I've always been really blessed to have quite good skin, until last year when I got a Mirena coil. It's messed with my hormone levels massively and I have constant horrendous breakouts.

Someone recommended Sudocrem, and I tried it and honestly I really noticed a difference after just 2-3 days. After about a week my skin was almost clear. I stopped using it and now my skin is really bad again

It was on my shopping list to go pick some up today actually and I completely forgot

I've noticed that my skin problems have been different depending on my age. But I've always had awful skin sigh, not like my mum who has the most envied skin I know, trust me not to inherit it lol. I have rosacea which I now also get in my eyes, spots are not so bad now, but I have acne scars. For me, what has made the difference is diet, if I cut out sugar and processed food, my skin really looks so much better. Skin shows inflammation in the body in general, and its also supposed to reflect brain health, so I really need to get back on track with my eating. I will try the oil cleanse though! I also have a book about the Japanese skin care, but I haven't had time to read it properly, let alone do the time consuming practices she narrates.

Deffinately going to try the oil. My diet is quite rubbish, so will try to improve that. I have redness on my cheecks and always have but its never realy bothered me, my foundation does a good job of covering it. The spots though, although hidden by the foundation mostly, really bug me.

After researching the oil thing I've decided it's definitely not for me and won't be risking it, I think it's one of those trends that works for some but can have bad consequences for others, and knowing my skin I don't think it would suit me at all.

I too researched it and won't be risking it, as people with my skin problems say it really mucked up their skin for years! I might work wonders for me but I'm apprehensive to try it so will leave it and I'll never know

Yeah this is what I found on acne forms. I guess we all have such different skin that what works well for some won't for others, not worth the risk for me, I'm finally getting over my acne on this medication.

Micellar water was absolutely hands down the worst thing I've ever used. I thought it was great until I had never ending issues with spots. Stopping it really made a huge difference.

I have cut down dairy a great deal and that too helps. Whenever I drink a glass of milk I suffer within a day of two and end up with spots. It's certainly an issue for me.

Dairy I'm sure is a trigger for me too, not just spots, just my skin looking like crap when I have any
