I get a lot of mail from teenagers who suffer from the dreaded hormonal breakouts. Well I’m no teenager ladies and I’m sitting here right now with five giant spots on my chin. No fair! When I was a teenager I had great skin, then when I hit 22 all hell broke loose. Maybe it’s punishment for feeling chuffed about having clear skin. Damn karma.
Teenage skin can usually be managed. I do have to mention though that if you have very bad acne you should mention it to your GP. Otherwise, clear away dead skin cells by using a gentle scrub. For those of you who want to use a scrub but are afraid of making angry skin look… well, angrier here is an easy recipe that I have been trying out:
- 2 Tablespoons Ground Almonds (Almond Meal for US ladies)
- 1 Teaspoon of raw egg white
- 4 Drops of Pure Lemon Essential Oil
All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and apply to damp skin. Use rolling motions to stimulate circulation and remove dead skin cells that might otherwise block your pores. Rinse off using allergenic soap.
How do you take care of breakouts?
