I am very thankful to all wiseshe readers for liking my product reviews. One of the readers Rentu asked me to share about my Holy Grail products for oily and sensitive skin. So below I am going to discuss about sensitive skin / oily skin and my daily skin care routine.
Sensitive skin is very hard to deal with and same is with the oily skin. Though having oily skin has its own set of benefits like wrinkles would not be an early problem for those with oily skin. Sensitive skin is very delicate to handle and using any other products can only worsen your situation.
Skin may be of any type but it requires 4 main stages of care namely cleansing, toning, scrubbing and moisturizing to keep skin healthy and glowing. Now we are going to discuss each in detail.
1) Cleanser for oily skin cleansing your skin is the first step to achieve beautiful skin as it removes dirt, oil, debris from your skin. Choosing proper cleanser or face wash is very important. For sensitive skin the main ingredients to look out in a product are Tea Tree oil , Neem, Tulsi, turmeric, Lemon ( sensitive skin ones should try a test patch as lemon may sometimes react due to its acidic nature) Aloe vera, sandalwood, clove etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.. all this ingredients are anti-bacterial ,antiseptic in nature and are naturally known to heal your skin. You can even go for soap free cleansers and ones which do not dries out your skin completely.
My product recommendation sensitive/oily skin Fab India Tea Tree face wash .This is one of the medicated face washes suggested by my dermatologist.
2) Toner for sensitive skin This is also an essential part of your skin care routine because as skin ages the pores of skin are more and more visible and it generally happens more with oily skin. Choose toner which are alcohol free and contains the ingredients as suggested above, this would help in minimizing your pores and cleanses the remains if there are any. I remember when I started using toner none of the products in the market suited me, I used to feel that this are making my skin more oily.. in this case go with rose water this is the best toner and best refreshing product for oily and sensitive skin.

3) Scrub for sensitive skin scrubbing your skin is very essential as it helps in removing dead skin, blackheads and whiteheads. But for sensitive skin you have to be more careful as little rubbing can cause acne, reddishness in your skin. For scrubbing sensitive skin you have to take extra care while selecting the product. Go for very mild scrubs which have very small granules and if gel based with antiseptic ingredients would be an added advantage. Start scrubbing very slowly and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t over do it.. just scrub for 3-4 minutes very lightly once or twice a week this will keep your skin healthy and clean.

4) Moisturizer for oily skin At times we can neglect the toning or scrubbing part but moisturizing your skin can never be neglected. Sensitive/oily skin also needs moisturization. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t use cream based moisturizer, try using gel based moisturizers or lotions (with light consistency)Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ go with aloe vera lotions and gels( fab indifa aloe vera moisturizing lotion for oily skin reviewed at wiseshe), in case of acne try clove gel based cream

Apart from the above I would also like to share some more pointÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s related to sensitive/oily skin
