    My chin looks like a dot-to-dot puzzle!

    I think it's either down to my body de-toxing and it'll be lovely and clear soon, or as I rather suspect - I can't make do with clean and clear instead of my usual Clinique!

    I need a job asap - my skin needs expensive products!

    Actually, i have quite a few spots at the moment, but it is * week so i think that's the reason. Not sure it's to do with the plan cos i always get them when its TOM. But your right, could be your body de-toxing. I use freederm, it's good stuff :) x

    I've found that since started SW my skin is much better. Beforehand I hardly had any fruit/veg/salad or drank much water so I think this has helped a lot.

    Only time I seem to get spots now is around TOTM. So right now...I have one pesky spot on my chin which won't shift. It's like it's a little person on my face. Not good!!

    I had dreadful skin for the first couple of months, spotty and really dry. It's cleared up now though.

    I'm the opposite. I've not had any spots since i've started the diet. I've been really lucky with my skin.

    (now i've said that i'm going to look spotty when I wake up tomorrow!!!)

    One of the things that's really unfair is when you get to a certain age (ie mine!) and you have spots and wrinkles - how unfair is that???:mad:

    I did get spots at the start of my journey which I think was down to all the detoxing my body was going through after all the rubbish I had been eating. Since then I've had the odd pimple but in all honest I've never really suffered that badly with spots anyway. I'm sure yours will clear up soon too xxx

    Similar to Alia, I got a load of spots when I first started, I think like she says, it was de-toxing all the crap out. My skin's really clear now.

    spots are such a pain - im 31 and always have a cracking zit in random places on my face!!!

    I found one on my back this morning :( rolled the spot stuff on it and hope it goes away!!! lol!

    Try to exfoliate as a trick - dead skins cells are not always took off with wipes/cleansing and toning etc - so an exfoliation scrub is always good to do once a week.

    I've been lucky too, skin went a bit dry and spotty at first, but really clear now... might just be Clarins Beauty Flash Balm though...! xx

    no worries - use a deep exfoliating one - there are loads on the market, use one that suggest a weekly use....these would be the most abrasive ones.
