Skincare - post birth oily skin, can you give me your skincare recommendations?(2 Posts)
Hi, apologies if this is in the wrong place but I'm looking for some skincare help please.
I gave birth 5 weeks ago, and towards the end of the pregnancy I started getting very oily skin, leading to pimples and blackheads on my face, neck and chest.
I wash my face etc everyday morning and night, usually with the body shops seaweed gel cleanser or boots own cucumber face wash, and use keilhs ultra face cream or bobbi browns vitamin base cream to moisturise. However I believe my hormones are causing the problem and my previous routine is not working for me now after years of fairly clear skin, so I need some recommendations on keeping on top of the blocked pores please.
If possible, I'd like to keep costs down as I am off work. I have already tried the boots tea tree range earlier in the week but haven't seen any improvement send help!
