This October Balance Me opened up our skin clinic via our twitter account @balancemebeauty with the #skinclinic and we had a huge response from our followers. Our skincare experts were on hand to answer all your skin queries and we’ve noted down some examples here. If you have a skincare query and it isn’t answered below, please feel free to get in touch with us via our twitter, Facebook or over email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to help.
Georgina asked: I need some serious oil control products, what would you recommend?
Balance Me answered: First of all need to get your cleansing sorted! We recommend the pure skin face wash to balance your skin – which works without stripping it of essential oils. Our radiance face oil also fights oil with oil, perhaps try our mini first.
Ellie asked: When should I start to worry about and target preventing aging? I want to do as much as I can to prevent it!
Balance Me answered: We think it's far better to target your skin concerns rather than just thinking 'anti-ageing'. Look at what your skin needs. If you think you are getting fine lines because of dehydration? Try one of our products with hyaluronic acid. Products like our facial expression filler will really help, as will be the skin bright hydrating face mist. Give them a try! We believe the best prevention is a really good skincare regime now, so target any problems and keep your skin balanced and healthy. Don’t forget your SPF too!
Rose asked: Should you exfoliate before or after cleansing and why?
Balance Me: We love to gently exfoliate during cleansing with our cleanse and smooth balm! Otherwise, always exfoliate after you cleanse, as you want to get rid of the superficial things like make-up etc before really removing the deeper impurities.
Laura asked: I have dry and dehydrated cheeks but an oily nose!
Balance Me answered: Combination skin can be really tricky! Try our radiance face oil which regulates oil production as well as also hydrating dry skin. The stellar face balm is a great treatment for dry cheeks, but avoid the congested area around the nose. You could also try our pure skin face wash to balance the skin.
Hayley: I'm 35 and need products to keep my skin looking radiant what would you suggest?
Balance Me answered: We LOVE our radiance face oil as it's a 100% natural radiance enhancer and helps keep skin firm and bright. The rose otto face oil will also be great for you - decreases fine lines and strengthens skin - out next month!
Aimee asked: How do I help stop my skin breaking out when I'm stressed?
Balance Me answered: We recommend keeping your skin balanced at all times with a good routine of pure skin face wash, followed by the balancing face moisturiser to help stop breakouts. Keep the congested skin serum in your bag as a preventative measure; apply when you feel stressed to problem areas.
Gillian asked: I have big pores on my face and need to find something to reduce them or how to make them look smaller HELP
Balance Me answered: The cleanse and smooth balm will help to keep them clean and therefore appear smaller. Try the radiance face mask once a week to help reduce the appearance of pores as well.
Danniella asked: What is a good way to massage your face with your radiance oil?
Balance Me answered: Always massage upwards to give your face a good lift & take time on any dry of particularly sensitive areas.
Nicola asked: I need eye cream advice; pregnancy has left me super dark and super dry!
Balance Me answered: We really love our wonder eye cream as it works to hydrate and brighten the eye area with powerful natural ingredients.
Emma asked: I have dry lips and have tried everything including exfoliation. Nothing seems to help since the weather got cold? Any tips?
Balance Me answered: Our rose otto lip intensive salve has hyaluronic acid & lanolin, as well as butters and oils to protect amd hydrate lips. We also LOVE our stellar face balm with organic shea butter as super hydrating lip treatment. Buff with your toothbrush first!
Antonia asked: What would you recommend for outbreaks around the chin area? White heads and stubborn sore spots?
Balance Me answered: Cleansing is key, so try our pure skin face wash to keep area clean followed by the balancing face moisturiser, to give you just enough hydration. The radiance face oil is great on the spot treatment - fight oil with oil! The congested skin serum is also great at zapping spots.
Danniella asked: What would you recommend for dull skin?
Balance Me answered: Absolutely try our radiance face mask – it’s an instantly brightening weekly treatment that takes five minutes and very gently exfoliates too.
Rose asked: I'd love to know which Balance Me products are best for brightening and radiance?
Balance Me: We have lots of brightening treatments! Try the radiance face oil for every day skin enhancing and the radiance face mask for weekly treatment. We also have the fabulous wonder eye cream for brightening and tightening of the eye area!
She asked: Any tips on using foundation on very dry skin?
Balance Me answered: Try to hydrate and moisturise the skin as much as you can before applying foundation. Our PR manager has super dry skin and she uses the cleanse and smooth balm, radiance face oil followed by the moisture rich face cream before her foundation. If you’ve not got time – try a big spritz of our skin bright hydrating face mist!
Jenny asked: Can you recommend a moisturiser for lined (45yr old) skin that's not too greasy. Other creams give me milia.
Balance Me answered: Why not try the intensive wrinkle repair cream - it's really rich but sinks in beautifully and is full of hydrating hyaluronic acid.
Emily asked: I have a few blemishes on my chin that I can't seem to get rid of. What would you suggest?
Balance Me answered: Try the congested skin serum but also give the area very deep clean with our cleanse and smooth balm. The radiance face oil can help too, fighting oil with oil!
