I’ve recently been breaking out so much and I HATE IT! This happens to most of us though, especially in our teenage years.
For a while now, my immediate reaction when I first get one pimple, let alone a whole breakout, was to wash my face and oftenI give myself several facials in the span of a week. But instead of those little bumps going away, they seemed to be multiplying like bunny rabbits. Turns out, I was making a classic mistake. I was actually over washing my face and using products that were too harsh. The end result, I was stripping my skin of its essential oils causing more oil production which resulted in those little bumps turning into actual acne. It was so gross.
What I Needed to Do:
I should have been using a gentle cleanser and give my face time to breathe. I went to an esthetician at Blue Mercury for some much needed help. She suggested a face wash that was light and perfect to rebuild my skin. So now I’m using Soy Face Cleanser by Fresh. I have fallen in love with this face wash and fallen hard. First off, it smells so nice, like cucumbers. It helps to wake me up in the morning and relaxes me before I go to sleep. Also, a little goes a very long way with this one. I use less than a dime-sized amount on one hand, then get my face wet and lather. It’s important to use gentle, circular motions for a few minutes and then wash it off and pat dry your face with a clean cloth. It is so refreshing and light and it doesn’t irritate my skin.
Now that I know what I was doing wrong, hopefully those irritating little bumps will disappear. Like previously stated, I LOVE this product! It and Blue Mercury has been eLEXYfyd!
