Babe, what's up with your face??
Last week I broke out in a few blemishes on my cheek and laugh lines. It's pretty typical of me to break out here specially when I don't stick to my skincare routine (More on that tomorrow) but this break out took so long to heal and I was getting a little tired of it so I used my extra strong spot cream - Avene TriAcneal cream.
This stuff is serious, it does one of two things -
Brings the spot the surface to you can remove it carefully or reducing the size and allows it to fade over time with a peeling effect which removes the old layer of the skin to reduce scarring.
But there is a problem -
I AM THE MOST IMPATIENT PERSON EVER!
I use it at night only and it usually works but me being impatient decided to use it morning and night and any time I felt like it really...
To quote my favourite movie - Big mistake, huge!
Woke up with this orange, peeling, red mess to which my bf says -
Babe, what's up with your face?
My skin looks greasy in the picture due the cream I was wearing but you can see the orange staining, The cream turns orange on contact and the redness is a dry rash, the skin is so tight and on my chin you can just about see the flakey skin - Horrible!
I stopped using the spot treatment (obviously) and I keep the skin clean and to deal with the flakiness and dryness I am using Elizabeth Arden 8 hour Cream. Works a treat!
Best advice I can give anyone is be patient!
Hope that explains why you can only see half my face in my new video:
I didn't want to miss an upload but I couldn't wear makeup on the other side. Oh well! :/
