Sudden Breakouts!

   I have oily skin. It was pretty good all summer where I had little to no breakouts ,but now my skin keeps breaking out along my cheeks (mostly), and chin. I can also see some about to on my fore head. I have been using the same skin care products since the summer. What is causing this and what should I do?!

Re: Sudden Breakouts!

Do you live in an area with distinct seasons? Where I live the winter is drier and colder, so I find that I have to exfoliate slightly more and cleanse more gently/thoroughly to prevent dull skin, clogged pores and irritations which lead to breakouts.


Also, as you get older your skin changes. When I was 24-25ish, I definitely noticed my skin wasn't the same and I need to step up the game to keep it looking good. *sigh*

@EmilyFMc What is your current routine?

RE: Sudden Breakouts!

After a while my skin will get use to the products I'm using. Try just getting different products
