Every moisturizer ruins my face....

Recommended Posts

After not seeing results with cetaphil cleanser I have been using for years, my new dermatologist said to stop using and try something else. She gave me some samples of this new foaming cleanser from CeraVe which is alright but its very drying despite saying it doesn't overdry. My skin was dry after using the cetaphil cleanser too.

Basically, every moisturizer I try just seems to maul my skin. I'll put it on and it stings, it accentuates the redness, and makes my skin look greasy. Then during the day I'll produce oil on my face and by the time I get home I am a greaseball. Plus, I tend to break out.

If I don't moisturize, my face stays dry, but then gets red, tight, and irritated. It also hurts to laugh because its that dry.

I am in a lose -lose situation. I tried cetaphil and cerave lotions. The cerave stung so bad, i was suprised because I thought cerave was supposed to be gentle.
