Do You Have Naughty Skin Days.....?


Today I decided my skin is extremely naughty! Do you get 'skin naughty' days? I looked in a 5x zoom mirror today and nearly fainted.....

I am going to show you a couple of (reluctant) pictures, they don't look AS bad as they do in 'real life'.


Enlarged pores are driving me insane at the moment, they spread across my nose and even onto my cheeks, yes all these get covered up with makeup but without they are awful.


Blotchy skin, I really need to find a product that helps with this.....any ideas?


Black heads/Oily skin - This has been a long time battle for me, I have oily skin and an active job which results in lots of excess oil.

When I looked into the evil mirror it made me quite upset. When I was younger my skin was fantastic, clean, clear and spot free, but as I am getting older (nearly 25, not exactly old) I can see signs of aging and the oiliness is just continuing, I have found 'quick fixes' but nothing long term.

So I am asking you for your help/recommendations.

I want less oily skin, with smaller pores and the product must have an anti aging aspect to it too. There is so much out there at the moment to use, cleansers, toners, moisturizers  serums, oils etc but how do you know what suits your skin without testing first. I for one don't mind spending a lot of money of the RIGHT product but I largely rely on recommendations.

What do you use to make your skin look clearer?

  1. Honestly I looked at the pictures and I thought erm where lol!

    But I have to say there's a couple of Soap and Glory pore masks which work really well, I like the Hot Pore, a great product im sure you know about is Porefessional by Benefit which wont get rid of them but will hide them.

  2. I'm using the body shop tea tree pore minimiser at the moment which I find is just as good as the benefit one but cheaper!
    If it helps, your skin is so much better than mine!

  4. First of all...
    1. Stop looking in the magnified mirror, it's not real!
    2. Most of us have skin like that close up, so stop worrying

    I haven't found any 'wonder' products. I've tried Alpha H Liquid Gold but can't make up my mind about it. Really like the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask but it's quite pricey as you say! x

  5. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! That will resolve the excess oiliness - my skin was unbelievably oily until I started moisturising - it turns out it was just dehydrated and producing excess oil to compensate. I have suffered with problem skin for the last 10 years, but now see a dermatologist. I did a post on skin care advice for oily/combo skin here:

  6. My skin has been playing up recently (it HATES winter) and I've been finding Laidbare's For Richer For Porer face mask is working for me! Other than that, I'd just say remember to take off your make-up properly at the end of the day and drink LOADS of water, like 8 or more glasses a day, really helps! xx
