Find out exactly what is causing your acne and how to control it.
Acne, spots, blemishes, pimples, zits… Whichever way they come, they are never welcomed with open arms.
They are painful, not the most attractive and can really get us down. I know, I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt…(and annoyingly the t-shirt still fits). 30 years old and still getting teenage acne? Who can relate?
But hey, guess what? We are human! It happens… There are so many aspects of life that effect our skin and body and we shouldn’t beat ourselves up about it. In the world of perfectly filtered photos, it’s easy to believe that everyone in the world has amazing skin except for you. Trust me, being in the industry myself, it’s NOT TRUE.
Here are a few things that I promise will really help out.
Lifestyle plays a HUGE part on your skin. When I suffered from severe acne (hence my passion for this subject), I had a complete lifestyle change. I cut out sugar from my diet (don’t worry, you don’t have to go this extreme!) but my gosh did it make a difference. This is when I realised how much what you put in your body impacts your skin.

A good day and night skincare routine is key. This is going to make sure that you are balancing your skin well in the morning, and getting rid of all the impurities of the day at night. I speak more in detail about this in my Dealing with oily prone skin blog.
Don’t believe everything you see on Instagram. There are so many editing apps to eliminate imperfections on the skin and body, make your waist look smaller, your cheekbones higher, you can even completely change your background to a perfect sunset when its just a normal UK rainy day. It’s insane. At the same time, you need to work on the stresses that impact your life, and really make a change. Nothing really good in life comes easily.
