Weekend Reads | Bump Bump Bump!

I get so many questions from you ladies about acne and as a fully fledged member of the acne club all of my recommendations are from personal experience. I’ve tried most things from Clean & Clear to facials and while some attempts have failed miserably some have worked like a charm. After experimenting I’ve learned what works for my skin and what doesn’t so here are what I’ve found to work for my acne and what hasn’t…

Thank God For Glycolic, Lactic & Salicylic

There’s skincare and then there’s skincare and by that I mean there’s the products that get the basic job of exfoliating, cleaning and moisturising done but then there’s the big guys glycolic, lactic and salicylic who blow the other skincare out of the water.

Product of the Month | Glytone KP Kit

Although this kit is designed to treat Keratosis Pilaris, it works on body acne too. I don’t have body acne myself but a lot of people love the Glytone KP Kit for pesky bacne.

Guaranteed Zit Zappers!

Whenever I get one of those humongous zits I pull out the big guns; SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense Serum* and the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion.

The Mixstress Workshop Charcoal & Manuka Honey Face Mask

When your skin’s congested and spotty make this simple face mask, a killer combo of Manuka honey, yoghurt and activated charcoal.

If You’re Prone to Acne Keep Away From This Oil!

The NUDE Replenishing Night Oil* broke my skin out in the worst way. Acne sufferers stay away!

I Bet You’re Using Something You’d Never Know Could Be Causing Your Acne..

Foaming face washes could be causing you to break out!

Product of the Month | Witch Blemish Gel

I’m not a believer in drug store products when it comes to treating acne but the Witch Blemish Gel* is an exception!
