And who are you, Miss Author Lady?
My name is Tracy McCullough – I’m 26 and I’m from the West Coast of Canada. I live with my two little dogs and my almost-husband Luke in a tiny little house – I like outdoor festivals, painting, self development, nature, ‘n’ stuff like that. I like geeking out on the internet too though, so I guess you could call me a nerdy hippy. Click here to read my life story, and click here to learn even more about my personal life.
What’s yer’ deal with acne?
Well, after spending pretty much my whole life with mild/moderate acne (and hating every minute of it, mind you), I came down with severe acne quite suddenly when I was 23. Wow, how I wished for my mild acne back!
Having severe acne was just teeeerrible. Worst time of my entire life. I couldn’t believe that it was really happening to ME! (Me! Of all people!). People who have never had acne don’t quite understand how painful this condition is – both physically and emotionally. But mostly emotionally! Holy man! It was like my heart was getting run over by a bulldozer every time I looked in the mirror. I have never felt so desperate.
This is what my skin looked like:
The good news is that I found a safe, permanent, and positively life changing way of getting rid of it and keeping it away. Nowadays my skin loots totally rad, and I feel great too.
Here is what my skin looks like now:
I wanted to share these methods with others so that they could save themselves from the deep despair that I had felt. I wanted people to know that there was others solutions aside from scary drugs like Accutane. Plus, it’s fun to write and get out of my feelings about life and acne while connecting with others on their journeys to clear skin and happiness.
And, hey – starting this blog was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love The Love Vitamin with all of my heart because I get absolutely giddy when I receive messages from people telling me that I’ve helped them clear their skin or see big improvements.
I just wanted to say thank you! you helped me a lot, to believe in myself and that I could cure my acne holistically. I now have a clear face and I am no longer down because of my skin problems. I have given up birth control pills 3 weeks ago and that worries me a bit, that my acne could come back, but I follow all your 7 steps (I began little by little,but I made it ) and feel amazing inside & out. I just wish there were more people like you out there, to guide people in need. Again, thank you & I wish you a very happy life!”

Your website has been one of the hugest blessings in my life. My acne was a difficult and obvious issue but without it I wouldn’t have been pushed to become a healthier individual and I’ve cured myself of depression after I found out I was allergic to gluten and dairy…….all thanks to your lovely site and hard-work! Thank you so much! You’ll never know how grateful I am but you’re doing such a phenomenal job and you’re inspiring and beautiful and I could write a run-on sentence about you (I think I just did!).

How You Can Get Rid of Your Acne Like I Did:
Did you know that you can get rid of acne by improving your lifestyle? In other words, eating healthier things, exercising more, reducing your stress, and the like?
This is how I healed my skin (and pretty quick too… within a couple months). I didn’t use Accutane. I didn’t use antibiotics. I didn’t even use a single acne cream or wash or fancy product. I never considered these things to be safe or helpful to be putting on or in my body.
Your body can heal itself. It does all the time from things like cuts or a cold. And if you treat it well, it will heal your acne problem – no matter how severe it is, or how long you’ve had it.
The fact is, this is the only true way to get rid of your acne for good. Improving your lifestyle actually addresses the root causes and imbalances that are causing you to get acne in the first place. Using acne creams and treatments only covers up the problem, and the acne always seems to come back. This is why we’ve all spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on the next quick fix… chasing that imaginary pot of gold under the rainbow!
The articles and videos on my blog cover:
- Acne and what’s up with it
- Natural nutrition (for those of you wondering, I don’t follow a specific dietary approach, and am more into encouraging people to find out which foods work best with their bodies! Everyone is different and I don’t believe in diet dogma!)
- Facing painful emotions
- General advice on life and happiness
- Reviews and recommendations
- Anything to do with holistic and alternative health, as any step toward health is a step against acne. It all works together!
I have a passion for health, but also self development. Getting rid of acne this way is a journey, and it’s not all about acne itself. It’s also our happiness, how we respond to it and the world, and how we can use our devastating experiences with acne to gain opportunities, change our lives, grow our self esteem, and become the people we always wanted to be.
I particularly enjoy blogging about this less-talked-about side of have acne, as I’m always trying to find my true passions and enjoy life to the fullest, yet I am a human and that comes with many trials that I need to work my way through. I’m lazy, I procrastinate, I get anxious, I cry, and yeah… sometimes… I even get a few pimples still – which upsets me.
That is life – let’s get through it together and make the most of it!
