I'm breaking out on my face and I can't make it stop. Suggestions for cleansers?
I used to not use a special cleanser on my face, and my skin was fine.. no blemishes.
Then I started using St. Ives apricot scrub for sensitive skin every day, and I got pimples, so I stopped, and my skin cleared up.
Then I started going to the gym every day and wearing a sweatband, and I broke out on my forehead, so I stopped wearing the sweatband and went back to using the St. Ives. I’m getting random pimples on my face… I guess on the chin area mostly but my forehead is still not doing so well. The St. Ives didn’t help.
The bottle says to use daily, my friends tell me not to use it daily… it made me break out, and then it didn’t help the breakouts I was getting from something else.
I have combo skin. My nose and my forehead are oily, and my eyes and cheeks tend to be dry. I’m also very fair and therefore have sensitive skin.
Can someone suggest a good cleanser? I don’t want to use an acne treatment specifically if I can help it; I find that my skin tends to actually become addicted to it so that when I stop, I break out worse than before.
