Skincare Stories: Our Very Own COO Jessica McCann
Hi there, Jessica McCann here. COO of Fleur 333 and former acne-sufferer turned sassy, skin-confident, essential oil loving goddess.
Years ago, if you would have told me I would be loving my skin and receiving compliments from both family and strangers about my dewey (thank you mid-day Rose Toner pick-me-up spritz), radiant complexion I would have never, ever believed you.
My skin and I have always battled. For years I suffered from terrible acne. It was the kind a lot of people get during that “awkward phase” of puberty. Only for me, that phase pretty much never ended.
I tried EVERYTHING. All sorts of over-the-counter creams, washes, ointments. Prescription medications (as strong as Accutane) and scarfing down foods that magazines swore would help repair my skin.
Eventually I settled into the fact that I would just never be one of those beautiful, flawless people. But oh how I yearned to be able to just leave the house without having to put pounds of foundation on trying to hide past scars and current breakouts.
I know there are so many who suffer the same way I had. Those experiences led me to this passion that is Fleur 333.
So how did I get here?? My sister, Melissa, began hand-crafting lotions and oils and sending me parcels in the mail. I didn’t ask what they were, nor did I really care at the time, I just used it as ordered. And guess what? Magic happened.
My skin became less angry and irritated. My breakouts slowed and then stopped. My scars healed. My dream of leaving home with no make-up came true. Thanks to my beautiful, amazing, talented sister, Fleur 333 was born, and I had confidence for the FIRST time in my life.
Guys, this is no joke.
These are Mother Nature-loving magic beauty potions. This is skincare on a whole new level. You know why? These do way more than your typical skincare product. These are heal-you-on-multiple-levels essential oils and I am here to tell you it is not just hype.
Yeah yeah, I know what you’re thinking. “Essential oils, hippies, crazy, fad, trend” BLAH BLAH BLAH STOP IT!
Have you ever tried them? The incredible thing about essential oils is that they don’t perform just one function-they do like a MILLION different things (I am pleased to talk to more and more people who have started using them-and yes they’re just as obsessed).
So what do I mean? Let me give you an example. Take the Moon Mermaid Oil (Ahem yes it’s named after me, made specifically for acne-prone skin). Two ingredients in this incredible face oil are frankincense and blue chamomile.
What does frankincense do for you might you ask? To name a few things: high vibration oil, protective, immunity booster, anti-aging, cell regeneration, emotional balance, spiritual awareness, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory (I could go on and on but I’ll spare you my frankincense rant).
Now let's talk about my good friend blue chamomile: powerfully anti-inflammatory, calming, treats acne, eczema, throat chakra, hormonal balance. I could go on and on.
And let’s remember, that’s just TWO of the ingredients. I mean, your standard skincare does NOT do all those things. This. Is. It.
I shouldn't have to go on anymore, because I know you get it by now, right? Right.
My clear skin has brought out the sassy side of me. Don’t get me wrong. I still get the occasional breakout, because who doesn’t? But I don’t fret over it. I just give my face a spritz with a toner, dab an oil on it, and go to sleep knowing it’s not going to get out of hand. And in fact, most of the time it will just vanish overnight.
Truth be told and sass aside, I suffered SO much for years. If I could reach even just some of you who are suffering from self-esteem-sabotaging skin and give you the confidence that these magic potions have given me, then another one of my clear-skin dreams will come true. .
From me to you: DO NOT give up on your skin or yourself. You CAN love everything about you. YOU ARE GORGEOUS. I mean, we all are. Sometimes we just need a little help realizing it.
Turn your skincare routine into your self-loving, sacred ritual. Breathe in all the goodness and wake up each day with confidence. You are so deserving.
