Switching Facial Cleanser = Acne Breakouts. Dammit!

I switched facial cleanser recently and the breakouts that resulted from that change is horrendous. In hindsight, I guess it was really a silly thing to do to switch cleansers since the old one was working well. I switched from Deep Cleansing Seaweed Cleanser from The Body Shop to the Deep Cleansing Wash from Simple. It always takes at least 4 weeks for my skin to adapt to the new cleanser and during that time, I have hell of a lot of trouble trying to keep the breakouts at bay. The Deep Cleansing Mask from Simple may have also had some contribution to the sudden massive breakouts since you know, deep cleansing masks brings out the impurities from the skin which in turn causes acne. For me at least, not sure about other people though.

I also think that my diet lately has affected my skin. I haven’t been drinking enough good ol’ H-two-oh, just lots of tea and other caffeinated products. Too much salt, chocolates and various oily food (basically non-nutritious and healthy sustenance). I don’t think that my daily intake of one fruit a day actually helps since it’s a minute nectarine.

Anyway, I think it’s time that I actually get professional help with my skin. I don’t mean going to the doctor’s to get oral medication (even though I’ve done that before) since I don’t think it’s good to be so depended to something chemical. I mean that I should actually visit a beautician to help purge my skin. I can’t do the facial by myself. The lady that my sister goes to for her facial seems good and very affordable compared to The Body Shop one that I went to. I have an appointment in two weeks and I hope that the worst of the breakouts would have gone down by then.

I just want to have good skin. Is that so hard to ask for?
