My wedding is December 27, 2014 and I'm already worried that my skin is going to be awful on that day.
Let me start by saying that I have had acne since I was 13 (now 23) and I honestly feel like it has gotten worse since high school. My skin is oily/combination (it dries out around my mouth and chin). I have literally tried everything. I have done every drug store cleanser and lotion, department store products, and special order products. I also went to the dermatologist a few times. It seems to me like everything I use will work for a month or so and then my skin gets immune to it and starts to act up again.
In the past few months, it hasn't been quite so bad but is now starting to seem like it is going to break out. I am currently using Neutrogena Cleansing Gel (you know the orange liquid stuff) and the Clinque Dramatically Different Gel morning and night. I also exfoliate a couple of times a week with St. Ives Blemish Control (I know you should only do it once a week but I would do it every day if it didn't cause my skin to produce too much oil). The foundation I have been using is Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation, which I do like because I can use it in Winter and Summer without it being too oily.
Any suggestions would be useful. I'm trying to get a jumpstart on this now so that by my wedding I may have a successful skin care regimen.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
