Can I share a secret with you? I stopped washing my face!

Alright now that I have your attention I can fill you in. I have always had oily acne prone skin. ALWAYS! From late teens to adulthood. And when I was pregnant, forget it! I had days, even months here and there where it would be nice and clear and then other days where it would be horrible, broken out, oily but kind of dry. Just blah! Yes even being an Aesthetician I just couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. Then bam! It hit me, I was over washing! And not only that but I was using all the wrong products. You see I didn't really have bad skin at all. I gave myself pimples by misusing the wrong products. Let me give you the simplest advice you'll ever receive: Stop washing your face so much! Don't get stuck in the oily/acne trap. If you are using the right products, and remove all of your makeup at night, you don't need to wash in the morning. Splash some warm water on there or spray your face with a gentle toner and you are good to go. If you aren't sure about your products then come and see us and we will put you in the right direction!
