Is your life’s chaos, ruining your skincare routine? It’s September, and in the southern hemisphere, this means it’s spring time! This means it’s spring cleaning time – which can mean so much more than simply dusting out your home and decluttering your wardrobe. Why not spring clean your skincare routine?

Treat this time as a line in the sand, not unlike New Years. A resolution. A promise to yourself. Whether you’ve been on a clear skin journey for a while, or you are only newly resolving to take control and treat your acne now – take this time to consider what you’re currently doing.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when the weather gets warmer? The beach. Typically this is followed by dread at the thought of not having a body ready for the beach. Just as how you’d watch what you’re eating to trim your weight, you should consider watching what you eat to address your acne. I know that during the winter months I’ve grown accustomed to lots of morning coffees as I walk to work – eek! Sugar and milk! Take some time to browse the helpful blogs about your diet and acne to see if there are some foods you can be more mindful of with the change of season.

Now that you’re considering what foods and drinks you’re consuming, consider also what you should be regularly taking with food to help with your skincare…. your SkinB5 Acne Control Caplets! I personally use the SkinB5 Extra Strength Control Tablets, but the same rules apply. IF you’re anything like me, you probably miss the occasional tablet with a meal. What to do? Simple. Don’t freak out. The stress isn’t worth it, just take one with a snack, or with your next meal.

How do you ensure your consumption of SkinB5 is regular? Keep them EVERYWHERE:

  • Bedside table
  • Kitchen cupboard
  • At work (desk, locker, etc.)
  • Bag (handbag, backpack, man bag, etc.)
  • Your car
  • Wallet (I keep them in the change pocket)

I like to open up a bottle of SkinB5 Extra Strength Tablets upon receiving them in the mail (love online shopping) and dividing them between these places. I keep them in small food containers to keep them fresh. In the case of my wallet, I just like to use them within the next day or so – they’re great for if you’re out to brunch, lunch or dinner!

Remember that your skincare routine is more than just ensuring you’re eating the right foods and remembering your tablets. Ensure you’re cleansing regularly, I use SkinB5’s Acne Control Cleanser Mousse. Once a week I’ll also incorporate a face mask into my shower, it takes a little bit more time – but it’s worth it. You’ll feel notably fresher and your skin will be clearer for it.
