My skin has been undergoing a change...due to hormones and change in climate. I always had oily or T-zone skin and for the last months have been dealing with dry spots and large pores on my cheeks (especially.)

Does anyone have anything that can shrink those pores? And still maintain a hydrated skin? I saw Joey's Skin Tightener and undermakeup base. Does that work?

Any information on 40+ skin undergoing changes will be of most benefit to me right now. So glad to have found these boards.

Thanks again...Melisande

I would go go for the Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream, toner and Rose Day Cream. The Dr Hauschka regime is great for large pores, acne and dry/oily skin.
Also have a look at the Apple Cider Vinegar Toner on the recipe thread.
Jojoba oil may also help in moisturising your skin whilst also aiding the large pores.

Try to choose a mild, alcohol-free, hydrated toner, specifically formulated for dry skin. It may help.

Hi Melisande, welcome to the forum Smile
My skin has been going through many changes too and its been tough trying to find a combination of products that work for me. I agree with rosebud, the Dr. Hauschka CC will probably work for you. It is great at cleaning out pores yet does not strip your skin. I find that I don't need moisturizer after using this but given your dryness you might need a light hydration after. HTH

Hi there. I seem to be having the same problem as Melisande. I discovered Decleor Cleansing Gel, toner, moisturizer, etc. on a visit to Maui, Hi about 3-4 years ago and have been using it since. On a recent trip (2 months ago) to California my face broke out because I had forgotten to take along my cleanser. I used Neutrogena over the counter thinking that maybe I needed a change. In between that time small amounts of acne as well as oily skin and large pores started to show up. I am now back to purchase more Decleor but I'm wondering if I should make a change. I'm a light-skinned asian, 32 with sensitive skin. I looked into Dr. Hauschka's products but it seemed more suitable for mature skin. Any suggestions or should I stick with what I have?

Hello val, welcome to the forum Smile Personally I wouldn't change anything that ain't broke, if you know what I mean. My recently sensitized skin has responded well to Decleor while other product lines caused irritation. I'm especially fond of the Essential Balm which has helped me degunk my pores and decrease their size without overdrying my skin. I do limit use of the EB to two weeks in a month though so maybe that helps me avoid dryness.

Vit C might be a good addition to your routine for photoprotection and radiance. If you've never used this its a good idea to start slow and let your skin adjust before building up on %C.

I disagree that the Dr Haushcka CC is only for mature skins. As a matter of fact, it sounds perfect for you since its another product that cleans out pores without stripping the skin of moisture. Really worth a try, so get a sample and see if it works for you. HTH

I think the Sothys skincare range is the way to go. It is sooo gentle yet very effective for so many types of skin.

Vitamin C worked really well for me. It improved my skin texture and really semmed to improve pore size. I'd suggest the PSF serum. It is good for dryer skins and is very reasonably priced.
