My skin is having a trauma. A combination of too much stress, not enough water, possibly not the best dietary choices, and heat (heat here and quite a bit of hot yoga).
Most of the above are in the process of being remedied (not the heat - we need the sun, Western Canada has been soaked, and I love my hot yoga), but in the mean time, I need your favourite zit-fighting products.
I do have good stuff to clean, exfoliate and moisturize my face don't I just sound like a Clinique ad, but I need something powerful to calm down and dry up these painful red inflamed volcanoes that are making me miserable.
Seriously. I never went through this in my teens. WHY NOOOOOOWWWWWWW?????
Would encourage anyone who suffers with spots to google peri-oral dermatitis. My GP diagnosed this & a course of antibiotics does the trick. had a spotty chin all my life until then (40 next year!) I agree with others that antibiotics shouldn't be taken lightly, but I had no side-effects, which was a relief as I usually get unpleasant ones & am even allergic to a couple.
Thanks - I did actually have that about ten years ago, and somehow it cleared up by itself. But I wouldn't choose take antibiotics for anything other than a real infection, they upset my insides too much.
