Ask Beauty Editor Lauren
I know exactly how you feel when it comes to breakouts.
First, step away from the soap! It breaks down the skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving it dry and more susceptible to irritation.
Focus on nurturing your skin and tackling oil production.
When mine’s feeling raw and sensitive, I reach for CeraVe Foaming Cleanser, £9 – it contains niacinamide to reduce the appearance of blemishes.
If your skin is fairly resilient and you’re short on time, try an acidic pad.
I’m obsessed with Medik8 Blemish Control Pads, £27, which use salicylic acid to slough away dead skin cells.
For sensitive skin, Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum, £29, contains not only salicylic acid, but also rose water and grape-seed polyphenols to regulate sebum production and give deep hydration – it’s a miracle worker!
