Maybe your best bet is to apply the BP like every other day only at night, I do this and it keeps the dryness in check. If you have pimples you can spot treat them and let the rest of your face heal
thanks, I'm a fairly new regimen user, and I think that part of my problem is technique. I tend to be rough with my skin, but I try my best to be gentle. Spot treating is hard for me because I don't "break out", these little whiteheads just appear everywhere. Thanks for your advice though, I might try that!
How are you going to know if something works for you if you're too hesitant to try different products? Not every product works for every person. If you're expecting dozens of people here to all agree on the same product that will work best for YOU, I'm afraid you will be disappointed as it's not likely to happen. You just have to try things for yourself and hope for the best.
Dan recommends using Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer Sensitive Skin SPF 15. I'd recommend starting with that one.
And Cetaphil does make moisturizers containing SPF; there are Daily Moisturizers with SPF 15 and SPF 50. There is also one called Cetaphil DERMACONTROL Oil Control SPF 30, but it's geared towards people with oily skin (I recently purchased this one but haven't started using it yet). You can find more info on their website.
you're right, I just have to try things and hope for the best! I have to put more effort into actually finding things for myself, but thanks for the recommendation!
