Dry skin...

I already asked on the beauty board but I figured I would try here too since someone might know more about pore clogging...

I've been having to use a really harsh BP cream to clear up a bad reaction I had to some shampoo I was using.. and my was just horribly horribly dry and rough the last few days... it was driving me crazy... my regular oil free just wasn't cutting it.

So I got desperate this morning and did something a little unorthadox.. I grabbed my moms neutrogena swiss formula hand cream (home for the holidays till monday, had to use her products) and the funny thing is.. it worked beautifully.. my skin is SO much better... just one application and all the chapping and flaking is totally gone.

So here's my question.. it SAYS on the back that it's ok for your face too... but does anyone know if this will clog my pores or hurt my skin if I keep using it?

Re: Dry skin...

no no no don't use it. Try not to use such a harsh BP. The strongest isn't the best. You can get clogged pores and more acne from dry dry skin too. Try to use a balance. Take it easy on the BP. I have done this in the past and got so dry my skin started to blister. Try to use Vasoline cause it does not clog your pores according to my derm it does not penetrate your skin hence why it is so slippery. use it on top of your moisturizer and for a few days stop using your BP and try something a little less irritating. DO NOT USE HAND CREAM ON YOUR FACE.
