I woke up this morning and my skin was broken out, I have about 7 whiteheads on my nose and my mouth/chin area, and my skin seemed a bit oily today. Usually, my skin is clear, except 1 or 2 small whiteheads during certain times of the month. There have been 3 things that I think may have caused this acne to pop up, but I'm not sure which one.
1st, this past weekend I've been eating badly, consisting of a lot of sweet Bourbon brownies, and hotdogs with fries and chili. Normally, my diet is fairly healthy, with a sweet here and there, but I ate quite a bit this weekend.
2nd, I've been using up old cleansers/masks to get rid of them so my cabinet is clean and only consists of things I use. Last night I used Aveenos positively brightening cleanser that is close to a year old to wash my face, and I wondered if that broke my skin out.
And 3rd, for the past month and 10 days (since the beginning of January) I've been taking 1 gram of Omega 3 fish oil every day. I haven't noticed any side effects from this pill, except that my skin feels soft, and has stayed clear until this morning. I've read that fish oil usually causes adverse affects in the beginning, and that one would broke out within the first week, rather than over a month later. Any ideas which of these 3 things could be the reason my skin broke out last night? Thanks! (:
(Tonight, I'm going to use my regular cleanser instead, so that way if the cleanser is the issue, I won't make it worse.)
