I started using raw honey masks and moisturizing with coconut oil a few days ago, and my skin is in really bad shape right now. My jawline is just covered in acne. And this is right after a previous breakout healed up completely. I started to notice irritation two days ago as my facial hair was growing out. Unfortunately, by the time I shaved last night, there were already numerous pustules in my beard. This resulted in possibly the most painful shave I've ever had to endure. I've simply never had to deal with that much acne during a shave before. This morning things looked even worse. The pustules spread and multiplied and I couldn't stop them no matter what I used.
So now my chin looks horrible. I've seriously never had this many acne spots at one time in my entire life, and I considered myself to have pretty much moved past acne by this point. I can't identify the culprit easily since I started using several new things at once, but I have a feeling it's the raw honey masks. I've heard that they can make your skin feel worse at first. I'm going to stick with my same regimen for the next couple of days and see if things calm down. If they don't then I'm going to just stop the honey and coconut oil and go back to my normal regimen.
Now I'm just trying to find a good spot treatment for acne. It's been a couple of years since I actually felt the need to use a product for acne, so I'm trying to figure out what my best options are. I'm trying tea tree oil, topical green tea, and clay masks at the moment.
