Post in Acne-Prone Skin


My skin is very dry and crepey, I am very prone to breakouts. I’ve found retinol helps with my acne but also dries my skin. Anytime I try to add in a moisturizer to my routine I breakout. Any good moisturizer recommendations that don’t break you out? 

Re: Moisturizer

@TiffnyMarie  Which moisturizers have you already tried? Without knowing your skin type/behavior (besides acne-prone): a good basic moisturizer is Vanicream Moisturizing Lotion: it’s lightweight yet effective and has a very simple ingredient list. 


Whichever moisturizer you use, apply it while your skin’s damp to seal in hydration instead of dryness. If your skin’s fully dried down by the time you reach the moisturizer step, just tap or spray a little water on your face before applying moisturizer.
