I love reading about products that help Spot prone skin because even at 35 i still get spots.
Luckily i have found a couple of products that really seem to help when i have a flare up.
Liz Earle Spot On !
Spot on comes in a 6ml Roller ball priced at £7.90
This little spot busting find contains Tea tree oil, Melissa and Lavender to soothe and calm spots and pimples.
I love how this seems to take spots down so quickly and reduces redness and swelling. You only need a small amount as you apply it directly on the affected area so even though it's just 6ml it's long lasting so great value for money.
This is the first product i reach for when i start to feel that horrible tingle under the skin when you know a beauty is just waiting to erupt.
The 2nd amazing product i have been using which really seems to be helping to normalise my skin is:
Aromatherapy Associates Refining Face Oil
Priced at £37 available from Aromatherapy Associates
Now i have been applying this every night without fail and it has made such a difference to my skin. I am always very wary of applying oil on my spot prone skin as some products seem to make things worse.
This particular product though seems to have a purifying effect on my skin. After using this i wake up with my skin looking less oily and spots seem to be reduced. It also seems to have a healing effect and so spots seem to clear up a lot quicker than normal.
The ylang ylang and lavender are really fragrant which i love but if you don't like a strong fragrance then it might not be for you. I find the smell quite relaxing and i like to massage it into my skin as a bit of a night time ritual.
I love the fact it is non greasy but yet it feels like it is feeding my skin with goodness.
At my age i have to be careful as a lot of the products for spot prone skin seem to be really harsh and can be far too drying. That's why i love the gentle approach of these two products.
Do you suffer with spots and if so what are your favourite products that you recommend ???
