I used to use Liz Earle too until I went to a new facialist and she explained that bumps and congestion on my skin were because it was actually too harsh for my skin and causing me problems. I never thought with all the natural ingredients it could be too harsh but it is apparently to do with the aromatherpy type oils used.
I moved to origins and my skin has never looked better. I would really recommend going for a consultation and free facial. If you buy online you always get freebies.
Oh and I also tried La Roche Possay Effacular and it dried my skin so badly, I would not recommend unless it was for very oily skin.
I suffered with acne and I guess I always will but I keep it under control with antibiotic cream from my GP. I use a combination cream now, I thinkkk its the benzoyl cream combined with another cream...I can't remember now buttt it works like miracle!
My skin has completely cleared while using it, I used it every evening until I saw a difference. I still put it on in the evening but sometimes leave it a few days, as my skin is quite clear now.
I think it depends though, as what works for one person might not necessarily work for you but your GP will be able to recommend whats best. I think if its really bothering you and want immediate results then definitely go to your dr!
You need something glycolic based to get rid of all the dead skin cells so that your skin doesn't get congested. I swear by the MD Formulations cleanser. It has an exfoliating effect so you won't need to use a scrubby type exfoliant. I use the normal one but there is one for sensitive skin too, which would probably be better for you.
I use Philosophy MicroDelivery Wash in the shower (it's very gentle and has a salt scrub but not gritty) Just finishinf off a 1 litre bottle that has lasted me over a year (possible 18 months but I don't use every day)
They do a two-stage mask that you rub over the skin (smells like oranges) then apply a Vit C solution for 2-3 minutes. They react and go foamy. I'm using this on my teen DS, he;s a typical lazy 13 yo and his skin is suffering. When I catch him, I'll arm wrestle him into a pore blast.
Hi looking for a bit of skin advice I'm 32 and had acne prone / combination skin in my fresher younger days :-) I had a baby 4 months ago and my skin has went wild , it seems so congested and I can constantly get junk out of my pores but super sensitive at the same time , when I try to use my usual pore sorting products my skin feels like its irritated. I used to use my clarisonic and elemis tri enzyme wash but my skin ends up red raw and spotty if I try it now.
