Banish The Blemishes

Banish The Blemishes
Nobody likes spots, whether it's one massive planet on your chin or a couple of pesky little ones dotted on your forehead, all of which can really rain on our parades. I have oily skin which can often resort in having a couple of these banes on my face. I have been experimenting with a variety of products lately (old and new) and upping my skincare game recently so I decided to share what I have been using to help banish the blemishes.

La Roche-Posay Serozinc - This is like the invisibility cloak on Harry Potter, it is such an amazing toner. I used to believe the myth that toners did nothing for your skin until I tried this product. After cleansing my face I go ahead and spritz this all over my face and let it dry naturally. Redness gets reduced, spots dry up and my face overall feels a lot healthier.

Origin Spot Remover - I remember hating this product at the beginning and then falling in love with it months later. This spot treatment is a life saver for any little breakouts - dab a tiny amount over a spot and wallah! This product reduces any swelling so quick (like within a few hours quick!). I always like to use this product on those 'skincare emergency days'.

S5 Serum* - I never really understood the purpose of serums I just thought they were unnecessary add-on's into a skincare routine. Oh how wrong was I. I have been applying this serum to my face every other evening before bed. It does take a little while longer to dry in compared to other spot treatments but the results are worth it. S5 has completely got rid of any redness I have and the next morning my face looks a lot more clearer.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo - Y'know when your skin isn't that bad but you think it is? This product makes a difference in getting your skin looking healthy and fresh. I have been applying this in the evening if I don't use my serum and by morning my skin looks a lot more awake. I think this product is amazing for everything - redness, reducing spots and generally clearing my skin. I always like to use this when I feel really unhappy with my overall skin as it helps to keep it looking clearer.

Australian Tea Tree Stick* - This is new'in to my collection of spot treatments and it reminds me a lot of teenage tea tree products I tried growing up. This doesn't smell very pleasant I'll be honest (nothing like tea-tree) but, it does make a difference in reducing any pesky spots. Not so much under the skin spots but little ones it does help reduce them in size. I think this would be perfect for teenagers who suffer with hormonal spots or even whiteheads I think this product could remove those!
