My skin has switched to crazy-mode and I'm in complete despair at the moment. We are talking about extremely dry cheeks (sometimes it feels like I can't move my face... or maybe someone has injected me with botox without me noticing?) combined with ugly spots in horrible places. Although my face has always been prone to redness, it still looks good (if we ignore the spots), and there are no signs of ageing. I have been given some tips from people who know something about these things, and I thought I'd share them with you.
- use facial soap/cleanser only once (in the evening). In the morning water is more than sufficient. The face should be clean at this point of the day anyway.
- avoid all "extra" products, including clarifying lotion and serums. They might be too strong for sensitive skin.
- almost any moisturiser will do (even cheap ones), but it has to be mild.
- drink plenty of water.
- avoid foods that are known to affect your skin (in my case it's alcohol and probably chocolate)
- avoid using make-up
