Skin Crisis

on Oct 12, 2012 @ 03:17 pm

I recently moved and the water is doing tricks to my skin. I am breaking out like a middle schooler!  It's not just me, my sister said when she moved here her skin started breaking out badly as well. I have talked to several people that have mentioned they have had a similar problem. 
Have any of you experienced this? What tips/suggestions do you have? Thanks!

You probably have hard water which can really plug up pores and cause breakouts.Try washing your face with colder water as the hot water is going to open up your pores and create that acne...Try not to use to much facial cleanser as you don't want that build up on your face.

Perhaps use a toner afterwards to wipe away leftover buildup...Make a simple toner with distilled water and a few drops of pure essential tea tree oil....Good Luck midnight :)

climate? on Nov 21, 2012 @ 06:53 pm

Not sure where you moved from/to, but maybe the climate is affecting your skin? If you moved from somewhere with low humidity for example to somewhere with a hotter, damper climate your skin may be producing excess oils etc.

If climate can't be the issue though, then i'd say hard water as well. My parents house has well-water, and its extremely hard, so growing up I never had a problem because I was used to it. Then I moved into the city and the water changed, and now whenever I go back to my parents for a stay I notice I break out a bit more than I usually would.

If you think it's the water i'd follow bren's advice and use less cleanser/moisturizer, but if it's the climate you may need to alter your entire skin regime to better suit your skins new needs.
