Ugh, Im so annoyed.
So, for the past several years I have had whiteheads on the upper part of my cheeks, that never seem to stop appearing, no matter what I do. I've used a million different products, including every brand of natural soap you can think of, moisturizers, etc.
Anyway, I had a facial about a month ago ,and I asked the lady how to keep them from coming back (after she'd dug them all out), and she told me that I needed to be washing my face every night before bed, and moisturizing. Washing in the morning, and moisturizing again. Exfoliating every third day, and using a mask 1-2 times a week. To always wash medium warm, rinse cold. Wash my pillowcase every other day.
SO, thats what I've done, and it's a PIA. It's a crapload of thinking about my face and keeping it super clean and guess what?!?! I have just as many whiteheads on my upper cheeks (they are on both sides, right on the cheekbone). Im so freaking over this. The moisturizer was supposed to keep my skin "so moist that if a white head did develop it could just be squeezed out." Ha! Tell my currently broken open in 10 different places face that!
Ideas? Im so close to stopping natural products for my face and just ordering proactive like everyone else in my family (note: none of us have acne, they just use it because they like to have perfect looking skin, and Im the only one with whiteheads on the regular)
