Weird Skin Quality?

Recommended Posts

I have struggled with both body and facial acne for the past three years. (18 year old guy now) A regimen helped, but diet really pushed my face over to the clear zone as long as I stay consistent. However, nothing I have found seems to work for my body. I have tried benzoyl peroxide washes, salicylic acid body washes/sprays, dead sea salt, and antibiotics. Even diet didn't help my body out. It's extremely frustrating as I am sure many of you know. Here is where my question lies. No matter what product I use on my body, the skin never dries out! Not once. Therefore, I do not use a moisturizer. The skin on my body is not at all oily though. This situation just gets me stumped. The only thing I can think of at this point is that I have no vitamin D3 (because of my diet I can't seem to get any) or dead skin cells on my body are having massive parties every day. Perhaps I have an abnormally high cell turnover rate, which could explain the non oily, acne prone, and never dry skin on my body? This means that the second option would be exfoliation. Any comments or help would be greatly appreciated!
