Long time lurker but this is my first post.
As my username suggests, I'm shattered. 3 kids, youngest the amazing feed all night, no need to sleep 9 month old baby. I have an interview next week to return to work and feel very short of confidence. In short I look dreadful.
I'm deathly pale with dark dark circles under my eyes. My combination skin has broken out badly, especially
around my chin. My weight has stalled so still don't fit my pre-pregnancy clothes. My hair is badly in need of a cut/colour.
Where should I start? Haircut is booked for later this week. I've ordered a dermaflannel but what cleanser/moisturiser?
I've read about CC creams - are there any that won't break me out further? I'm using an Estée Lauder double wear light foundation at the moment but maybe it's a bit heavy for summer? I don't have a lot of money to throw at myself, maybe £50 in total on creams/potions.
All advice/recommendations gratefully received!
I haven't even thought what I'll wear to the interview yet but need to sort neck up first!!wink

Have you got any sudocreme, you could put that on your chin at night to try and dry out your breakout. Also don't go too mad with the dermaflannel, if I use it too much I actually get more spotty. I just use it with water and then any old moisturiser I happen to have.

Thanks NotEnough. I'll search out the sudocreme - I'm sure I have some from a bounty pack somewhere! Point taken about flannel - gently does it.
