I have made some changes in my skin care routine for seborrheic dermatitis on my face. The more I learn, the better I get at treating my seborrheic dermatitis. The biggest thing I’ve learned in treating seb derm is that, though it LOOKS like dry skin, it is really oily. It needs a thorough yet GENTLE cleaning and LIGHT moisturizing. Here are some of my fave products, and I’ve included affiliate links below. You can trust that these products are what I truly use on my rash-plagued face!
In the morning, I wash my face with Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel. It is mild, yet cleans well. If you are very oily-prone or are struggling with a major seborrheic dermatitis breakout, then you might want to use a toner as well, at least in your trouble areas.
Then I apply two great products for seborrheic dermatitis. First, I use the Boots Anti-Redness Serum on my rashy/red areas. At about $15 – $20 (Amazon is usually cheaper than getting at Target), this is my most expensive product, which I think is pretty good. Plus I only apply a little bit in my trouble areas as needed. It works really well at reducing the redness that usually comes with seborrheic dermatitis.
Then I slather on Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer SPF 15. It’s just a very basic, non-irritating day cream with the all-important sun protection. Perfect!
After a hard day of motherhood (i.e.: lots of dirt and sweat and stress), I wash the yuckies off my face with my beloved Clarisonic and another dose of the Simple Refreshing Facial Gel Wash. I talk more about using the Clarisonic on seborrheic dermatitis in this post. Then I apply a thin layer of Eucerin Redness Relief, it only costs around $12 – $15 and lasts me two to three months. No need to buy crazy-expensive night creams, people!
I really love both the Simple products and the Eucerine Redness Relief products. If you’ve tried any others, please comment below. I’d love to know – what products help with your facial seborrheic dermatitis?
