Combination Oily & Dry Skin with Rosacea
Here are the products I'd recommend for your skin complaint and skin type. Please note that you DO NOT need to buy everything I’ve listed, if you’re happy with your skincare routine and just need one product that’s fine, if you need a full routine then this list is suitable for you. You can also refer back to this page should you wish to add more Bravura London products to your routine.
Here are the products I tend to recommend for rosacea but rosacea is a tricky condition and not everyone can tolerate our products. If you've reacted to a lot of products in the past, I'd recommend you visit a skin counter where you can patch test products rather than buying online.
HERE is my guide on cleansing, if you have the time I'd recommend reading it, it will help you understand the products I've recommended and will help you get the best out of your cleansing routine.
Second/morning Cleanse - Azulene Cleansing Milk If you would prefer to use only 1 cleanser, the First Cleanse listed above can be used twice. Using two cleansers means that you get the benefit of more active ingredients.
Toner - Revitalising Ginseng Toner To help balance your skin’s PH after cleansing. Start by using once a day increasing to twice a day if your skin can tolerate it.
Serum - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Serums are an excellent way to boost hydration in the skin, our simple and oil free Hyaluronic Acid Serum is perfect for all skintypes but won’t aggravate spotty skin. This can be used twice a day under your moisturiser.
Moisturiser Azulene Moisturiser. This moisturiser can be used in the morning and evening. If your dry patches are very dry this moisturiser may not be nourishing enough and would need to be used alongside a facial oil.
We don't specialise in SPF's or eye creams and so we don't have any in our range, if you have a favourite then continue use. Using an SPF product daily the best protection against ageing, when you're out in strong sun be sure to wear an SPF of at least 30 and re-apply every 2 hours, it's the UVA in the suns rays which is always present, even in the winter that causes ageing in our skin.
Treatment - I'd recommend both the lactic acid and the salicylic acid, use the lactic acid on the dry areas and the salicylic acid on the oily areas, use every 3 days, for example Monday, Thursday, Sunday and so on. Avoid using any facial scrubs or sonic brushes when using these or it could cause a breakout, these provide enough exfoliation. If you have any broken capillaries (little veins) avoid these when using the exfoliators.
For best results I recommend applying the acids with our chemical peel brush, this gives a more even finish and also ensures that you don’t waste any of the product as it doesn’t absorb the product.
I know that sounds like a lot, this is a full skincare regime, which is needed to get the skin in great condition. You don't have to use all Bravura products to get results, as long as you cleanse, tone and moisturise with suitable products you can simple choose what you need from the list above.
If you also have breakouts you may also want to consider supplements which can help control hormonal breakouts, HERE is a guide I've written on the subject.
Please also remember that anything that touches your skin needs to be clean, be sure to only use clean face cloths and face towels, change your pillow case once a week and if you use make-up brushes, try cleaning them after each use but at the minimum, they should be cleansed once a week.
Disclaimer – I’m happy to give recommendations for products but can’t offer any guarantees that these will work for your skin. Although we have a lot of positive feedback from customers, everyone is different, obviously I can’t take in to account any allergies or sensitivities you may have which is why I recommend you read the ingredients list for all products I recommend. To get great results you MUST cleanse, tone and moisturise daily, no matter what treatment you use, without a good daily skincare routine, you won’t get the best results.
