I am getting married in 5 months and REALLY need to find something that works for my skin. With make-up my skin looks okay – without it, yikes!
I’m not sure if I’m really oily or really dry… In the morning, after my face is put on (make up) and I’m out the door, in less than an hour, you can literally wipe oil off my face (really gross, I know). I’m not sure if that means I’m dry so my skin is producing extra oil – or if I’m really oily. PLUS I have some acne.
Can anyone PLEASE offer some advise? I’ve tried Mary Kay, MD formulations, Proactiv Solutions, and even gone the natural route with an organic facewash and lotion… nothing is helping =o(

Have you thought about going to a dermatologist? Are you on the Pill? How many times per day are you washing your face? Are you using oil-based products?
I use Cetaphil cleanser and Aveeno mousturizer, and Bare Escentuals makeup.

I use a really gentle face wash by Neutrogena, Dermalogica daily microfoliant, and Estee Lauder moisturizer. The daily microfoliant is far and away the best thing that ever happened to my face– seriously, my face doesn’t even break out before my period now. It’s pricey, but sooo worth it. I also use Bare Escentuals makeup when I need to wear makeup.

Have you tried getting facials to see if it helps? Or also tried using Cetaphil to wash your face…I’ve heard many many good things about it and I’ve even started using it.
