THE PEACE OUT DIARIES: WE’RE COMING CLEAN

March 26 2021

Three Peace Out teammates share their journey with acne, tips for cleansing with our Cleansing Blemish Balm, and past cleansing mistakes.

SARAH, 23, Social Media & Partnerships Manager 

  • Tell us about yourself

Hi! My name is Sarah, I'm 23 and I am the Social Media & Partnerships Manager at Peace Out Skincare! I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and love to explore new places, play with my dog, go on hikes, and try new foods!

  • What is your #1 skin insecurity?

My top skin insecurity is definitely my acne. I have had acne since middle school and it is always something that I've struggled with.

 

  • How did you feel being a part of the Cleansing Balm photoshoot and campaign?

Being a part of the Cleansing Balm campaign was truly empowering. If I would have told my middle school self that I would be modeling with no makeup on and celebrating my true skin, I would've thought I was crazy! It was such an empowering and eye-opening experience. Since then, I have felt much more confident in my natural skin and more comfortable without makeup on.

 

  • Why do you love the cleansing balm?

I love the cleansing balm! I use it daily on my oily, blemish-prone skin. I love that it instantly reduces redness from my blemishes and leaves my skin ultra-smooth. My skin definitely feels happier since I started using it.


JENNY, 30, Marketing Manager 


  • Tell us about yourself

  • Hi! My name is Jenny, I'm 30 and I am the Marketing Manager at Peace Out Skincare! I studied Fashion Merchandising & Business at Marist College and have had so much fun working in the marketing industry since I graduated in 2012. I lived in NYC for many years, and then moved back home to the Bay Area! I live with my husband and my dog Chewey. I absolutely love working out, making people laugh, working on such an amazing team, and spending time with my friends & family!


  • What’s your number #1 skin insecurity?

  • My number #1 skin insecurity is the fear that people are judging me over my acne and feeling unattractive.


  • How did you feel being a part of the Cleansing Balm photoshoot and Campaign?

  • It was absolutely amazing to be a part of this campaign! It truly helped build up my confidence especially at the end of 2020 when it had been such a rough year not only for my mental health, but for my skin. 


  • Why do you love the cleansing balm?
  •  

    The balm has been a game changer to my routine helping prevent and heal my breakouts. I love pairing the balm with our Peace Out Acne Serum! 


    MAGGIE, 25, Graphic Designer 


  • Tell us about yourself

  • My name is Maggie and I am a graphic designer based in the Bay Area. I am a collector of trinkets, lover of vintage, and creator of things. In my free time, I enjoy going to estate sales, having picnics, and discovering new music. As a child of Vietnamese refugees, my personal mission is to give my elders a life of ease and comfort after working so hard to raise me to where I am now.


  • What’s your number #1 skin insecurity?

  • I am insecure about my skin’s rough texture. It seems to run in my family, but on the bright side we get to recommend each other new skincare products to try.


  • How did you feel being a part of the Cleansing Balm photoshoot and Campaign?

  • I felt empowered and confident to display my skin as-is. My redness, blemishes, and “imperfections” are exactly why I am an Acne Champ. Being a part of the photoshoot first forced me to overcome my insecurities of showing my bare skin to the camera, but after having so much fun on set, I didn’t care much about those blemishes. Since then, I’ve reduced my skin goals to something simple and realistic. I just want my skin to be healthy, not perfect.


  • Why do you love the cleansing balm?

  • I love that I can feel instant results. My skin (and hands) feel soft and hydrated. The exfoliation is super gentle and I haven’t had a problem with it damaging the surface of my skin. Cleansing balm leaves my skin clean and prepared for the next steps in my skincare routine.
