Is there anything that doesn't make spots worse?

Olay Regenerist


Cetaphil Mousterizer

only SPOT TEST!!! don't apply the thing on your entire face for safety. If it irritates that particular spot, stop it. if it doesn't cause any new pimples, any irritation, then it probably works fine.

Try Neutrogena's Combination Skin Moisture. It's very light and it's even supposed to absorb extra sebum while moisturizing dry parts. It might not be enough if your skin is really dry though.

I know some people will flame me for this, but I don't think there's such a thing, at least not among what you buy OTC at the drug store. I've tried just about every major moisturizer out there, and they all made my acne worse. The only one that was remotely tolderable, was Neutrogena's oil-free moisturizer, but it's pretty light-duty on the moisture as well. I just think that it's in the nature of what a moisturizer does that it will probably make your skin greasier and trap things in your pores. I've given up hope that there is really such a thing as a non-comedogenic moisturizer. Now, I just try to be gentle with the cleansing and try to avoid getting dried out in the first place, and I exfoliate a lot. But, I would still rather have dry skin than acne.

The only thing Emu Oil helped me with was scarring, but it stopped working after a month. Then it broke me out in little tiny bumps all over!! Since then I've gotten bumps on and off, I guess they're called closed comedones..
