I'm a male 29 years of age. Asian-Hmong. I'm more on the tan skin than light asian skin. I been using St Ives Green Tea cleanser, but it's not been working well for while now. I notice after applying in the showers and 5 to 10 minutes drying the face area; i could always feel my face tight and dry. I just don't know what else to try to use. I've read plently that asian skin doesn't work well with BP since it dries out quick compare to something with saylic acid. If anybody could recommend or suggest something that works for you or asian skin let me know. Thank You.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser.


If that is too hydrating, CeraVe Foaming Cleanser.

I agree. I'm Filipino and I use CeraVe Hydrating and it works well for me.

Since all-OTC stuff hasn't worked, I now have prescriptions.


Wash: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser in Morning; CeraVe Foaming Cleanser at Night


AM Moisturizer: CeraVe AM Lotion SPF 30


PM Moisturizer: CeraVe PM Lotion



Acanya gel

Epiduo gel

Doryx 200 mg

(maybe Tretin-X cream soon)
