Post I need major help!!!!

My skin is driving me insane. I have moderate to at times severe acne, I am 22. I am so sick of trying to treat my acne so I just went to a gentle regimin. I am using purpose cleanser and cetaphil moisturizer. Yet, still my face is so dry that I can't stand it. I cna't to anything with it. I am at a loss. I don't know what else to do. I only cleanse at night which has helped a little, but not much!! I like to wear make-up and I haven't been able to becuase when I put it on it just flakes off and looks like total crap!!!

does anyone else have this problem? Or has anyone figured out a way to help this? I am not using anything harsh whatsoever!!!!! I don't know what to do!!!

Thumbs up

Try using jojoba oil.... my skin is a white snowy flaky mess after I wash it (because of harsh medications, not just naturally like yours, but it's flaky all the same), then I put aloe on (just because with my skin, I found if just used the jojoba oil, my skin felt dry still, with some oil on top... hard to understand, I know... but it just felt better when I put the aloe on first, but lots of people on here use it alone), and while its still wet, I massage in jojoba oil all over.. works wonders, no more flakes!! They come back as soon as I wash again, but at least they are gone while I need to show my face in public. I haven't tried make-up over it yet cause i gave it up in favor of my skin 3 weeks ago, but I have read people on here who have used it before make up and liked it. I have just used powder, and its didnt flake off.
