I think everyone takes a look at their face every so often and thinks f**k, I look like utter crap today. Well that's been happening to me a lot lately and I'm not gonna lie, it's been rough. My skin has been throwing a major bitch fit and I clearly need to make some big changes to put it right. I very much believe in honesty so I've shown you exactly what I'm starting with so that you can follow my progress and see any changes. This is my big round naked face with all of its flaws. You will see that I am suffering bad breakouts right now and that I have a lot of red pigmentation. I have an oily/dry combination skin but it's also very sensitive. I get ridiculously freckly in the summer which just adds to the uneven look and at 29 I have quite distinct fine lines appearing on my forehead, eyes and mouth. To complete the 'walking dead' look I am extremely pale/sallow skinned and have awful dark circles! Lucky me! Now lets be honest, not all of these things can be changed without the aid of some good makeup (I have literally always looked like I've just been exhumed), but I am hoping that with a better skincare routine and some dietary and lifestyle changes, that some of these things can be fixed.The starting point, as boring and obvious as it is, is to drink more water. I live on sugar free fizzy stuff mostly and it's not surprising that these chemically enhanced drinks show through the skin. I also need to eat less crap. Again with the chemicals, freshly cooked food (and I do love to cook), is a far better option than easy, fire in the oven kinda stuff. More fresh air, as I'm a bit (a lot) of a vampire and tend to stay out of daylight whenever possible. Not sure why, maybe it's the eternal goth in my soul... and the fear of my hair fading out! Finally I need to find a good skincare routine that suits my face and that doesn't take up too much of my time. I have been through loads of brands from high end to high street and I'm struggling to find the right one, but I will and you will be the first to know! If anyone has any suggestions, stick them in the comments!
