Hypoallergenic: Make up is best. Toxins in makeup goes in through the skin. One example is high lead levels in lipstick. Search for goo quality because some companies use the term "hypoallergenic" as a marketing tool. Peace and good health.

I'm wondering is glycerin based soap good against acne?

No: In spite of what some misinformed grown-up may have told you, acne's not caused by being dirty, or having unhealthy lifestyle habits. It is a complex and potentially serious disease and isn't going to respond to something that does basically nothing. Your physician can manage it but the medicines are strong -- it's your right to have 21st century health care.

Why glycerin help skin all over body except face it makes it red and irritated. I have acne skin + wide pores + undereye wrinkled thin skin. Pls help?

Why glycerin?: You seem to have a few things going on - acne, "wide pores" and undereye wrinkled skin. There isn't a single universal formula to treat these. I don't believe that glycerin is your cure all. Definitely make an appointment with your dermatologist to evaluate each of your conditions.

Benzoyl peroxide: I see you are also using doxycyclne and tretinoin. This is a good combination. If you are not getting satisfactory results, you're old enough to be a possible candidate for isotretinoin.

What causes baby acne?

What causes baby acne?

Maternal Hormones: Baby acne is the result of maternal hormones passed onto your baby during pregnancy. These hormones stimulate the oil glands and cause those red, sometimes white bumps on your baby's cheeks and forehead. Baby acne typically makes its appearance at 3-4 weeks of age. It is very common and unfortunately, cannot be prevented. Take heart though, it will resolve on its own.
