Mbong Amata Shares Her Acne Story - How She Battled Depression, Spent Thousands of Dollars

Posted in: , , ,

It started with a work out selfie, above, shared by Nollywood actress Mbong Amata on her Instagram, followed by compliments. With requests for her secret to a smooth flawless skin also coming in, the young mother of one decided to share the story behind how she beat acne. She had captioned the picture;

Post workout selfie. Feeling great!!! #Intense #fitness #abs #AllSeasonFitness #lifestyle #MoreAbsNeeded #muscleMilkIn #instamood #happy #justbecause...

I remember watching Forgetting June which had featured Mbong Amata on IrokoTV and how some of the reviews on the site ignored the movie and focused on her terrible acne at the time. It's humble of her to open up on what must have really been a difficult time for her. Hopefully, others will benefit too.

Enjoy her story below...

The road to success, they say it's a slow and painful one and I am a living testimony to that saying... I wake up everyday feeling inspired by life itself before anything else. So I decided to share a never before seen or heard story of my life via pictures hoping to inspire one person at the very least. The photo you see is me almost 2years ago and people who REALLY know me will understand my struggle with acne for the most part of my adult life. At this point, I was in a very dark place. Depression kicked. Everything that seemed bad was happening to me all at the same time. I felt I was cursed! I spent thousands of dollars trying to clear my skin. Yep! U heard right. infact there was nothing I didn't try out.. Darlings, my story is different today because God rewrote the story of life not just my skin. Lol! I found the joy and benefits of workout and clean eats! My previous post reminded that I really didn't wake up like that! #Lol. A few more uploads before I sign out. #staytuned

Pt 2: #Lol! I made sure I kept a photo diary of my daily struggle so one day when I feel comfortable enough to talk about it, I would have photographic evidence to at least share with you my friends. Believe me when I tell you that it was bad. These babies looked very juicy and well fed! Lol! The more I tried the more I was attacked. Sometimes, we really have to let go and Let God. Just do your part and let him zoom in on you.emoji Today,When I get compliments like" oh wow! You've got great skin" I simply laugh, say thanks and then say a bigger THANKYOU to God! Now I can conveniently and comfortably go about my dailies without makeup.. Cos I mean I think I've earned the right to say I make makeup look good and not the other way around.emoji Morale of the story: Trust God first, put in some effort and watch your struggles roll over. It doesn't come easy but it surely does come around. #staytunedemoji cos I'm going to share my biggest secret ever to achieving great skin... Hint* it's something we all know but sometimes get too lazy to do. Hehe! I'm guilty too!

#WaitForIt!!! #Taaadaah!!! There! You have it!! Recommended daily. #beets #grapes #carrot #aloevera #banana #apples emojiemojiemoji And the easy part!... #workout.

Free #Ad for #nutribullet Honestly guys I don't know what my life would be without my nutribullet #google and see for yourselves. Oooook...
