It's time to detox. For some reason in the last month or so I've suffered from huge breakouts of spots which are making me feel like an ugly teenager. Now I managed to get away with feeling like this when I actually WAS a teenager, so this is purely not acceptable skin! (To be honest I've whittled it down to a change in my pill so it's not even like I have any control over it, sadface.)
So, how do you deal with a breakout when you're over the age of 18? The first thing you don't do is go back to the products you used to use when it was fashionable to wear white slouchy socks over black tights. These are made specially for young skin which contains a lot of grease - you need extra powerful ingredients in your teenage years, but your delicate older skin just can't handle this anymore. All you'd get is dry, dull skin and probably smell of TCP.
You should also be using an oil-free moisturiser before you go to bed, and if you can the morning too. I've been using Biore Shine Control Moisturiser which comes in a cute pump-action pot. This is light enough not to clog up your pores, oil free so you won't look greasy, smells fab and can be worn under make-up easily. It's easy not to moisturise if you feel spotty, but you shouldn't be neglecting other areas of your face - you just have to be careful with the type of cream.
With these tips you should be back to your fresh-faced normality pronto!
