Skin Clearing Moisturizer! (Is there such a thing??)
I’m having a dry skin issue with all this winter weather – but still breaking out a bit.
Do any of you bees have a great, light moisturizer that also helps to clear up/avoid breakouts (more than just hypoallergenic)???

I’ve always used Cetaphil – it’s supposed to be really good for sensitive skin, and it keeps my face really clear!
Edit: just saw you meant moisturizer, not face wash. Cetaphil makes moisturizer too, and I’ve heard it’s really good!!

I use Cetaphil, as well. I went through a little period of time where I had weird dry patches on my face so my dermatologist recommended Cetaphil and I have used it ever since and I haven’t had any more problems with my skin.

When I went off the pill I started breaking out like crazy, nothing worked until a friend recommended Clinique’s anti blemish solutions moisturizer. I ended up buying the whole anti blemish solutions set, and it’s been great. But, even when I ran out of the rest, the moisturizer worked wonders on its own. I have sensitive skin, and it works fine. From when I started using it, it took about 3 weeks until everything was clear. I don’t even use foundation anymore. Just a primer on my t-zone so I don’t get too shiny.
Anyway, heartily recommend it.

I have used Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer. Its great! Ive been using this for as long as I can remember. Its great because it doesn’t leave a grease slick on your face!

I have sensitive and dry skin, and while I use Cetaphil soap to wash my face, I have to use an even lighter moisturizer for my face. I use Complex 15 and I love it. It can be hard to find, but some standard drugstores carry it.

you might want to try one that contains Tea tree oil! The one I use and also have in my kit is a korean brand…Gowoonsesang Oil Control Intensa. I also recommend Ahava Matifying Moisturizer – products that control your oil while moisturizes your skin helps control the sebum production and thus will help fight acne. Both of these are hypoallergenic.
Ahava makes a series of great products that are hypoallergenic from the dead sea! if you want a moisturizing facewash that also helps fight acne AND contains sulfur, try Made-Up Drama SOAP – Adovia is another deadsea type company: it is 6.99 per bar soap, lasts forever, and does help alot!! http://www.adoviaspa.com/dead-sea-mud-soap.php
The only down side is mudsoap is STINKY…! lol~ i hate going to bed smelling like that, but hey, it works.

First off it’s great that you’re still remembering to moisturize inspite of your acne- most people skip unfortunately. You first and for most need to remember to exfoliate. It’ll help get the dead skin off your face and it will help get that oil out of your pores. YAY! First and for most I think that the greatest thing that has a multipurpose use is petroleum jelly. No lie it will decrease the size and redness of bumps. It moisturizes and you can put it on your lips, face, feet, etc. Just put it on overnight and wake up to a softer face. I love Aveeno for a daytime moisturizer, plus the greatest thing is that it has an spf of 15.

I swear by Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel. I have acne prone skin and it’s worked wonders. It moisturizes well, soothes my skin and I can use it as a primer for foundation. It’s more expensive, like $24 a bottle but I believe you can buy a travel size for less if you want to try it out.

I use the Bare Escentuals Rare Minerals stuff, but Cetaphil is also awesome. :o)
