Recommended Posts

My face is sometimes flaky, im wondering if im not going outside, do i need to moisturize or can i just leave it the way it is? Will not moisturizing cause more breakouts? Thanks

I've read that when your face is dry your skin will sometimes produce more oil to compensate which could lead to more breakouts. So it may help your skin to moisturize with a lotion that won't clog your pores...I like Oil of Olay sensitive, doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy.

non-comedogenic moisturizers are a GOOD thing. Over dry skin can become irritated very easily causing more breakouts. Definitely pick up a good moisturizer.

I use a small layer of "Fuit of the Earth" Aloe Vera on trouble areas and a full layer of Cetaphil (at night) and Oil of Olay sensitve (during the day). Works very well. The aloe will help heal the skin and the moisturizer will help to prevent flaky cracky skin.
