Turning 15 is supposed to be an exciting time for any growing teenager, but Jed Bostock spent his birthday at home, away from everyone else.
He canceled the party the night before because his painful acne had gotten so bad that it affected his self-confidence.
“I was in my room and mom came in and asked me a few questions about the party. That’s when I felt overwhelmed with emotion and canceled,” Jed, now 17 and from Brisbane, told FEMAIL.
“Looking back, I should have trusted my friends because they wouldn’t have cared about my appearance – but it worried me at the time.”

After: “I’ve tried every type of cleanser you can think of, but nothing works. “It just made my skin angry and really red,” he said. He was able to transform his skin in two months thanks to a ‘miracle’ gut health kit
The red, blistered acne covered her cheeks, forehead, chin and neck and caused her to feel “itchy” and “irritated.”
On the morning of his birthday, Jed woke up “disappointed” that he had abandoned plans at the last minute.
“I would stay at home, watch TV and see no one… it was pretty boring,” he recalls.
At that point, it had been two years since his battle with acne began and made him self-conscious in social situations.
“I’ve tried every type of cleaner you can think of, but nothing works. It just made my skin angry and really red,” he said.
However, Jed was able to transform his skin in two months thanks to a ‘miracle’ gut health kit from PuraU Health.
Jed began using the brand’s 20-day Inside & Out program, which involved taking nine capsules a day to repair any gut issues (pictured).
The teen began using the brand’s 20-day Inside & Out program, which involved taking nine capsules a day to repair any intestinal issues.
“I noticed the redness on my face started to slowly disappear after two weeks – it was pretty amazing,” Jed said.
According to the PuraU website, the tablets contain Bacillus coagulans probiotics, prebiotics as well as soothing herbs and vitamins to help replenish and restore health from the inside out.
Jed repeated the treatment for two months until the acne completely disappeared and now takes one tablet a day.
“Now I can finally wake up, look in the mirror and not worry about seeing acne,” he said.
PuraU helps relieve indigestion, bloating, gas, promotes skin tone and supports the proper functioning of the immune system. In 2022, the brand received the global award for the most innovative solution for intestinal health.
Jed isn’t the only one who has benefited from using PuraU. More than 800 satisfied customers have left five-star reviews after using the products (after the image, right, before the image, left)
Following this impressive transformation, Jed’s mother Julie sent PuraU co-founders Acacia Clarke and Reever Botha a letter to share her story, which touched their hearts.
“Reever and I were touched by this letter and brought back too many bad memories from our own adolescence. We couldn’t let this happen again for Jed, so we offered him a full year of PuraU’s maintenance program,” Acacia said.
The co-founders know all too well how debilitating teenage acne can be, and Reever spent $10,000 on treatments before seeing a gut health specialist who changed her life forever.
“I know from my own experience with adult acne that the problem goes beyond cosmetics: It affects your mental health and your self-confidence,” Reever said.
“After spending thousands of dollars on treatments that barely worked, I took it upon myself to find a real solution and sought the advice of naturopaths and microbiologists who explained to me that the products I ‘I applied to my skin treated a symptom and not the cause: my gut health.’
PuraU has helped thousands of customers like Jed achieve healthy skin from the inside out and the brand has received over 800 five-star reviews.
