OH MY GOSH! Olay Gentle Foaming Face Wash for Sensitive Skin is made with sodium lauryl sulfate, which is a pore-clogging, skin-irritating ingredient! What was I thinking? No wonder my acne has not improved significantly! I will never use that cleanser again. I thought because it is "gentle" and for "sensitive skin", it would be good for my skin, but nope! It is loaded with sulfates! Gosh. And SLS is a #5 (5 being the highest) on the scale of irritation.
Anyway...my skin looks slightly better today. My chin is less red. A lot of my pimpes have developed heads and look ready to be popped. I will do that when I wash my face tonight. I am done with over 2 and a half days of the regimen. I don't know if I can even count it now because of my cleanser mistake. Oh, well! At least I found out now rather than later.
I went to my doctor today because of menstruation problems, and she might put my on birth control to regulate my hormones. Hopefully that will clear up my acne if I start taking it. That would be great!
I need to find a cleanser that is SLS-free. I wonder if Cetaphil is...I know we have that upstairs in the bathroom. Maybe I should just use Dan's cleanser. I will check it out. I know he would only put the safest ingredients in his products.
Well....I will check back in tomorrow!
P.S. - ONE WEEK UNTIL SCHOOL STARTS!
