Does Glycerin Cause Acne
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 in perimenopause, attempting to prevent future lines and wrinkles in my oily skin with mild moisturizers, but glycerin seems to cause acne. Is that common, or is it an allergy?
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.
Yes: That should be fine. Of course if you notice that it irritates the skin then stop.
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?
I just bought Benzac (benzoyl peroxide) AC 5% BP and I saw Acrylates Copolymer which release glycerin to moisturize dry skin so does BP moisturize face and get rid acne?
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.

Acne: Acne is a multifactorial disease. That means that there are many things it can cause it or aggravate it. If you have bumps on the skin of your face or in other oil gland bearing areas, you should really see a dermatologist to evaluate the type of acne you might have and the treatments which may be available for it in your case. Every case should be individualized.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
