Need some emergency action here

Im in the middle of Uni finals at mo so apart from being stressed to the gills there's also been an uptake in my coffee drinking. I kicked the coffee habit before because my skin doesnt like it but study needs come first at mo

So Im breaking out and I want some strong method of attack on it. Please dont say kick the coffee I will in two weeks when these are over but for now...please someon suggest something so I dont take to scrubbing my face raw in desperation!!

Start doing aspirin masks, these always helped me the most. Get some uncoated aspirin, dissolve it into a paste, apply it to clean skin, you can even lightly scrub at the skin with it (I did) leave it on until it dries, then rinse off.

green tea seems to calm me down (not in the fatigue sort of way) and help me focus better as opposed to coffee

Applying ice to your skin twice a day can help reduce inflamation and redness. Put the ice in a baggie if you don't want to apply it directly to your skin. If you hold the ice over any active spots for 2-3 min, it can really help shrink the spot a lot.

yep, aspirin definately! Also honey - so off to the kitchen press myself now!

I'm studying at the moment too but am loving the opportunity to lock myself in a room and cover my face in all sorts of magical ingredients for hours at a time. Is also easier to keep taking supplements and acv shots so think my skin might actually benefit from these exams for once!

Good luck in your exams anyway!
