Answer

Thank-you so much for your enquiry. I can understand your frustration and I hope that this advice will help you. I would say that this is where the difference comes in between using a cosmetic product versus a cosmeceutical product. The mere fact that you are so sensitive and are then oily on top of this, could be a clear indication that your skin’s barrier function is impaired, so your skin is just not working properly and can’t protect you properly. You need to use products that are active with ingredients that are going to restore your skin’s barrier and get your sebaceous (oil glands) under control. Lamelle’s Clarity range with Acnevelle tablets is a great option, as is Nimue’s Problematic Skin Range. I would really suggest that you have a proper skin analysis at a medical aesthetic centre with a qualified medical aesthetic therapist or Doctor and they can have an indepth look at what is happening with your skin and they can give you the best possible advice. There is no point in spending your money on products that don’t give you the results that you need.

Is it going to damage my skin and have negative consequences later in life?
