Hello everyone. I am 20 years old, and haven't had problem skin for about a year now. I got put on birth control and found out I was allergic to gluten and dairy, and ever since then my skin has been perfectly clear. However, a couple weeks ago I woke up with tiny red bumps all over my forehead (I think they're papules). They're really only noticeable when you look really close or touch my forehead. I also noticed that the sides of my nose are bumpy as well, but those bumps aren't visible at all. And today I woke up with two big pustules on the left side of my chin! I have not changed anything in my diet and I exercise regularly. I also wash my face twice a day with Cetaphil, sometimes using my Clairsonic, and I exfoliate once or twice a week with Aveeno. In the morning I apply Aveeno clear complexion lotion, and at night I apply a multivitamin night cream. For makeup, I only use an organic powder from Faerie Organic, and I wash and replace my makeup brushes regularly. Any ideas to why I might be breaking out?!? Thank you!

if they are red then they 'are' visible.
if not,then they are likely closed comedones.
i suggest u change to a low% bha wash.which is a chemical exfoliator so u wouldn't need a scrub as such.
also,moisturise only when needed.
piling on creams etc clogs pores sometimes.
whats ur diet,lifestyle like?
oils used for cooking
inflamed whiteheads & clogged pores
my balanced diet chart and skincare routine(medications taken & products used now)
