Q: I'm 24-years-old and for the past 5 years have had nothing but problems with my skin since having my 3 children. I have no idea what skin type I am, so I never know where to start. I have really dehydrated skin with fine lines on my forehead and cheeks and I suffer with oiliness.
But I also have dry patches around my nose, I suffer with breakouts and have some scarring. It's just so dull and horrid. I've started using Elemis which I'm noticing a difference with, but would really like to know exactly what products I should be using on my confused skin.
Alison: To me, your skin's crying out for our Judith Williams Phytomineral range.
As you've said you have three children and you're only 24 so you must be quite exhausted! Running around after little kids is very tiring. You've described to me a stressed and exhausted skin type, which is why it's coming up unbalanced and why you're having difficulties with it.
I would recommend using the Cleansing Milk, Facial Serum and an All-in-One Day and Night Cream, which you can apply to your face, neck and eyes. It's simple, quick and effective so I think it would be perfect for you and your daily routine. It should also give your skin back its healthy-looking rosy glow.
Also, when you have time, it would really make a difference if you used a good exfoliant and cleanser in the shower and one which is quick and easy is Micro Cleanse from Alpha-H. It should help with your dry skin and blackheads plus, you can apply it while your conditioner is on in the shower – easy! It should also help your skin look fresh and bright again.
