Ok I had tried OCM over the summer, it started out great, but a little dry, so I tweaked it (reduced castor oil and switched carrier oils) and things went south. I started breaking out like crazy. I tried tweaking more and ended up back with my Mary Kay, which still wasn't working. I tried a deep cleansing oil, skin improved, then started getting worse. Finally remembered my original OCM born was 75% castor and 25% olive so I tried it again, adding ACV toner (half ACV half water) and jojoba for dryness. I have a super oily forehead and am dryer around my mouth. I know its alot of castor oil, but this combo was the best for my forehead so I will deal with using jojoba as moisturizer when needed.
Ok. So things were going well. My skin feels balanced and clean. No oiliness, not dry. Great. But I'm still getting breakouts! Mostly on my forehead but also on my face. And I'm lucky to be one that gets scars that hang around for what seems like months after the sit finally leaves. But that takes weeks. Its like my zits last forever. I get some smaller bumps, but the main ones are the ones that hurt, are red and round. And awful.
But I don't understand why I'm still getting breakout when my skin seems so much better. Anyone have this issue? I'm afraid to tweak and make it worse.
If it matters, my skin was improving til I went to a concert and didn't wash my face that night. I did it in the morning and omitted the ACV bc I didn't want to smell like feet all day. But I would think once wouldn't ruin everything I've worked so hard for. And it was a couple weeks ago.
I love whoever replies and will be indebted to you forever.
