Does it matter what lotion or moisturizer should I use for my face (with acne)?

Does it matter what lotion or moisturizer should I use for my face (with acne)?

Non-comedogenic: I am glad to hear that you understand that despite acne or oil-prone skin, it is very important to moisturize daily. The key to a good moisturizer is to ensure it is non-comedogenic or non-pimple forming. Cetaphil, cerave, neutrogena and aveeno (oatmeal) all make great moisturizers that fall into this category. ...Read more

Bar soap or a cleanser to clean my face? And moisturizer or lotion for very dry, acne prone skin? My skin always feels dry and tight!

Good skin care: Although visiting a dermatologist to determine the cause (hormonal, skin care, topical reaction, etc) may be the best first step. A variety of skin care regimens ranging from gentle cleansers with appropriate moisturizers and exfoliation with the possible prescription of oral or topical retinoids may be a good beginning. However topical antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, etc may help. ...Read more

Lotion may clog pore: The lotion may be clogging your pores. Try doing without the lotion and see if it makes a difference, On the other hand, it could be hormonal. May or may not apply to you, but sometimes going on or off birth control or changing pills may affect acne. Try these suggestions for starters.

And do lotions and creams have side effects on our health when applyed daily over a long period of time?

Moisturizing advice: The frequency of moisturizing really depends on an individual's personal needs and environment. People with naturally oily skin may never need to moisturize, but people with certain skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis may require several applications per day. Avoiding fragrance body products, staying well hydrated, and wearing loose natural fiber clothing will likely reduce overall need. ...Read more

2-apply a topical steroid cream, such as 0.5% or 1% hydrocortisone(otc)

Most rashes on the face are caused by their own slobber and contact with linens, blankets and clothing. The rashes wax and wane. Wipe the face often with a wash cloth and this will help too. ...Read more
