I break out in pimples that take forever to go away

I have the same problem. Orthotricyclin birth control pills used to work wonders for me but they made me so damn bitchy that I had to stop taking them.

Are you having acne? I have used dove for years, since I was a pre-teen. I didn't deal with acne growing up, it may be family genes that helped with that too, no one on my mother's side ever had to deal with pimples.

Are you through menopause? (Not going to assume you are, i'm not much younger and I'm not )

Honestly I would go talk to a dermatologist.
I have a suspicion this is very common at this juncture of your life.

Wgwn I was a teen I used to break out really bad. Ivory soap would work wonders. The bas side to it my skin would get dry. So I had to usw a.moisturizer.

cool thanks!  The mosturizer didn't make your skin oily or add to the problem?

I'm post menopause and you are probably right about going to a dermatologist.

Neutrogena rapid relief. Use 1-2 times daily. Consider a dermatologist.

It's definitely hormonal.
