Hey guys! How are you? I hope you’re doing better than me! My husband and I are both full of a rather nasty cold. On top of that, my poor cat is on antibiotics and painkillers as she’s been bitten by a mean neighbouring cat! You wait until I see that cat…!! Joking. Maybe. I just wanted to share a post with you, which is a round-up of 200+ experts’ top skincare tips!
Experts’ Top Skincare Tips
Fix Your Skin recently asked for my top three skincare tips, to include in their expert round up post. You can read the post here and get some amazing skincare tips! I’m number 77 if you want to find me 🙂
Firstly, I’m definitely no expert but am very flattered to be included with others who are! I have a big interest in skincare, as I’ve struggled with hormonal acne and acne scarring for many years. When you’ve suffered with bad skin, you naturally start doing a lot of research, and trying anything you can to improve your skin! I’m sure you know what I mean, if you’ve been in a similar position.
At the moment, my skin is at the best it has been in years. This is thanks, in no small part, to a careful skincare routine and regular facials/LED treatments.
Treating Acne Scarring
I don’t have many active spots at the moment, which is pretty rare for me! I do however have some areas of quite bad acne scarring, from having a break from the pill last year. My hormones were unbalanced and my skin went to all hell!! Damn hormones.
My skincare routine is focused around trying to fade the acne scarring at the moment. I use a lot of acid/glycolic exfoliating toners, moisturising oils and LED treatments. The Light Salon at Harvey Nichols in Leeds gave me a series of four LED facials, which were really helpful. You can read all about it and my review here.
I was also kindly sent a TrulyClear home LED facial device (review here) which I’ve just started using on the acne/scarring setting so fingers crossed! There is no quick fix to better skin, but staying consistent is the key. I should hopefully see some decent results in a few months time if I stick to my routine. Most of all, I want to prevent any more acne (hence stopping any more future acne scarring!)
What are your top skincare tips? Do you have any star products that really help with your acne, or even just keep your clear skin looking good? Let me know in the comments or on social media! I need all the help I can get haha 😀
