- Get your priorities straight, and fix ‘the tablecloth’ first
- Damaged skin ages faster
- Cleanse and moisturize without fail
First things first
The truth is that damaged skin ages faster so set your priorities straight and lay the right foundations for long term better skin.
1. Use the right product
The first step to clearing up acne and oily skin problems is to cleanse, using the right product, adapted to sensitive, oily skin.
2. Cleanse morning and night
A physiological cleanser for your skin type is key. You can work with anti-aging formulas into your regime post cleansing but never skip this first step - remove the make-up and grime from the day!
3. Keep moisturizing
Giving your skin its daily dose of hydration is essential for healthy, clear skin. Many acne sufferers wrongly believe that oily skin needs to be ‘dried’ out and stripped of its oil, but that is a misconception. This attitude will only create a rebound effect, producing even more oil.
