When my stepdaughter was living with us last year, I noticed that for a thirteen-year-old, she had incredibly clear skin. Except, that is, for five days or so each month when suddenly her forehead and chin would start to break out terribly. The first time her skin flared up I wondered if poor diet was to blame but she confessed that she always had problems with her skin breaking out right before her “time of the month.”
I knew at once there had been a possible revelation in my life. I periodically deal with breakouts and it always seemed like every time I tried a new product, it would work for a few weeks and then suddenly my skin would start breaking out again. I started paying attention to the time of the breakouts and sure enough, my problem skin was also related to the monthly hormonal changes that most women think just cause PMS.
While I was somewhat relieved to know what was causing my adult acne, I still didn’t like it! So I was very excited to be included in the OXY Clear It Up Sweepstakes blog tour. Not only did I receive an assortment of OXY products to test out, I also got the chance to share all the details of this fabulous sweepstakes with all of you!
When I received the products, I was delighted to see three bottles of pHisoderm Restorative Facial Cleanser as well as OXY Triple Action Daily Facial Cleanser and Medicated Acne Pads. I really liked OXY products as a teenager, but as a grown woman, I find some of them are a little too strong for my sensitive skin. PHisoderm, however, is not just incredibly gentle, it’s designed to rebalance the pH levels of skin to help prevent breakouts. I liked it as a teenager and I liked it even more as an adult! The pHisoderm products are fabulous for cleaning skin without stripping it dry, which is incredibly important when you’re an adult and your skin isn’t producing as much oil. And while the Triple Action Medicated Acne Pads were too strong for me to use every day after cleansing, they were perfect for cleaning and refreshing my skin on the go after a strenuous activity or on a hot day!
