I’m talking stubbon outbreaks that don’t seem to want to budge, regardless of how much I try to take care of my skin.
It just doesn’t seem fair, I’m a good girl, I always take my make-up off at night and do the whole cleanse tone and moisturise thing. Yet still I suffer from frequent stubbon outbreaks.
Logic had me thinking that the cause of this was a build up from contouring products, particurlly powders. So I stopped using them to see if this would help. As you can see there has been no change, this is not the cause. (Phew coz I like contouring!)
My diet isn’t to bad so I knew it couldn’t be that, though I have halved my caffeine intake just to see if it’s that. So far though it’s too early to tell.
Today though, after reading an email from glossybox I feel I have had a bit of a light bulb moment.
This talked about skin mapping and some causes for spots in different areas of the face. One area stood out to me in particular, my outbreaks form in what they called the technological line.
Basically my IPhone is a huge bacteria invested spot creating machine. Yuck!
Apparently it could have more bacteria than the flush handle in the Mens toilets Whaaaaat!!!!! That’s just gross. It makes so much sense them that this could be the cause of that cluster of spots I get along my cheek.
Oh and those spots on my jawline, my computer keyboard could be the cause. Yes off course, why didn’t I think of that before? It’s well known that our desks are another bacteria infested hell hole. If like me you are someone that rests their jaw in the palm of their hand when concentrating this makes sense then that bacteria is being transfered to your face.
So I now have a plan, as I need to test this theory out. My IPhone and keypad is going to get a daily clean with antibacterial wipes in the hope that I can reduce the levels of spot causing bacteria. Secondly everytime I lean on my hands I’m going to have to slap myself or something, I need to stop doing it.
If these little changes make a difference, then yay!! I may have found the key to clearing up my skin problems.
I shall give you an update in a couple of weeks to see how I get on.
