    You were probably correct about the change in weather having an effect. It's either not doing enough for you right now, something in it is irritating your skin or you might consider getting an exfoliator. If it's just dryness, the exfoliator will make the product you're using absorb better. Could make it worse if it's an irritation issue, though.

    IDK....it depends on the product, what you have used before and how sensitive your skin is.

    I used tazarotene (a strong, prescription retinoid, similar to retin-a) for years and benzoyl peroxide besides that, so all the products I use now are incredibly gentle by comparison. I didnt start a whole new routine at once, just gradually trying new things, but I dont see the issue as long as its not too harsh. Of course, it can all depend on your skin and its sensitivity.

    The stuff I have used did not give me initial breakouts. It soothes my skin. Inflamed acne is not "purging". The pores are irritated and there is an infection. I suppose whiteheads/black heads could be purging of clogged pores, but generally I don't think a breakout is a good sign.
    What I have learned over the years is that harsh products are generally not good in the long-run, and moisturizing is underrated for soothing inflamed breakouts. Products with active ingredients (ie AHAs, BHAs, retinols) should be formulated to be as gentle as possible (ie no alcohol is a good sign), and you dont want to layer too many at a time, true. Anything like that, you may want to "build up" over time.

    You dont have to do a double anything. If you wear makeup, you may simply want to use a remover before washing. I mainly only do that when I wear eye makeup or heavier foundation. Otherwise, one facewash is enough.

    IDK if that helps any.

    I pretty much use the Reddit's Asian Beauty holy grail threads for tips. I can't add more value than that since I try to buy cruelty free, and that is difficult to find.

    Has anybody ever brought anything from Besame Cosmetics? I think their vintage veneer is super cute and I'm curious about it's mascara cake and lipsticks.

    For those who like winged or "cat eye" eyeliner, this seems promising:

    Funniest tramp stamp I've ever seen was on this ESTP guy who texted me unsolicited photos of his wiener, yrs ago.
