Cleansing Sensitive Acne Prone Skin

by Niki

Hi, this is me again! It's more than 70 days that I have been eating a lot more healthy food than before and i have seen the results! my skin is somehow cleared but still I have some pimples on my face!

I have been applying sweet almond oil regularly to my face as a moisturiser and it has reduced it's oil,but,the problem I've always had is skin gets flaky and I think it shoudn't be like this!when I scrub it,it becomes red and before it gets better,it becomes flaky again! would it be ok if I wait for a while? I'm afraid to use a moisturiser because my skin was good before I apply anything to it,I want my good skin back!Is scrubbing a necessary thing for the skin? do you scrub your face once a week? Is your skin like mine? please tell me what to do,I need your help.

Thanks a lot,

Hello Niki, thanks so much for your update. Congratulations on 70 days of eating healthier! I am so glad to hear that you are having some success clearing up your skin.

In answer to your question, it is definitely not necessary to scrub your sensitive skin, in fact that can make things worse. Gentle is better! I sometimes have tried to use a facecloth for my skin and it would break out afterwards. In fact the only way I can get a good scrub without breaking out is to use a ***z-cleure-hypoallergenic-facial-scrub.shtml*** .

There are many ways you can cleanse your skin, and you'll have to see what works best for you.

For example, there are many natural foods that can provide a gentle cleansing and exfoliation without being abrasive. Yogurt is one example, or even a banana, papaya or other type of fruit.

I have heard some people use no facial products or even water for a while, which I don't recommend, but it works for some people. Some people cleanse with oil and that works for them.

I have found that the Cleure
***z-cleure-acne-skin-care.shtml*** system works well to gently cleanse sensitive skin without irritation, and without making your skin more oily. Many people with acne have found relief with these products.

You may need to continue to experiment to find the best ways of cleansing your skin that work for you. Just be sure to test everything first on the inside of your elbow or wrist, before applying anything to your face. I hope this is helpful, and please continue to let us know how you are doing! It is always inspiring to hear success stories.
