The importance of a regular skincare routine isn't something to underestimate. Looking after our skin daily is the best way to ensure our skin looks and feels it's best - throughout those up and down teenage years, past our twenties, through our thirties and on it's way to ageing gracefully from our 40s and beyond.
But here's the thing - when it comes to breakouts, nothing is a guarantee - we can never say never - whether it be a monthly appearance (cos we all know good things happen monthly), once in a blue moon, or for some of us, a weeky occurence; we will face pimples and breakouts. There is no magic pill to prevent them.
My tip for breakout management is to first figure out your go-to face wash; the one you can use daily to mostly keep your breakouts in check. Then you need a spot treatment on hand, so when Mount Vesuvius erupts, you can zap it right away!
We're putting two products from the New Zealand brand Manuka Vantage to the test.
New Zealand Manuka Oil Face Wash with Aloe Vera and Manuka Honey.
This face wash contains the combined action of anti-inflammatory Manuka Oil and the antibacterial properties of premium certified Manuka Honey that assists in improving problem skin. This gentle wash unclogs blocked pores caused by the everyday environment and helps to remove bacteria
New Zealand Manuka Oil Blemish Gel with Rosehip and Manuka Honey.
This treatment gel contains the combined action of anti-inflammatory Manuka Oil and the antibacterial properties of premium certified Manuka Honey, that assist in keeping the skin clear and blemish free. This acne treatment gel penetrates deep into the pores to absorb excess oils and actively eliminates bacteria,the cause of acne and blemishes.
If you fancy a spot on this multi-product trial team why not tell us your thoughts on skincare routines and those dreaded breakouts.
We're opening this trial team up to our teenagers too - so if you have a teen in your household who would be up for using a couple of new products; you can put your hand up for them. You'll be responsible for placing their reviews (3 in total) and making sure they thoroughly trial the products.
