My Unhealthy Life
Three years ago, when I qualified as a teacher, I suddenly broke out in spots. I just couldn’t understand why someone as old as me had Acne! Perfect timing, it also coincided with being asked to be a bridesmaid many times over. I tried everything to get rid of my blemishes: various skincare ranges, N-Lite laser treatment and I spent close to £1000 on acupuncture.
Changing My Skin
Having started a new job, I knew it was partly stress-related but I sensed the issue went deeper. When I was introduced to CosMedix by a friend I realised I had to take more of an investigative approach to my skin.
Changing My Life
The fabulous ladies at the London Wellness Centre helped me to realise that I needed to work with my body from the inside out. Various tests revealed that I suffered from a mild case of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
My CosMedix Picks
I saw a remarkable change in my skin following the DERMAplan Acne treatment. I re-evaluated my diet and started to nourish my skin from within so I take CosMedix SKINutrition: Restore and Balance every morning; they make me feel super healthy. As a result, I’m rarely sick these days. Post programme, I now use CosMedix Purity Clean exfoliating wash, a Spa Cell Facial Mitt, Purity Balance acid toner and Clarity Serum daily. As someone with pale skin and an oil issue, Reflect SPF30 natural sunscreen is a must, EVERY DAY! I only ever use mineral make up with Mystic, a light hydrating mist which I spritz before application.
Other Product Picks
My handbag must-have is Lucas Paw-Paw ointment – fabulous for dry lips. I also love Tom Ford’s Black Orchid fragrance.
Now I’ve dealt with the Acne, I’m prepping for a Deep Sea Peel to tackle my scarring. I feel so healthy and totally in control. My skin looks clean, clear, glowing and bright. This treatment system has changed my life.
