should i use salicylic acid?!

winter girl


so i was washing my face with benzoyl peroxide 10% for a few months, and noticed in that time that it cleared up my skin in this first month, but after that i began to develop larger cystic acne while i was still using the product..... i dont really know why...

 anyways i stopped using it altogether and have just been using witch hazel only on my skin for about a month now. 

if u read my past two blog posts, i said that im going through a breakout, and i guess i have to use something to get rid of it now... i just dont know what. 

i used a 2% salicylic acid cleanser a short while ago for like... four days, and it did kind of dry up my smaller pimples, but it made my forehead soooo bumpy! 

i wish i had a photo, it was just super rough like sandpaper, tons of little bumps it looked like an allergy!

did that happen to anyone else? did it clear up with continued use, and how long did it take to clear?

i swear in middle school i used to use the neutrogena grapefruit cleanser- literally THE most basic mediocre face wash im sure every girl used in their tween years...it had salicylic acid in it, and i swear it never made my skin erupt in little bumps.

maybe i just don't remember that well.... maybe i just didnt really care as much about my skin back then.
