    Hi

    Just wondering if any of you guys have any tips for "perfect skin"

    I suffer from bad outbreaks of black heads, not just on my nose but in other areas of my face. I have tried black head creams, black head creams with the tiny beads in as well as face masks and them nose strips things but none of them seem to work and get rid of them.

    So any one got anything they can suggest ?? And if so could you say the brand or where to get it from, please bare in mind i dont have much money.

    Have you considered asking your GP to refer you to dermatology? That is what I ended up doing due to my horrendous skin, as I find nothing works.

    I am due my derma appointment in a few weeks (there are waiting lists) but it could help, as they can give out pills or creams etc that need a prescription. I just find that over the counter stuff doesn't work for me, and in fact makes things worse.

    I have black heads pretty bad too but nothing works and I am a bit too embarrassed to go to the doctors about as it's a bit insulting as I don't really have acne I just have quite a few prominent unpleasant blackheads on my nose.

    You should steam your face and then use pore strips. You can also try mud masks too!

    People tell me I have good skin however my techniques may not be suitable therefore it's best to seek advice from your GP.

    - Wash face and dry with paper towel
    - Apply a honey, lemon juice and flour face mask (you can find this online)
    - Let it dry completely
    - Take a shower, rub the face mask off
    - Always dry face with paper towel

    - Drink plenty of water
    - Drink green tea to remove impurities from body

    - You can also try D-Pharma
