When some of the world’s most celebrated experts and publications say that there might be a connection between benzoyl peroxide and wrinkles, it’s cause for alarm for many of us worried about both acne and fine lines.
Ever notice that you’re more likely to break out at certain times of the month or at certain temperatures? I have and have always wondered whether I should be treating my breakouts the same in the dead of summer as I am in the middle of winter.
Wipes have exploded. They’re so easy to use on the go, and when you’re like me and easily break out if you don’t cleanse right after sweating, they’re crucial, so it’s nice to have so many options on the marketplace.
It drives me nuts that I have to be so careful about my skin or risk breaking out – literally if I have a sweaty workout and don’t wash my face immediately after, I’ll break out the next day. Why couldn’t this problem have ended with my teenage years?! Alas, so is life and with summer coming up and the temperatures going up, extra precautions must be taken.
I can’t even tell you how many people have bought a Clarisonic because of my raving about it. I used to use it everyday after my workouts at Barry’s Bootcamp and there was almost no day when at least one person didn’t ask me about it. Even though it has been months since I’ve used it, I still have people coming up to me every so often at the gym to tell me they bought one because they saw me using it.
Don’t get me wrong – sulfur and salicylic acid are miracle workers for treating acne, as is glycolic acid since exfoliating is key to preventing breakouts. But nothing has proven as effective as benzoyl peroxide when it comes to treating my own breakouts.
