Help Me Kill My Chin Zit

23 May 2013 - 06:32 PM

Last few weeks I've been breaking out in a single red zit on my chin. It went away a couple of days ago but it seems a new one sprang up in its place. It's the only place right now that I'm breaking out. I can't tell if it's hormonal, inflammatory, whatever. But it bugs me.

This is what I have been doing:

Wash face w/ Anatomicals face wash and silicon scrubber

Tone with Thayers/Water/ACV mixture, or colloidial silver, or both

moisturize as needed with EV coconut oil

Man this thing is bugging me. I'm trying a raw honey mask on it.

Do You Commit Long Term To A Regimen Or Do You Switch Products A Lot?

Even when I see great results I always wanna try something else eventually.

Fluorescent Lighting?

16 May 2013 - 10:54 AM

Ok I always noticed this but don't know if there's anything to it, but: When I was in high school one thing that really annoyed me was how uncomfortably oily my skin got throughout the day. I always associated this with the overhead fluorescent lighting at school. Since I've started online school at home where I'm mostly exposed to natural light, my skin is way less oily. Like there are probably other, stronger factors but my skin rarely feels greasy anymore. And I felt that slimy feeling again when i went in for the SATs.

Am I just imagining this or what?

Does Anyone Use Face Brushes/clarisonic/scrubby Pads?

16 May 2013 - 06:55 AM

Last week I bought the precision pore cleansing pad at sephora (it's this little pink silicon thing) and have been using it to wash my face twice a day. Where before my skin was almost completely clear, I'm starting to break out on my chin and jawline, but I can't tell if it's related, because:

-I break out when I get my monthly but my birth control makes me not bleed or anything (sorry tmi) so I can't always tell when my breakouts are hormonal or not

-Sometimes people say that a new product can make your skin worse before it gets better (and my chin usually has a few blackheads so I'm not sure if they just "evolved" or what)

- How can something that feels so good on my face be bad for my skin?? :(

So should I back off the scrubbing for a while or keep going for a few more weeks?
