Alright, I've got a problem in The Acne.org Regimen Posted October 19, 2006 I had that problem too... flakiness and tightness and redness. I partly blame the Cetaphil, actually. It made my skin feel burnt and oily... really gross! But I'd say to give the jojoba oil a good week or so to really start taking care of those flakes. And maybe try the Moisturel moisturizer, I've been using that for a good couple weeks now and I love it! Moisturizes and doesn't leave my skin oily! The Lac Hydrin Five might be a little too harsh for your skin if it's irritated already... it does have AHA in it, which stings a little. I've been using the Lac Hydrin Five at night and then the Moisturel in the morning, both with jojoba oil, and I've stopped flaking! Hooray! Maybe something like that would work for you?
