Help – I have spots

October 21, 2014 Off By Laura TMOT
When I was a teenager I was one of the lucky ones. I never got called Pizza Face or spotty. I had a few breakouts but nothing worth crying over or shouting about. Well it seems that now I have turned 30 things have changed. Apparently it is to do with my hormones! Well whatever it is I want it to stop. For the last few months I have been getting dreadful
acne along my jaw line. Not even small bumpy ones but big red angry looking ones that could wink at you if you looked to closely. I mean they are huge and no amount of concealer is going to fool anyone.

So anyway I decided to have a look into ways to reduce them and I came up with a few interesting suggestions.

Baking Powder – You can make a paste of baking powder and water and massage it onto your skin

Oatmeal – You could massage cooled porridge into your skin (1 cup oats, 1 cup water)

Honey – You could cover your face in honey for 20 minutes

Cider Vinegar – You could wash your face with a mixture of Cider Vinegar and water (1 part cider vinegar to 3 parts water)

Egg Whites – Whip up some egg whites, apply to face in layers allowing to dry in between. 3 to 4 layers is enough. Wash off after 20 minutes.

Banana Peel – rub a banana peel over your skin in a circular motion.


Now I dont really want to smell like breakfast, a cake or like I have been pickled so these remedies don’t really appeal to me. I am definitely more of a medical treatment person than a home made remedy type so I was interested to read about the Skn Clinics Acne Treatments and if mine continue to get worse it will definitely be something I look into. For now I am going to drink more water, try to get more sleep and take a multivitamin incase it is a vitamin deficiency causing it.
