Been using a sulphur bar soap for almost 4mos. My face is less oily, and I dont get as much pustules as I used to. Side effects for me: dryness/peeling but only on my jaw and chin area, but it's fine once I dab a moisturizer.
I've read that for some people, the more you touch your face the more it gets irritated so I only wash my face at night, too. In the morning I just use washcloth for my eyes and mouth, then gently blot the oily area w/ tissue or oil blotter.
Also dont get too stressed out about the little things! Stress causes acne too.
my face looks really bad, way too many whiteheads and way too many red bumpy spots, these red spots are not cysts, because they dont pain at all......this is the worst my face has looked ever, i have always had acne but like ten spots, these are more like 50 spots, i am not counting, just a very rough estimate to give you the feel.....also my face is super dry, esp the area around my mouth, no matter how much i moisturize, it gets dry like in the next half hour, and surprisingly that where most of my breakouts/IB are.
I'm sorry about the whiteheads, I experienced that too. But mine's gone now (only a few on the side of my cheeks, unlike before they're all over my face) .. I guess we really just have to wait it out, they'll go away after some time. Best of luck!
i still have the grainy skin feeling going on, something seems to be coming out, first i thought they were blackheads but they are not black in color at all, but instead they are small and white, and they are hard and feel like sugar or sand particles.
I'm on my day 27 and currently experiencing this as well ...They showed up around my 2nd week and they're still here.
I wish they would go away soon, I'm super conscious of these tiny whiteheads all over my face, and they feel like sandpaper
