Blogging from A-Z: Z is for Zits

Z is for:


So we’re at the end of the A-Z challenge and it’s been great. For my last post in the series I’ve not been able to come up with anything remarkably creative (unlike my Crafty Little Blogger friend) so I’ll just go with a small annoyance I often have to deal with.

Since my teenage years I’ve had spots like most people, they’ve not been particularly bad but just a regular pain in the butt just when you don’t want them to be there. Their occurrence did tail off a bit in my twenties, but after having the children and not really giving a crap about my skin, or barely getting the chance to look in the mirror of a morning, they have made a bit of a comeback.

I keep promising myself that I will start a good skincare routine and this will be quite important leading up to our wedding – nobody wants to see a bride who looks like she’s rubbed the chip paper on her face eh??

So yes, this is a short post but it’s to ask for advice – can you recommend me a skincare routine that I can fit into about five minutes that will banish my zits and leave me a fresh-faced bride? I have considered chemical peel, but I don’t think that’s really for me!

  1. I’ve read that Tea Tree Oil works. So you could dab a little on at night after cleansing and moisturizing your face. OR, you could get Tea Tree facial care products that may help. There are lots of companies that make Tea Tree Cleansers, Moisturizers, Toners and even facial masks with Tea Tree in them.

    Oatmeal is also another thing that could help. You could make your own facial paste or mask using natural Oatmeal and milk or honey, etc.

    Some of the facial products sold at Loccitane seem pretty great as well. I’ve known some people to also swear by Neutrogena, but that stuff does not work for me and in fact, makes things worse, so I guess their skin care line is not appropriate for me. When I was younger, Clean & Clear products and Noxzema helped a lot.


    A chemical peel? Are you serious? Have you ever watched the “Sex and the City” TV show? There was a woman who came into a store where I worked a while back who looked worse than Samantha on Sex and the City. The lady looked like a grapefruit. Then again, maybe they work great for the skin once everything gets back to normal in a few hours or a few days….so I guess it depends on when you get it, like, you may want to plan it far out in advance so that the skin will have some time to rejuvenate.

    I hope you can find something that you like and wish you well in your skincare process 🙂

    Zits are bloody awful. Mine were so dreadful that an acquaintance actually said to me ‘I hope you don’t mind me saying but…’ and proceeded to tell me about her zit problem, also post child, for years. Having tried all the ‘more water, less chocolate, spend a fortune on lotions and potions’ stuff I was keen to hear her answer. It is medical unfortunately, but now I take oxytetracycline tablets each day, and they are nothing short of miraculous. I no longer look (or therefore have the mood swings of) a 13 year old. Yay!
