Greetings. I guess my skin could be described as both oily and sensitive. I have redness which goes from cheek to cheek, a genetic gift maybe, and I'm somewhat prone to breaking out in spots. I also tend to get skin bumps turning into small spots after I shave. I guess my condition is quite mild because I've never really bothered with skin care in the past and I've usually just washed with water. But, I would like to improve my appearance. I recently began using a Nivea Revitalising Wash twice a day, but with this recent out-break of spots I'm suspecting that the "Revitalising" wash doesn't help because I theorize that it would only intensify my already oily skin. My questions are: What kind of routine should I be looking at in controlling the spots? How can I get rid of this red, blemish like colouration? And how do I incorporate these improvements into shaving (another subject altogether maybe)? Cheers. Oh, and is soap good or bad? I know it dries the skin out, but if you already have oily skin isn't it better to dry it?
