I tend to have very sensitive skin when it comes to using toners and heavy cleansers, but typically my skin is very dry without makeup on ,with makeup my skin tends to go oily on t zone area but patchy I surrounding areas, I have tried more matte finish foundation but I can’t seem to find one that doesn’t break down from oils .is my skin telling me not to use foundation??
Hey @shannaraking have you tried a cleansing balm or oil based cleanser? Could be the cleansing that’s your problem. I’ve read that by using drying cleansers we then often prompt our skin to both dry out but then also over produce oil to compensate. I found switching to a cleansing balm and also using Hyaluronic Acid as a base before make-up helped my skin greatly. I also just use a mineral powder foundation now to keep things matte.
I’ve been using Eve Lom for my cleanser which can be pricey but hear the new Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm is great too!
