Stress is a funny and dare I say, a decidedly vexatious thing. There you are spinning all manner of plates et all and there we have the stress hormone cortisol – not so discreetly wreaking a biblical pimple-laden wasteland upon your face!
A problematic complexion is frequently difficult to treat especially when said problems appear for no discernable reason. It is difficult to know just what to do for the best, alors, I have decided to do nothing. That is to say, I am resisting the urge to reach for all manner of ointments, specialists cleansers and exfoliators in favour of a minimal approach. Clearly, I was not listening to my body and it has therefore taken a more visual approach shall we say to get my attention. Well, attention is truly got!
Quite by chance, the other day whilst searching for Panda videos conducting online research, I happened upon a video of the incandescent beauty and holistic beauty enthusiast Mandy Madden. Madden possesses the type of other-worldly complexion most of us mere mortals can but dream of. Madden allows a peek into her skincare routine and her must-have beauty treatments and devices. Quite frankly, such is Ms Madden’s complexion that had she championed daubing one’s face with two-week-old bird droppings I would have given it serious consideration!
One of Madden’s go-to gadgets is a high-frequency beauty device. Reasonably priced and very simple to use, high-frequency beauty has made the successful transition from the salon to the home. I suspect that I may be the advertising man’s dream as no sooner had I watched a demo video, I had purchased a Project E Beauty’s High-Frequency device.
According to Project E Beauty, high-frequency beauty can, “aid with blood circulation, collagen and cell production to improve and reduce age spots, wrinkles, sagging skin, and acne”.
I’ve been using the device for a week or so and I must say, there is something supremely satisfying in zapping one’s zits and sending them on their sebaceous way. There is a definite reduction in pimple size and I have not had the dubious pleasure of welcoming any new eruptions to the party. It’s far too early to attribute any positive results to the device but I will continue with the treatment and report back. Watch this space… Biso
