I'm a physician but still have a question for Dr. Gross about my skin.  It's combination and prone to breakouts but I still need a moisturizer.  The problem is that every moisturizer I've used (including oil-free and salicylic acid containing) cause whiteheads that lead to breakouts.  Any suggestions?


Hi Jikwee,

 

I would recommend  trying the Hydra-Pure® Oil-Free Moisture.   Not only is it anti-aging and ultra-light but I formulated it to defend against breakouts. It never leaves skin feeling oily and absorbs quickly.  Its fragrance and oil-free, and ideal for oily, combination skin like yours.  It protects, repairs, and reverses the signs of aging with powerful antioxidants, peptides, and contains a Chelating Complex, which is a blend of detoxifying compounds that will protect your skin from harmful elements.  You can use it AM or PM on clean, dry skin.

Thanks Dr. Gross!

Re: EXPERT SKINCARE Q&A

Dr. Gross,

 

I am extremely fond of your extra strength alpha beta peel and I can’t begin to express, how much I appreciate this product’s results! I must inquire what treatment do you suggest for expression lines around the mouth?

I am so pleased to hear that you are seeing results with the Extra Strength Alpha Beta® Peel.  Regarding expression lines around the mouth area, you should see a dermtologist in person as this may require a cosmetic procedure.

Dr. Dennis Gross,

 

Could you recommend other products of yours to use after the All in One Cleanser with Toner? I have teeny tiny black heads in the creases of my nose and can't get them to go away!! I am also moisturizer obsessed. Any good suggestions?

Hi. I am so pleased to hear that you are using the All In One Cleanser with Toner.

 

To combat blackheads I would suggest the All Over Blemish Solution. It will minimize pores and work to eliminate and prevent blackheads. It will also help control oil and shine.

 

For moisturizer-Trifix™ Oil-Free Moisturizer would be great for your skin concerns.  It’s a fast absorbing oil-free formula that targets blackheads, clogged pores, and soothes irritation while also working to nourish and quench skin. When formulating Trifix™ I created a blend of antioxidants, natural extracts, marine botanicals, minerals and vitamins to reduce redness and inflammation too.

 

 

Re: EXPERT SKINCARE Q&A

I am 40 and have begun worrying about hyperpgmentation, enlarged pores and wrinkles.  My question is this - is there a danger to layering too many treatments?  For example, should you use a pigment corrective, a wrinkle/firming treatment, and a moisturizer at the same time?

Hi, there is no danger to layering treatments.  As mentioned in an earlier response, Healthy beautiful skin does not come from 1 product or ingredient.  You must incorporate 4 steps into your everyday routine.  I formulated my products to be multi-tasking because I know everyone is busy but you should; Cleanse, Treat, Moisturize & Protect.

 

The Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel can help with all of your concerns-hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and wrinkles.

Thank you!  I will buy that now!  :-)

Re: EXPERT SKINCARE Q&A

I think that the Q&A is done, but in case not . . .  if I'm layering product, would  I use a serum / Vitamin D first and then the Trifix treatment, or use the targeted acne treatment first, then serum then moisturiser?  Thank you, love the Alpha Beta Peel (and other products, too, of course)!
