Long story, need advice.

Recommended Posts

I washed my face every morning and night and found my skin to be very oily causing breakouts. So I did some research and i found that's if you didn't use anything except water on your face the oil production gets back to normal. So I did that for a couple days and it worked, but my skin didn't really start clearing up. I know you're supposed to give things more than a couple days but I cracked and used my differin 0.3% acne cream again. The oiliness has been coming back a bit. And I hate that but I don't want to stop using it and have my skin freak out. Idk what's causing my acne whether it's pms and just teenage hormones or what, there just tiny little red bumps I get on my forehead and nose and cheeks, they still cause me so much sadness because I had a terrible acne breakout a couple years ago and now I have issues. My skin was perfect for months and then all of a sudden it changed, and I didn't even change my routine. But now I am and I need to figure it out. So idk if I should use my cream and be oily all the time or not use anything but water and be not oily. They both scare me because I think I'll break out either way. Grad is coming up soon too so I am very anxious. I need advice.
