Bad skin makes her look older

A 21-year-old student thinks her skin makes her look old.

I'm a 21-year-old student with skin which makes me look older than my age.

I have not used many products, as I'm not sure what to use. I always worry that the products will not suit my skin. I do use a moisturiser every morning, though.

I have whiteheads, blackheads, blemishes as well as unsightly pimple scars. I look old and dark. I don't know what to do!

Is there any way to have clear, flawless skin? - Arch

Oily skin is a result of overactive sebaceous glands, says Susan Khor, Origins education manager. Hence you get skin that is prone to clogged pores, blackheads, whiteheads and a breakout. This type of skin tends to look shiny but the complexion is often dull due to accumulation of dead skin cells.

You need special care that will minimise and control the oil internally, while giving comfort and protection externally.

Origins Zero Oil range is formulated with Saw Palmetto and mint to control over-productive sebaceous glands while reducing surface shine.

It unclogs and minimises the appearance of pores, and reduces breakout.

Start with Zero Oil Deep pore cleanser that will cleanse thoroughly and work deep to remove excess oil, make-up and impurities.

Follow that with Zero Oil Pore purifying toner that will thoroughly remove excess oil, preparing the skin for the next product, which is Zero Oil Oil-free moisture lotion. This will immediately provide skin with the right amount of hydration.

The Zero Oil range is clinically proven to provide all-day oil control when used as a regimen.

Salicylic acid in the formulation helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, resulting in clearer, brighter-looking skin.

You are encouraged to use Modern Friction nature's gentle dermabrasion and Clear Improvement mask weekly to further unclog and detoxify skin.

Using the Zero Oil range as a daily regimen will effectively leave your skin feeling refreshed and soon you will see an overall improvement in the condition of your skin.
