I had acne for years -most products out there are too hash. Scrubbing your skin will make it red and raw. It will also make your skin produce MORE oil, which means more blocked pores and more spots…
If you want to have spotless skin, you need to be GENTLE with it. Anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and replace the moisture and nutrients to the skin that are missing so that it can rejuvenate itself with minimum scarring.
SIMPLE have just started making a really good face that claims to improve skin in just one day, “Simple Spotless Skin- Triple Action Face Wash with zinc & chamomile goodness for visibly clearer skin”. I’ve used it for the past week with great results.
“Clean and Clear Advantage 4hr spot Treatment” works well for me when i need it.
HONEY IS AMAZING. It has transformed my skin. Reduces and fades scars, acts as a cleanser and is both an antibacterial & anti-inflammatory. Use a CLEAR ORGANIC one and leave on your skin for about 15mins. When my skin was very bad i used it morning and evening. My skin cleared dramatically after a week. Now, i only need to use it around my time of the month.
Make sure you use a light moisturizer. If you skip this step you skin will produce more oil to compensate. ALOE VERA based ones are good as they nourish and encourage healing too. I use a certified 95% standardized one as it has the best benefits, (£7 for 200ml shops own brand). I then follow with Dr Organic Aloe Vera Cream and use my blemish gel as necessary.
Alternatively, Simple also make a blemish face cream in the same spotless skin range- maybe try that?
DR MURAD products very effective (buy online). The blemish gel cleared my spots overnight. They are expensive though, but i did see visible results in about a week. However, find that my current skin routine just as effective for a fraction of the cost.
I know it is hard, but also try not to squeeze. If you must, wash your face and use the honey mask immediately after to prevent the spread.
TIP: Take a photo before and after and try a treatment for about 4-6weeks. Take another photo and compare. High sugar diets have also been linked to more severe acne, so it might help to cut down on that but the effect is not as great as proper skincare. Try this- it worked for me. I hope this helps you too.
Good Luck 🙂
