Almost every moisturizer breaks me out. I am not sure if it has to do with the pH or anything else. What can you guys recommend? Thanks!

im the same way. So my derm said no to any type of hydrating moisturizer. When i cleanse my face- im very delicate. So im cleansing but not stripping. Honestly in the end- i dont really need it at all.

I have sensitive skin and nearly every moisturizer would clog my pores or break me out until someone said I should try Olay essentials sensitive beauty fluid. Ive been using it for three weeks now and so far Im really liking it.

Have you tried olive oil? It's all natural and works really well. I have super sensitive skin too and I've been using Ambi even & clear daily moisturizer with spf 30 for 2 months and it hasn't broke me out surprisingly. Infact I've actually seen an improvement... My face is softer and more even toned. Also I've heard cerave and Cetaphil are the top moisturizers recommended by dermatologists for people with extremely sensative skin. I honestly don't know why I haven't tried them yet... Haha. I might have to pick up some tomorrow.

You can use Burt's Beefs moisturizing cream and it helps you to soften your skin and clean damaged skin cells.

You could try MCT oil, which is very light and pleasant.  It's sold at Hi Health and Whole Foods.  It has a carbon chain length of only C8 and C10, so it's very short and absorbs well.  But any oil used at 100% is going to be shiny and oily -- that's why we buy lotions that are about 70% water, the first ingredient on the label.

 

You could experiment with pH by adding baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) -- adding about 0.5% will raise the pH about 1 number, but that's a very rough estimate.   You could lower the pH with lemon juice, and about 2.0% to 5% will lower the pH by about 0.5 or 1 number.  These are water soluble so they could be added to most cosmetics you already own.  You could web order 100 pH strips for about $20 and test the pH of products you like and products that don't work, you could get some information that might help you figure out what you like best.

 

Use a test patch on the crook of your arm before you put any modified product on your face, and you'll get an indication of whether it will be helpful or not.

Body Shop Aloe Serum.  Any of their serums, in fact, but that is the lightest and very affordable
