Help me please! I'm breaking out don't know what to do!!!

So I'm the type of person that rarely breaks out and I get commented oh how I have good skin. Recently I've been breaking out on my chin and in between my eyebrows. I did start to use ponds dry skin cream and I could be that but I'm not sure, so I am going to experiment not using it for two weeks and see what happens. The weird thing is that the rest of my face is fine, and I also have pretty clean diet and drink about 12 cups of water a day. I have used noxzema classic clean for about two years and never broke out with it. I was hoping for someone to recommend me a really good cleanser and moisturizer that could help because this break out has been on face for almost a month. Thank you!

Considering that you state that you have been using something new on your face, there is a good chance that is the culprit - so your plan to stop using it for a few weeks is a good idea.


I would stick to a simple cleanser, either something you have used in the past that you know doesn't cause any issues for you or something with very few ingredients that is formulated for sensitive acne-prone skin. In terms of a moisturiser, you could try Tatcha's Indigo Cream, or perhaps something from CeraVe - you're basically looking for something that is going to help calm down your skin without being likely to cause further irritation. 


I also would strongly recommend that you get yourself some pimple patches to help clear up stubborn spots.
