I have had 'naughty' skin since my mid teens. By that I mean acne prone on my face but it has gone in waves and has in the past been very responsive to treatment prescribed by doctors. However, as soon as I got stressed and finished a course of antibiotics/topicals the problem would slowly return. During the 'bad' skin periods I would get very low, trying everything to fix it even though those close to me tried to tell me it was not that bad. All I know is that it was bad enough to really effect me. Earlier this year at 30 years of age and four months before I was due to get married, I was spending far too much time putting make up on in the morning to cover up not only the active spots but the reddish marks left behind. It was actually my now husband who suggested I go see a dermatologist so as to find a proper and long lasting solution that was tailored to me. This is exactly what Sam has done. She listened to me talk about my skin issues, took a proper look at my face and set about forming a plan of action around a few paired back products. Sam also listed non comedogenic make up products that would work for my skin which was a godsend. It really helps to have someone who takes the guesswork out of choosing quality cosmetics and can analyse the ingredients! The key to the regime is to be patient and to trust Sam and her advice - it will work. My skin five months later is flawless, I actually glow and did my own wedding make up which I was so happy with. With Sam's guidance I am about to embark on my maintenance programme to completely fade any leftover red marks. Invest in your skin and you will never regret it. Oh and my morning/evening skin and make up routine is so much quicker now, more time to go out and enjoy life!
