forget to wash face and acne better in the morning?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys...

first off EXCELENT site! its great to have a community to help one another out with a common problem.

I am 21 years old this december.

I dont have bad acne but currently i have 4 zits on my face and tiny under the skin bumps ALL OVER my forhead and sides of my eyebrows. It seemes that when i forget to wash myface at night ( 2% SA wash) my those bumps seem to shrink in the morning????

I am too scared to try washing with an unmedicated soap, fearing that i will break out totally! I have red marks on my forhead from previous pimples. is it possible that my face is irritated and that is what is causing those tiny under-skin pimples? Perhaps i should wash once a day only?

Thanks :-)

Andrew

hey!

i take a break from my routine on the weekends and my skin ALWAYS seems to heal faster! i find its good to give a break from the 2x a day thing. So i'm cutting my regimen to 2x a day washing every other day or twice a week or when i get flare ups and otherwise just shower once a day.

Too much BP for me i think for everyday. if i only use it every other day i should be okay.

mind you i'm also on antibiotics and Diane 35 *shrugs*

Well... i decided to bite the bullet and start a photo journal for you guys while i try this process.. I am stopping ALL chemical acne treatments SC and BP... i always thought they were just keeping my breakouts "under ground" i could still see the bumps where a pimple would be under my skin.

7 days a week-

Morning:

Purpose gentle cleansing wash ( advertised to be as gentle as water)

50/50 lubriderm/aloe lotion

Night:

Purpose gentle cleansing wash ( advertised to be as gentle as water)

Tea Tree Oil ( 100%) spot treatment

GENROUS 50/50 lubriderm/aloe lotion
