Dan's Moisturizer-Good At Hiding The Flakes But Not Moisturizing Enough?

4 posts in this topic

I've been on Dan's Regimen for about 2 weeks now, but I've been using benzoyl peroxide for over a year already so I didn't notice a tremendous increase in dryness or redness like some people who start the regimen do. However, I am starting to notice some pretty deep wrinkles forming where my laugh lines are in between my mouth and my nose and they're really starting to worry me. Plus, I've been moisturizing like crazy with Dan's moisturizer, and while it does help a lot with hiding the flakiness, my skin still feels really taught and totally dehydrated. Also, his moisturizer tends to just sit on my face and sort of glob up sometimes.

I'm starting to think Dan's moisturizer might not be moisturizing enough for me, if that makes any sense. Are there any recommended intensive moisturizers out there that anyone can vouch for? I've heard people say Cetaphil works really well, but which Cetaphil product specifically? Any other brands?

I haven't used any of Dan's products while on the regimen but have you tried adding in jojoba oil to the moisturizer? I found that really helps.

I use the cetaphil lotion but only in the PM and it works really well for me, especially with jojoba oil. My face feels so soft in the morning.
