I’m ready for my Close-up #1
I’ve never had the best of skin, I always get breakouts of spots which are quite painful and tend to leave scars, so my skin, although not the worst you’ve ever seen, does have plenty of marks all over it from old spot scars. So before Christmas, after another breakout I decided to visit the doctor to see if there was anything they could do. I’ve been before about my spots and they gave me a solution to put on my face which in all fairness cleared it up nicely, however, this was several years ago, and I guess I just got lazy going to collect my prescription, but I stopped using it. I’m hoping that with persistence it will start working, but so far I’ve continued to get spots, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
If however my skin doesn’t get any better using this I’m gonna need to change it up and find something else to help.
So I’m asking, as a bit of a plea really, what do you use on your skin, and especially if you suffer with spots, what routine do you have. I’d really like to hear from you, so please let me know. You can email me if you have any advice that youu think might be a bit too much for a comment.
I’ve also decided to give up chocolate and sweets for a month!
As of the 1st of February I will not be eating these lovely tasting little treats until March. I have recently realised just how much chocolate I eat and it is quite frankly loads, I should actually be ginormous! I think this might very well not be helping my skin and so I’ve decided to have a one month break from it to see if I stop getting spots. However, I’m scared that if it works I may have to give up chocolate forever, it’s a hard decision, chow down on some lovely chocolate or have nice skin... but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
So all this has lead me to this post. Every now and again I’m going to do a portrait just to see how my skin is looking. However, it’s not just for that, it’s also handy to see what makeup works, how my hair is changing and I guess just generally me, all very deep.
