My Skin Journey : 6 Months On

. February 11, 2018 .

Never did I think I'd be sharing a series of bare-faced images here on the blog, but I'm finally at a point where I feel comfortable and confident enough in my skin to do so. Call these my 'after' images (read my first post here to see the before), 6 months on in my skincare journey with Proactiv+.

The main improvements for me have been the complete reduction in blemishes. Over the summer last year I suffered from terrible breakouts – across my forehead in particular. In an area hard to conceal they left me feeling self-conscious and depressed about the skin on my face. After a couple of months of using the Proactiv+ 3-step system daily, they eventually cleared up and I'm delighted to say they've stayed that way since. Sure I'll still get the occasional hormonal break out here and there, but those stubborn forehead blemishes are now a thing of the past.

I've also seen a huge difference in the blocked pores around my t-zone (bye bye blackheads), reduction in redness and the overall hydration, suppleness, and softness of my skin has never felt so good. Here's a round-up of my must-have products from the range should you want to join the journey to better skin yourself:

These are the core essentials. The 3 step system is comprised of aSkin Smoothing Exfoliator (excellent for those stubborn blocked pores) with salicylic acid, step two is Pore Targeting Treatment and finally aComplexion Perfecting Hydrator. These 3 are my secret weapons, super straightforward to use and, thanks to the handy size of the 30-day kits, they come with me absolutely everywhere.

I adore this product so much I did a whole review post on it here. I use it as a bi-weekly treat for the skin, it's my go-to when my face needs a little extra TLC.

These are the bomb.com. We all lead busy lives, and after a long day or, ahem, night out let's say we can't always be bothered to stand at the sink and perform our full skincare routine like we know we should (these were my saviours at festivals last year). These cleanser infused wipes are a quick and easy way to remove makeup whilst doing your skin some good too.

The Mark Fading Pads are a great renewing and resurfacing treatment for the skin. Combating pigmentation, fine lines and dark marks on the skin, they make me feel like a new woman (every 2-3 nights that I use them ;)).

This one is a newbie for me, we were kindly given a few new products to try out at the final Proactiv+ event in December and this is my fave of the bunch. My skin can become easily irritated in the winter months, plus its a few shades paler so any redness becomes pretty obvious. I keep this serum in the fridge, it's great for calming down my complexion and the cooling roller application is great for de-puffing too.  

As always, thanks for reading and thanks for following this skincare journey of mine – I hope if you're struggling with skin issues I've inspired you to give this system ago and use my discount code 'STYLE118' until the 28th of Feb. You won't regret it, promise.
