My Daily Skin Routine - for Acne-Prone Skin!

Because of being a teenager, (hello hormones!) I have always suffered with Acne prone skin. Having trail and errored so many products, which made my skin worse, I finally found the answer to all my problems. LUSH. Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics are absolutely amazing as they have so many products for all different types of skin being from dry to oily skin or combination - like me! while using only natural ingredients (which smell amazing too!). From using their products, my skin has got dramatically better within the last few months -woohoo! so to all you girls (or even guys!) out there who are suffering from the exact same problem as me, here is what I use on a daily basis...

This cleanser is incredible as it is soft, not to harsh and is really effective for all skin types but especially for people with oily skin. Even though it has an oily base to it, it is still great for oily skin as it removes dirt, grease and any impurities (It even acts as a great make up remover too!) it's great for everyday use as it leaves your skin smelling lovely whilst not stripping your skins natural defences. I use it twice a day, morning and evening.
On the pot it said 'Top tip for people with really problem skin use nothing but ultra bland for one month to bring skin back to balance' it definitely does what it says on the tin, try it and give it a go! Just simply apply a generous amount on to your face with clean hands and wipe off using a damp warm flannel or cotton wool pad. I personally use cotton wool pads as you can just easily dispose of them after use!
Natural ingredients: Rose water, Almond oil, Beeswax, Honey, Fresh Iris extract, Glycerine, Rose Absolute, Tincture of Benzoin.
Safe Synthetics: Propylparaben and Methylparaben


After I used the ultra bland cleanser only for one month, my skin definitely started to get back into balance. So I decided it was time to toner up and purchase one. At first I did not know what this toner would be like but it is so gentle and kind for those with really sensitive skin. Using aromatherapy lavender water it cherishes and hydrates your face without causing it to overreact. It doesn't just have to be used as a toner water either. With it being in a little spritz bottle, you can use it as frequently as you like - even on days out to use at a moments notice! I use this twice as day as well and directly apply it after I've used ultra bland facial cleanser. These two products really set me up for the day and before I go to sleep to leave my skin lovely and clean while smelling gorgeous too! To use either close your eyes tightly and spray onto your face to hydrate or onto a cotton wool pad to wipe away any dirt.
Natural ingredients: Lavender water, Rose water, Limonene and linalool.
Safe Synethics: Perfume, Methylparaben.
