Q: I have recently had a baby and since the birth I have noticed a difference in my skin. I previously had oily skin, which has now turned dry in places and can be very sensitive (sometimes itchy with red patches).
I'm currently using Decleor products for oily/combination skin, which isn't working as effectively as it used to. I would be extremely grateful if you could suggest products from the Decleor range that would be more suitable for my present skin type.
Alison: I can quite understand what has happened and this is very normal after pregnancy. What you must bear in mind, is that after having a baby it takes a little while for your skin to re-adjust.
If you care for your skin for how it appears to be now, then you are probably using products that are too harsh. So instead you should treat it as a sensitive skin type and allow it to balance back out, which it should do in time.
In terms of your Aromessence, you should either be on the Rose D'Orient for sensitive skin if your skin is feeling really irritated, or the Neroli if it's more unbalanced. Then for a moisturiser I would recommend the Decleor Hydra Floral and I would also suggest the Soothing Emulsion for a speedy routine, or the Hydrating Cleanser & Toner if you have more time.
Keep to this simple routine and your skin should feel much more comfortable within about a week's time.
