When I was younger, I had very acne prone skin. I can’t remember exactly when my skin finally cleared up, but I remember thinking it would never clear and how upset that made me feel. Thankfully, now all I ever get is the odd few spots if my skin isn’t feeling too good.
I hope in writing this, I can help anyone who is feeling like I did.
Firstly, seek medical help
I would say one of the biggest mistakes I made was not going to the doctor when my skin started to get bad, as I suffered for a long time before going and asking for help. The doctor prescribed antibiotics, which after a while really cleared up the spots.
However, be warned that it does bleach fabrics, so beware of wearing coloured tops and duvet covers! Still years later I still buy white duvet covers out of habit!
A good skincare routine
Once my spots stabilised, I found regularly exfoliating helped. I liked Clean & Clear because it doesn’t dry your skin, as dryness encourages the skin to produce more oil.
Don’t be afraid to use moisturiser
I find that regularly applying face powder during the day, personally for me, it prevents too much oil and therefore spots.
I hope this helps x
