How They Practice Self-Love
I have dealt with acne for as long as I can remember, and as the years went by, it only got worse. As the only one in my social circles who faced frequent breakouts, I felt out of place. It took me a while to figure out that my acne was connected to my hormones and puberty. Of course, that came with years of trial and error, trying out treatments and prescriptions, and going to aestheticians and doctors. Once I figured out what worked for me, I felt like I had some sort of control over my acne and my health. Although I wished someone would have just sat me down and openly talked about what puberty entails for young women, I wanted to feel less alone in my journey. I wish it had been normalized. Blume and its founders, Taran and Bunny Ghatrora, set out to do exactly that.
After questioning why the world treats periods and women's health like taboo topics, the sisters created Blume to provide clean solutions for all things self-care. They wanted to create a space where people of all backgrounds felt seen and normal — especially when discussing things like acne, puberty, periods, and sex ed. The Ghatroras are on a mission to destigmatize women's health, encourage self-love while redefining self-care, and shift the narrative from perfect skin to healthy skin.
Growing up, I wish I'd had a brand like Blume to provide me with everything I need to get through the bells and whistles of all things puberty and beyond. Luckily, I spoke with Taran and Bunny Ghatrora to discuss it all. Even though I couldn't have this brand as a teen, I'm so glad that Blume is there for the rest of my life, as well as the younger generations.
