Skin drying products

Recommended Posts

Guest <*>

Are there any products that you can but except for bp gel that will dry your skin out?? I ask this because my acne always looks better when I have dry skin. When I went on holiday to Russia I didn't have any new spots and my skin looked a lot better, maybe the coldness dried out my skin??

Cheers

Calamine lotion? It contains Zinc and sulfur. It may turn you face pink though.

Read about it here...

* Calamine lotion, rich in zinc, is an excellent acne treatment. Plus,

it's inexpensive and readily available in stores-and may already be in

your medicine cabinet.

* Sulfur has been used for thousands of years to treat skin disorders.

A topical antiseptic, it helps control acne without irritating the

skin. Sulfur-containing acne products can usually be found in natural

products stores.

I've never used it but it's just a thought.

Aloe Vera is supposed to be moisturizing and soothing, but I actually find it pretty drying. However, it doesnt dry your face in a way that it'll crack or something, but instead it kinda smoothes your skin. Why dont you try that?
