“My acne affected me greatly in [year 10] of high school when it was at its worst. It’s really hard showing up to a school full of 2,000 judging teenagers with a face covered in acne,” he told Mamamia.
“It really knocks your self esteem down, even if you are a confident person. I remember when I was breaking out like crazy, I was so desperate. I can say I read around 100 articles on skincare and what you could do to clear your skin up.”
So eight months ago, after trying various treatments without success, the high school student decided to do something different. After doing his research, Herrejon came up with a nine-step skincare routine to treat his acne.
“The process of healing [my skin] was extremely hard. You get to the point where, after trying out lots of products, you don’t know if your routine will even work so all you can do is hope for the best,” he explained.
Thankfully, those nine products – none of which cost over $35 – helped Herrejon completely clear up his skin in under a year.
The results speak for themselves.
