I’m not joking when I say @drroebucks is the best brand I’ve tried in a WHILE! Thank you for sending me these lovely gifts at work! Definitely will be adding to my column in the paper! The hydrating mist smells like coconuts, cools you down, and gives you a dewy glow. Deffo carrying it with me wherever I go! It’s UNREAL. And omg the second star here is the hydrating serum. My skin has never felt or looked better! It’s not shiny but I am soooo hydrated and my skin feels really supple. I don’t even want to put makeup on!!!! The eye cream has also reduced some darkness under my eyes and given me a nice base for concealer and eye makeup, gorgeous. I reckon I’ll need to keep going for a week before I see a difference. But I definitely recommend this Australian brand to cheat that Aussie glow. And the packaging is sooo cute, I love the messages inside, 5 stars! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #drroebucks#acne#acnesufferer#acnedefeat#acneprogress#skincare#skincareroutine#australia#australianbeauty#britishbeautyblogger#beautybloggers

It may seem simple, but have you actually sat back and asked yourself ➡️➡️ “AM I REALLY THE ONE MAKING MY LIFE’S DECISIONS??”🤷🏼♀️
-Are you letting FEAR rule your life?👹

-Are you letting WHAT THE WORLD TAUGHT YOU decide how you go about your day?🌏📺🚶♀️🚶♂️
For me, this revelation has changed the way I treat people when no one wants to treat them right🙅🏼♀️🙏🏻 👩❤️👩It’s changed the things I eat when I grew up learning the standard American diet 🍕🍔➡️🍉🥒It changed the way I think about my job and not going after the normal 9-5 workday 👔➡️👩🏼🌾👩🏼🏫

💙Say goodbye to your ACNE after visiting the team @proformaesthetic ! Whether you’re 47 or 17, male or female, whether your breakouts are once a month or multiple times a week, the reason they come back and back is frustratingly simple: Human error. The minute a breakout clears, suddenly, you’re a person with clear skin—one who no longer needs to be quite so vigilant with their skincare routine. But the only way to keep skin blemish-free on any sort of long-term basis is to constantly treat it as an active, broken-out complexion. The right products make a serious difference, but the key is major, unwavering consistency. 💙 Contact us today at Proform Aesthetic Clinic to let us Clear your ACNE TODAY ! 📞☎️ #acnetreatment#acneclearing#acneprogress
Last week or so of ma face being documented, quite a change since our last day in Dubrovnik. My lip, which started bleeding mid instagram story rant is completely healed with no intervention of moisturizer 🧐 and I didn’t even notice till putting these progress shots together if I’m honest. Texture is non existent apart from pimples drying out naturally. Last week I got in the sea to let the salt water do some natural exfoliating, even if it doesn’t do much for my face it just felt great to get in the sea after spending pretty much every day in Croatia swimming.
TIME & PATIENCE:
It's good to remind yourself that its not a quick and easy thing to find out what triggers your acne and what works to heal your skin!
The first pic was at the start of this year when I had cut out dairy and soy from my diet and was using benzoyl peroxide every other day or so. My skin was the BEST it had been in like a year! 😊
The second pic was after about 3 months of changing to a vegan diet... 🌿 I absolutely loved being vegan and started to get quite passionate about living a greener life 🌍
But it really took its toll on my skin and subsequently my mental state! I was getting down again and hating when I had to get ready for bed - looking in the mirror to take my make up off was not fun... So I switched back to what worked for me previously....
And today is what my skin is like in the 3rd pic. If not better!
Some things will work for you and others won't. You've just got to keep positive and find out for yourself what can help 👍 That's obviously easier said than done but I do think its possible!
Quick update on the dermatitis front. 〰️
Been taking a photo everyday for the last week of my face, so I can see at the end of the three month course of antibiotics the difference and hopefully improvement. But I am already seeing and, actually feeling a difference in my most affected areas. Also, remember, I’m not using any products on my face literally just hot and cold water. Apart from feeling slightly dryer after a shower I surprisingly haven’t felt out of whack not using products. I’ve been moisturizing the rest of my body as normal up to my neck with my usuals and aftersun.
Inquiring minds want to know...I have made leaps and bounds with my skin in the last year. If you didn't know this, I had HORRIBLE systic acne from the time I was around 11 years old up until last year! Here are a few progress pics...now at 30 years old, my skin is still far from perfect, but I'm trying to age like fine wine. 💁♀️😂 If you zoom in on my current pic, you can see that I still have some spots on my cheeks and I definitely struggle with scarring texture (mostly on the right side of my face). I always wear sunscreen on my face to protect it when I'm outside (you can tell how much lighter my bare face is than my body) but I am SO AMAZED by the difference I have seen in a year. I cut out most dairy (i still love cheese and butter but they are not a DAILY part of my life anymore and I don't drink any dairy milk anymore, only almond milk). And I eat healthier, drink TONS more water, and I use the Acne.org regimen. NO, I DO NOT SELL THIS NOR DO THEY SPONSOR ME. I'm just your average joe, sharing what has worked for me. And I just want to say it is SO inexpensive ($45 for cleanser,gel treatment, and moisturizer) compared to the oh so many products I have tried in the last almost 20 years of struggle skin! So there you go, reminders of how far I have come! 😁😘 #Acne .Org #Journey#Progress#HealthySkin#HealthyLiving#HealthyEating#DrinkWater#EatHealthy#ClearSkin#Acne#SkinStruggles#AcneProgress#Breakout#BeforeAndAfter#LoveYourself#BeTransparent#ThisIsMe#AcneTreatment#NotASalesPerson#HappyCustomer#BareFace#Selfie#NoFilter#NoMakeup#Clean
Super unrefined, or “for the aesthetic” here, but I wanted to show these photos side by side. The first one, when I got in after the day at Longitude, had cleansed and moisturized. The other, from during the day wearing just some concealer mixed with moisturizer taken in a dark space. 🌸
I felt conscious of my skin throughout the course of the day, and found myself falling into the old habit of apologizing for wearing no makeup cause of my skin when speaking to people I hadn’t seen in ages. Annoying my friends asking for an update on the ‘hack’ of my skin as the day went on. But I also had moments where I was really carefree and didn’t even think about it. 🌸
What’s interesting to me is that I’ve two very different photos here, although my skin looked as red during the day as it did at the end. The portrayal I could give you via good lighting and angles is that my skin is fine and just has texture when in reality it’s red, highly texturized and dry. I’m currently boarding the plane heading on my holibops and won’t be wearing makeup. I’d be lying if I said I’m not anxious about going out with the girls and my skin looking like this. Cause I am. They’ll all be glowy and dewy and I ,well, won’t. But as I said numerous times on my insta stories yesterday, Im just gonna get on with it and enjoy my time away ✈️
just finished month 2 of Accutane!
I'm loving how my skin is clearing up and I even went out to dinner without any makeup on!
my side effects are basically the same as the first month; general achiness, tiredness, dry lips.
thanks everyone for all your support ❤️
learning the fine line between not forcing myself into any stipulations yet pushing myself to follow through with tasks that are immensely healing for my body. in spite of that i am being intuitively pulled towards doing a watermelon island. 🍉 i’ve been waiting all watermelon season for the “right time” just to notice that thought pattern was solely rooted in fear. fear of the unknown. the unfamiliarity. detox makes me feel so vulnerable and bare. cleanses will dig up stagnant energy sourced from suppressed emotional trauma and habitual growth inhibiting perceptions. in order to release that old energy, it must come to the surface first. you must feel everything all over again to fully acknowledge what is and let go. to re-feel everything again is what scares me. however why continue to suppress? detoxification is for renewal. shedding layers in order to create a clear vessel for your spirit to work through.
CHANGING SKIN / this week we've focussed on change, and the steps we will take along our journey to healthy skin. It wouldn't be a Friday without posting some #skinspo pics, so we thougth we'd share a perfect example of the BIG differences that small changes and committment can achieve. >> swipe to see before >>
Read his story 👇🏼 👇🏼 👇🏼
This 19 yr old male client initially came to us 2 years ago. He had some treatment and a naturopathic consultation, but he was not in the right 'head space' at the time and did not continue his protocol. Fast forward to late 2017 when he came back to our Clinic for help, this time fully committed and eager to start his skin journey. A protocol of Acnelan Peels, dietary changes, naturopathic medicines and his dedication to the program have all helped him acheive clear skin in record time. He says "I am so happy with my skin, it's totally worth the money and effort". Superstar client! 🙌🏼
