For those of you that don’t know, I began struggling with my skin at a very young age. Growing up, hiding my skin became a regular thing to do. No matter what the situation was, it was very rare to ever get a glimpse of it.
Feeling the way I did for so long, my only goal was to try to find a way that other people wouldn’t have to go through, what I had gone through. In other words, helping other people find their true skin the same way I did - mentally & physically by promoting mental health, gut health & skin health all in one.
Here is my story.
The day I found out I had my skin issue, I was about 6 years old.
I was in my home playing Hide and Seek.
As I came out from my hiding spot I noticed a strange itchy feeling in my skin, moments later - red, scaly spots covering my arms & legs.
At the time, my dad was really distraught over this, not wanting it to affect my life the way he knew it would, & little did I know, he was right.
As I got older, the more insecure I became.
For almost 3 years straight, I made sure to never be seen in a shirt that could show my arms or pants that could show my legs. I truly lived in jackets & jeans so that no one could see the scaly patches that covered my elbows & legs.
I never wore anything that could show my skin.
This started to become something that ruled my life.
It spread to my stomach, my back, my ears, my neck,
& soon enough, my face.
I was then on a journey that felt life long, to find something that would help.
I started experimenting with every product & raw ingredient I could get my hands on. Mixing each of my favorite formulas with a tincture of CBD.
After doing this for several years, & every time, almost thinking I found what my skin needed, nothing was ever quite there. I then finally decided that it made the most sense to take the knowledge I then had, with the ingredients I knew my skin loved & create something myself.
hide&seek is not only vegan, cruelty-free, chemical-free & clean ingredient filled but it is a uniquely formulated product created with empathy, understanding & hope that it can help others take the first step to bettering their skin health the same way it did for me.
Committing to self care & focusing on the steps I needed to take was when I saw the biggest transformation - & using this cream allowed me to commit to myself & commit to my skin even more.
Feeling so insecure at such a young age is something I would never wish upon anyone. Trying to recover from those feelings were hard, but it was something I am proud to say, made me who I am today.
So now that you are here, its time to stop hiding, because we hope to have found what you’ve been looking for.
