How To Combat Breakouts And Sensitive Skin Together
Posted by Stephanie Orr in Skin Care
When it comes to battling the breakout of all breakouts combined with the effects of dry to sensitive skin, I think I can speak on behalf of the majority of problem skin sufferers when I say that there’s not a lot of choice to combat both concerns at once.
As a sky high acne sufferer throughout my teenage years and a regular breakout and blemish sufferer to this date, I’ve made it my mission to hunt down a skin care routine which has the capability to clear my complexion without causing any irritation to my overly sensitive skin.
Over the years I’ve found that one of the most common problems with acne products is that they can quite often be too harsh for the skin, resulting in dryness, peeling, redness and raw skin which can take just as much time to clear up as the initial breakout.
Stripped Skincare are dedicated to putting an end to this problem with their naturally sourced acne range which is free from chemicals, synthetics or potentially harmful ingredients and tailored to the needs of dry, sensitive and oily skin.
I put their 4 step skin care range to the test in a bid to rescue my skin and conquer my mission of finding a no nonsense skin friendly acne range and I have to say I was blown away by the results.
Lavender Eye Make Up Remover
Is a skin care brand really a skin care brand without the luxury of an eye makeup remover? Stripped Skincare have covered all areas with their Lavender Eye Make Up Remover, £8 which is in the form of a gentle eye oil that removes all eye makeup including waterproof mascara in just a couple of swift sweeps.
Calendula And Mandarin Hot Cloth Cleanser
Treat your skin to a comforting cleanse with Stripped Skincare's Calendula And Mandarin Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil, £15 which contains 8 organic oils including Organic Frankincense Essential Oil, Organic Rosemary Essential Oil and Organic Jojoba Oil to improve elasticity whilst breaking down congestion and sebum in the skin.
Spearmint And Lemon Bamboo Exfoliator
Exfoliating sensitive skin which is prone to breakouts can often be a challenge in itself, but Stripped Skincare have captured the best of both worlds with their Spearmint And Lemon Bamboo Exfoliator, £12 which is formulated with 7 oils and Bamboo Powder to treat inflammation, dryness, alleviate acne and repair the appearance of damaged skin and scars, without leaving your skin feeling vulnerable afterwards.
Rosehip And Mandarin Moisturiser
Incorporating the use of a moisturising oil onto a complexion which is prominently oily is something which quite naturally has some controversy attached to it, after all adding more oil to your skin will just make it worse right? Wrong! Depending on the type of oil you use it could just be the making of your skin! I honestly think I've found my secret skin care weapon with Stripped Skincare's Rosehip And Mandarin Moisturiser, £16 includes 6 carrier oils and 4 essential oils and is rich in antioxidants and anti - bacterial properties to naturally clear blemishes and moisturise skin without leaving an oily residue.
