Oily, Yet Dry And Flakey...help?!
Posted 07 March 2012 - 12:22 AM
Reason being, I use moisturizer(moderately) but I always seem to be overly oily...but the reason I use moisturizer is because I use Dan's BP (and have for 6 years now) and it dries me out. So honestly, my skin looks dry as in is flakey and dried out from the BP but is also shiney/oily from I guess my natural oiliness, as well as the moisturizer. If I don't moisturize my skin, it just looks REALLY dry and flakey but with less shine....IDK I'm at a loss as to how to maintain a balance between this. How can I make my face look moisturized without being too oily and with no DRY SHINEY FLAKES?!
Thanks in advance

I never heard such a cream BP but checked out on the net to see what it is about. I would never ever use it.
A recent research study into the use of aqueous cream on healthy skin showed that regular use of aqueous cream can reduce the thickness of healthy skin and increase water loss from the skin. This is thought to be because it contains a detergent called sodium lauryl sulphate rather than just moisturisers. Skin experts now recommend that people with eczema only use aqueous cream as a soap substitute. There are many alternative moisturisers available for use in people with eczema.
Before I bought artistry I would make toners from herbal teas such as mint, green tea, rosemary.. As a moustrizer I have use organic creams and avoid strictly chemical ones.

The question is: What do you use on your face? (wash, toner, mouisturizer, creams, ....)

I don't get notified of your response to my post unless you QUOTE my post.
Please only quote a small portion of the post so it doesn't clutter up the thread.
HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products

And as long as I'm blotting (with oil paper, kleenex, napkins, any clean paper source), my skin looks OK.

I literally used to have the same problem. My skin was oily, but I had nasty dead skin peeling all the time. It was horrible on my self confidence. But since I discovered exfoliation I've never had the problem since.
So basically this is what I do:
At night I wash my face, exfoliate, and then put on the needed amount of moisturizer/acne med needed for the night.
Next day I wake up, take a shower, let the shower rinse my face, then repeat.
