Hello Catiebug16,

 

 

I had that same problem too! I am not sure why you are breaking out on only the right side of your face however, I have some recommendations for you.  I found that I used my cell phone on a certain side and notice that it was breaking me out a bit because of all the dirt and oil that was never cleaned off of my phone.  I now clean my cell phone with a disincentive wipe.  I also make sure that I clean my pillow cases at least once a week.  I found that this has helped my skin too.  I think that you should use a skincare line that has salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to help treat and prevent acne.

Do you sleep on the right side?  It could be from your pillow case too or if you sleep with your hand on your face on that side...

 

That was happening to me a few years ago and that is what it was.

 

Treat the breakouts with some of the recommended products and look into every possible factor that could be causing it.

 

Best wishes,

I have the exact same problem.  I started using Korres White Tea Gel Cleanser again to see if it would help, but so far it has not.  I am thinking of returning that product and trying two that was recommended by the Expert. 

 

I've tried so many things and home remedies too and they didnt do anything.  I hope those recommendations help us both.
