My secret to glowing, clear skin

Up until recently my face was covered in spots and scars, many of you would never notice as you would only see me with makeup on. About 6 months ago I made the decision to take care of my skin and it has made such a huge difference. For the past 6 weeks I have had the clearest skin, about three spots decided to make an appearance but this was usually around my time of the month. I decided to share my tips with you as I know so many women suffer with this problem. Please note I don't suffer from serious acne, just regular breakouts. These things may not work for everyone, but if it helps you let me know! 

1. The first step I took was to stop using the face wipes. They are so so terrible for your skin as they only take off the first layer of your make-up. They don't cleanse your skin or remove makeup from your pores. Pores on your face get clogged with make-up, oil and everyday dirt that you encounter. If you don't clean your skin properly these clogged pores will lead to spots and blackheads.

2. I purchased a cleanser! I picked up the Garnier Micellar Cleansing water in Boots (You can also buy it in Penneys) and it was about €4. Within a week of using this cleanser I noticed such a big improvement in my skin. It comes in a huge 400ml bottle and I still have a third left after two months, so it's extremely good value. It is such an amazing product, it removes every last bit of my make up and leaves my face feeling fresh. Even if I don't wear makeup I will use this micellar water at the end of the night to remove any dirt on my face.

3. I got sent the product 'Dream Dots for Spots' which you apply to your spots to clear them. It is a unique, absorbent, hydro matrix patch which targets spots overnight and relieves redness/ inflammation. There are no harsh ingredients and the patch is so lightweight you can hardly feel it on your skin. The patch absorbs the spot exudate ( the white stuff, yuck!), a moist healing environment is formed and the patch even maintains ideal ph balance, temperature and hydration levels which aid faster healing. I was so thrilled with the effectiveness of this product, my spots would disappear within 2 days and left no marks on my face. There are so many benefits of using these dots: spots disappear, less inflamation and pain, so scars and no scabs, contains the spot so you dont breakout elsewhere and most of all I found that the dots stopped me picking and touching my spots.

4. The makeup eraser is such a brilliant tool which removes your makeup by just using warm water. I use this quite often in conjunction with the micellar water. My full review is here

5. Now all our Mammys have told us this but we never listen!! I hate the feeling of having a spot on my face. I have to be honest, for years, the minute I noticed a spot I would pop it. I stopped doing this about 3 months ago and it was a pure fluke. I got acrylic nails and they were a bit too long so I physically couldn't pop my spots. Once I saw a difference in my skin I made the conscious decision to stop and I swear I'll never go back to my spot popping ways!

Hope this helps some of you lovely ladies!
Lots of Love,
