#3345975 Foundation Or/and Powder?

Posted by Lily87 on 05 May 2013 - 12:30 PM

Hey Aanabill, sorry I didn't get your message sooner.

Don't freak out- you'll be fine to go ahead and use your concealer on its own. As long as the colour match still looks ok with your skin tone, don't be afraid to go ahead and apply the concealer to problem areas. Just make sure you really blend the edges of the concealer around your blemishes so that there is a seamless blend between your skin and concealer. A bit of translucent powder all over would help to keep the concealer in place for longer, but you don't have to use powder.

Hope that helps!

And I've just seen your other post where you mentioned using q-tips. You can do that but products tend to stick to the q-tip and don't transfer onto the skin so easily. Personally I prefer to rub some concealer on to the back of my hand then apply with my finger from there, using my hand like a pallet. Whoever said don't apply straight to the skin from the concealer stick was right- as this does allow bacteria to harbour.


#3323866 Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

Posted by Lily87 on 02 February 2013 - 01:29 PM

I got tested a few years ago for vitamin d deficiency and sure enough i was severely low in it. I was put on three times the recommended daily dose for 3 months and within a few months my skin started clearing up. Stupidly, when it came to my acne, I didn't put two and two together and i stopped taking the supplements when my levels got re-tested and came out as normal. My skin stayed under control for about a year after but now it is flaring up again and starting to go completely downhill.

 

Since originally being prescribed it I have read a lot of information about vitamin D and now realise that it was probably one of the main reasons for my skin clearing up.....needless to say I am back on it, along with a change of diet....skin is already improving after just 4 weeks.

 

This might have been mentioned in other posts but it is recommended that you take cod liver oil supplements with the vitamin D supplements as it helps promote better absorption (my endocrinologist told me that when i was prescribed it).

 

I'll be posting more info about it on my blog:
