your skin looks amaaaaaaazing! what do you mean by your chest/back/shoulder acne being due to the antibiotics? do you mean because you stopped taking them? are you using the duac there? also do you have a link to where you get the peppermint soap from? does it remove makeup or do you use something else (when you used to use it might i add, you so dont need it anymore )
First of all, thankyou!
I had chest and back acne before taking the antibiotics but it was mostly a random white head here and there. Since taking the antibiotics I've noticed an increase in body acne and severity, although my chest is currently clear. I'm still taking the antibiotics - about half way through my first box now - and I don't use the Duac on my body because I worry that it'll spread everywhere over night.
This is where I get my soap from: http://stores.ebay.c...awnhandmadesoap . I bought an eco loaf and I've only just had to cut off my second bar from it. It smells lovely and it's nice and gentle on the skin without feeling like it doesn't do anything.
I use coconut oil as an eyemakeup remover on the basis that oil disolves oil but I don't like to use it on the rest of my face as it clogs my pores. Instead I tend to use facial cleansing wipes to remove the makeup. I thought they were breaking me out at one point, but actually they only did that because I was scrubbing away at my face with them. Now I use only a very gentle touch with them, like I'm touching the face of somebody I love or something, and make sure to wash my face straight afterwards so no residue remains on my face.
Thankyou very much for the kind words I do still have some left over marks so I tend to put mineral makeup over them for Uni, but I don't feel like I need layers of thick foundation anymore.
Before treatment and currently:
