So during the winter, I do cut back on my acne drying products...and I do use more moisturizer. Anyone have product advice to combat the dryness of winter? Like maybe a mildly drying acne product.
Also anything else I can do? Does anyone use a humidifier/vaporizer in their room? I started putting a small pot of water in my room to see if it makes the air less dry.
Right now...the products I use are:
Neutrogena Oil-free moisture (sensitive skin)
This is the best moisturizer I have ever used. I highly recommend it...although I haven't really tried out any other products.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
I switch to this in the winter since it dries a little less than the other products. Still, it dries my skin a little too much so I eventually start using it every other day...or even go 3-5 days without using it.
Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser
Just FYI, I use this acne drying product during the warmer seasons. It does dry the skin a lot...but it's the best thing I've found so far.
I just need some advice or product suggestions to help control my acne which I've had for a long time. From my experience, drying the skin makes the acne significantly worse. During the winter, I constantly use moisturizer. I pretty much wash my face with warm water 4-5 times a day...and apply moisturizer after each time. I do use Acne wash, but when it gets too dry...I can go up to 3-5 days without using it.
So yeah, please post any advice, product suggestions....and regimens that you use during the winter to control dryness and acne.
Edit: I think I mainly need some advice on acne wash products that don't dry the skin too much. Please suggest a gentle acne wash/cleanser!
Thanks for reading!
PS: I've read some good things about Jojoba Oil!
