Sensitive skin with breakouts![ Edited ]
Help! I am breaking out like crazy! I have small bumps all over my face and a few that slowly keep developing into full blown angry red pimples. I have never had breakouts like this before in my life. My skin is very sensitive, so anytime I use acne medicated skincare products, my face and eyes swell up and become one big rash. Last time I tried Clinique's Acne Solutions, I had to go to the doctor to get a shot just to get the swelling to go down.
So, are there any products I can use for my acne ridden sensitive skin? I am desperate! Thank you.
Sounds like we have the same skin type. I had a very similar reaction to benzyl peroxide. I think I have tried almost every acne product on the market. Most are too harsh for my skin. However, the Dr. Brandt Pores No More line of products has worked very well for me. It gently clears up the acne without over-drying, and it does not make my sensitive skin turn red. I love the Pore Thing solution and the Anti-aging mattifying lotion (even if you don't need anti-aging effects, this product is the best for clearing up my acne).
You can try a little sample on your wrist or forearm to watch for an allergic response before you apply new products on your face.
Good luck to you!
