5 Things That Make Acne Worse

Apr 29, 2024

Having acne can be such a whirlwind of emotions and information, and its hard to know if you are doing the right things to help yourself and your skin. 

I am an Acne Skin Specialist in the UK, and I have clients after clients who come in and tell me everything they are doing at home, and there is always a common theme, and so today I want you to look at this following list of five things, and start correcting these in your everyday life, so that you can be on your way to acne free clear healthy skin.

 

1)  Picking and Squeezing

When you are constantly touching your skin, the bacteria that will undoubtedly be on your hands, will go onto your face. Now, when we combine this with squeezing and picking your spots, this bacteria is more likely to get into your pores, causing more acne. When you squeeze and pick your skin you are increasing the chance to cause scarring and pigmentation on your skin too. Instead apply ice to the areas that are bothering you, and buy yourself...

My Acne Skin Story

Apr 22, 2024

This week I wanted to delve into my own skin story with acne, and how I became the Acne Specialist that I am today.

 

I have always been incredibly interested in skin, I use to watch my mam apply her Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, Toner and moisturiser every day when I was little and I was always fascinating with what she was doing.

When I became a teenager I really struggled with cystic acne, I felt like a monster to put it shortly, we tried so many different ways to help my skin but we didn’t even know where to start. I ended up after several different doctors prescriptions, being referred to the hospital to see a dermatologist who then put me on Roaccutane. If you don’t know about Roaccutane it’s a awful medication to be on, as the side effects are horrific.

All of that was a lot to go through as a young teen but after a year of being on the medication on an incredibly high dosage I was taken off it as my cystic acne had calmed down. It’s really been a...

My Acne Prone Skincare Routine

Apr 08, 2024

As an Acne Skin Specialist one of my top asked questions is always about skincare, and so today I am going to break down my skincare routine for you. 

But before we get started you need to know that copying this skincare routine most likely won't give you the best results, for optimal results you need to be prescribed a professional skincare routine from a Skin Specialist suited to your unique skin situation. (See end of post for details)

 

 The first thing you need to do before you do your skincare is wash your hands, obviously your hands carry bacteria, as we are constantly touching things, and therefore its unavoidable.

 

Surface Radiance Cleanser- Medik8

The cleanse I use every single day is the Surface Radiance Cleanser by Medik8. This is a gel to foam cleanser which means that it comes out of the bottle as a gel consistency, and then with water it turns to a foam. For a thorough cleanse having a foam cleanser can be extremely beneficial as it works deep...

How Superfoods Transform Your Skin!

Apr 01, 2024

It is so easy to get caught up in the online world with the next new big thing that everyone is trying. A few years ago Acai Smoothie Bowls were that big new thing, and slowly overtime the excitement for this tasty treat has died down. 

BUT did you know that Acai is actually a type of Superfood? Superfoods are literally super foods, and are the most nutritious natural foods around of us with a high content of vitamins and minerals there to help you, your body and your skin thrive.

Seems to good to be true... right? 

Nature is a clever clever thing, and superfoods are often brightly coloured, this is called a Phytochemical. Phytochemicals attract us not only with their beautiful bright colours, but with their delicious smells and tastes too. So way back when, when we weren't as fortunate and surrounded by nutritious food as we are nowadays, gatherers new to choose these foods over others because they were much more inviting.  

Now in the western world, its easy to...

5 Secrets To Glowing Skin

Mar 18, 2024

Beautiful glowing clear skin is unavoidable in 2024, with celebrities and influencers alike, posting constantly with filters and edited photos. But what if you actually wanted to work on improving your skin and could achieve that glowing glazed doughnut skin, that we all lust after?

As a Skin Specialist I am asked this daily, and so here is your five step programme to follow to get your skin glowing!

 

1. Hydration is key!

When your skin is hydrated it appears more plump, healthy and fresh. You can increase your hydration by consuming fruit and veg with a high water content such as cucumbers, or by using a high quality moisturiser or serum with Hyaluronic Acid or Glycerin in the ingredients.

2. Facial Massage!

Giving yourself a daily facial massage can increase circulation and improve blood flow. This creates a healthier glowing tone whilst also providing you with some much needed self care relaxation time too! There are plenty of easy to follow facial massage tutorials...

How To Get Rid Of Acne Fast

Mar 11, 2024

Having acne can make you feel miserable, more time than not. The way that you show up in your life becomes so different, and with the months that go by, you start to lose who you once were. 

Now, lets make this clear, there is no quick fix to acne, if there was, wouldn't everyone be jumping on the new trend? Isn't that what always happens. 

As soon as an influencer opens their mouth about the next best thing, whether its been regulated or clinically proven, it never matters to most, because the want, the need, to clear your acne, its worth trialling anything and everything isn't it? 

I use to be this way when I had acne. I literally took my mom as a teenager into Boots, Superdrug, even Tesco and Asda, in search of a miracle product to trial, desperate for my acne to be gone.

This is why so many cosmetic companies market their products towards acne because they know that we will try anything and everything, and will essentially throw our money their way in just one...

Is there a cure for acne?

Mar 02, 2024

Many of us who begin to have acne breakouts trial a lot of avenues before going to see a professional.

That’s exactly what I did as a young teenager trying to clear my own skin but not having a clue what the right things to do were.

It wasn’t until I became apart of the skin industry and as apart of my education discovered so much about acne that I never would have known, such as acne not being curable.

It made me feel reassured that I would be okay and that my journey with acne was valid. Sometimes having a label such as acne not being curable helps us to come to terms with things & realise that there is only so much within our control.

I had seen many different doctors and dermatologists as a teenager but none of them tried to discover the underlying issues to why the acne was occurring, and not one of them presented me with expectations.

 So hopefully I can be that for you if you’re currently suffering through a breakout, or if you’ve had acne...
