Hey everyone, I was curious what's a good lotion to use for the face. I've noticed that my face is kinda dry after a shower and I would like to fix that.
I used to have severe acne when I was like 13-18. I'm 21 now and I get like the occasional pimple. Nothing bad at all. I was wondering what's a good mild lotion to use than won't jack up my complexion!
how sensitive is your skin? For me, even the OTC hypoallergenic stuff can break me out. I actually had to go organic and it helps--if you want, I can send you some inks to some organic ( all natural not one chemical in it) stuff that is about the price of what you can find in a store...
If you use lotion on your face, it will most likely clog up your pores. You should use face moisturizer. At drugstores or stores like target and walmart they sell different types of facial moisturizer all made by different companies. I would recommend aveeno or 'clean and clear's' moisturizers. They are located right next to the face scrubs. Cetephil s also a great moisturizer.
OMG anything that's neutrogena will work, they have the best products for skin care, and I have used their facial stuff to clear my face! AND omg they are a miracle, they work over all the other products that I have used from Proactive, to Clean and Clear. I have bought this kind of lotion thing they have that is for the face, and it adds moisture to dried out areas on your face and it helps people with oily skin as well. Go to the neutrogena website, and i`m sure you will find something.
I use aveeno ultra-calming moisturizer. it works great for me! but I don't have any problems with acne, so maybe it wouldn't work the same on your skin type. If its not too dry, maybe I light moisturizer is best
Clinique moisturizing gel. Best stuff ever. Or clean & clear morning burst. Make sure you get oil free stuff.
The body shop has good facial moisturizers and have different kinds to accommodate to different skin types. Their stuff is expensive but they claim to be all natural and body shop products are great gifts for girlfriends :P
aveeno makes some really good daily moisturizers for the face which will not cause acne flairs in most people.
I use Vasline lotion occasionally and haven't had any trouble with it. I also use benzol peroxide lotion (Pro-Active stuff, though I prefer the generic), so that might be preventing the lotion from causing harm.
I wouldn't use any Oil of Olay products. They're suspect in my book.
I would actually recommend using nothing if possible. When you wash just use water and a wash cloth because the soap will really dry out your face (and for me at least, causes me to get pimples).
The face lotion that I occasionally use that does not cause pimples is Nivea for Men After Shave - Extra soothing balm - sensitive (because I have sensitive skin). It helps with dryness but does not cause pimples or a greasy face like a lot of other creams do.
