Dry Skin

Question: Hi there... I recently saw a dermatologist due to having bad hormonal acne and dark discoloration. She had started me on a regimen which includes using Skinceuticals face wash twice a day, using benzyl peroxide in the morning, and using Retin A at night, as well as starting spirinolactone. I use Cerave Am and PM facial moisturizers. With all of this, I’ve already historically had dry/combination skin, and I don’t think these moisturizers are hydrating my skin enough. My forehead and t-zone feel okay, however my cheeks and around my mouth feel extremely dry and my neck has been itching. I’ve gone down to issuing the benzyl peroxide and retin a only every other day, but still have the dry skin. Is there a moisturizer and or eye cream you would recommend? Thank you!
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend Phyto Plus to add to your regimen on the days that you are not using your benzyl peroxide and your retinol. TheirRenew Overnight Dry will help with your hydration as well and you can apply over your benzyl peroxide as well as your retinol. For day I would recommend their Emollience as your moisturizer. TheirA.G.E. Eye Complex is a wonderful eye cream, for day as well as night. Hoope this helps, have a nice day !Thank you for making Dermstore your #1 source for all things beauty!
