If this inflammation of the skin caused by hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands is not a fatality, it requires to disappear that we apply a tailor-made program, to be defined according to its type of skin.
My skin is sensitive

Side makeup. Choose from complexion products with simplified formulas and specially designed for intolerant skin because it is enriched with hyaluronic acid or anti-inflammatory thermal water.
My skin is marked
From age 35, some face a double problem: imperfections persist and the first signs of age settle.

My skin is dull

My skin is dry
To rebalance and treat, start by reviewing your makeup remover ritual by swapping your tonic against a micellar water moisturizing anti-sebum. In the morning, a floral water is enough to clean the skin and tighten the pores. Then apply a cream capable of rebalancing the skin barrier while preventing the formation of new imperfections.

My skin is irregular
When the skin becomes oily, the pores expand to facilitate the evacuation of the sebum. So you have to bet on a care able to regulate the production of sebum, which makes it possible to limit the glosses, and in the end, to tighten the pores. And if it has a sun protection factor, it's even better!
