Dry Skin Acne Moisturizer

Best Acne Moisturizers:

As I mentioned in my review of Best Acne Lotions, there are several different types of acne lotions and acne moisturizers and it is difficult to determine which one is best for your skin type. A moisturizer safe for acne prone skin and one that will help dry skin with acne is particularly difficult to find.  I discovered Clinique’s Moisture Surge a few years ago when my skin started getting a little dry in places and have used it ever since.

In a recent article I wrote for ezineArticles, I talked about how to choose an acne lotion or acne moisturizer.  In the next few articles, I will share with you my favorite products in these categories, as well as tinted moisturizers safe for acne prone skin and a product for mature skin with acne that I rely on.

Kinerase Clear Skin Moisture Light

Kinerase Clear Skin Moisture Light

Kinerase is a brand that is well-known and popular with top skin care salons and cosmetologists.  It is especially good for sensitive and oily skin with acne.  It provides light-weight moisture without clogging pores and while controlling shine. I like the fact that it helps reduce oil production as well and is calming so my skin doesn’t get irritated.

bareMinerals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy Review

bareMinerals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy

I want to do a quick bareMinerals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy review today since it is a product I have used many times in the past and have had great experiences with. While bareMinerals Blemish Therapy is not makeup for acne, it provides a little bit of coverage while helping to heal blemishes, so I have even used it at night to tone down some redness and help heal a blemish. This is a product that does not contain the usual salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide of other acne treatments. Instead, it uses Bare Escentuals’ RareMinerals Complex which contains natural sulfur, a mineral that is both soothing and has some antibacterial properties.

Ingredients to Avoid in Acne Makeup

UPDATE:  Please read this update first before reading the rest of this post.

I recently discovered more information about the list compiled by James Fulton and how that research was done.  My new information comes from Paula Begoun’s book “The Original Beauty Bible“.  She points out that this research was done with much larger concentrations of these ingredients than would ever be used in any makeup product.  What this really means is that we don’t have to be scared off by products that might contain one, or even more,  of the ingredients listed below.  Instead, look at where the ingredient is placed in the list on the product label.  The higher on the list the ingredient is, the higher the concentration in the product.  Therefore, if the second ingredient listed is one of the ‘pore-clogging’ ones below, then it is probably a significant ingredient in that product and is not a great choice.  If it is near the end of the list of ingredients, then you probably do not need to get too concerned.  Alternatively, you can always judge by the way the product feels on your skin.  If it feels too creamy or greasy for you then it probably is.
