Sensitive, Oily, and Acne Prone

Question: Hi, I have had acne since I was in high school and I am now 32 years old with very oily skin and hormonal acne around my mouth/chin. I also have very sensitive skin and eczema. I’ve gone to a dermatologist and they have prescribed Differin gel for its low percentage of retinol for my sensitive skin. Nothing seems to work! I am looking for a complete skincare system for my very sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. Thanks!
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the brand Avene, I have put together a regimen for you:Step 1) Oil-free Gel Cleanser followed by their Gentle Toning LotionI would recomend their Gentle Exfoliating Gel to use periodicallyStep 2) Mattifying Fluid Step 3)Cleanance MAT Mattifying EmulsionIt would be nice to masque periodically their Cleanance Mask would benefit your skin , you could use this as a spot treatment as well. I hope this helps, have a nice day! Cyndee, Dermstore Esthetician
