As you guys may have noticed, I spend a lot of my time talking at y’all about my thoughts on beauty and skincare. But today I thought I’d turn the tables and open up something of a dialogue to get everyone chatting about whichever beauty topics matter most to them.
To start it off – you didn’t really think I was going to stop talking altogether did ya?! – I wanted to speak to you guys about my biggest skincare concern: blemishes. As you may have noticed, I spend a rather large amount of my time and money trying and testing all of the latest, claim-to-be-the-greatest acne products out there in the hopes that I can clear up my blemish-prone skin once and for all (see above…!). Now my skin is by no means horrendous and I know that there are a lot of people out there who struggle with worse conditions than mine, but the whole situation really does bring me down a lot of the time.
I feel like I’ve tried everything – in addition to all of the acne products in the world, I’ve tried double cleansing twice a day, single cleansing twice a day, drinking copious amounts of water, eating fresh fruit and veg, taking vitamins, I’ve even given up Diet Coke, which was my favourite thing ever until very recently. In other words, I’m a bit frustrated because the blemishes just seem to keep on comin’ through. The bastards. And sadly we’re talking the painful, long-lasting, under-the-skin type blemishes that don’t seem to ever die.
So I thought the time had come to open up the floor to you guys and see whether you have any tips, tricks or ideas which might help? And in the meantime, I also wanted to give you the chance to share any of your skincare or beauty woes – whatever they may be – by commenting below. Then, if you have any advice to offer anyone else, feel free to share. Sharing’s caring after all! And go…
