How would you rescue this complexion?

I'm 30 and it's awful.

I quit smoking and drinking in 2012, have never been a sun worshiper but's not great.

Then I haven't really taken care of it, quick wash with a flannel and soap is about it.

I was bought some moisturiser (Milliondollar something from the Lush shop) as a present a few months ago.

I've put it on every morning and night but it hasn't seemed to do much.

I'd lie to get rid of the visible/pores and blackheads.

Actually, I've just realised my face/smile seems to be pulling to one side?

Hmm it didn't use to do that.

Well done on giving up fags and booze! Spots look hormonal but a good gentle skincare routine would help. Stop using soap and water as anything foaming really strips the skin! Doesn't have to be expensive - get down to Superdrug and get the hot cloth cleanser, glycolic peel pads which will gently exfoliate/ resurface then a gentle day and night moisturiser. You can use a serum before moisturiser on an evening if you need an extra boost!

Superdrug brightening range that is.

YY to stop using soap and water. Also, it's a good time to start using a moisturiser with an SPF of 20+, and add a face mask into your weekly routine. Drinking more water is also really good for skin (I know this, but don't do it often enough!).
