How can you tell if your skin is intolerant to an item or if your skin is just purging impurities??Just used a new moisturizer last night..It's a sensitive skin formula..I know it doesn't contain any of the usual ingredients that make me break out but when I woke up this morning I had some new white heads on my nose?can't tell if my skin isn't liking it or if this is normal

It could be hormones! Give it some time. Maybe try it again in two weeks. You might find that your skin is misbehaving regardless of the moisturizer. Oh, those hormones LOVE to trick around!

I that happens to me sometimes too with new products. I might give the product another try but if it happens again then I wouldn't use it. For example I love Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer but every time I use it I get the same thing, little white heads on my nose so I only use the moisturizer on special occasions.

um thinking ...

short versus vertically challenged

News flash:A zit is a zit!



Other zit eupemisms:

upset skin = zit

bump = a youthful zit

little red dot = zit

little white dot = zit

irritated freckles = zits in denial

allergic reaction to pizza = zit-izza

unhappy pores = throwing fits zits

little dancing skin dots = sporadic zits

Bow Peep and her sheep = big zit and little zits too

North Star= big huge embarrassing ZIT in middle of nose or forehead

Little Dipper- acne, hello?

Problem Skin- skin with zits galore

Combo skin- zits on chin

bumps- bumps that are ZITS!

I love your sense of humor, Cali! I'll add to your zitty sense of humor...

Blackheads = manholes

Lots of blackheads on a *really* greasy face = La Brea Tar Pits
