My skin hates me. It makes no sense because I’m now living in Australia and therefore my skin sees the sun and I’m washing my face in clean, non-hard water. Surely I should have been having these issues while living in London!

Since about two weeks before we left London (around March) to now (end of May) I have had a break out around my nose and chin of a red spotting. Sometimes it looks like acne, other times it’s dry and itchy like a rash. For the life of me I can not get rid of it.

I don’t know if it’s diet driven (some have suggested it’s stress) or hormonal (but I’ve never experienced anything this bad previously – especially for it to be hanging around so long) or if it’s something more…

I have had to can my Korean skincare regime thinking I was maybe allergic to one of the products in my 10 steps. I have also tried a hydrocortisone cream, but that only cleared the surface and I’m reluctant to use it long term. I am now on reduced skincare and make up simply using jojoba oil to wash and moisturise my skin, and a light Natio tinted moisturiser as my daily make up. How long do I have to wait before I see a difference? I’m a woman of minimal patience. It should be fixed now.

Has anyone experienced anything similar? What remedies helped your skin?
