Moisture Bomb me, baby

Beauty

Have you read my post on Evening Primrose Oil and Hormonal Acne? No? Shame on you.

For those of you that have read it (thanks, babe), I have a somewhat exciting update. In just under two weeks of taking this supplement I have already seen drastic results. No new spots!! Now all I’m left with are those pesky red marks, one ugly scab and a few bits of horrible flaky, dry skin that make me look like I still have spots, BUT I DON’T! (#YEAAS!)

I will not be posting my before and after photos yet, I want to give it a little while – you never know, (I hope they don’t, but) they may come back.

I’m traveling up to Cheltenham tomorrow with a friend for another friend’s birthday celebrations and want a quick fix to get rid of these annoying marks and get my face ready for the many photos I can expect to be taken. I will be trying Garnier’s Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask for some much needed hydration. This is a risky move that could go very wrong as my skin has been known to break out after using face masks (but that’s usually when I use a cleansing and de-clogging kinda thang – so I hope this one will be okay!).

Make up has been removed, I have cleansed and toned my skin – now for the mask.

Yep, I look like Michael Myers. I’m going to have nightmares.

To be continued…


UPDATE 06/12/2016 – It went horribly wrong. WHY DID I DO A FACE MASK BEFORE A PARTY?! Currently at the end stages of nursing three HUGE cyst like spots around my lips.  Ba*#&rds! Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream has done what it says on the tin!

My Acne Skin Care Routine

Spots. Why do they feel the need to rock up on my face and live there for a few days, rent free. I did not invite them and I certainly didn’t tell them to come back soon when they last left.

Throughout puberty I was the girl that all the others hated – I developed and did my thang, all the while with a perfect complexion. Well, now the joke is on me because I am one of the many suffers of adult acne (WHYYYY?!). My Cheeks and chin has never been so sad.

I have spent many years trying to find the perfect combo to rid these demons from my face. From Sudocrem to prescription drugs to and home made concoctions, you can rest assured, I have tried the lot. I will admit, it may only be a few here and there, but they are angry and come back with a vengeance! I suffer from juicy cyst like spots around my chin (damn you, hormones!) so I feel like I’m constantly fighting a loosing battle, however, I do believe that I have found the perfect skin care routine for my face… and I wish to share my new found knowledge with you.

Origins – This is a lovely company use the power of plants to create high performance skincare. It’s 100% natural! As well as being a kick-ass product for spots, Origins launched Plant-A-Tree in partnership with American Forests’ Global ReLeaf –  They plant trees around the world to help keep our air and water clean and restore wildlife habitats Since its start, Origins has helped plant over 500,000 trees globally. Still reading? Well… These lovely people of Origins have created something called a Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Gel – and it does exactly what it says on the tin! Is that a spot I see coming on my chin? Nope, cause I just scared it off with the AMAZING Super Spot Remover Gel – Hazaaaaa!

So, what’s this perfect skin care routine that I was talking about? As soon as I have come home from a long day and I know I won’t be going out again, the make up comes off. I use a generic face wipe for sensitive skin (These are the only thing I don’t believe in spending a lot of money on. I will buy them from Superdrug, Boots, Tesco – where ever I am at the time of needing them. As long as they are for sensitive skin and are cheap; sold!), followed by a Micellar Cleansing Water (I like Garnier, Simple and Loreal Paris). I usually repeat this twice before going in with Origins Zero Oil Deep Pore Cleanser with Saw Palmetto & Mint. If needs be, I apply a small amount of Sudocrem (yes, you did read that right) to the spotty area and leave the rest of my face alone for the rest of the evening. Before going to bed, I use Micellar Cleansing Water again to wash off the Sudocrem and apply Simple’s Vital Vitamin Night Cream and a blob of Origin’s Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Gel. In the morning, I wash my face all over with Origins Zero Oil Deep Pore Cleanser and apply a good amount of Simple Oil Balancing Moisturiser to my face and neck before applying my makeup. Once a week I apply Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate after a charcoal face mask; this makes my skin look and feel ultra smooth!
