Day 55-I Had A Few Clear Skin Days! Woohoo



In the last week I had a few days with NO new spots! This is the first time this has happened since I was twelve! Sadly I got 3 yesterday because I used a different moisturiser and it broke me out. Just on a whim I tried a really rich one that I bought for my daughter's eczema and it made me greasy and spotty. I've gone back to my usual stuff now and they have calmed down already, phew!

My routine is:


wash with cetaphil gentle cleanser

moisturise with Naturally Thinking Simple moisturiser

use makeup (I've discovered that it really does stop me picking!)


Remove makeup with Clinique foaming cleanser

wash with cetaphil gentle cleanser

Dan's BP

moisturise with a few drops of jojoba oil followed by Naturally Thinking moisturiser.

For 'on the spot' treatment I'm using a blob of Oxy 10% BP, but only on the big ones.

I'd say my skin is looking normal now and with no flakes-at last!

Sorry I haven't written in a while, have had a whole load of crap happen last week. A pipe burst under the kitchen sink and flooded the house. All the carpets are ruined, skirting boards and walls. To top it all off we discovered what appears to be asbestos tiles underneath which have become warped and are coming up. No repairs can be done until they are all tested and removed. My hubby is having kittens as his dad died of asbestos induced cancer a couple of years ago. I'm worried too but he is really driving me mad with his stress.

On a plus point, I just had my 20 week scan and we decided to find out what we're having this time. It's a boy!
