For those who are using the BP treatment with alternative cleansers/moisturizers, I need recommendations for a new moisturizer.
After eliminating and changing products, I finally realized CeraVe was what was clogging my pores, which is something I'm not prone to. I've tried Cetaphil in the past with the same problem.
I was planning on doing some research on the recommended alternative moisturizers while waiting for my treatment to arrive but it came sooner than I expected. I'm considering Neutrogena's Oil-Free Moisture for Combo Skin.
My skin responds very well to oils (Maracuja Oil, Argan Oil, etc.) but I don't think it would be the best idea to use those alone by themselves on top of the BP.
Anyone? It'd be much appreciated.
I've had mild/moderate adult on-set acne which began towards the end of 2009 (22 years old). Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and/or had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may reflect that. Considering I've never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I can only offer my humble advice based on my own personal experiences.
