Well Im back to washing with water only!
And so far after a week Ive had only a few very small teeny ones...not like the big reds that I got before. Although it does feel a tad bit dry after washing it sometimes but mostly it goes away in a short while. But like after a shower I put just a little complex 15 on and so far I dont think its made me break out. I know my skin is adjusting, and it will take some more time, but I honestly dont think Ive ever gone this long without having a huge zit or cluster of zits along my jawlike and chin or cheek area.
The only thing Im really dealing with is that my pores are really clogged and sometimes have flaky skin. But I guess Id rather deal with that then a bunch of new deep red beauties. Like I said, the kind Im getting now are just the small, light pink ones you can even notice unless you gazing closeup, except for my upper lip area is still tickin me off.
Im just trying to see what works with this method, but so far its working better than anything. And Im not just splashing water on, Im wetting a washcloth and holding it to my face for a few seconds and then gently massaging however I feel it needs and concentrating on my flaky clogged areas. I gave it a week so far, and I tried it a while before but I just got put off with the flaking and ruff feeling skin, but I honestly think my skin will heal itself eventually. My husband mostly only washes with water, and his skin is moisturized naturally, never dry, nothing (hes even older, is in the sun more, never has moisturized ever, and doesnt have ONE fine line). I know its tough to give up products, because we have it engraved in our head that they are the only thing that will work, even I just bought my favorite cleanser and have a whole bottle left....eh, Ill find another use for it...I urge anyone to try it and just try to be tough with it for a while.
