Help! Dryness!

Recommended Posts

I decided I would use the regimen shown on this site.

I have been using the proactive cleanser and the 2.5% bp repairing lotion as well as their moisturizer.

I was also soaking for 100 seconds or so in warm/hot water.

My face is now super dry and flaking and looks awful I really need some help moisturizer doesnt seem to be helping very much.

Should i cut down on the amount of BP im using I didnt even put any on last night and it still seems super dry. I also didnt soak last night.

Any tips appreciated :redface:

Maybe a bit of jojoba oil mixed into your moisturizer?

same thing is happening to me right now... lay off the hot water dip until your skin gets back to normal

in my opinion i think you should keep using bp... just be extra gentle and use LOTS of moitsterizer

ok thanks for the tips guys and gals, I used some Delon Moisturizing Butter with Coconut Oil and no animal products although it really looks like it woudl be bad for your face and clog your pores. I didnt really have access to any other moisturizer and the proactiv moisturizer was barely helping at all. The moisturizing butter cleared the dryness problem up quite well and was working great. I am hesitant to keep using it though as its a semi solid and im not sure if it would clog my pores etc.

I guess i will go out and try to buy some of the products reccomended by the site. However anyone have any opinions on this moisturizing butter? Delon Super Hydratant Moisturizing Butter (lol found it in my moms bathroom i was desperate)

P.S Duchess if that is you in your pic I would never even have thought you have acne, your skin looks great!

Black and white pics with good lighting are great :P

I've never heard of someone using coconut oil on their face, but looking on google it seems like it would help! It seems to work pretty well for some people :D

I dunno but I have used a certain lipbalm with coconut oil and it gave me a pimple on my lips, I never used that certain lipbalm ever again.
