So this is a post that was requested (sorry it’s so late might I add) on my skin routine / regime. You might think ‘Huh, what’s that got to do with hair?’. Well good skin can accentuate the overall look can’t it ? Heehee. :wink:
To be fair I’ve never really had huge problems with acne etc. despite my bad eating habits, however, in secondary school I did have loads of pimples (sometimes looked like a rash) on my forehead. I hated this so much! I did obviously get the occasional spot and when they landed, boy were they large, and painful! I wanted my skin to be clear and to get rid of my pimples and I remember one day, a friend was advising us we shouldn’t wash our faces with soap. I was like ‘Huh?? So you want my face to be dirty? How’s that gonna solve the problem?!’. Then she explained; we shouldn’t wash our faces with soap but rather a face wash of some sort because they really clean the pores better etc. So that’s where it began. At the time I experimented with clearisil and all those products. Then I found dove face wash. This was AMAZING for my skin. It left my face feeling smooth and best thing of all pimple free (after a few weeks of using it). I was overjoyed! Of course I monitored this over a few months and noticed that my pimples were actually gone woohoo! After a while however, the prices started rising and the particular product I used was disappearing so it was obvious I needed to look for something else. Then I found Simple. I’ve been using the shower gel for a few years now but I also use St Ives Apricot Face Scrub. I was inspired to do this by one of my male colleagues at a place I used to work who had immaculate skin! I use the face scrub 4 times a week (as stipulated on the tube) and the simple wash the remaining 3 days of the week. I only use these once a day. It’s been working for me. Occasionally, of course, I still do get the troublesome spot ( they usually come when I need them to not be there ¬_¬ ) which I don’t think anyone can avoid to be honest but in general I’m satisfied with my skin at the moment and the products I’m using.
So that’s it, really basic but it works for me. If you’re looking for something, then maybe try one or both of these products and see how that goes.
Hope this helps!
