Weak-Troubled Skin

Weak-Troubled (W-T) Skin Types are difficult to treat, because there are only a few skin products suitable for both subtypes. Both subtypes can also worsen each other if left unchecked, so quick and appropriate treatment is usually strongly recommended. Goal of treatment is to reverse the problems and protect the skin from future environmental aggression.

Take note with this skin type that some steps recommended here can cause dryness and sensitivity with initial use, so lessen these steps as needed until you are comfortable. For example, an acne cleanser is recommended for alternate use with a gentle cleanser, use both, but more frequently the gentle one if the acne cleanser is too drying. Strictly do not use unnecessary products that are not recommended here.

Skin types can change with time and also with new triggers in the environment, so retake the quiz if new problems arise.
