Make-up artist reveals 25 product that cured her severe acne within weeks
“No one ever said that to me, but I was sure that was what they were thinking.
“The terrible thing was there was nothing I could do about it.”
On a long waiting list to see a dermatologist and refusing to take the strong acne drug Roaccutane, which slows down the amount of oil your skin releases but according to the NHS can also have a serious side effect of depression, Alice felt helpless.
“I knew I had to do something. I was desperate and felt horrendous about myself,” she said.
“I didn’t want to go out and dreaded events like the work Christmas party or my graduation, as I didn’t want people looking at me.
“I hated looking in the mirror and didn’t recognise the girl looking back at me, I felt disgusting.”
So, in May this year, Alice decided to take the issue into her own hands.
