Skin Analysis & Drugstore Skincare – Advertorial

Sunday, 17 April 2016

Over the past couple of years my knowledge of beauty and skincare has expanded further than I ever thought it would. My skin was relatively clear as a teenager, and as such I didn't pay too much attention to skincare. I used an eclectic combination of whichever basic drugstore skincare was currently on offer and went on my life. Sure I had the occasional break out here and there, but it was never anything serious - never anything that didn't pass in a few days. My elder brother on the other hand, did have acne as a teenager, and low and behold the genes finally caught up with me in my twenties.

It wasn't until I developed adult acne, did I learn to appreciate good skincare. I'd always had relatively good skin, even throughout my teens and seemed to avoid that 'life ending' puberty led onslaught of acne. Of course I had the odd blemish here and there, but never anything too extreme.

Growing up with a single mother who didn't care much for makeup, skincare or beauty products, I learnt through trial and error, and women's magazines which skincare products to use. Needless to say, I picked up a few terrible beauty care tips... (Does anyone else shudder with horror at the thought of putting toothpaste on  breakouts and baby powder in their hair now?)

Hello... It's me.

I was wondering if after all this time - you'd like to read...

So here we are, It's March 2016 and I'm not even going to pretend that sitting in front of a blank page and trying to find the right words to type is easy, because I'm so out of touch it's certainly far from it.

I never intended for this blog to become a long lost beauty graveyard, but over the past year, somehow that's the way it seems to have turned out.

Over the past few months, I've received thousands of messages from people all over the world who suffer or have suffered from acne, an insecurity or self confidence issues.
