Waking Up With Acne On Sides Of Face Because (I Think?) Of Pillow

27 July 2014 - 08:37 PM

My skin is pretty sensitive, but if I keep it clean, normally I don't get *too* many breakouts.


I've noticed a trend though. I get most acne on the sides of my face (both of them) which makes sense because those are the sides I sleep on.


I have washed my pillowcase but pimples still appear. I'm almost certain the pillow must be the problem...


Is there anything I can do besides continually washing my pillowcase? I also wash my skin before I go to bed. I just wish there were a protective barrier between my face and the pillow!!!


Also, I can't sleep on my back. I've tried, but in my sleep I turn over to my side. 

I Don't Want To Go Swimming

24 June 2013 - 10:17 PM

I have been trying to clear up my acne for years. I always wear foundation and concealer, but I have a trip to the water park with some people in a couple of days....


I don't have any horribly active pimples, but I do have redness and healing pimples pretty much everywhere. If I wasn't so used to wearing foundation everyday of my life, this wouldn't be a big deal. But since I literally haven't gone in public without makeup in years, I don't know what to do.


I don't want to wear a whole face of foundation (and I know I can't), but do waterproof concealers work? To cover up the reddest parts? :/ 


I am so insecure about my acne that even going without foundation is a HUGE step for me. Any advice? I wish I could just go swimming and not feel so stupidly INSECURE :(

Does anyone go swimming with a face full of acne and not care/just suck it up? PLEASE TELL ME HOW YOU DO IT!!!!
