So I was thinking last night, after putting on my green Mint Julep face mask and looking like an alien....
all my skin related misery over the last umpteen years has been down to P.acnes, a tiny bacteria that lurks beneath the skin surface (harmlessly for the lucky ones - good for you - excellent) but which causes despair and frustration for the rest of us.
I found a picture of it on the net...here it is:(I'm not sure whether these links will work or not, they don't in the preview)
doesn't look very impressive does it?
but P.acnes is STUBBORN and anyone who could invent a universal cure would become an overnight sensation, like Susan Boyle:
no pun intended with the surname there btw.
I've created a Reward poster to encourage skin scientists to ........TRY HARDER!!!!!!!!!
We've all been waiting long enough!
Back to reality and today's progress with my Queene Helene regime: skin looking ok, a few spots but no major breakouts but still a bit flaky. Not as dramatic as the results I got with Smooth & Clear (though as I said, this gave me perfect skin for about a week and then stopped working)
For now it's back to tonight's green mask application. It's alien time again!
