  • I use Aveeno bath treatment, it works wonders! Then I use Eucerin ( a really thick lotion) and that helps too.

  • Aveeno is awesome stuff! We used the bath soap and lotion for my kids since they had really sensitive skin. Try not to take scorching hot showers and see if showering every other day helps. Also, you might try rinsing your laundry in the washer 2 times instead of once. You could have developed an allergy to your soap. Maybe you could try something that is dye-free and fragrance-free.

  • I am very strong advocate of using Proactiv. My skin was really bad and I tried all of the instore products and out of desperation I ordered Proactiv and have never loved my skin more. Try it you will never use anything else.

  • All very good info mine is this usually if your skin is breaking out its from something on the inside comming out. Try cleansing with Clean Start or using a probiotic to fight the bacteria inside you off. check my site from the bottom of my profile page.
