Make-up artist reveals 25 product that cured her severe acne within weeks
“My acne was all over my face and was bright red and sore all the time.
“I like to show customers who are having issues with their skin, to make them see that they’re not alone and things do get better.”
Alice, who is single, was battling with cystic acne – the most severe form of the spotty skin condition, which occurs when oil and dead skin cells build up deep within hair follicles, causing a rash of infected boils.
Ironically, it was training for the job she loves so much that triggered her problems when, after leaving school, aged 18, she started studying make-up artistry at Edinburgh College – practising the looks she had been taught at home, using heavy make-up on her own face.
“I was practising at home at least three nights a week, applying really heavy make-up, so I could then take photos and post them on my social media, to show what I’d done,” she said.
