Quick Skin Update & Apologies!
Apologies for the lack of updates, university has completely taken over as I have had way too many exams and haven’t had the time to post. I really have missed doing the site so I plan on updating much more frequently and making time for it.
Its been 5 months since I stopped taking the very strong skin medication accutane. (You can see my full post explaining the entire journey here). My skin is still doing pretty well, I get the occasional spot however no where near close to acne, which is amazing! When I look back now on the experience I can’t imagine having that bad side effects and I also can’t imagine how I coped without alcohol for that long, I know thats probably bad to say but its true. But I am so glad that I did it and put up with the horrendous side effects it caused. I would 100% do it all again if I had too.
Over christmas I have had a few ups and downs with my skin, more good times then bad. However, I do think that the bad eating habits and exam stress over christmas really had an impact. I think sometimes people overlook the effects of diet and stress on your skin, and it really is an important factor. Since finishing exams I have started eating much healthier which I can see has already made a huge impact, and my skin is no longer worrying me. In the past I have posted about some clear skin foods, which you can read here. I am going to do a few more posts on what food is good for your skin in the near future. As for stress, well sometimes it is difficult to reduce it, but make sure you take time for your self and relax a little, I always find having a bath usually helps.
A while ago I was sent a sample of help clear skin supplements, I have only just started to use these properly as I wanted to see if they did have a good effect on my skin (as too soon after accutane I would’t know if anything else was making a difference.In a few weeks when I have finished the box ill give an update!
I have another post in the making about my absolutely new favourite brand, which I will upload tomorrow! So please keep an eye out for that.
