The 28-year-old former bachelor has revealed that she has suffered from the condition since the age of 11.

Cat added that she recently started seeing a naturopath and going to a cosmetic clinic once a week, and said it all helped.

“Unfortunately it has now spread to my back and chest which is very frustrating. I struggle daily with what to wear to hide it and I am extremely embarrassed about it, ”she continued.

Sharing a series of close-up photos of her skin, she added, “I actually can’t believe I’m sharing these photos, but I hope it helps someone with the same issues!”

Cat said that while she was “trying to kiss him … it’s not easy,” and she recently found out that she has gluten, dairy, onion and egg intolerances, all of which have exacerbated his skin problems.

“I cut them all for six weeks and see what happens. I will continue to take my herbs, my weekly facials and have also added weekly infrared saunas to my routine, ”she wrote.

After talking about her skin issues, Cat said she had “received loads of DMs” from followers who were experiencing similar issues.

“My trip for the skin was honestly F ** KED!  I will not lie!  I have been battling cystic acne since I was 11 and have taken Roaccutane twice.  I quit the pill a year ago and had a lot of problems in 2021

Cat also said she does not recommend Roaccutane and added that while this is a “quick fix” it “does not solve the real problem”.

She said she experienced side effects such as “depression, severe anxiety, bloody nose, dry eyes and skin tenderness” during popular acne treatment.

“Obviously everyone’s experiences are different and I’m not a doctor. Roaccutane fixed my skin, but it messed up a whole bunch of other things in my body and eventually it came back, ”she explained.

Cat said she wished she had waited so long for her skin problems to be sorted out and wished she had gotten over it sooner.

“I would have liked to try to find the cause at the age of 19 instead of doing that!” I am now 28 years old and it is still here !! The only benefit obviously was that my skin got better and I didn’t have to wash my hair so much because it didn’t get oily lol, ”she wrote.

She concluded by sharing a photo of the products that had been proven to work for her in the hopes that it would help someone else.
