Why Chica Glow?
Hi! 👋This is Elise, cofounder of Chica Chocolate, and I want to share my story of creating Chica Glow. I started experiencing intense hormonal acne when I was 17. These pimples were so deep and irritated, that instead of disappearing with my period, they stayed put on my chin. After a year of staring at acne in despair, I began a routine of applying acids and peroxides to my skin nightly. These strong solutions did help, granting me a few days of clear skin every month. However, time with these chemicals exposed sensitive skin, and I eventually had to drop this routine due to severe redness and dryness. Stressed out and unable to stick to diet changes, I accepted that acne would always be present. My attitude changed when eating Chica showed that my difficult periods can be healed, and I began to think about how my hormonal acne may be alleviated by the same delicious remedy. Working with our consulting acupuncturist, Marco Lam, we found that Gardenia Fruit and Moutan Peony bark can be added to our original Chica formula to prevent hormonal acne (and help already present blemishes heal faster). Eating Chica Glow has gifted me clear skin every period, in addition to all the amazing relief I have always experience with Chica. I hope you love Chica Glow as much as I do!
