I am breaking out! My skin is so oily and I'm not use to having pimples! I didn't even have pimples during puberty. I usually have really clear skin!
Anyone else having this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions? Or is a paper bag my newest accessory?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA that is too funny.

Im obsessed with products from The Body Shoppe, a friend of mine from work sells the stuff so I get it for cheap, but otherwise it would be too expensive for me. I love burts bees though, I use their toner and carrot day creme and my skin seriously GLOWS.

I know, Im not much help...Sorry....

Okay. Bag it is! :
(Thanks for your comment! I'll have to go exploring the beauty aisle at the market. Usually I just use scrubs. This will be an adventure for me! )

ewww... I'll pass. No offense to you but ... gross... I pictured in my head someone wiping off thick oil from their face and slathering it on mine.

Add me in, too. Ugh. I'm breaking out like a 12 year old boy. So far, I'm still using my Johnson's Daily Pore Cleanser. It's oil free and what I've used for about 10 years.

One thing that helped my oily skin was to wash at night, then only do a hot rinse in the morning. No soap. When I washed with soap in the morning, it seemed to make the oil production worse.

Good luck. I'm right there with you! :

I'm breaking out as well. I've found Dr. Bronner's soap w. tea tree oil to be a great and affordable fix, supplemented with Dr. Haushka's normalizing oil.

There are several factors that cause break out:
  • Touching Your Face
  • Excessive intake of oily, dairy and sugar products
  • Stress
  • Not cleansing your face properly
  • Using New Skin Care Products
  • Hormonal changes
  • Menopause
  • Weather
  • Travel
  • Medications
Invest in is good oil-free moisturizer with mattifying ingredients and don't forget to apply sunscreen before going out.
