Clarifying Lotion Step 2 Combination Oily

Question

I have been using Clinique 3 step combination oily for a year and a half and recently found that the clarifying lotion is burning my skin a lot and drying it out completely. I want to change it and use the Neutrogena alcohol free toner in place of my clarifying lotion. Will that be a better option for me? I’m getting a lot of redness on my cheeks now and a burning sensation I’m 25 years old Indian with fair and sensitive skin.

Answer

Thank you for your question. I think you are definately on the right track trying to change your toner, as alcohol will most certainly cause this issue you are having. If I may also suggest that you, especially with your skin type and the fact that you already sensitive… PLEASE use a very good facial sunblock. Fair, Indian skin with sensitivity is a recipe for hyperpigmentation and once you have that problem, you are really not going to be happy. I highly reccommend Heliocare SPF 50 to all my patients. Or at least just find a very good high SPF products that is not going to sensitize you even further.

Good day Dr. I developed dark marks around my mouth in December and tried using everything but they wouldn’t go away,I then went to the pharmacy where the gentleman there mixed persivate with aqueous cream and told me to use it,I used it and they went away however I’m worried about the effect it will have on my skin,I haven’t stopped using it. Is it going to damage my skin and have negative consequences later in life?
