Acne Update!

  
I feel that I’ve started to notice an improvement in my skin over the last month especially! 

The things that I have changed the most are:

  1. Doing Veganuary – I gave up meat and all dairy for January and I’ve still not gone back to milk. No more lattes for me. I really feel that this is the major one. Can’t recommend it highly enough. See my previous post – Milk – acne friend or foe? And this post from a model recommends Milk and spots update
  2. Acid toning – I got the Pixi glow tonic for Christmas and I love it! It really does make me glow and it gets rid of all the dead skin cells that can clog pores. 
  3. Taking a fish oil supplement – not vegan but really helps! I’ve been using the Holland and Barrett Omega 3 Fish Oil 1500mg.
  4. Stopping stripping my skin by using harsh cleansers and things for ‘acne prone’ skin. It’s taken me a long time to realise that the softly softly approach is perhaps best. An angry spot is a big red spot! Treat them calmly and they chill out a bit!

Has anyone got any other tips? 

Happy spot taming

    Hey, have you tried salicylic acid? I find it a really valuable second string to my acne zapping bow! I use clinique mild clarifying lotion (the cloudy one without a number), alternating with glow tonic. And at night I sometimes use nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme (so not extreme) which are on offer for an amazing £7.50 at Boots online only at the mo (I had to check for a blog post, am not a Boots rep!). They contain salicylic and glycolic acids and are great in the evening.

    Hope this helps.
