Need a new skin care regime!

Hey everyone. So I sort of have oily skin, but at other times dry. I don't really get pimples (sometimes under the skin), but I do suffer from black heads and bumps on my forehead. I currently use Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Moisture Cushion as a moisturizer in the morning at night. I'm looking for new makeup remover, face wash, and cleanser. I do have sensitive skin, but really want to improve the feel of it. I want smooth skin, with smaller pores... I may be asking for a lot, but help! 🙂

Re: Need a new skin care regime!



I think you would benefit greatly by incorporating regular exfoliation into your routine.  Skin texture (like what you describe) is most impacted by exfoliation than any other product I think.  The little bumps and black heads are very often a result of dead skin cells that build up instead of shedding.  Exfoliation gets rid of them and this in turn helps your other topical products sink in and work better.


Use a chemical exfoliant rather than a physical one.  I highly recommend Dr. Dennis Gross alpha/beta peel pads.  After you cleanse at night, follow up with exfoliation and then a serum and moisturizer.  I would do this once or twice a week to begin with.  See how you like it and then you can adjust the schedule if you so choose...
