Luckily I've never suffered from any major skin problems like acne but no one has flawless skin I still do have trouble spots (eg. black heads on my nose, dark circles) but I have learned to address those issues there is no cure but there is a routine to get rid of/minimize them.
My tips would be:

- Drink water, it really is the fuel your skin needs! the more the better. Also if you feel like your face is swollen (eg, swollen eyes) in the morning it's because your dehydrated - so drink water before you sleep to treat that problem.

- Moisturise morning + night (or once a day if you have oily skin), again, it's a must if you want fresh and glowing skin all the time.

- Have an effective day + night skin routine, everyone's skin is different so different products will work on different people, a good skin routine should have: cleanser > exfoliator > toner > moisturiser.

- For dark under eye circles (which is a very common problem) the best you can do is sleep well for at least 7 hours and have an effective eye cream used day and night!

- For blackheads, some people use those strips or just exfoliate but I like to use the black extractor tool to get rid of every single blackhead, it really works. I only have to do it once a week.

- Have a facial weekly, no need to waste money on spa facials, instead do it yourself at home. There are plenty of products sold that high end spas use like masks, blackhead extractor tools, facial steamers...etc. Read online/watch videos of how professionals do it to gain skill. It depends on what your problems are so develop a good facial routine for yourself and stick to it every week.

- Whatever you put in your body it'll show on the outside - So smoking will not do wonders for your skin, it'll cause more problems and increase early wrinkles. Make sure you are on a healthy diet. Get enough of each food group and exercise well!

- Mental health is very important as well, if you're stressed, depressed, etc it'll effect you physically and can take a toll on your skin (stress is the biggest cause for skin problems like acne) so be sure you to be aware of any mental problems that can be taken care of professionally if it is very serious.

That's all I have! Stay positive and I'm sure it'll show on the outside

honey is the best thing for skin. It helps to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays, supports the skin's ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin, leaving it feeling silky soft and supple.

Does anyone have any ideas for this! I have tiny little bumps under the skin that you can't really notice but they are all over my forehead and my chin and I can't get rid of them! They then turn into spots not all of them though! I've work out that the simple cleansers and moisturisers help my skin the best and ive just strated taking omega 3 but I just can't get rid of them! I've tried Clinique and benzoyl peroxide products but they don't help and exfoliation and honey doesn't seem to help either. If you have any product that would help that aren't expensive I would really really appreciate it!!! I drink 3 litres of water a day and I do eat pretty healthy.

I think I know what you are talking about, I've had the same problem for years (only on my forehead though).. Mine have kind of disappeared now though, thanks to my new routine. I cleanse with a gentle milk cleanser (Nuxe 3 roses), spray some water on it (Avene) and while it's damp from that, I massage my face with 2-3 drops of oil (Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate) and then use a moisturizer (a random pharmacy moisturizer). And I do a mask 1-2 times a week (I use REN ClearCalm 3). Also, sweating helps a lot for me so try to do some kind of activity that makes you sweat (jogging does it for me!).

Thank you for your help! I'll see if I can get those products in my country! I tried Chinese medicine when I was 18 which was taking tiny little black pills and then this liquid you put on your face and it cleared it completely within a month (suppose to continue for 6 months in total) but then it returned differently when I was nearly 21. It's incredibly annoying! I never get how models can have such beautiful skin when they wear so many different products! Lol good genes I guess!

Any type of oil really! Maybe the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse is cheaper?

I just came to say that I have kind of the same routine as Sill and my little invisible spots also disappeared! I think, if I understand well, that Sill doesn't use water on her face (right?), and that's what I do. I use Avène & Nuxe products and it's been working great Don't worry, Riskki, you'll get rid of those spots too!

Very harsh opinions concerning Avene. Unfair. If someone really suffers from allergies - their products are like the last help, since La Roche Posay started to put citric acid inside their products.

Thanks gwennaliann! I've bought Avene cilcafate anti bacterial repair cream for mornings, and avene triacneal for night and so far it's ok, no major difference either way! I'll try the nuxe! I'd never heard of any of these products before, so I'm glad I came to this thread! Haha
