Many assume that you should not use moisturizers if you have rashes or acne prone skin. But that’s not true, you just need to use the right type!
Not all moisturizers are created equally and using the wrong type can send your skin to a downward spiral. To help you keep your skin hydrated while fighting acne, here are some excellent ones that will do wonders
1. Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Gel $ 14.50
This moisturizer is made specifically for oily skin, prone to acne and has actually used it! I have known many others who also swear by this moisturizer, as it is ideal for moisturizing without making your skin more oily than it already is.
2. Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion $ 17.99
This moisturizer was formulated to keep irritation at bay, thanks to its essential oil content, as it contains witch hazel and lemon grass as well as salicylic acid. Burt’s Bees products are also known to be very natural and non-toxic, so this is a great choice for lovers of organic beauty.
3. CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion $ 12.74
This moisturizer includes SPF 30, which will keep you protected from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. This formula does not contain oil, so it will not cause the pores to become clogged further with excess oil and also includes an anti-inflammatory agent, niacinamide.
4. Eucerin Calming Cream Daily Moisturizer $ 0.99
If you have sensitive skin and need to use only the mildest moisturizers available, try Eucerin! I love Eucerin as it is very relaxing, contains no fragrance, and is not comedogenic. It also contains oatmeal, which is a great natural sedative for acne. It also happens to be a month of oatmeal, so this is the perfect time to celebrate this product.
5. Fresh Oil-free Umbrian Clay Lotion $ 39.00
Clay is an excellent natural remedy for acne as it helps to absorb excess oil that clogs the pores. The product is also filled with cucumber extract, which helps to relieve inflammation and more extracts than I can list.
6. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion $ 26.50
This moisturizer is oil free, essential for anyone with acne prone skin, and contains Vitamin E, cylindrical root extract and antarcticine to help soothe irritated skin and cure any defects.
7. EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46 $ 22.50
I can not emphasize enough sun protection! This formula contains SPF 46, which gives you one of the highest levels of protection available. It is free of oil and is made specifically for sensitive and troublesome skin. This product is ideal for the layer with another moisturizer, as it is technically a facial sunscreen and does not give your skin the nutritional properties it needs on the hydration side of things.
