No Matter How much moisturizer i put on!

Recommended Posts

My face is tight and flaky even when i put loads of moisturizer on. I didnt start the regimin too fast, ive been on it for almost 2 months... i used al little more Bp than usual (rampining up the dose) and yesterday my face has been all red and tight. Today, my face isnt red, its just peeling and tight. I put on a lot of moisturizer every 30 mins and my face still gets tight and flaky within 10 mins. I cant open my mouth to chew my food or else it feels like my face is being stretched like crazy. I must of used 1/4 of the bottle of moiturizer today because my face is EXTREMELY SHINY! Also, i purchased Desitin today and was wondering if this will help my tightness at all. Im using it for my red marks to fade but i hope it helps with dryness and peeling!

Sound like you ramped up too fast in the past few days. Hopefully you'll be back to normal in a day or two. What moisturizer are you using? Try an alpha hydroxy one if you're not already on one. Works very well.

Im still using the Neutrogena Moisture.. i cant get the AHA one until im done with Moisture. Is the alpha hydroxy one good for sensitive, dry skin. I have VERY LOW oil production and hormonal acne.

Several AHA moisturizers can be kinda stingy, but the Eucerin one is very light and nice yet does an incredible job at moisturizing, especially in conjunction with bp. I think you'll really like it.
