My skin looks wrecked please help me to re find my 'glow'
After months of worry, sleeplessness a bad diet and now very recently bereaved my skin looks wrecked. I have large cystic acne along my jaw I look grey and pretty crap.
I don't normally eat much sugar and did have a fairly healthy diet but due to long hours sitting in hospital with mum and eating on the hop it's all taken it's toll. My eyes feel like sandpaper, my usual routine (think Caroline Hirons) is doing nothing.
I need a boost I don't want to go to my mums funeral looking like this.
Can anyone suggest anything that might help me? Thank you
Hello my love, so sorry for your loss the only advice I have for a quick result is to drink lots of water . I'm sorry it's not much, but didn't want to read and run. I would like the answer too, so hopefully someone will be along soon.
M&S stock (or you can order online and have delivered for free to your nearest store) the Pixi Glow. Also Superdrug Naturally Radiant Serum/Moisturiser is fab and cheap. Then MUI bronzer (very subtle pigment) can put a bit of glow back on your cheeks if applied with your fingers. If you need to and/or if you can, get a good colour/cut/blow-dry. It sounds so shallow but I've basically festered since my dnephew died. Getting my hair done mage me feel a bit more able to sort myself out in other ways. I'm so sorr for you too. Xx
I'm so sorry for your loss My sister swears by tcp antiseptic for spots. You just dab a bit on a cotton bud directly on it and it goes much quicker than usual apparently. Coconut oil before bed will help re-moisturise your skin (I use it every other night, I swear by it) and drink lots of water.
@orange I am so sorry for you too. I lost my grandad 6 months ago and my nan 2 weeks ago. I think doing things like getting your hair done or trying something new with your skincare routine is an excellent way of nourishing your soul and helping your mental health, especially after such awful losses. Hugs for all of you xxx
Sorry to hear your sad news . I always find La Roche Pose Effaclar Duo the best for getting rid of those awful jawline spots and I know a lot of others on here also recommend it. Loads of water as well - if you're not keen those fruit infuser bottles are great, you can get them in Primark or Wilco for under a fiver.
