Omega 3 causes the oils in your skin to be more liquid so they don't clog up so easily but it's the ratio of 3 to 6 that matters not the total amount - this is why many people think fish oils don't work, because they are still eating masses of omega 6 in processed oils ( including those used to make cakes etc)
Her diet is not great to be honest. Eats very little fruit and veg. When she was younger she ate it all but as she got older not so much. She isnt a junk food eater, not a fan of sweets or chocolate but loves crisps and savoury snacks. I will persuade her to eat more fruit and veg, drink lots more water and maybe look into vitamins and see whats best for her. Thanks for your reply

Thankfully she is not into make up just yet. If nothings works then I think I will arrange a doctors appointment and see what they say. Thanks for your reply

You can get it in lots of places.

Encouraging her to drink lots of water, that's probably your best bet. Avoid greasy stuff, but as you say above, she doesn't sound like she eats a lot of crap.

To be honest, it's just that age. Try and avoid covering with make up if possible. Skin needs to breathe.

I also use it too and my difficult 40 year old skin has also never been better!
Thank you for this. I dont have a lush in my local town, I think the nearest one to me is about 1 hour away in the city. Can I order online with lush?

I've been buying her freederm but boots also do a good tea tree and witch hazel medicated wipe. She's not spot free but her skin looks so much better already
Thats exactly my dds problem areas too. Her forehead is really bad and Sometimes it can look really sore and red. She said it can be very itchy sometimes but does not scratch incase it gets worse. Like your dd, she also gets really conscious about it, some of her friends have spots but nothing like my dds. Its such a tough age for them, she started her period back in August then starting secondary school in September so I think the stress of all that hasnt helped either.

Thanks for your reply

Thanks for your reply. I think drinking more water will help too. Luckily she not in to make up at the moment. I will also look into your recommendation, thanks.

My DD (12 next month) has been using it, its brilliant. They do a little starter kit-ideal for trying out the products.
Great, I will look into this. Thank you
