For those of you that follow my blog regularly you will be aware my skin struggles. It’s been about 5 weeks since my previous post and I promised I would keep you all updated on my progress so here I am.
Firstly I would just like to say thank you for all the kind messages and comments it was quite hard for me to open up about such a sensitive issue but I had such a fantastic response. If you didn’t catch the first part of my story you can read it here:
I can’t believe I am actually saying this but I believe finally I am starting to make progress! It’s been a very long road but I’m finally starting to see results. Cue smiley face! 😊
To recap in my last post I had just started to use Skinoren Azelaic Acid along with Erythromycin oral antibiotics. Since then I have been put on repeat prescription for the Erythromycin and am taking 1 tablet twice a day and I apply the Skinoren cream morning and night.
At first I didn’t think much to this and it’s very very slow progress however I would say that this has helped with inflamed acne. I don’t get as many big spots as I used to but my main concern was the congestion underneath my skin and I really don’t think it’s works for that.It also gives me ridiculous hunger pangs all the time which is really annoying!
Skinoren Azelaic Acid 20%
So this stuff works but it’s not a quick fix! Again it’s a very slow process but you can see from my photo it did reduce the congestion under my skin. Not completely but I think over time the effectiveness will increase. Which is really not what you want to hear when you have bad skin you just want it gone!
MD Formulations Anti Blemish Solutions Kit
This stuff trumps both of the above! I’ve been using this set for about a week and I literally feel like my spots are melting away. My pores are tighter, my skin is less oily and the texture of my skin has improved massively.
The kit consists of a facial gel wash,a toning lotion, clearing gel, moisturiser, eye cream and sun protector and it works wonders. I was highly recommended these products by a friend and was able to purchase online from Feelunique.com. I am so impressed with the results even after a weeks use and will be posting a full review of the set in the coming weeks.

It seems like things may be looking up for my skin and I’m hoping it stays that way! I will keep you updated with my progress and hope that this post helps anyone else that may suffer with problem skin.
