If anyone asks me what my skin type is, I tend to say dehydrated. Because, let’s be real, it’s dry. So dry, in fact, that it drinks up moisture in the same way that I do after a 30-minute HIIT class. The fact that it develops a sheen throughout the day that could lead you to believe that I have oily skin, or at least combination? Well, that points to the fact that my skin is actually overproducing sebum because of the lack of moisture.
To add insult to injury, I also get bouts of eczema on my face and neck. So during flare-ups, I have to keep all of my product choices as moisturising as possible to make sure that I don’t aggravate my skin barrier further. Enter the cream cleanser.
