We all have our hang-ups and insecurities, the parts of ourselves we don’t like, and it’s very normal to feel this way. Issues around skin are common- there are so many things that can go wrong and when it’s something you can’t really hide away it can cause a problem. However modern medicine and science is excellent, and if you have something you’re embarrassed about with your complexion chances are it can be changed. Here are some common skin conditions, and what you can do about them to improve your confidence.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
No one can stay looking youthful forever. While some people maintain good skin for far longer than others, eventually our complexion will show signs of age such as lines and wrinkles. If you’ve noticed the first signs of aging, having a treatment like Botox can be useful as not only does it make the skin look smoother but it also protects against further damage.

Keep out of the sun, wear SPF, remove your makeup before bed and use hydrating products morning and evening.
Having acne when you’re a teenager is frustrating enough. But when you’ve paid your dues yet your spotty complexion follows you into your twenties and beyond it can be incredibly overwhelming. While it’s common, acne is a complex issue and some types can be harder to treat than others. If your acne is mild, your first step could be to try a topical treatment containing benzoyl peroxide. More aggressive cases should be seen by your GP who will refer you to a dermatologist. It could be that a hormonal imbalance is to blame, and so all of the topical products in the world won’t help and it will just keep coming back until the cause is treated. Avoiding known acne trigger foods are also something to try, cow’s milk for example can lead to an increase in sebum production and also cause inflammation making breakouts worse. In the meantime, ditch heavy and oil based foundations and cover your acne with a natural mineral foundation instead. This won’t irritate sensitive skin, or blocked pores so is perfect for using on breakouts.
Rosacea is characterized episodes of flushing, where the skin turns red for a short period. However, you can also experience other symptoms as the condition progresses. Stinging sensations, spots, and visible blood vessels are all common. There’s no cure for the condition, but it can be managed, work you your triggers, so you know what to avoid. Spicy foods, stress, caffeine and alcohol are all things people can find cause flare ups, so a few lifestyle changes may be all that’s needed. Use a green based concealer under your foundation, this counteracts redness and balances the complexion, which can effectively hide your red flushes.
