There was a time when I wasn’t so concerned about my skin care regimen. I would buy a skin care product just because I saw it being advertised on TV, without care if its the right product for my skin type. And when it comes to purchasing facial washes and cleansers, I bought those that promise to have serious exfoliating and whitening properties. I never understood why people would buy mild facial cleansers. I would hoard on strong cleansers and papaya soaps and use them religiously thinking both are more suitable for my oily, acne-prone skin.
The use of products with harsh ingredients really took its toll on my skin. I broke out a lot and now have premature lines and wrinkles. So sometime last year, I finally decided to made significant changes to my skincare routine by using mild cleansers and facial washes. And true enough, I no longer get those nasty zits as often as I used to.
