Skincare Saviors

Beauty, Style

For the past 6 months or so I have been using the Proactive skincare 3 step core system which is their skin smoothing exfoliator, pore targeting treatment and complection correcting hydrator. If after reading this you want to try it yourself click here:

They often have discounts and it is much cheaper ordering it than getting it in boots.

Why does my skin love it?

My acne has cleared up so much since using it, the products don’t seem to irritate it and make it red and my skin still feels moisturized after using it.

The only thing I would say is that I wish they had more of the moisturizer because the exfoliator seems to last forever but I seem to run out of moisturizer much quicker.

The exfoliator is really good at clearing up my skin whilst not making it red and dry. Whilst the treatment and moisturiser close up my pores and keep my skin hydrated. I was told I have dehydrated skin so it gets really dry but also really oily and these seem to be the best products for my skin.

It has sylicalic acid in it which can make you more prone to sunburn so I do tend to use a foundation with spf in it like the Charlotte tilbury magic foundation or a suncream on my face most of the time.

Trying out ‘acne ultrasound peeling’!

Beauty, Style

As a teenager, I have always suffered with acne and have tried so many products to clear out my congested skin.

Today I tried out the ‘peeling’ or ‘blade’ facial as an introductory trial at coco red in New Milton. Now this to me seemed terrifying at first however it does not men cutting out your spots! It does remind me of a razor in the sound and feel but it actually uses ultrasound technology to clear out your pores. The vibrations move it out of the pore basically! It felt really relaxing although the high pitched sound made it feel a little worrying but it didn’t hurt at all! The lady at Caci was really lovely as well; she was very passionate about skin and the effect clear skin had upon her clients.

She also gave me advise about what was causing the acne on my skin- apparently it is really dehydrated whereas i always thought my skin was more oily. The blade is also not so harsh as chemical exfoliants; although my skin dig red because it was basically like having all my acne squeezed at once it did calm down quite quickly.

Have you tried any of these kind of beauty treatments? Did they work for you?

I was really impressed by this technology and the appearance and feel of my skin so will hopefully be going back to have a few more facials! i will keep you posted on how it goes xxx
