Disclaimer alert!!! I do not have perfect skin, I am not a skin specialist and I am by no means a “know it all”…
Since starting my blog, my skin was playing up a bit. In recent months it’s finally calmed down and I wanted so share with you some of my learnings.
My skin is combination- oily, but slightly dehydrated. In the past couple of months I haven’t had any blemishes (I’m so surprised) but if I do, it’s around my nose or chin (hormonal zones..)
Here are a few things that helped clear up my skin:
Back to Basics
Fish Oil Tablets are a great source of fatty acids and are beneficial for your skin! I take 2 tablets every day (when I remember…)
So simple, but thought I should remind you all. If I’ve been eating terrible or drinking a lot it shows on my skin. Lucky for me I don’t drink soft drinks and am a big lover for water. Make sure to drink loads of water, it really does help!
Minimise Your Milk Intake
There have been a few articles suggesting that milk leads to acne however no research proves this. Some dermatologists recommend cutting down on milk if you’re suffering from acne. I’ve taken this approach for the last 8 months and my skin has cleared up dramatically. I still have coffee and yogurt etc but have smaller portions so I don’t become intolerant and my skin won’t play up.
