What is the best face moisturize
r for my flaky, yet oily skin?
My face is pretty dry right after I wash it in the morning. I use the CVS brand of Cetaphil as my dermatologist suggested that when I told him how my face gets very red and splotchy. Not long after I use that moisturizer/lotion, my skin becomes oily and flaky especially in between my eyebrows and on my forehead.
Can anyone suggest for me a decent priced product that I could use that would help moisturize my skin without causing flakes and oil?
Another cheap trick is to wash gently for 60 seconds (count to 60 slowly) and then using a cheap, nubby washcloth you can get at Walmart (bundle pack), wet it and start wiping off the cleanser. Do this about three times, using mild pressure. Then splash a couple of times with water and pat dry. Apply the Clinique moisturizer (start with pea size first and then adjust after you see how your skin feels in about 20 minutes). Because you are flaking, you need exfoliation but with sensitive skin, scrubs can be too harsh. I find the washcloth works great. In the morning, if your face is not oily, simply splash with water in the shower and run the cloth over your face a few times. If you need to use cleanser in the morning, cut it down to 30 seconds. Use a clean washcloth every day. I find this works just as good as pricy scrubs.
