I’ve had a couple of messages referencing the fact that I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve got my acne under control and asking how I managed it. Whilst I’ve replied to the messages, I thought it might not be a bad idea to write a blog about it too. It’s a weird one that came from desperation of trying absolutely everything I could get my hands on and having to deal with the continual frustration of the rollercoaster that starts with the hope and excitement of trying a new product, followed by the disappointment that it doesn’t work. I tried this method because I reached a point where I thought that my skin was so blimin’ awful anyway, that if I managed to damage it more it wouldn’t make much difference. Yeah, I’m prone to drama. I’d just like to make very clear that this method is not going to be for everyone and for some it probably could do damage so tread carefully please and be aware that you have been warned!
So if you do decide to give this routine a go, please tread very carefully, listen to your skin (god that sounds cheesy but hopefully you know what I mean) and stop immediately if your skin looks like it’s reacting badly to it. For me there was no purging or period I waited where I thought skin needs to get worse before it gets better, so if your skin starts getting worse, stop!
It’s also worth mentioning that if you can’t bring yourself to rub lemon juice all over your face, applying it directly to spots with a cotton bud makes a really excellent spot treatment. So when life gives you lemons, make a spot treatment. Or something like that.
