My skin would be a little bit sensitive and being a girl -of course I get my break outs every now and then.

The good thing about Neutrogena – the product is actually developed by dermatologists so you know you are getting top notch solutions and products that work!

The Cream Wash includes spot-fighting MicroClear Technology which offers a fast and effective solution for clearer skin.

The creamy textured wash purifies skin without over drying.
“One of my must have’s for 2011 is the Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Cream Wash. It’s so great, it smells amazing and it’s my favourite colour- pink! It’s really great because I have quite sensitive skin but this is really gentle and leaves my skin moisturised”
Skin isn’t always easy to manage, and different skin types need a tailored solution. Dr. Sue Mayou, Consultant Dermatologist and skincare advisor to the Neutrogena brand, has some tips on how to cleanse your skin according to your skin type and specific problem.
Your Problems Answered:
1. The problem: My skin is sometimes very spotty and dry. I don’t want my skin to dry out even more by using a harsh spot skin clearing treatment but I need to eliminate my break outs!
Dr. Sue Mayou says: “Look for a product which contains salicylic acid but that is also gentle. The salicylic acid will help to exfoliate the skin and unblock the pores. Make sure you use a product that is suitable for sensitive skin and tailor your approach to specific problem areas”
Sue’s top skin tip: “Wash twice daily with a gentle cleanser containing salicylic acid and look for hydrating properties too”
2. The problem: I get an oily T-zone but I can’t find an everyday product that isn’t too harsh
Dr. Sue Mayou says: “The T-zone is usually the oiliest part of the face due to the higher concentration of sebaceous glands located here. Use gentle products with an active drying ingredient for oily areas and wash your face twice a day, especially important in the evening to remove makeup and dirt”
Sue’s top skin tip: “Use the ‘paint by numbers’ approach and treat problem areas of your skin with different product.
