In the beginning, I used to only use facial soap to wash my face. After going for facial sessions, it hasn't really seemed to help, except for the fact that my blackheads are periodically being removed and pimples squeezed. The lady who does my facials told me to get some products. So now, I'm using a facial wash, cleanser, toner and moisturizer [for oily and combination (sensitive) skin, which I have]; a clay mask which I use twice a week; and an exfoliator which I use once a week. My skin seems to be getting better, but not much. I have used all these products for a couple of months now.
Yesterday, when I went for my facial, the lady told me to get a purifying mask as well. I don't know about all of you, but it seems to me that I'm already using enough products! It's horrible because most of my friends just wash their faces twice a day and they have radiant skin.
So my question is: do these products really help? If not, what else can I do to help improve my skin condition?
I do exercise, and I drink plenty of water. I eat my vegetables and try to avoid fried foods. I don't touch my face and I make sure my hair is always pulled back away from my face. But yet I don't understand why my skin doesn't seem to be improving as much as I want it to be... It's terribly frustrating! Help, anyone?
Another quick question: Would working in a, let's say, fast-food restaurant compared to a yoghurt shop have any difference for my face? I'm thinking of switching jobs but I'm wary of places that deal with oily food...
Thanks in advance for your help!
