You may have to be a bit of a detective to see if you can pinpoint what is happening to just one side of your face.
If you have breakouts or bumps on one side of the face you may want to think about if you are consciously or unconsciously touching or picking at your face on that side. Do you lean your face in your hand on that side. Do you use a cell phone or a regular phone on that side of your body? Those may be dirty so keep them clean before they touch your face. Make sure your hands are clean before touching your face and wash your hands frequently or use a hand sanitizer.

Do you regularly exfoliate your skin or do at home peels with products you can buy at the drugstore? Your skin cell turnover can slowdown as you get older so many people add exfoliation to their daily and weekly skin care routine. Do you use a chemical exfoliant like a well formulated BHA or AHA product or do you go for a mechanical exfoliation of dead skin cells using a washcloth, facial brush, or a microdermabrasion cream?
Do you have chemical peels done at a salon or dermatologist's office? This time of the year may be a good time to consider a professional peel because you do have to protect your skin from sun exposure when you are exfoliating your skin.
