I find double cream cleansing really balancing and softening for uneven skin, which i suffered from. That and chemical exfoliants - BHA (salicylic acid)works best for me, especially as I can get under skin type breakouts. I couple BHA products with a light oil over top once absorbed and a good thick workhorse (not actives) moisturiser.
I am pregnant so a combination of hormones and tiredness means my skin is suffering again. But a few days of consistent gentle care gives noticeable improvement
Thank you. I definitely need to start drinking more water but I have a healthy diet generally. I exfoliate about once a week and have started with a night cream and day cream. My skin has always been quite soft without moisturisation but the skin has never been smooth if that makes sense. Spots arent my main concern though but always have one or two. I have a few scars from spots as a teen. Thanks for suggestions so far.
I have really soft smooth skin and I'm not sure why, I eat quite a lot of sugar but also fruit, I cleanse with a creamy cleanser and cotton wool (never a face wash) and I use a thick moisturizer. At the moment I'm using Astral. But as a family non of us (brothers and sisters) had spots or acne so I'm guessing genes and good skin care help.
