Real women, real stories with Tara-Anne Johnson

We're sharing some of our favorite stories from real women and the amazing results they have experienced with goPure! Read on to find out about tips and tricks that will help you on your personal skin care journey and which products to use to get your best results.

Today's story comes from Tara-Anne Johnson, an online coach and founder of the “Operation Hot Mom” fitness & lifestyle movement. Here is what she shared about her skin care journey: 

Tell us a little bit about yourself

My name is Tara-Anne and I'm 47 years old, a chocoholic, Mom of 5 (plus 2 dogs), who went from legit broke, overweight, and unfulfilled to financially secure, in the best shape of my life, and married to my soulmate who happens to be my 2nd husband (sometimes we all need a do'over, right?!)

I am the Founder and CMC (Chief Moment Creator) of a movement I call #OperationHotMom. My mission is to help every single mom who crosses my path to find her fit & master her mind, so she can find & master her life.
I've had skin issues my whole life. When I was 12 years old I noticed the dark circles and puffiness around my eyes. Throughout my 20's and 30's my skin issues got worse; my facial skin was saggy from weight issues and I started getting more dark spots and sun spots (I loved tanning salons during the 90's; saying I overdid the UV light would be an understatement). Then came the fine lines and wrinkles in my 30's which culminates in a skin cancer diagnosis on my face at 41 years old. So in addition to all my other skin issues, I had to have face surgery which resulted in a scar that is a constant reminder of my bad habits in my younger years. 

Now 47, I got good at covering up my skin issues with make-up, but I got fed up with doing that. I was healthy on the inside, both physically & mentally, and I just kept thinking I want to feel sexy & confident on the outside too!

Once I discovered goPure I knew in my gut that this was going to be the solution I had been looking for my whole life!

What is your experience with skin care?

In my 20's and 30's I experimented with various skincare routines, but nothing ever seemed to be doing anything for my skin that I could see or feel. I didn't think we could really fight the signs of aging or undo damage we had done to our skin over the years, I thought we all had to accept our skin issues as a part of life. 

When did you start using goPure?

I’m about three months into my goPure routine and I couldn’t be happier. My dark circles and puffiness under my eyes have radically improved. I don’t look tired anymore. I feel like years have been taken off my face with a more even skin tone. My skin is softer, smoother, brighter. My skin cancer surgery scar is even fading. I use less make-up than ever. I even find myself confidently going out make-up free, which I never used to do!

What’s your favorite goPure product and why?

If I was forced to pick just one product and never use anything else… I would have to stick with goPure’s Actives Glyco-Peptide Anti Wrinkle Moisturizer. I call it my facelift in a jar! It’s absolutely one of the best-kept secrets in anti-aging because it provides elasticity, wrinkle reduction, deep hydration & smoother, younger looking skin.

When did you start seeing results/which product/what specific results?

I use the Complete 8 Product System with Actives Serums and the Actives Glyco-Peptide Anti Wrinkle Moisturizer.

The actives serums are my absolute favorite! I love that the Actives Serums are light in consistency and absorb quickly into the skin and I love sealing them in with the Glyco-Peptide Anti Wrinkle Moisturizer as part of my morning routine because I know that helps to get optimal results.

I immediately felt the difference in my skin in regards to softness. And after just a few days, I started seeing my skin lighten. It was maybe a week or so before all of my skin concerns started improving
– from my dark spots to my fine lines – even the firmness of my skin was noticeably improving in a matter of weeks.

Why do you prefer goPure over the other skin care brands you've used in the past?

goPure products are pure, natural & simple. Their products contain high quality, potent ingredients, and goPure is also super affordable!

How would you recommend goPure to your friends or other people?

As a health and lifestyle coach, I preach it’s what’s on the inside that counts - and it is. My “Operation Hot Mom” movement is about how being sexy is an inside job. But strong women are allowed to want to feel confident, beautiful, and worthy. We’re allowed to want more for ourselves. Because if we don’t feel our best – we can’t be our best for others. I will never stop sharing about this revolutionary skincare line with anyone who will listen! I am a goPure lifer!

Do you use the vitamin c as well as the glycol moisturizer together. Or one or the other. Right now I’m just using the vitamin c moisturizer

I am 72 years old and have been on estrogen inhibitors for about a year and a half for breast cancer. They are taking a severe toll on my skin. For the first time in my life I’m not looking young for my age, but older. If you can help with this problem, women everywhere taking estrogen inhibitors will be buying your products like hot cakes. Any suggestions?
