ZM Days' announcer Georgia Burt has opened up on air about her acne struggles, and with the help of a few listeners has managed to get some tips for others in the same boat. 

Talking about having to cover a pimple with a plaster when she was younger (it wasn't fooling anyone) Georgia goes on to talk about the expensive remedies her parents had bought.

Since opening up the text line, a few awesome suggestions and stories have come through, so we've noted them down so anyone who needs them can take a look!

  • Solarcare B3 Cream
  • Atopis Cream (NZ Made)
  • Bees Wax (melt down and add 10 drops of tea tree oil and arnica oil)
  • Niacinamide Serum
  • Exposed Skincare acne treatment

Thanks to those that sent Georgia a text too, some of these messages are below. 

"I had acne from the age of 12-20. Tried all types of acne medication nothing worked. Tried mums Clarins anti ageing double serum and all my acne went plus it got rid of all my scaring. If I don't use it or run out for a couple days I break out immediately"
"Hey! So I struggle with acne as well, it got really bad after high school and it has been one of my biggest battles in life in terms of confidence and self-esteem and yeah just in general life.. It bloody sucks aye! I feel you!! But I've got it to a point where it's manageable - never perfect but that's okay, that's an unrealistic standard to put on yourself!! I have found a skincare routine that works for me (I went to the dermatologist, that helped a lot) and vitamins!!! I take vitamin C and vitamin B5, I feel like that has helped keep my acne at bay a wee bit more. But yeah you're not alone dw, last year it got so bad I couldn't leave my room because I hated myself and my acne so much! Just got to remember to practise self-love too!!! ❤️"
"I've struggled with acne since I was 20. At 41 i have finally got rid of it after taking a prebiotic called Gut Food from grasses of life."
