giving up battling with spots. Watch
Cure for spots? Concealer!
Magic stuff that
In October I went on Roaccutane and it worked wonders, really got rid of all my spots. However because of the dryness I'd recommend what I used - Simple Foaming Facial Wash, followed by Simple Rich Replenishing/Light Hydrating moisturiser depending on what stage in the treatment you are.
Finished the roacc in march and by the time my follow up appointment came in august my skin had started to regrease - only lightly, but enough to cause breakouts.
Anyway, the doctor prescribed me with PanOxyl face wash and this really does work wonders!!! Started using it on 12th, haven't had anything other than really tiny 1 day spots since about 15th.
So yeah, you can beat spots, or at least control them, just takes some effort!!!
I know what you mean OP... the amount they charge thesedays for spot treatment products is an absolute joke. They must be rolling in it.
Luckily the ones on my face have died down in the last year and are no longer a problem... just the ones on my back now... they are an absolute nightmare.
The spots on my Dad's back didn't clear up until he was 45 (few years ago now )
To the OP - water gets rid of a lot of spots, sadly not all But still a lot more effective than spot treatment and more affordable
Fingers crossed for growing out of it!
1. Drink plenty of water (2l per day).
2. Don't stay up late, keep a good sleep routine.
3. Don't idly touch your face or rest your head on your hands. Treat your face very gently, esp when drying and applying products.
4. Get outside, get your face in the Sun's rays. I find my skin clears if I've been more active.
5. Take at least one shower per day.
My advice is to keep your life regular and organised. That way you'll drink enough water, get enough sleep, get enough exercise. I find my spots go down when I'm at uni, where I have more forced routine than at home.
