I have never had perfect skin. I have very oily skin that is hard to maintain and some dark areas on my cheek, but most of the time, my breakouts are confined to “that time of the month”. This week however, I am noticing that I am breaking out more and more, especially around my chin area and I am not even close to that time of the month.
What’s a girl to do?
I haven’t changed my skin care routine. To remove my make-up, I use Ponds. I have been using Ponds Cold Cream for years and it seems to do the trick of removing the grime. In terms of cleansing, I use Mary Kay classic skin care line (don’t laugh–it WAS working at one point and keeps my oily skin controlled) and I do their Clarifying Skin Mask twice a week. I use a fresh towel each time i dry my face and I use a facial brush in order to cleanse. Before bed, I also apply a Dermalogica blemish gel that is for nighttime use. I’ve been sticking to this regimen, and for the most part other than PMS breakouts, my skin is okay. Not perfect, but okay. Certainly not embarrassing.
But now I am seeing breakouts in places I never had them before. I am puzzled and confused. I was thinking about going to the Dermatologist to see if I could get a prescription to clear up my skin. Or maybe what I need is a good facial, its been months since I have had one! I’m 34 years old and I thought I would be over my breakout woes by now!
I am appealing to all of the dynamic divas and beauty experts out there for help. I am also posting pics below so you can see the exact products I have been using and also see the problems I am having with my skin. Thanks in advance for your help and guidance!
