^^ SHINE FREE!!
YUP. That's right! I'm not sure if my dermatologist would approve of said morning ritual decision, but I recently started using TWO cleansers in the morning. I use Benzoyl Peroxide to wash my face normally. And while it does the job of cleaning out my pores and battling acne, I seem to still combat oily skin.
Oily skin is the root of all my pimply problems. My face produces an excess amount of oil, so I am always trying to find the best product that will dry up my face while still moisturizing it. Clean & Clear did the job, but it left me with dry, cracked skin. Specifically, around my nose (Imagine how I felt blowing my nose--something I do every morning!!). Ultimately, I just hate how shiny my face looks when the oil sits on top of my skin.
Last month, I decided to tack on Olay's Shine Control Lathering Cleanser on to my morning routine. I use less than a dime size because the cleanser is a silver color that scares me. Heh, just kidding. OK. I'm not. I can't help but think of something radioactive when I open the bottle. Combining Olay's Shine Control Lathering Cleanser with the Benzoyl Peroxide Creamy Wash seems to be working. I ceased use of the silver goop everyday because I'm still not sure how using two cleansers at once will affect my sensitive skin. Now it's a twice, sometimes three times, a week treatment.
What do you think? Have you ever dared to use two cleansers at once?
