Q&A: My skin is giving me cold feet, and my wedding is only 2 months away. Can you help?

question for batty

Hi there,

I’m in desperate need of some advice and assistance when it comes to my skin. I have very pale, very sensitive skin and have tried every kind of skin care under the sun. I am now 21, and am getting married in two months and am at a loss as to how i am ever going to clear it up, and feel good about it. It is dry in places, I have small bumps all over, blackheads, and my chin gets attacked by some kind of pimple weekly. I don’t have chronic acne, but it is very sensitive, and I have no clue how to clear it up. I am hoping that maybe something in your line would be able to help me out !

Thank you for your time!

Hi there:

Thanks for your email and congrats on your engagement!

Yup, I definitely have products that can help!

detox kitIf you’re not using natural products right now (or you use makeup that isn’t natural), I highly suggest you do the detox kit for a month and add on the quick stick for acne spot treatment. Plus the hydration mist (under your moisturizer) to help clear up the dry spots. However, if the dry spots need even more TLC, go with the hydra healing gel under your moisturizer and/or the hydration serum at night. The detox kit will help address the blackheads and bumps (especially if you follow the bye bye blackheads plan a few days a week which can be found here – (The detox kit comes with both the products in the bye bye blackheads routine so you wouldn’t have to buy the bye bye blackheads power pack if you got the detox kit). You may also want to check out this Q&A from a customer who might have similar skin to yours.

I should also mention that all of my products are made with sensitive skin in mind and are gentle and mild. However, if you’re looking for my most gentle products in the line up (the ones that are made for super reactive skin), check out the rosacea row in the product guide for a list of products + the option to build a daily+weekly facial routine.

As far as the breakouts you mentioned on your chin, they are almost always caused by a combo of bacteria, hormones, and the digestive system not working optimally (even if you don’t have any obvious symptoms of your digestive system not working at this full potential). Here’s a few links to resources I’ve made that will help you with each of the causes I just mentioned:

Bacteria
Hormones (also see the skin support tea and serum product pages in the online shop)
Digestion (particularly the tips in the bottom section of my answer)
•Plus check out: vitamin deficiency + your skin (supplementing with zinc could really help you!), and symptoms of internal causes (how to pin point what’s causing the symptoms)

I would strongly recommend working the skin support serum into your routine, as it will tackle bacteria and help support your body’s natural ability to level out hormones (which I suspect is a key cause of your chin breakouts). Since you mentioned dry spots (and super sensitive skin), you’ll need to keep a close eye on using the skin support serum on your face. It can be drying if it’s used too frequently or not followed up with a mist, serum, and/or moisturizer… and for some people with rosacea, it’s not mild enough for them to use on their face. But the good news is, it will still give you the hormone balancing benefits if you apply it to another area of your body (there’s more info on this on the skin support serum product page).

Skin Support TeaAnother strong suggestion I would make (re: chin breakouts) is adding the skin support tea to your routine (drink 2 or more cups a day if you can), because the tea will also help address internal causes (re: digestion, etc). There’s a breakdown of the benefits of each ingredient in the tea on the skin support tea product page.

If you’d like to zero in further or review all the products that target specific concerns (as well as a build-it-yourself facial routine tool), check out the product guide & facial routine builder here. There’s tips there, plus my whole line laid out in a way that shows what products help with which concerns and what elements are needed for a balanced facial routine.

If you get started narrowing down what products you think your skin needs and you get stuck, just let me know and I’ll just my best to help you build a balanced, helpful, and healing routine.

Thanks again for your email and have a great week!
