Since Xmas my skin is rank! It's spotty but feels really dry, and to the touch it feels like it's sunburnt. It's unsightly and I guess moving to a new area and meeting lots of people for the first time I feel really concious of it.
Ive slathered some of C's Aveeno cream on today that he uses for his eczema but I'm at a loss as to what to do with it!!

I could have written this! I have put it down to poor diet and a change in our weather (it's windy and wet!!) What products do you use? have you put anything different on recently? I went for an Elemis facial last weekend, it made a massive difference. I've been putting the SOS cream on every morning as a moisturiser too. For a quick fix on the dry patches, I used vaseline with aloe vera. It definitely helped.

Yep I'd say it's the weather and bad December in terms of food and drink. My face broke out badly from last two weeks Dec until recently it's just clearing up now. Even my eye area was looking bad. I've started using Crème de la Mar eye cream and slathering on the moisturiser of a night time, plus ensuring I'm washing my face properly and I use a daily facial exfoliator which helps with blackheads and clogged pores.

It could be the greedy pig diet I've been following for the past couple of weeks lol xx

I am treating myself to a facial for this very reason. I am also investing in some new make up as I am starting to look my age if not more!

Is that the date you've booked for Lauren? I still can't rate my studio fix highly enough.

I've not used anything new to warrant the flare up. Before Xmas I started using the sensitive face wash from body shop agai, I've used it before an I don't feel irritated straight after using it. I think I'll clean my brushes in case they are dirty.

It's more than likely the crap weather and poor Christmas diet hon. Up the water intake

My skin's looking terrible right now. Its partly rubbish food and drink over Christmas, the heating and the lack of water. Plus probably some hormones too.
So I'm trying to drink lots of water and hoping that the improved diet will help too.

Come on belle you know I only drink coke!!! Although that ad on tv is getting to me saying there are 52 sugar cubes in one bottle. I'm surprised I've got any teeth!
14/01/2014 at 13:06
Really, you just drink coke? I'm surprised you have teeth as well
14/01/2014 at 13:17
It's just a bad habit, I do like other drinks xx
14/01/2014 at 13:20

14/01/2014 at 13:31
Drop the Coke Munchkin, its soooooo bad for you!
14/01/2014 at 13:42
I've not had any today! None at all!!
14/01/2014 at 13:47
Thats good, takes 30 days to break a habit!! save the pennies in a jar you would have spent on it and treat yourself to a facial on your fab new skin!! remember I have not drunk diet coke since May and I was a major addict!

God how did you do it!! I have no will power at all, although didn't drink it when it was affecting my gall stones so I guess I can do it if I have to??!!
