I have always had pretty good skin. As long as I eat right (no sugar for me), I don’t get acne or oily areas on my face. So when the other month this suddenly changed, I had no idea why it was happening.
My first plan was to wash my face more often and watch what I ate more closely. But until I decided to say an affirmation, there was no change.
Then, I wrote this sentence in my journal: “My skin is totally clear.”
I didn’t repeat it over and over. I didn’t put a picture of an airbrushed supermodel on a vision board.
I just went on with life.
The next day, I saw an improvement in my skin, and by the end of the week, I was back to my old acne-free self.
