So, I've always had pretty oily skin, but now b/c of coutless face washes, treatments, creams, etc. my skin is now also very dehydrated (I know oily AND dry, just great - __ - ). My acne is fairly mild, but very persisent. I have blackheads on my nose, and blackheads/closed comedones on my forehead and nothing I have tried has been successful in fully eradicating them.
Now, my major problem is b/c my skin has become dehydrated, treatments that used to work as short-term solutions for break-outs just severely dry out my skin.
I've tried just using hyrdating moisturizers and cleansers (CerAve hydrating cleanser, Avene hydrating moisturizer), and while they help with my skin's dryness, they seem to just make the the breakouts worse or give me more clogged pores/closed comedones.
Anyone dealing with similiar issues or any suggestions on how to treat this type of skin? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
(I'm also taking fish-oil supplements and a multi-vitamin speciifcally for someone with gluten intolerance).
