Re: mildly dry face
If you are starting to break out, DO NOT USE AN OIL BASED MOISTURIZER! Most oil based moisturizers are made of glycerin or paraben, which are both oils, and will cause mega breakouts. You want an oil free moisturizer, which is non comodengenic- (wont clog pores) ...and make sure you arent using anything drying such as alcohol based toners on your skin.
Go for gentle. Cetaphil- or Neutrogena Minerals or Neutrogena gentle daily clean both make moisturizers which wont break you out.
The new oils, which are used to remove makeup are fine....because you wash them off! And, they arent made of the same kind of oils which moistuizers are. Most are olive oil based or made from natural oils....but because you wash them off they are gentler. EVen so, they may break you out. I personally cannot use any of them....
I really like oil free moisturizers by a company called Boscia. I get it at Sephora and Ulta...alittle more expensive, but organic and have yet to break me out.
