Question time

Q. Do you know what ingredients that are good for combination skin. I'm not even sure if I have it! my skin gets very dry sometimes but I'm still oily? I have lots of pimples on my t-zone..Do you know what you could use on them?

Sound like you do have combination skin I do too. Have you checked out my video on how to care for combination skin?? (
Make sure to use a toner, is very important to help control those spot and use an exfoliater to help that dry skin stay smooth. Toners keep the skin clean which will prevent and heal spots. Toner with tea tree oil in it works wonders! But only use it on the oily bit.
A spot treatment to get rid of those spots fast; you'll want to try something that has witch hazel in it which is found in many over the counter treatments like toners, cleansers and wipes.
If you're having problems finding it check out your nearest herbalist they should have it and will help you. Also acne treatments that have benzyl peroxide in it which is very strong acne treatments might help.
I hope that helps, remember to always follow the instructions on the product you use carefully.
Question Time!

Just some of the questions that i get asked!

I have a question!
Q. well i have this skin condition i believe its called millia or something like that and all it is are white pimple like dots on my eyes and cheeks how do i get rid of them?

A. Oh yeah I've heard of that. well you can get a special electrolysis treatment but its rare and expensive! very difficult to get rid of and i kind of have its really annoying.
Okay around your eyes be really really careful! I've heard of using steam and then a tip of a needle i would NOT try this sounds scary :(

To Remove
Right ok steaming your face helps.
Using a light exfoliater (get the sensitive one its safer)
Don't load the skin with too much creams dab off excess in the areas.
Could use a Toner on the areas or germolene (medicated cream)

To Prevent
Avoid using harsh chemicals
Don't expose your skin to too much sun light.
Go easy on heavy creams!

To Cover
After you're finish your make-up use a light concealer just under the spot to hid the shadow
it casts that all you can do.

Spots facts

Beauty Solving Skin Problems

I’m here to talk all about spots, everyone gets spot some more than others but it happens and we let it bother us. It ruins our confident and even ruins our day. So you can get spots on your face, back, neck, chest and they can happen for many different reasons like stress, diet, vitamin deficiency, age and also it can be inherited!

Okay so there are many types of spot and they should all be treated differently!
Here are some of the main ones:

Whiteheads – are follicles that are filled with plugs of sebum and sloughed-off cells, but have only a microscopic opening to the skin surface. Since the air cannot reach the follicle, the material is not oxidized, and remains white.

Blackhead - are filled with plugs of sebum and sloughed-off cells and have undergone a chemical reaction resulting in the oxidation of melanin. This gives the material in the follicle the typical black color. (Hence blackheads)

Cyst - is a closed sac or cyst below the surface of the skin that has a lining that resembles the uppermost part of a hair follicle and fills with a fatty white, semi-solid material called sebum. Sebum is produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis.

Papules- Tender varying in size from a pinhead to 1 cm they can be brown, purple, pink or red in colour may open when scratched and become infected and crusty

Pustules- A pustule is different from a pimple only because it contains white blood cells. As the immune system fights off the infection, sometimes white blood cells pile up creating pus in the pore.

Nodules- are painful; deep under the skin can grow to quite large sizes and last a long time.
