DAY 125: AHHH IT BURNS

adalyn

328 views

I just washed my face with St. Ives Apricot Scrub and my Benprox 5.25% Benzoyl Peroxide Cleanser.

My face BURNS. It's super sensitive now and I think I did an exfoliation overload the past few days. My skin is scaly and peeling like crazy - there's giant scaly patches on my face... T_T

I tried on an azelaic acid sample from my new derm... and my skin burned. I am NOT using it.

I put on my CeraVe Cream after washing off the azelaic acid and my skin burned worse from the cream. Oh my...

So the lesson/moral is that I overexfoliated the past few days. I'm laying off on the Neutrogena Stress Control Scrub. I'm laying off on scrubs and anything with salicylic acid too. I'm going to let my skin heal from the patches now, and then take care of the acne. Right now the acne isn't too bad; its the peeling and dryness that's driving me insane. Does anyone know a good non-comedogenic facial moisturizer that's not Cetaphil or Cerave?
