I want to write about what experts are calling, problem skin, which is now becoming a seriously adult problem. I thought I'd left spots behind me in my teenage years but seems like I was wrong. Weirdly, when I hit my mid-twenties, it was like a switch being flicked and spots just started appearing. My skin was rarely without blemish or spot and it wasn't just on my face: my back and chest were also affected. Strapless tops and low-backed dresses were a definite no-no. And I even considered the problem when it came to buying my wedding dress. Was it my diet? Was it my skincare regime? Or was it hormones, genetics, what? I tried thousands of lotions and potions, with varying success.
Now I'm in my thirties, I'm happy to say that the problem isn't as big. I still suffer from the odd outbreak, but then again who doesn't. In the main, it tends to be hormonal, usually on my T-Zone. Now, I was prepared to be brave and go bare-faced but my camera isn't good enough that you will be able to see what I'm talking about and in the interests of not scaring you, that's probably just as well.
However, in my own experience, a trip to the doctors, was the turning point. I waited years before going, and wish I'd gone sooner. I was prescribed antibiotics and skin cream. It took a while but my skin eventually went back to normal. I also changed my diet and started eating meat again. Whilst it may not work for everyone, I worked for me. But I also found a number of brilliant products which have helped beyond measure. I wanted to share these problem skin products with you, in case these help you like they've helped me: Read more about Problem Skin Products
