Thing #92: Follow a Skincare Regime

I think it’s about time I got cracking on this list of mine. This was an easy one.  I started my skincare regime on Day 1 of The Day Zero Project and have followed it, pretty much religiously, since then.

I have long complained of problematic, breakout prone skin.  It has been pretty bad at times, but never quite bad enough to seek medical help.  I mostly put it down to stress. Funnily enough, I have never considered my dairy laden diet, lack of any skincare regime and habit of sleeping in my makeup to be contributing factors. Until now.

I chose Proactiv Solution, not because of the hilarious Jessica Simpson adverts, but because a few people I know told me that they used it and it worked. So I did it.  And I have seen a noticeable improvement in my skin. Surprise Surprise.

My skin type isn’t oily- if anything it can be a bit dry sometimes.  It is temperamental and prone to nasty sore breakouts. One of my biggest complaints is that when I am run down, my skin looks very dull and tired.  If you have skin like mine, I suggest you give this a try. Get it here.

 

€5 has been donated to the Ardoch Youth Foundation for the completion of this ‘thing’.  I read about this cause on The Belle Lumiere- Jessica is trying to raise $200AUD to fund a breakfast club for underprivileged children- read about it and donate by clicking here

P.S. If there are any specific charities that you would like me to support through The Day Zero Project, leave a comment below with details or send me an email about them.

I've been thinking about it too. My skin's normally fairly clear, but when I get stressed, I start to break out. :o(

Thanks for visiting my blog! :o)

i know of some friends who tried this product.. aside from the "it's expensive" comment i got from them, they also said it's actually effective!

I tried this products a while ago, because I was also reassured by these famous people who were telling such goods thing about them. I don't want to discourage you, but my personal experience was a bit disappointing. Hope it works for you...! besos!

I'm still on the fence about this because of the divided reviews I've read. Bu if it's worked for you that's great. It seems to work for some and not for others.

Great blog- I started following. Thank you for the comment. It really brightens my day to find them!

I agree. It's totally necessarry to have a regime. I use Modern Friction by Origins and I love it. (I've got really dry skin that has to be exfoliated a lot.)

Muah!
