Ever notice a pattern in the way your blemishes come out? Here are a few tips to see whether your current beauty regimes affect the way you develop acne and what changes you can do to minimise these breakouts!
Do you have...
Acne on your back (Bacne) or around your hairline?
Chances are, you are using a hair product that is too moisturising for your skin. Hair conditioners are usually the culprit, but some shampoos can also cause this. Opt for less moisturising shampoos. Sometimes I omit conditioner altogether!
Acne on your chin?

This is usually the site affected by hormones or stress, although they can crop up anywhere on the face. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables, get adequate sleep, drink plenty of water, take up relaxing techniques such as meditating and yoga, or simply wait until the cyclical hormones change over. 

Acne on your cheeks?

Sometimes this is a sign our pillows or bed covers need a change!
Dry cheeks are also at risk of getting blemishes. Make sure you moisturise well with an oil-free moisturiser.

Acne all over?

If you develop lots of acne all over, weight gain, irregular periods or notice an increase in overall hair growth (hirsutism), it might be worth seeing your doctor or gynaecologist to investigate for polycystic ovarian syndrome.
For all acne prevention measures, it is essential that you clean you Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise your skin to prevent clogging of pores and subsequent inflammation. Make sure to remove all makeup before bed. Avoid over-cleansing however as this can irritate or aggravate your skin causing angry breakouts.

Hope this helps! ♥

Acne Patterns

Dear everyone, after working on Princess Livia for so long, I've decided to make a change. When I initially chose the my blog name, I thought it would be a simple blog of my beauty ramblings, and not something I would carry with me as part of my career. 
Years down the line from blog creation, I graduated from Medical School as many of my long-time followers would know. I have always been interested in skin and my life is heading its way to the route of Dermatology - I will get there in the future!
So with the goal of making my blog look a bit more professional and to be taken more seriously, I have decided to leave 'Princess Livia' and replace it with 'The Skin and Beauty Blog'.
I will start talking about skin and skincare, which I have not touched on really. It's something I subconsciously avoided as I felt I was confined to talking about makeup. Of course, I will continue to talk about makeup and beauty which I always have done.
As I get time to update my blog, there will be many changes occurring in the next few weeks including blog URL changes etc.
Stay tuned. I would love to have you on the moving bandwagon!

Any thoughts? ♥
