Question: Irritation And Oily

My face get really irritated when I wash it more than twice a day and its very oily as well and I tried using facial wipes and they don't help and I currently use garnier daily moisturiser and I wash it with both garnier pure 3in1 and garnier smoothing face wash.

Answer

It sounds to me like you are perhaps trying to get your oiliness under control and you are possibly using cleansers that are just too soapy and therefore too harsh for your skin. The problem with doing this, is that you will damage your skin’s barrier, this in turn causes your skin to become more sensitive, and too dry from the cleanser and this in turn makes the oil worse. So first things first, we need to get you onto product that will cleanse your skin without causing damage and sensitivity and then we also need to get your skin’s barrier restored and get your skin functioning properly so that you don’t have to try and deal with this vicious cycle all the time. I highly recommend you get yourself Lamelle’s Serra Cleasing Gel to use as your daily cleanser and also the Restore Cream to use as a temporary moisturiser until your skin is less irritated. Then we can start working on the other issues that bother you about your skin. Please also ensure that you are using a good facial SPF every single day.
