I have been alternating on the skin products as i like to try out certain things, i guess my face actually broke out after using the clay face mask..
And now i think about it, i used soap to clean my face the other day
Ive never had the chicken pox or measles!
If you switch up the products you use too often, you tend to confuse your skin and irritate it, and, voila, pimples.
I've found that a less-is-more approach with my sensitive skin is definitely the way to go.
Morning: Gentle (soap free) cleanser in the shower, then a nice moisturizer with SPF15 ( richer in the summer, a light gel-formula in the winter). Also I use an underye cream.
Evenings I cleanse with a cleansing cloth (nutrogena) and put on night cream in the winter.
Once a week I use a salicylic-acid based treatment to exfoliate. I don't do well with granular scrubs, they tend to irritate my skin. Though, a scrub with synthetic beads (as opposed to bits of natural pumice or almond shells or that sort of thing) is okay for me.
I'd say leave your skin alone for a week, at least- just gentle cleanser and moisturizer, and see how it goes.
