- Question: Hello, I am 55 and in the last year my skin has drastically changed. Before menopause, my skin was normal, no visible pores, but with a few blackheads and an occasion breakout. Now I have oily skin, flakey, peeling skin, sun damage, loss of firmness, wrinkles, milia, and a lot of blackheads. For a year I used Rodan and Fields Redefine and Reverse, although it was helping with the firmness, my blackheads became much worse and it did not help with my dark spots. I switched to Paula's choice (Clinical Retinal every three nights and AHA twice a day, but not with the retinal) in September, but now my skin is sensitive, stays red, and burns whenever I apply the moisturizer (Skin Perfecting). I am ready for a change. I really need help. I have been looking at the SkinMedica, Skinceuticals Adult Acne, Neocutis, and Obagi. What do you recommend? Thank you.
Thank you for reaching out to us. It appears that your skin has been comprised, you need to rebuild your skin barrier right now. And just use Gentle Soothing products. I would recommend the brand Eminence, TheirStone Crop Cleansing Oil. for your cleanser, I would follow with theirStone Crop Hydrating Mist, as your treatment product their Calm Skin Arnica Booster-Serum for your moisturizer I would recommend their Calm Skin Chamomile Moisturizer I would recommend this masque their Calm skin Arnica Masque to apply once or twice a week. Use these products for now and once you get your skin back to normal , from there you can up your regimen. I hope this helps, have a nice day !Thank you for making Dermstore your #1 source for all things beauty!
