Skin care recommendation failed the test

So this week I tried out OXY maximum cleansing pads with high hopes for good results, as this was recommended to me by someone else. I have to admit, it worked pretty well on the problem areas I already had. I can visibly see that they’re smaller and on their way to healing. However, these cleansing pads dry out your face horribly and aren’t a very good preventative. I only used these once a day due to the drying effects. That doesn’t work well with my skin. For those of you with oily skin, though, I would recommend trying this in the evenings before going to bed. For others, I wouldn’t use this without a trusted moisturizer that you know won’t make you break out.

One thing I want to bring up is that I recommended using this product at night. Yes, you should wash your face in the morning and in the evening both. The directions on the box of cleansing pads suggest beginning with one per day, though, so you don’t dry out your skin before it’s used to it. For anyone who only washes their face once a day, whether it be by choice or because of the products you use, I strongly recommend doing it at night. Similar to brushing your teeth, when you sleep you allow the dirt to clog your pores. You get dirt on your pillow that will get on your face the next time you use it. You let your makeup do its destructive job of making you wear more because it gave you another blemish. Washing your face at night removes the daily dirt, the makeup, and keeps the things that sit on your face for eight hours while you sleep cleaner so that it won’t effect you as much while you sleep.

Next week I’ll be discussing different spot treatments, or “solutions” to that one bothersome spot. I’ll be testing and comparing a couple different solutions, and some of these may surprise you. Check in next week to see what the results are! Once again, if you ever try anything from my blog and you wish to comment, and please do because feedback can only help, or if you have recommendations please email me at [email protected] You can either leave a name in your email or put anonymous; it may show up on the following week’s blog. Thank you for reading and I hope this helps all of you out there who have blemishes you wish you didn’t have.
