Figured I might wash my face too much.

 

I basically wash my face in the morning with just water and at night with cleanser to apply moisturizer but I also shower in between so that makes it 3 times per day.

 

Too much?

I wash my face with cleanser (Eucerin Dermo Purifyer as recommended by my derm) morning and night but if I work out at the gym I wash it again in the shower.  So that makes three times.  I think twice is recommended though.

Twice is enough. But shower water can be hard on your face if you don't have a filter. If you notice that the water you use is drying out your skin or causing redness, you may want to invest in a water filter. 


Supplements: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate [sometimes]. 

Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
