OILY SKIN

I am going through Menopause. Have noticed my face gets very red. Also even after applying cream to keep the skin matt. It still gets oily and red. How do I go by treating this and so my make up looks good and face looks better. Thanks

Re: OILY SKIN

HI there,
I wonder if you may have some features of rosacea. This can result in skin redness. Sometimes, this can have an overlap with oily skin as well.

I think it would be best to see your doctor to establish exactly the cause of this. Meanwhile, keep your skincare very straightforward. Use oil free, non-comedogenic (non-pore blocking) products which are made for sensitive skin.

Good luck!
