad skin phase, which is very not like me. I felt discouraged and did not want to deal with it all. I grew up surrounded by empowering female athletes and could not believe how something ‘so cosmetic’ and related to ‘appearance’ could affect me so much. Fortunately, my best friend was going through something similar at that time and we supported and comforted each other in these dark times. People around said things like ‘get over it, put some makeup on and it will eventually go’, without realising the negative impact your skin’s appearance can have on your mental health. Talking to a friend always helps! My best friend is also a huge BaseLift derma roller fan now!”
Salma, found out about BaseLift through her mom, who had always been a skincare advocate!
“I think it must be part of the Egyptian culture! As far as I can remember, my mom has always taken great care of her skin; by concocting home-made and natural masks and cleansers or by trying products that suit her skin! She looks waaaaay younger than she actually is and it always made me think, I should try this BaseLift derma roller she uses all the time too!”
Salma recalls that picking up BaseLift parcels in Egypt was always like some kind of adventurous road trip with her mom.
“We had to drive all the way to customs, get interrogated about what exactly was in the parcels and it always felt surreal! All of that to get hold of our precious BaseLift derma rollers!” she declares laughing.
Salma has consistently been using BaseLift products for 5 years now. She loves how hassle free the BaseLift Magic Eraser Kit is to use!
“The derma roller is so practical and I absolutely love the serum. I never derma roll on active acne if I get the odd breakout and try and derma roll around pimples. The first time I used the kit I noticed changes after 3 days only! I was shocked! My acne marks, brown pigmentations and spots are now completely gone!”
“Skin concerns can consume you! You will overthink them, try to avoid them, do everything you can to make them go way! But what you need to realise is, the majority of them are temporary! Find the right routine and products that work for you like BaseLift worked for me. Make a ritual out of a skincare routine until it becomes second nature. Take time for yourself, take care of yourself and most importantly, be consistent with your routine”
