I wasn't trying to keep my antimicrobial bodywashes and soaps, I was trying to understand bodywashes and soaps and their true role in cleansing my body because all this time I had assumed that all soaps were killing bacteria and that was the supreme function of them.
Oh, how ignorant I was!!!!!
Since my last post in this thread, I have made several sweeping changes to my facial regimen. Things that I never thought in my life I would be doing. And the outcome was shocking.
I began the oil cleansing method. After much reading and watching of videos, I purchased grapeseed oil and lavender oil as a facial cleanser, and jojoba oil as a moisturizer.
The number of breakouts on my face decreased! I was in shock. And my face felt fully moisturized all day. And it didn't feel heavy and weighed down either.
I also stopped wearing makeup 6 days out of the week, and guess what. Again, fewer breakouts!! This is a makeup I had been using for years!!
Guess what this means! Soaps and makeup cause breakouts!!!! Who would have thought! Certainly not me. But now I know I need to change my makeup. Just a FYI for everyone out there, the makeup I used for many years that made me breakout is Maybelline. I will never be using it again.
To some folks, these statements might be very obvious, but to me, they were totally shocking.
