Moisturizer Help. .

I'm on about month five. .everything is going well, my face does not break out as often or as bad as it did before, yet i kind of feel as if the moisturizer i use is making things worse. I started out using Neutrogena Oil-Free moisturizer for sensitive skin but it made my face way too oily, so I switched to Neutrogena for combination skin and it is a little better. The only real problem now is the old red marks and the irritation from the moisturizer. . my face seems to always have a red/irritated look to it. .do I need to try another moisturizer? or has any one else had this problem?

sometimes people are sensitive to the spf ingredients. If you happen to be one of those, you can look for moisturizers with zinc oxide as the sunscreen, it seems to have less of a problem with irritating people.

It's kindof a catch-22, I know, you need to protect from the sun, but if the sunscreen is causing problems, you gotta make a choice.
