Topical acne treatments often use ingredients such as tretinoin (Retin-A), salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and glycolic acid that dry out your skin. The logic stems from the fact that acne-prone skin is often oily and sebum-rich.
The downside of using exfoliating acne products is that your skin can lose its natural ability to retain moisture, causing it to become overly sensitive and reactive. Overt dryness can cause your skin to become dehydrated, itchy, and flaky.
Finding a good moisturizer to use alongside your acne treatments is often difficult because oil-based moisturizers can cause oil glands to become clogged, leading to a resurgence of acne. Fortunately, the folks at Kare MD Skin Health have formulated a ceramide-based moisturizer that is ideal for acne prone skin.
Elevase Moisture Booster contains opti-ceramides that help strengthen your skin’s natural moisture barrier function. Ceramides are naturally-occuring lipids that play an important role in skin physiology. Scientists have confirmed that ceramides are often depleted in dry and sensitive skin.
If you have acne-prone skin or oily skin and want a moisturizer that functions to moisturize and replenish your skin, use Elevase Moisture Booster twice daily on top of your acne regimen. Elevase is ideal for diluting or moisturizing skin that is being treated with Retin-A or other drying retinoids.
For chronically-dry skin, use Elevase Moisture Booster liberally throughout the day. Elevase can replenish moisture levels without clogging pores on the skin.
