Clinical Skincare: Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch Review

Posted in Products, Reviews
on September 24, 2017

I first heard about the Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patches on the episode of Sali Hughes’ in the bathroom series with Ruth Crilly. Ruth briefly mentioned that they’d worked for her, whereas Sali said she hadn’t really had any success with them. Experimental (translation: desperate) as I am, I thought I’d give them a go and quickly ordered some from Amazon.

If you’ve never seen them, they’re basically stickers that you put over a spot to try and get rid of it. I’ve been using these for about a year now, and I can tell you that they work consistently.

Inevitably, though, we feel a lot of pressure to stay looking younger for as long as we can. I could talk A LOT about why this is utter nonsense. But maybe another time. For now, I want to talk about the trend of twenty-somethings becoming concerned and are taking action to prevent visible signs of aging.

If you are worried about visibly aging, then your 20s might actually be a good time to start doing something about it. Prevention is always better than cure, though I don’t particularly like those words in this context.

Dairy Free Diary Part 3: What Happened to My Skin?

on August 27, 2017

In part 1 of this series (read here), I told you I was reducing my dairy intake because I was hoping it would help clear up my skin. In part 2 (read here), I talked about some of the things I ate during the two weeks, and how I kind of struggled for ideas, and I wasn’t happy that I was getting the right nutrition for me.

Now for the crucial bit – the results! Was there any benefit to me giving up my beloved cheese for two weeks?
