- Question: I'm 22 and have common episodes of breakouts, oily skin, and sometimes dry skin with acne scaring from years of acne in the past. I'm ready to start following a skin care routine but there are millions of products on the market with just as many routines. Can you please provide a sample skin care routine top to bottom that someone can follow on a daily basis (morning and night) to help curb breakouts, get clear and younger looking skin, reduce my aging looks and scares. I've read this article posted on your blog: dermstore.com/blog/in-what-order-do-i-apply-my-skin-care-products-infographic/ but the issue is that there are no links to specific products. If you can put together a list of skin care products that are at least semi-safe and non-toxic that I can buy on this website that fit the routine in your article I would proceed to purchase today! I just don't want to buy the wrong items and mess up the routine such as doing double exfoliation or buying a product that's too oily and contributes to more breakouts. I understand that a response from Dermstore will not constituent a recommendation for treatment or to manage any medical/surgical condition and will be used exclusively for educational purposes. Thanks!
Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the brand Bioderma, their Sebium Routine Kit will be a great way for you to start and to get introduced to the brand . I would add their Sebium Exfoliating Gel to cleanse with 2-3 times a week to help with your skin regimen. I would follow with the Sebium Lotion after every cleanse and apply the Sebium Mat control on top. All of these products are designed to help with your skincare concerns. I hope this helps, have a nice day! Cyndee, Dermstore Esthetician
