Most likely. Wiping the skin usually causes irritation, and irritation leads to breakouts.

Instead of wiping, try making it more of a really gentle "patting" motion. Still going to irritate it a tad, but not nearly as much as wiping it. smile.gif

Hold on.

That's not sweat, that's oil. You need to find a good way to cleanse your face to avoid oily skin. This happens to many people.

MOST OILY PLACES:

Upper lip

Chin

Nose & Around Nose

T-Zone + Forehead

Cheeks can sometimes be oily for people with oily skin
