Do you always get pimples on your chin? Or maybe acne always seems to crop up on your cheeks and your t-zone? Your breakouts might be trying to tell you something!
If we asked you “Have you ever kept a skin diary?”, I’m sure we’d be met with oodles of puzzled faces staring back at screens all over Australia (and the world!).
Yes, it does sound a little bizarre at first, but it can be SUPER helpful, especially if you’ve got problem skin.

So it's Saturday afternoon, I'm sitting at the Happy Shed all on my own. It's farrreeeezing. Aaron is at home with the boys and I'm rugged up, typing as quickly as I can so my fingers don't freeze. But then inspiration strikes... I need some of my elixir... No, not a bottle of rum. I need my turmeric latte.
