Hi my name is Kat.

I am 27 and honestly ,my skin has never been great but would have just said it was down to lazy skincare. But over the last 6 months my skin has gone from a few spots dotted around to clogged pores, blackheads and whiteheads mainly clustered around my lower jaw and dotted elsewhere. I
In the last few months I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries (pcos) and I'm guessing my acne has a lot to do with this.

I guess I am on here to find people like myself, product help and a good ol' natter really.

So hi and see you soon... I hope
