Every Moisturizer I Have Ever Used Gives Me Pimples...

Oils and butters on the skin are comedogenic. They block pores and cause hairs to grow inward. Choose a non comedogenic moisturiser.

bullshit article. i used neutrogena for men and it gave me acne. tired of these articles that think they know everyones skin type.

Have you ever thought that you might simply be allergic to some ingredients? I had an allergy test and my skin flared up with a lot if stuff. There's so much crap in products now. I tried Estée Lauder oil free moisturiser. It says it was "non acnegenic" I broke out. Turns out one of the ingredients was on my avoid list. thankfully Estee Lauder will accept returns on even used products. Non-acnegenic is meant to mean it does not cause or promote acne. Non-comedogenic shouldn't cause or promote comedones (blackheads). I think acne prone skin is more fragile than even sensitive skin. I know mine is after years of strong creams and medications.

You could always use your own mixture of glycerin and water, which is what people used to moisturize with "in the old days" before we became reliant on pre-made products in pretty packaging off a store shelf.

Glycerin and water...can't really get much simpler than that.

my mum uses glycerin and water(to dilute the thick solution) and i have tried using it.

i am still not sure if it works for me.

i cant guarantee it gave me whiteheads but i was suspicious the last time i tried on one part of my face.

when winter comes i might try a patch test once again.

as for summer,living in a tropical country thats hot and humid needs no moisturiser.(at least not on the face)


Itchy red raised skin - dermatitis??

huge pores

indented scar

oils used for cooking

inflamed whiteheads & clogged pores

my balanced diet chart and skincare routine(medications taken & products used now)
