Recommended Posts

i have constant mild to most moderate breakouts so how am i supposed to know if a product or food is making it worse!

i started using olay complete moisturizer (sensitive) last week, and my skin has exploded. trouble is i dont know if its the moisturizer thats causing it or just my skin being annoying as usual! :rolleyes: i wonder if its the spf in it.....

i hope ur just using that spf moisturizer only during the day times.. and about wats making u break out, i really wudnt kno... all i can say is just stick with healthy food and drinks, if u carelessly eat and drink anything then theres just too many possibilities of whats really breaking u out, but i seriously doubt it.

id say give it another two weeks, but u shud of started with the recommended products cause i dont really kno much about olay so i wudnt kno if its good or not

olays moisturizers do have a pore clogging ingredient in them.. oleth 3 .. its certainly possible the moisturizer has been causing you to break out.. a lot of products claim to be non comodegenic but sometimes you have to look into it to make sure.

You can try to go over what you eat and what contacts your skin, and eliminate one by one the things you think could be causing the most problems, and see what happens. Hope you can figure it out :angel:
