Since switching to a dimethicone & silicone free formulation in Laura Mercier's Oil-Free Foundation, my skin has pretty much cleared up, just purging residual clogged pores. This is one of those moments where I wish I knew what I know now ages ago. *sighs*
I've also been using Derm10's Vitamin C Complex which has, I believed, gradually given my skin an added clarity and glow. When I don't use it at least three times a week, I find my skin grows dull - I just wish it wasn't so costly to replace, it's already half gone! I've also been trialling their Comodone Complex with great results, but I'm waiting for an entire month before I post a review.
Finally, while this is hard to establish direct cause & effect, I've been taking Blackmore's Cod Liver Oil capsules for the past 2 months to help stabilise my hormones, control my oily skin, clear up my skin and promote skin healing. Well... unfortunately nothing has helped make my skin less oily, but I'm sure it's helped with my skin condition and even better, has increased my energy levels something insane - providing of course I don't screw up my sleeping hours too much for too long. Who knew that chronic fatigue on some days with absolutely no explanation for it could be hormonally linked? Cod Liver Oil is known to help control the androgen hormones (which is tied to oily skin and breakouts), so with this and Evening Primrose Oil taken regularly I've found my energy levels high and PMS darned near negligible.
Now if I could ONLY find something to help reduce my skin's oiliness I'd be in skin-heaven. Suggestions?
