Need A Moistuiser

4 posts in this topic

Hi

I recently had a really bad on-going breakout after using a product from Body Shop, and doctor gave me this 'Duac Once Daily' gel to use every night.

He also recommended that I use a oil-free moisturiser. I am currently using Nivea for Men Sensitive but unsure if this is oil free and was hoping someone can clarify or recommend another product? I was looking at Simple but again I am un-sure, there are so many out there crazy.gif

Thanks

This may help. Link to ingredients to avoid. Neutrogena moisture oil free formula (combination skin) is a nice moisturiser that many people on the boards like. it may come down to personal choice though, but it is really important to moisturise if using duac. Good luck! :)


After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

Thanks for the reply :)

I ended up with Simple's rich moisturiser. The nivea one I was using before didnt seem to really moisturise much because I was slapping loads onto my face and within 20 minutes my face was dry!

Ive noticed its stating to dry/wrinkle my face a bit too which i'm a bit concerned about :( hopefully this simple stuff is better

I currently use the simple but only at night! I have completely cleared my acne and so far havent had any breakouts using this product.
