My Skin Feels Dry But I Am Still Getting Spots. What’s Going On?

There are two reasons why your skin feels dry but develops spots; one is the use of skin care that is inappropriate for your skin type and the second is down to hormones.

Whether you have problematic skin or naturally dry skin, using products that are too harsh and aggressive will cause an imbalance within the skin instead of treating the root cause, forcing the sebaceous glands to overcompensate for this excessive dryness by producing more oil which blocks the pores and leads to breakouts.

Hormones also trigger a higher rate of oil production which can overwhelm the surface of the skin and lead to an onset of blocked pores, blemishes and inflammation.
