Gah...breakout freakout.

Recommended Posts

So basically, it seems I break out over the course of a few hours. I get about three pustucles around my chin, feel crappy about it, then like five hours later I get another two. It's disheartening, because I feel like I'm doing something wrong.

I'm using a combo of Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil gel during the day, and pure oil at night. Anyone esle think this is ok?

At least they aren't cystic, but I just wish I could be like everyone else who walk around with clear skin =[

I would say, if it helps, use it. Sorry, not helpful, huh. I tried tea tree oil for a long time, didn't do much for me, all in all. It can kill acne-causing bacteria, and that's about it. When I find myself breaking out like crazy I take some ibuprofen, use some benzoyl peroxide (which also has anti-inflammatory properties), and drink water, take vitamins, try and sleep. I also have a lot of luck with topical lemon juice, but whatever, you didn't ask all this.

My point is if you're breaking out so quickly I'd go with something stronger.
