As a teen and up until about twenty four, I had good skin. Really good, clear, flawless skin. I started cleansing, toning and moisturising at an early age after being encouraged to do so by my stepmum (thanks Liz) and I'd like to think this is the reason my skin was so clear. When I did get a spot, it was usually only one and disappeared after a few days. I was never unfortunate enough to suffer from acne or the like. Needless to say, I was pretty smug when all my friends were walking around with a shit load of spots. I didn't even own a concealer.
So what happened?
I'll tell you what happened, the spot God decided that I'd gotten away with it for too long and now was my time to discover what teenage skin felt like. What an arsehole. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that my nights are often sleepless, my cup always contains caffeine and my belly is hardly ever full of anything other than crap. My excuse? My fifteen month old.
So I'm trying to drink more water and eat less crap, I have nothing to say about getting more sleep. It would appear it's completely out of my control (we are on tooth number 8 - 12 to go...). I'm also treating my skin better although any advice on a good cleanser and toner would be much appreciated. I'm currently using Kiehls Herbal Cucumber Alcohol Free Toner and I think it's pissing my skin off although I'm not sure why. Maybe because all I seem to pump my body with after 7pm is alcohol? Possibly another reason my skin is so shit at the moment.
So please, please, PLEASE... any advice is welcome. Tips? Products that are good for sensitive skin, cleansers, scrubs, masks etc. Don't be greedy, share them with me PLEASE? I'm desperate.
