acv caused me to breakout?!

Recommended Posts

hello, i've been using aztec clay mask with acv for a month now and my skin type is oily and acne prone skin. i use aztec 3 times a week. however, it doesn't improve my skin and my skin gets more oily and irritated instead of drying out my face, i feel like it is because of the acv.

It could be, or it could also be doing its job too well. If you dry out your face too much, your skin will begin to produce more oil to compensate. Try backing off on the clay mask a little, maybe only once a week. Wash your face twice a day -- no more. You may even want to skip cleanser in the morning and just wipe it with a damp cloth. 

Always use moisturizer, try one formulated for oily skin. I like alcohol-free witch hazel for toner to restore pH. It's up to you. Also, try not to touch your face.

Good luck
