Skin skin skin. It's so temperamental. When it's behaving itself, life is AMAZING. When it's being a jerk, I just want to go back to bed. I used to think that as long as I had makeup to cover it all up, it was fine- but there is SUCH a better alternative...pamper your skin. You'll be able to go without makeup (gasp), or- when you do you use makeup, it will perform and look 100% better- you'll be getting your money's worth. Over the past year or so, I've managed to get my skin in check, and it's one of the first things people comment on. I use a range of drug store and high end products, which I'm going to share with you below....but don't worry, this time I'm giving cheaper alternatives for everything so you don't get discouraged! I've used and swear by ALL of these products and techniques (including the cheaper alternatives)- please feel free to ask any questions below!
Trying to figure out what products to use on your skin can be a complete minefield. Trying to figure out why your skin behaves the way it does is even more difficult. We're bombarded with conflicting opinions, advice, and advertising campaigns which tell us all manner of different things; so to say that we often end up confused is an understatement. I decided to put an end to this madness, and book in to see Lauren Harding from The Face Place- she's their Skin Team Leader, and a qualified medical skin therapist. I knew that she'd be able to tell me EXACTLY what was happening with my skin.
