Pritchard joined the aesthetic industry to help others with the same insecurity she had with her skin. “Whether its wrinkles, volume loss, acne, or scarring, feeling uncomfortable with how you look can be a devastating feeling,” says Pritchard. Since her breakouts began when she was 14 years-old, Pritchard felt as though she tried over-the-counter remedy before seeking out a dermatologist. “Since then,” she explains, “I have continued to suffer from acne on and off in relation to my hormones, stress, diet, and skincare.”
Anyone experiencing acne breakouts over the age of 25 is considered to be suffering from “adult acne.” Before Juvly, Pritchard was using a prescription medication to help lower her breakout causing hormones. Now, Pritchard is keeping a close eye on her skin with a new and improved skincare regimen recommended by Juvly’s very own CEO, Dr. Justin Harper, to help keep her breakouts in check.
“One important piece of the puzzle for my acne in particular is that I also have eczema,” explains Pritchard. “Which means I have very dry skin and my skin barrier does not function properly. Anything too harsh or too drying makes me breakout even more.” Keeping this information in mind, Dr. Harper was able to create a regimen to target both Pritchard’s eczema and her breakouts, and keep them both at bay. “My skincare regimen is mostly focused on managing my eczema which helps my skin barrier stay strong and keeps my breakouts to a minimum,” says Pritchard.
So we asked her, “What did Dr. Harper recommend for your skin if not using the Obagi CLENZIderm System?” This is what we got:
There’s a science to why she does her morning routine this way. “I only wash my face once per day to keep from over-drying my skin. Normal to oily skin can handle being washed twice per day, but mine gets too dry!” says Pritchard.
Since Pritchard is an acne warrior, she brings her understanding of acne-prone skin to the table when it comes to her job by helping others achieve the look they are going for and obtaining clear, glowing skin at the same time.
