Sensitive skin with blackheads

Question: Hi- I’m a 32 year old woman with dry and sensitive skin. I have blackheads around my nose and uneven texture on my forehead and chin. Typical “gentle” AHAs and BHAs either sting, burn, peel, or give me closed comedones! Cerave products give me little bumps on my forehead. I feel like I am drying out my skin with products that unclog pores or exfoliate- and when I take a break to heal the skin barrier my skin just gets worse! I now only using Olay Complete Sensitive Moiturizer with SPF (2x/day) and Cetaphil gentle face wash at night. My blackheads are worse than ever! And I keep breaking out around my chin Any advice on a serum, exfoliant, or moisturizer that will help keep more pores clean but won’t anger my skin?? Thanks!
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend going into a reputable Spa in your area for a deep cleansing facial, that way your skin will be perfectly cleansed and from there you can purchase the right products that are recommended to you from your Esthetician. I really feel that a facial right now would benefit you better then recommending products that would not necessarily work for you.

Hope this helps, have a nice day !
