I don’t know WTH is going on. My skin has been breaking out like crazy, I’ll say in this last year specifically. I used to get a monthly pimple around my cycle, but now I feel like they just pop out random. And yes THEY …no more single whiteheads its like a gang of them at once. And then it tends to be cystic acne, the deep ones.
To make matters worse, I’m a picker…I know, I know…bad. I CAN”T HELP IT. It’s sitting on my face looking gross, so have to pop it. And now because I’m on the other side of 40, now when I pick my skin doesn’t heal quickly and there is a greater risk leaving behind a scar. I’ve never had it this a bad even when I was a teenager, so I’m really pissed.
I think I’m going to schedule an appointment with my dermo. But am I the only one experiencing this? It’s driving me crazy.
I recently started using Trader Joe’s SPA Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil and it seems to be calming my face down and I hope that it helps with future breakouts.
What are you Bee’s who suffer from acne using to help fight the good fight?
