I firmly believe your skin is a great indicator of your current health and general well-being . I’ve made no secret of the fact I was feeling down as the first years anniversary of my mums death drew closer.
Which took me back to last year. About a month after we lost mum I had a horrendous breakout. Lots of lumpy, tender skin on my jawline accompanied by thousands of white heads. … and I mean thousands. I would get rid of them but they kept reappearing. The little blighters!
I’m not sure if it was coincidence but just like back then I broke out again. My mood and my skin felt sad. It was lack lustre, bumpy with angry spots brewing under its surface; you know I’ve looked better and at my age I was feeling very much “why me? I’m 47 and suffered all my life. Go bloody away” I came to the conclusion that my skin had gone into mourning and it needed some TLC …
As I often review Beauty products it’s not unusual for me to chop and swap my products around. I had not changed anything drastically so couldn’t even blame that
I decided the best thing to do was to pair my routine right back, look into supplements and go back to basics – drinking lots of water, good nights sleep etc.
My skin didn’t clear up over night. I had a few weeks of frustration as my skin seemingly got ALOT worse before it got better BUT I am happy to report that I am currently spot free. My skins looking ‘nice’ and while I’ll never be 100% happy I am pleased with my current routine.
I’ve decided to share the products I’ve been using starting with cleansers:
