How I deal with my problem/hormonal skin

Hi guys! A problem I've been suffering from recently is hormonal skin and the amount of spots that come with it. I know how rubbish it can make me feel, so I'm assuming it's the same for you guys, and so I thought I'd share my current routine to rid my skin of the extra oil it's producing right now and how I try and stay on top of it. I obviously get the odd spot - nothing as bad as some people with terrible acne - but these tricks have been really good to me over the years!

These are all the products I use when my skin is terrible - and some of them I use all the time. It won't surprise you to see the first one is water! I feel like people assume water alone will just instantly clear your skin up and I've tried to show that isn't the case! I drink so much water - I'd say I drink about two litres worth a day and it really helps with your skin when used with other products. I picked a bottle of strawberry water as I tend to choose Volvic strawberry water as a treat from plain water, and also to show you that I don't think it makes a massive difference! 

First thing I do when I wake up is wash my face and when my skin is troubling me I use my Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel face wash. Witch Hazel and Tea Tree are known for their skin-clearing properties and this cleanser smells magical and awakens me instantly. I then use the toner from the same range and my Soap and Glory Speed Plump moisturiser. I also take one Vitamin E tablet a day, this protects skin from pollution etc. and helps to improve the overally condition of skin. 

After my day, I remove my makeup with my Soap and Glory 5 in 1 Magnetizing Micellar Makeup Remover and wash my face, usually with my Soap and Glory face wash which I reviewed here. If I exfoliate (which I do once a week) I use my Polaar Artic Cotton Face Scrub, moisturise with the same moisturiser as before and then I use my Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Night Treatment Gel over the top!

If I've exfoliated, I usually use a face mask (usually a moisturising tissue mask) before I apply my treatment gel but after my moistriser. This way my skin is extra hydrated as your body tends to produce more oil when it is not hydrated, which in turn produces more spots!

I have seen improvements in my hormonal skin and I hope these tips and tricks help some people out! Thanks for reading! Ashleigh♡xoxo 


  1. It's great that you have seen improvements in your skin! From my experience i know it can be tricky finding products that work for your skin, and to decide on a routine but once you have found products and a routine that work for you, it feels great! x
