Detergent Affecting Acne?

MsDani

353 views

So I've been racking my brain and racking my brain for like 2 months now trying to figure out why my skin is breaking out so much worse post college graduation (May 2013). It just dunned on me, MAYBE it's my detergent.

In college I had my own washer & dryer and I bought specific detergent for sensitive skin..,since moving back with my parents, I use whatever detergent they're using on top of washing my clothes with other peoples! Plus I don't wash my pillows every week like I used to. Could that be the reason?

This week I'm going to purchase some satin pillow cases & new detergent to see if that'll help. Let me guys know what you think.

I switch pillow cases everyother night and use sensitive..for me it was only apart of the problem...i just create to much oil for my own good...to much oil gets clogged very easily then a pimple starts..Ive had acne for like 5 years straight...started taking accutane..im on the end of month 2 and its definitely going away because it shrinks the pore so it can not get clogged...not recommending that but at least see a dermatologist if the problem persists cuz the acne bug can be stuborn if you keep it around to long

I would like to get on but my dermatologist told me he doesn't prescribe it so I would have to

Go

To another Derm. Honestly, I'm kind've scared to

Get on. I just hear about a lot of crazy side affects.

It's a good idea to wash pillow cases and sheets quite often. Using a detergent for sensitive skin is also important. Seems to help my skin at least. Good luck! :)
