Re: Question

You could try an AHA, such as glycolic acid, to exfoliate or maybe one of those cleansers with the little beads in them (don't know how effective the beads are tho). And how strong what you use will determine how often you exfoliate. I use DDF's exfoliating glycolic acid wash 7% that I wash with in the mornings everyday. It did cause an initial breakout for the first 3 weeks where my bumps were larger, redder, and more painful than usual. But they also went away much quicker than usual and it has improved my skin quality overall somewhat. Though it was a bit expensive, like $25 for 8.5 ounces, about the size of a typical body wash i guess.

And for miami, I don't know about you but when I'm in humid weather my skin looks and feels more oily. So I try to rinse my face with water more often. And make sure you use a good sunscreen and reapply throughout the day. Neutrogena's Ultra-Sheer dry touch spf 30 sunscreeen doesn't make my skin feel greasy at all, even in the summer :D
