so this is the 3rd day! I woke up and my spots seem a bit smaller but nothing magical! They are definately going down but without makeup are still very red... but the bumps are less bumpy! I have been using Acnecide just in the evenings before I go to bed but i think I might increase it to the mornings too. It is my sisters wedding on Sunday, I really hope it starts to clear up a bit.
I realised I havent told you my routine! So at the moment I am doing the following:
- washing face with just water
- wiping face with baby wipe which includes aloe vera
- using No7 essential moisuriser
- taking makeup off with Johnsons wipes for dry skin
- washing face with water and then patting dry
- Applying Acnecide
My skin is actually not really dry at all. I'm not sure when the dryness is meant to kick in but as it is not dry I am thinking of using Acnecide in the morning too, to hopefully speed the process along?
I have also changed my diet considerably. I have cut out all dairy and I am having smooties for breakfast (home made) which includes dark berries which I heard is good for the skin and also spinach. For snacks I have pumpkin seeds and plain high in fibre cereal cakes. I am also drinking organic green tea with aloe vera.
Does anyone know what else I can eat to help?
I'm also taking multi vitamins and vitamin C with zinc.
