Get your pucker on – Dry Chapped Lips

Winter is coming! Yes I’m a die-hard Game of Thrones gal and I just couldn’t resist. Apart from me not being able to feel my hands most mornings due to the chill, I don’t want my lips to feel dry and leathery like dragon scales. With the combination of cold and damp outside with the heat and dryness inside can cause skin issues for many individuals. Winter brings it’s fair share of skin ailments such as dry skin, chapped lips, scaly skin and many forms of irritation and itchiness. If you suffer from dry and dehydrated facial skin, you can…

This is the End … of Acne!

You know in the movie “This is the End”, with James Franco, Seth Rogen and Emma Watson, where the earth splits open and you can see the fiery pits of hell. Well if I was standing over it the first thing I’d throw in is Roaccutane. These last few months have been horrible even though there is a happy ending at the end of this story.

I’m doing this update to show you the progress (or lack thereof) and just talk about what I have experienced in the last 30 days. If you would like to see my skin in it’s initial stages when I started on the course, you can read my previous post here. I mentioned previously that I had not done much research when I began taking Roaccutane because I had heard such horror stories about how you can feel moody, depressed and even suicidal.

Zit zapping tips for awful breakouts

Hiya bellas, With the holiday season hastening upon us, not only do we want the hot and sexy summer body, but also the perfect skin. As I mentioned in a recent post here, I’ve been struggling with awful breakouts and started a course of Roaccutane to control it. The first week I used only the cleanser and moisturiser prescribed by the doctor. One of the side affects though is that the breakouts flare up before it starts to get better. This might not apply to everyone but I’ve never had worse pimples EVER in my life. It’s now 20 days…
