#3451334 My Skin Cannot Stand Moisturizers At All, What To Do?

Posted by TerrificOnion on 09 September 2014 - 08:28 PM

I have dry sensitive skin and my skin hates moisturizers too D: I was convinced that all moisturizers were a bad choice for acne prone skin because all the ones I tried (even the "special" ones for acne prone skin) made things worse and broke me out. Over the years I have, however, found products that work and don't bother existing acne or give me new acne. 

Also, Its good look for moisturizers with minimal ingredients. Here is a DIY recipe for a 2 ingredient moisturizer! The fewer ingredients, the fewer things that could cause acne!

I use Hemp seed oil as a moisturizer. This is completely non comedometic. yay! It does leave your face shiny depending on how much you use though. It works as a good night time moisturizer because of this. 

Ever heard of or tried Hyaluronic acid? This should not bother your acne. It has minimal ingredients and works good under creams or by its self. I us it and my skin is still happy :)

I am still on the search for more ways to moisturize my skin. This is what works so far for me.

Having a regimen that is kind to your skins natural moisture barrier is also a good idea!

Wish you luck^^

Thank you!

I will definitely try to limit looking at my face and stay away from the mirror. It will be hard but I have to do it! Like you said, I know I will be happier. I just have to keep telling myself that.

I have been using polysporin on spots. I might try peroxide though.  And ice is a good idea :D

Thanks again!
