What's wrong with my skin?!
 
2 Attachment(s)
Throughout my teenage years I was luckily able to mostly bypass the horrible acne stage, but I have always had what I consider to be bad skin. It's never been quite clear & always has these little bumps, especially on my forehead & nose. I'm not sure if they are clogged pores or black/white heads but I want them gone! Right now I use a Burt's bees face wash with my clarisonic Mia & moisturize with a Burt's bees moisturizer during the day & aloe Vera gel or almond oil at night. What have I been doing wrong?Attachment 25837Attachment 25838

Hair product rundown? Maybe that breaks you out.

That was my first reaction too, especially since you say you've never had horrible acne or breakouts. For me, small pumps like that localized on my forehead and outer parts of the face were the result of too heavy/oily hair products.

All that moisturizing would clog me. I can't wear any moisturizer at all, especially not oils.

Thanks guys! I'll keep an eye out for the product rundown.

And if I don't wear moisturizers, my face dries out & then overcompensates by producing even more oil.

I think I may try to incorporate more exfoliation and masks. Any product recommendations?

Bit of baking soda mixed with ur cleanser...works every time; light and efficient.
