My Skin Story … And Why I’m an R+F Consultant

I think a lot of people in my life were surprised when I told them I decided to become a Rodan + Fields consultant. “Why?” they asked. Let me tell you.

I’ve struggled with my skin for more than half my life. It was like puberty hit, and the zit fairy came to town for good. In sixth grade, a kid called me pizza face. That sh*t stays with you.

Accutane at 16 followed by several rounds of microdermabrasions helped kick it in the butt, but I still struggle with maintaining a clear complexion to this day. Let’s just say looking in the mirror and being embarrassed with what you see is an awful feeling.

I always said that if I had any medical inclinations (I don’t) I would be a dermatologist, so I could help others who had similar struggles. But that dream was simply a “what if” thought. Instead, I just gained a strong interest in investing in my skin, learning about different skincare products and most importantly, learning makeup tricks to hide my problematic skin.

A girl I used to work with has been a consultant for two years, and her posts always intrigued me. The before and after pictures she shared of people’s personal results with acne, wrinkles, etc., were incredible. What if those products were what I had been searching for and I was too stubborn to ask about them?

So one day, I got the nerve to message her on Facebook. And I’m so glad I did. After a few conversations and MANY questions, I decided to take the plunge. I began using the acne Unblemish regimen, liked what I saw within the week, bought a business kit and decided to never look back. It was a 60-day empty bottle money back guarantee. What did I have to lose?!

Before I go any further, let me put this out there. I absolutely love my career. I’m a full-time Account Manager—just got promoted, woohoo!—at a communications firm and love what I do. It’s fulfilling, keeps me busy and makes me feel valued every day.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to be challenged in different ways. To learn a new skillset. Meet new people. Be embraced by a new group of women who are entrepreneurs all with very different backgrounds.

So far, I’m having a blast. If ever that should change, I’ll reevaluate it. But all I know now is my skin is glowing, people are noticing and I’m a part of a brand that has become the No. 1 premium anti-aging and acne skincare brand. It’s broken international boundaries and is on its way to No. 1 overall—who wouldn’t be a part of a successful business like that?!

If you don’t care about me becoming a consultant or don’t want to learn more, that’s fine. It doesn’t bother me. If you think I’m crazy, you’re probably right—but for different reasons I won’t go into here. 🙂 If you want to learn more, shoot me a Facebook message.

I’ll be sharing my own results soon. Until then, thanks for your support.
