Seriously breaking out...

/ Friday, December 2, 2011 /

I haven't really broken out in about 6 months, and now, all of a sudden, I am getting tons and tons of zits.

What is going on?

Yes, I am stressed. I still have 5 essays to write before the end of finals period (right now I have written 3), I still have 2 finals, and I have to write two sections of a scientific paper. However, I am done with my econ problem set and have finished another protocol. And I've been sleeping a lot.

Of course, I'm trying a new chemical peel right now (I guess I'll do a review on that later), but I've stopped that for about 1/2 a week. Other than that, I'm basically sticking to my same old skin routine, which has prevented me from breaking out for 1/2 year!

Perhaps my skin is growing out of my routine and knows how to combat it? Perhaps I need to try new products? Or is it that I'm just super stressed?

If you were to look at me from about 3 feet away, I don't think you'd be able to see my zits. However, they're still just kind of disturbing me.

Perhaps my face is producing more oil because of the dryness of the winter season?

I dunno.

What are ya'll's thoughts? (Yes, I say ya'll, I'm from the deep south, lolz) What do you think I should try?

Maybe your skin IS getting used to the products :( I know some people that swear by switching things like their cleansers and masks every two weeks so their skin won't get used to it! One of my favorite bloggers made this post on Korean celebrity skin care routines!! Check it out :)

I've been breaking out for the fast several weeks too. :c Maybe it is indeed too much stress?
