I need some suggestions on a moisturizer. I just ordered the regimen kit, and as it has bp in it I need a really hydrating lotion. I used bp through proactiv and it made my skin sooo dry. I thought I had a good lotion (I am using Eucerin Daily Protective). It works well when I'm not using bp, but as soon as I do use bp this lotion doesn't cut it. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated!!

It sounds like you want/need something thicker and more moisturizing than what the "lightweight" lotions provide. Therefore i would suggest something petrolatum based. Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing comes to my mind, but really anything petrolatum based will provide a good moisturizing barrier. 


Morning

light wash with Acne.org cleanse

Aveeno Daily SPF 15

Aczone (As only spot treatment)

Supplements

1000mg Omega-Complex

 

 

Night

Shower

medium wash with Acne.org Cleanser

Medium application of Aczone

I've been looking into many including Aveeno. I've also heard mixed reviews of cetaphil, ceraVe, Olay and Neutrogena

I think Cetaphil lotion is very moisturizing. I have really oily skin so the lotion is enough for me, if you have dry skin and live on a colder place, I suggest going for the Cetaphil cream. It is way thicker and creamier but just as good and won't break you out. It lasts you a while if you get the big container too so it comes our fairly cheap.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png
