Oily & Dry Problem Skin
If you tend to suffer with regular breakouts, blackheads and congested skin, these are the products that would be most suited to your skin.
If the difference between your skin isn’t very dramatic, for example your skin is oily but your cheeks can get a little tight after cleansing rather than being flaky, select the products for oily skin.
If you have acne- Acne is a medical condition, acne often requires medical treatment. A good skincare routine is important and can help improve the condition of your skin and support the treatment prescribed by a medical professional but I do recommend seeking professional advise, ask at your Dr surgery if any of the practitioners specialise in skin issues.
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.
The products are hyperlinked but there is also a list of each product at the end.
Essential Cleanser - First Cleanse Oil This cleanser can be used once or twice a day to thoroughly cleanse your skin without drying it out, it's also the perfect cleanser to use before the chemical exfoliators.
Toner - Revitalising Ginseng Toner This toner will help balance your skin's PH after cleansing, as your skin is prone to dryness start using just once a day, advance to twice a day if needed.
A moisturiser twice a day is essential, without it the skin creates too much oil which then clogs the pores.
Day & night moisturiser - Azulene Moisturiser use this on the oily areas. Oily skin needs moisturising to prevent dehydration.
It may seem unusual to use two different moisturisers but it's best to treat your individual skin types. Dry skin lacks oil which is why products designed for dry skin contain more nourishing ingredients, products designed for oily skin contain less 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 is the best protection against ageing
The reason I recommend the two is because the salicylic acid works within the pores to clear any blockages while the lactic acid increases moisture within the skin.
Avoid using any facial scrubs or sonic brushes when using these or it could cause a breakout, these provide enough exfoliation.
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.
You may notice I haven't listed any of our acid serums, cleanser or moisturisers, this is because when it comes to acids less is more and it's unlikely you'd need more. If you would rather not use a chemical exfoliator but still want to use acids, you could use an acid cleanser or serum/moisturiser instead.
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.
