We’ve all gotten advice for our skin woes, read articles online for tips to deal with skin sensitivity and even tried to come up with routines on our own that would solve our skin problems. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t and sometimes they just make things worse. Based on seasonal and hormonal changes, it can be quite the challenge to find something that works all year round.
If you’ve got oily and sensitive skin, you’re in luck. Today, I’m sharing with you my ultimate skincare routine for oily and sensitive skin, simply because that’s the kind of skin I have (with gaping pores too, no joke) and because it is way too difficult to find something that’s been as effective as what I have been using for the past couple of years. This routine – with specific products that I use – reduces breakouts, prevents whiteheads from forming and speeds up the clearing of blemishes.
Step 1: Remove makeup Using a Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil and a Sonic Cleansing Tool.
Oil-based cleansing oils work wonders, if you haven’t tried them yet. I’ve stuck to the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil for years and when the brand launched the Ultime8, I never looked back. Take 2 pumps of the cleansing oil and apply it all over your dry face. Then go all over your face for 1 minute with the Clarisonic Mia (video tutorial by Deb at Beauty Heaven here) to make sure you break down the gunk stuck in your pores, so that it can be removed easily in the next few steps.
