i need a cleanser! HELP ~ should i exfoliant?

Recommended Posts

ive checked my product bag and ive noticed i have aLOT of cleansers..

i have alot of neutroegna cleansers that contain 0.5 SA , 1 is a Cleanser/MASK with no sa or bp. i have a mask with AHA and SA. i have cetaphil gentle cleanser and st.ives sensitive skin exfoilant beads.

i dont know waht to use :[[ i wake up with oily skin but its sensitive. and ive heard that people with oily skin need regular exfoliation ( 2-3 weeks ) or my pores will clog or should i use a scrub everyday? ive use cetpahil in the past and i didnt get the "clean" feeling , i was wondering what gives you the best clean feeling without irriation that i can buy at the store.

( o yea and im thnking about getting proactive i seen lindsy lohan and im getting convinced :D )

I have extra sensitive skin too, i dont think you can exfoliate so frequent if you have sensitive skin, currently i exfoliate once a week with baking soda, it is mild and my skin could stand it....

IF YOU have acne it is very important to exfoliate. The oil causes dead skin to stick to the surface and grow the p.acnes bacteria and then clog your pores.

I would reccomend using a cleanser that would allow for daily exfoliation without the irritation. IMO, Garnier Pure Pore Deep Scrub Gel, Clean&CLear Blackhead clearing scrub, and St. Ives Medicated Apricot Sruc are the best. Follow with toner that contains glycolic acid, and SA acid and witch hazel is good too.
