3 weeks into Proactive .... dry skin..

I had mild to moderate acne prior to trying this and it has really cleared things up for me, so I am happy, but my skin around my chin is so dry. I'm wondering if that will clear up after the first 6-8 weeks, or do I need to do something different?

Re: 3 weeks into Proactive .... dry skin..

I know how you feel I'm going through the same thing.

How often do you use it? Try to use it less often, or some facial lotion. I personally do use lotion, but I don't like it. It stings, and its hard washing it off. Soap dries out my skin even more :-/

Maybe because of the winter? Just throw on some lotion an you should be fine.

I also use proactive and experience some dryness. I use Clean & Clear (Oil Free) Dual Action Moisturizer. It moisturizes really well and also treats and helps prevent pimples! I love it! I usually use it on dry areas about 15-20 minutes after applying the proactive reparing lotion or i just use it in place of the repairing lotion.

thanks. I will try cutting back on the repairing lotion first, then try another moisturizer and see if it works. I don't find their oil free moisture to be enough from skin.I use three squirts of it and half hour later my face cracks when I smile.
