Skincare Update

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!

The Daily A-Z

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.

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.

Recently I have heard a lot of chatter as to the benefits of using Skinade – a dietary supplement which promises to transform your skin. It comes in the form of a liquid supplement come sachet which is added to water. Skinade claims to allow you to “drink your way to younger looking skin in just 30 days“! That’s quite a claim so I thought I had better see what all the fuss is about.
Unfortunately, I had not anticipated the somewhat excessive price tag of £99 for a 30 day supplement…but then I had an idea…

The manufactures of Skinade very kindly list the constituent active vitamins and minerals contained in the supplement so I thought why not buy the individual vitamins such as; Vitamin C, MSM (a type of organic sulphur which improves skin elasticity), Mangosteen, Vitamin B complex, Omegas 3 & 6, amino acid and L-lysine?

I have been using the below concoction of supplements for a month now and I have to say I have noticed some real changes. There is a very real radiance or sheen to the skin. My complexion appears less prone to monthly breakouts and dry patches. In total I spent a mere £35 on a selection of good quality vegan supplements. It definitely seems to make sense to give ones skin a helping hand. Bisous
