Before & After…
When actress Keke Palmer candidly revealed her struggles with acne as a result of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), I couldn’t help but empathise. One of the joys of being a woman is the propensity for hormone-induced acne which can errupt at any age and quite often just when you thought those awkward years were well and truly behind you…well think again!
Last summer my skin began to misbehave after years of normalcy I began breaking out solely on the left side of my face thus resembling a walking, talking before and after frame. I’m still uncertain as to whether this was a blessing or a curse. It is fair to say that I have been quietly grateful for the mandatory wearing of face masks!
After grudging overhauling my diet, kissing goodbye to my beloved cheese (mostly) and adding copious supplements, tinctures and tonics my skin has at last begun to calm and even out. Here is a list of the transformative products which have finally begun to work for me.
Micro peeling Serum
Cerave Salicylic Acid Cleanser
Aloe Vera Gel
Vitamin C Serum
Celery Root Extract
Zinc Sulphate Spray
It is not lost on me that the above cocktail of lotions and potions could quite possibly cause a small explosion but collectively they have returned my fractious complexion to a near-normal state. I would advise caution and the obligatory test patch if you have sensitive skin. Acne can be crushing for one’s confidence but hopefully, there is a little something here which just might work for you. Bisous.
