Question about water and moisturizer

1. Can warm/hot water cause dry irritated skin?

2. Can I soak on moisturizer and leave it plastered on my dry areas without any harm? will it do any good?

Thanks in advance

Hi Dolfan,

Hot water can be overly drying.

As for soaking on moisturizer, do you mean slathering on a thick layer and leaving it on like a mask?

Yeah, just slathering a thick layer on and leaving it there.

Well, it may feel good overnight, but I don't know if it's a good idea to do frequently.

Which moisturizer are you using?

I have complex 15, LH5 and cetaphil spf 15. I just get really dry around my chin area and applying the moisturizer once per regimen normally isnt fixing it... so I'm going to try blobbing it on and leaving it there to see if it has more of a moisturizing affect.

Yeah, it's funny how drying plain old water can be.

As to the leaving moisturizer blobbed on your face...ehh I dunno if it would still be non-comedogenic. It seems like your skin wouldn't be able to breathe.

i use cetaphil cream which i find to be very moisturizing and non-comedogenic.

contrary to popular belief, not all moisturizing creams are comedogenic.
