I’m one of those lucky ones whose acne has followed them into adulthood. It’s not bad, but it’s something that I can’t neglect or I do notice a difference in the clarity and amount of acne I get.
I haven’t found a product line yet or skin care program that I’m completely convinced works for me, so I decided to add Aveda Outer Peace product line’s Acne Relief Pads to see how they work. It’s been about 4 days, and my complexion is clearing up a bit, but not to the extent that I would expect. However, I’m not consistently using any other products to clean/treat my face at the moment. I do find that these work during the warmer months when my skin feels more clammy/moist to the touch. It helps to reduce that build up of oil that ultimately leads to acne.
So far, I’d say it’s ok, but I may inquire about a skin care regimen from Aveda at my next appointment.
Non-Aveda products I have used are: Mary Kay’s Timewise product line (the microderm abrasion set, 3-in-1 cleanser), Wexner acnescript, Aveeno acne foaming wash, Aveeno acne bar, Biore clear pore pads, and just plain old rubbing alcohol. I’m sure there are more if I really think about it.
My concerns also include having sensitive skin so I need a skin care regiment that will not irritate my pores and cause a breakout.
Stay tuned for more…
