Burning Sensation After Moisturizing?

12 posts in this topic

After I apply benzoyl peroxide and wait for about 30 minutes before apply my moisturizer which is Nivea for men, re-hydrating moisturizer.

My skin burns and looks a bit red and goes after awhile is this normal? Or could the cold during daytime causing this?

BP can be irritating to skin initially and make it sensitive to just about everything that goes on it. How long have you been using the BP?

Hm. Your skin is definitely used to the BP, then - especially if you've used 10%. It could be colder temperatures. Other members have reported burning sensations after moisturizing. Unfortunately, I don't have anything else useful to offer. :( Hopefully someone soon will jump in here with more knowledge about moisturizers!

This could be a combination of things. Yes, the weather can impact your skin, especially with very low ambient humidity, but that doesn't have that much of an effect compared to other factors. Have you been applying more BP lately? Have you changed cleansers? Could you please show me the ingredients label on your BP product?

Do you have any other moisturizing ingredients in the product like glycerin, propelyne glycol and/or urea? Sometimes these ingredients, particularly urea at higher concentrations can be at fault. More often though the company may have changed the formulation slightly without telling customers and you may be allergic to a new ingredient they added. Other times the product is past its expiration date and the formulation is degrading. Or you may not be using enough occlusive ("barrier") agents like petroleum jelly.

BP did the same thing to me when I was on Dan's regimen. ;o; I thought it was my moisturizer at first, but that seemed unlikely since it was specifically for sensitive skin. It was just the BP. I think it's normal, it just makes your skin sensitive to other things you put on.

you apply moisturizer way to quickly after BP. When i was on it my derm said wait 15 after cleanse- apply BP- Wait another 10 to 15 mins and apply moisturizer.
