So everyone struggles with their skin at some point, and I was one of them. I have really sensitive skin, which flareed up and will then go really (REALLY) dry. I used to break out in random places then get massive scabs, which ended up scarring. I’ll insert a photo below.
I know this isn’t the best photo, but you can see some left over scarring. My skin used to make me so uncomfortable, and I would hide it with tones of make up until i discovered a few different products and techniques which i will discuss with you!
- WASH IT RIGHT. So i started by making sure that i washed my face correctly in the morning, it makes such a difference (especially when your skin is oily) to clean sensitive skin with a gentle wash such as Simple clear skin balancing exfoliating wash, i use this every morning and sometimes at night, if I’m wearing any make-up.

2. HAVE MAKE UP FREE DAYS. If you have nothing planned for the day, spend the day looking after your skin. Start by apply a deep pore mask, to clear out any dirt or grease that could cause inflammation. Then I would normally apply a moisturiser that has all the important vitamins your skin needs. Sometimes these moisturisers can make your skin a little oily, but if I’m having a day at home these can be acceptable. I do use two different moisturisers, because one is waaaaaaay more expensive than the other one. So it just depends on how broke i am.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + New formula 125ml Very Dry to Dry Combo Skin
SIMPLE HYD LIGHT MOIST
3. DRINK LOTS OF WATER. I personally didn’t notice until recently how much water really effects your skin. Drinking more water instantly cleared up my skin and removed any redness I was getting.
4. LOOK AT SELL BY DATE. Don’t put products on your skin, that you’ve had a long time or have a sell by or use by date on them. You wouldn’t eat an out of date yogurt so you wouldn’t want to put something that’s gone off on your face. Right?
Those are my small tips to help your skin out on the bad days. Just to note, I’m no expert but i wanted to share what helps me. Here is an after picture of me looking a lot happier with my clear skin, just to end on a nice note.
Have a lovely day.
