Washing too much creating more oil

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Well to be honest, I'm kinda of drying out. I think it may be because I have real oily skin (with mild acne, thank god because most people with oily skin are grade A "F'd"!), and therefore i wash with a heavy lather not once, but twice, and then with another light lather for a third rinse, day and night. Is this too much? I just feel like if i dont do this, then i have surface oils and dirt on my face and i hate that feeling. Let me know what you guys think!

the more you wash to try to dry out your skin the more oil your skin will produce to try to compensate. just wash it twice a day and don't use a moisturizer except sunscreen in the morning.

i think it is too much to do one wash right after another like that. i use the purpose clensing bar, and that works really well when it comes to removing dirt and oil from your face. you can feel it. i think maybe if you wash once with the purpose bar, using heavy lather, it'll be enough.

i wash in the morning and at night. during the day i may wash my face with just water.
