I need help with my skin-care routine. i have reached my 30s and unfortunately none of the products i used earlier are working on my skin.
I have a combination skin which is not too sensitive, cheeks can get dry sometimes and funnily even my t-zone acts crazy - sometimes oily, sometimes dry. (Wot the hell is wrong !) i see some acne on my cheeks (tho cheeks are normal to dry), sometimes forehead, nose , sebum development on my chin.
ok basically everything is going wrong.
I usually follow the CTM process in the night.Cleanser
- i have used neutrogena foaming cleanser, clarins "some" cleanser -- i think both dried my skin coz in the morning i saw oil build up in my t-zone area. so i have changed it to a LUSH product which has some oils, rice vinegar etc. sage oil, etc. i hv noticed atleast its not drying my skin and i dont hv oil build up. BUT this product costs 600 bucks! i saw people mention the OCM method. i want to try that so I want to know which oils to use (EVOO + castor only cold pressed??? or any other coz cold pressed products are difficult to find here) also i saw people having some problems with it as well -like sebum, drying, etc. so please suggest an everyday use cleanser.Toner
- im using the Clinique clarifying # 3 - well, its not doing anything to my skin since 2 years. it has not stopped blackheads, whiteheads or acne. Please suggest a good (not overdrying) toner (is body shop tea tree toner good?)
- i hv atleast 3-4 moisturizers on my shelf. i wonder if they even help my skin. there is no glow or anything special happening. currently im using ponds age defying
[i think im going to use the rest of my moisturizers on my legs & feet
so guys, you have heard me out, please help me find some good (not too expensive) products which will balance the oil, reduce blackheads, whiteheads and bring in some glow to this 30 year "old & growing" face
Oh btw, we have ponds, clinique, body shop products here.
Thank you for reading.
