Entries in this blog


Okay, So in my other blogs i've been talking about how much my skin has improved - well, i've recently gone back to square one and i've been back to the GP who's put me back on Tetracyclide. I've been back on it for about a month now and my acne seems to be getting worse, I've ditched the make up & clense every morning and every night, as well as this i've altered my diet so i'm eating alot more healthier. I was just writing to see if anyone had any other tips on how to get rid of them? I'd be really thankful!

Thankyou you beauties!

Here we are again Acne bloggers, this time I thought i'd write about how I apply my makeup to cover any blemishes yet without smothering my face in a cake-like fashion.

Important... I have a really small amount of acne at the moment, so its pretty easy to just apply one layer and get an even coverage, but this piece of advice is from when my skin was very bad.

I used to use a face scrub beforehand, Organic ones are usually the best! (See my product recommendation blog entry for some other good products), and after I applied a small amount of moisturizer to my cheeks and chin and made sure that it was all rubbed in.

Now it's time for the makeup itself - I use a very light helping of an organic concealer on just the problematic areas - but don't rub it in! Just let it sit on top of the area - I then put on, using a makeup sponge, Miss Sporty's So Matte Perfect stay - It's full of minerals and Vitamin E so it's perfect for using on blemish-prone skin - If you go over the concealer with this then it blends it all in together whilst also keeping your acne hidden.

During the summer I don't wear a powder on top of this because I find it clumps and dry's around the spots and makes your skin look a thousand times worse than it actually is underneath, But in the winter I use a Bare Minerals powder just to finish it off. To take off the make-up try and buy some facial wipes that don't use harsh chemicals! And remember to cleanse the skin afterwards with a face scrub!

I may have written this into my blog - but I don't believe anyone who suffers from Acne needs makeup, infact nobody needs make-up, it's just something to make us feel that tiny bit better.

Stay beautiful readers & I hope this helped. wavey.gif

I haven't posted on here since my first story, so I decided I'd post to help out you all. I've tried lots and lots of products both for blackheads and acne.

The first one i'd recommend is the Garnier pure active Exfo-Brusher wash, the added brush on it it brilliant and your fac feels squeaky clean and free of oils afterwards. I, however, wouldn't reccomend it to get rid of quite severe acne - light to medium acne and this will do the trick to calm it down but severe acne it just burns and makes your face itch.

The second product I used was Garnier Pure Anti-blackhead deep pore wash - Works a treat! Used it for 2 weeks and it cleared up the blackheads on my nose a treat! If you have oily and prone to inperfections then i'd definatly reccomend this product.

The third one - The one's i'm currently using are Protect exfoliating wipes, Skin System's Young skin wipes and Sudocrem, I wipe my face in the morning with the Exfoliating wipes, then of a night to remove makeup I use the Young skin ones and just before bed I apply Sudocrem - But JUST to the affected areas, This routine has worked wonders on my skin which used to be an acne minefeld (as you can tell by my previous blog)

I'll attach pictures so that you can look out for these products smile.png Thankyou for reading guys & dolls! Goodluck on your skin journeys!


So, here I am - 4 Years since I got my first ever spot and writing a blog to help all other teen-acne-sufferers.

I had completely flawless skin until I was 12, it started off just the odd spot here and there and ended in a full on mask of spots mellow.png

I was in Senior school at the time and other girls my age had flawless skin and would complain when they had one tiny little pimple - I used to wish I was them, I wouldn't once complain if I had just one spot...

My skin got to the point where I would get up in the morning, look in the mirror and refuse to go out. Sometimes I took time out of school because I couldn't cover my face in enough make-up to look like the other girls. I knew that smothering my face in makeup wasn't good for my skin, but when your young all you want to do is pretend that they arent there. People would walk up to me in the hallways and ask me if I had some kind of skin disease or if there was something wrong with me.

At this point I had tried everything - Acne treatments from the chemists to face scrubs.

When I hit 15, I had had enough, I finally dragged myself to the doctors to see if they had any ideas on how I could clear it up. She prescribed me a tablet called Tetracyle which I have currently been taking for a year - It has helped so much, Don't get me wrong I have the odd spot here and there but nothing major like I used to. I also use Sudocrem on just the problem areas and wash my face with a face scrub every morning.

It's taken me 5 long years to get my skin back on track, and by following a healthy diet and using healthy natural facial scrubs i'm hoping I won't fall back to how I was smile.pngblogentry-181726-0-39427400-1345240700_t
