The last time I done this I was having a moan about my skin. I had a lot of advice and obviously I couldn’t do all of it but I have tried to combine it to make my own little routine and attempt to make my skin better. I can’t say I’ve noticed much of a difference, I still get spots, they still leave marks, but I will persevere with it all anyway and maybe tweek what I’m doing a tad, more on the skin care side.
So this is currently what I’m doing:
I now drink plenty of water (the whole 8 glasses a day as recommended), although, to be fair, I’ve always drunk loads of water, so maybe this isn’t such a biggie, but still...
I use St Ives Blemish Fighting Facial Scrub every other day, which I think is helping with the marks on my skin, it’s certainly not doing any harm anyway.
Boots toner (their own one, the cheapy one) everyday after removing makeup to make sure my skin is nice and clean.
I’m still using the acne medication as prescribed from my doctor, it’s a roller ball thing which you apply to your face, I don’t think it’s working though so this may stop soon.
I have continued to take my new pill which is also used as an acne treatment.
And I have generally cut down on the sweets and chocolate (with a few small minor slip ups).
Surely by now my face should be gleaming with wonderfully bright clear skin? But alas no!
I did however have some very good advice that you should learn to accept your skin the way it is, and I have been trying to do, of course it’s quite hard when you are looking in the mirror staring at another spot but I’m getting there.
I think I do need a better daily facial cleanser/wash though, maybe something that helps remove dead skin cells or something with a bit of an exfoliator in? If you can let me know of some good ones it would be very much appreciated.
