I have been battling pimples my entire adult life. But for the last 14 months I have been experiencing the worst acne of my life. This time there is something different, this acne is more persistent.
In my future blog posts you will read about my history with acne medications, birth control pills, treatments, ointments, the list goes on.
I was recently diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which I will elaborate on in another post.
But for my first entry, I thought I would discuss my current routine.
What I am taking: Diane 35 (or 'Estelle 35')
Today is Day 11. So far no improvements, but I am hopeful. Birth control has worked for me in the past (well, to some extent) so I am holding out hope that it will work again.
I wear makeup every day to work, and I use a variety of cleansers, depending on the condition of my skin that day. This evening I used Simple's Micellar Water to clear away makeup followed by the Neutrogena Pore Refining Daily Cleanser (this is comprised with AHAs and BHAs) with a spin brush and the Simple Rich Moisturiser.
Tomorrow morning I will simply use the Micellar Water to clear away dirt and oil from my pillow case and the QV daily moisturiser containing SPF 30.
I try to keep my products and steps minimalistic, as I try my best to avoid irritating my skin.
Feel free to leave comments/questions about any of the products.
