Mineral oil skin moisturizer

Common Questions and Answers about Mineral oil skin moisturizer


Avatar f tn You should apply a moisturizer within three to five minutes of washing to lock moisture in. Your moisturizer should be rich in ceramides, dimethicone, glycerine, hyaluronic acid, mineral oil and petroleum jelly. Drink plenty of water. Eat omega 3 foods like salmon, flax, walnuts and safflower oil. If the symptoms are severe consult a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn You want to seal it in, not out, so the best time to do so is while your skin is moist from the shower. One trick for really dry skin is mineral oil applied to wet skin in the shower (after you turn off the water of course!) It will spread easily and in a thin coat, then gently blot yourself with a towel. BTW, baby oil is just mineral oil with fragrance in it.
Avatar m tn My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.
Avatar f tn This helps is soaking the oil and helps in peeling away the blackheads. If benzoyl peroxide leaves your skin dry, apply an oil-free moisturizer after 10 mins of applying benzoyl peroxide. If the symptoms still persist then please consult a dermatologist. Topical and oral antibiotics may be needed. Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn redness (especially on both cheeks and jawline), very dry, painful to touch and flaring up when I attempt to put on moisturizer (Neutrogena oil-free, at that), and slight swelling all around, especially underneath my eyes. The thing is, I don't know exactly why this is happening. A few weeks ago, I was advised to use a salicylic acid cleanser to help with my sensitive, heavily acne-prone and scarred face; I did.
Avatar n tn A good natural oil that will help repair traumatised and damaged skin and also fade scarring is JOJOBA OIL. This oil is easily absorbed by the skin and because it resembles the skin's natural oil (sebum) regulates the skin's oil production and so is very suitable for all skin types. The beauty of this oil (and it is often termed a 'beauty oil') is that it will repair and build the outer layer of skin over time and thus make it less thin, fragile and sensitive.
Avatar n tn I found a product called Lacrilube, which has mineral oil in it, that I use when I have times of really dry eyes, then at night I use Clinique's All about Eyes to moisturize and during the day a cream from Clinique for dark circles. It seems to do okay for now, but I'm not sure it's really moisturizing like I need it to prevent that dryness. I just started trying the entire facial cleansing line from Clinique and I've always been using their eye products.
Avatar m tn However for such kind of skin since you have stopped the application of steroid cream, wear cotton clothes and apply a mild hypoallergenic moisturizer. The skin should heal with time. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
Avatar n tn It soothes at least and it hasn't spread to the other eye, but this is the worst outbreak yet, goes pretty far down, my friend said I look like someone hit me in the eye. I have found like vaseline or products with mineral oil to be great short term but more drying in the long run. I was thinking I was allergic to my hair die or something like that, but reading this forum I realize it is yet another symptom of yeast that I have been fighting for years.
Avatar n tn You can also add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil or jojoba oil. I itch less if my skin isn't so dry. Try going as long as possible without shaving your legs. For some reason the hair on the legs helps hold in the moisture. Or, at least it seems that way with me.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar f tn All over the bearded part of my face, what appeared to be sacs of hardened oil under the surface of the skin had been forming nodules. These didn’t get infected, each just grew larger. Over the years I’ve seen dermatologists who said, because of my otherwise great health, “you’re just a middle aged adolescent,” blaming it on high testosterone, etc. The apparent acne problem continued and worsened.
Avatar n tn I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
Avatar m tn I did the thyroid tests and was a bit low but thyroid meds didn't stop the itch nor did primrose oil or omega oils, anithistimines, or any nutrition type rememdies. It wasn't dry skin either as I tried loads of different lotions and cremes, not sun exposure or any other thing I could find on the net that seemed to help other people. My doctor is a woman but she'd never encountered this in her practice and recommended a dermatologist. He took biopsies and found nothing.
Avatar f tn beeswax melted together) Put it on after your shower when your skin will absorb it best. Bio oil is expensive and is a mineral oil and similar to baby oil but about 100 times more expensive (marketing and advertising costs!). Try keep away from foods and drink that will dehydrate you (salty and sugary foods mainly) I'm 33.5 weeks and have no stretch marks and I know I'm prone to them as I have them on my hips from puberty. They don't go away so prevention is the only way!
Avatar n tn Baby oil is OK as a moisturizer on your shaft, but don't use it on the areas where you get this rash. BTW, baby oil is nothing more than mineral oil with fragrance added, so if you don't want the "baby" smell you can get mineral oil, which is odorless, in the drug store.
Avatar f tn I went to a local natural grocers and they recommended mother's special blend with almond oil, coconut oil, mineral oil and vitamin e...
Avatar n tn I use Cetaphil cleanser for my face, body, and Cetaphil moisturizer for my face, but want to know what kinds of concealer and foundation is the best for my sensitive skin. What kind of ingredients should I look for? Water based stuff? How about these Mineral makeups? Basically, any particular brands that you recommend? I need to wear makeup to even out my skin tone (gets reddish and broken out on occasion too) Also, I get cyst like acne behind my ears frequently.
1511123 tn?1290120720 Besides a quality facial cleanser, facial toners (such as Neutrogena's Alchohol-Free Toner) and a super light moisturizer (Oil of Olay or Boots is good) should be used during the daytime regimen. Prior to applying makeup, it truly helps to use a primer (Mac has a good one!). Avoid using makeup with sunscreen, which can add to shininess. If you need sunscreen, Skinceuticals recently introduced a new sunsreen - amazingly light! - that you apply prior to your normal moisturizer.
Avatar f tn I had good luck with Aveeno acne products, particularly the moisturizer for acne-prone skin. Make sure you get that one because it looks just like the one for normal skin. They also have cleansers, but I had good luck with Neutrogena facial cleanser - just the regular glycerin one. The acne one is really drying. You can try using white vinegar or Bragg's apple cider vinegar as an astringent, but if it is too drying you can dilute it with water. It can cause temporary redness.
Avatar n tn It works temporarily if i don't use sunscreen or any other moisturizer. The minute I startr to use it again, it shows up on my checks again. I have tried different moisturizers, still the same reaction. IT started when I started using was youthful essence and sheer cover mineral face powder. Please help i just need these to go away.
Avatar f tn Can mineral oil and mixing baking soda burn your skin?? I used it twice and my sklin is red and irritated?? What can I use to stop the burning?? Help!!
Avatar m tn I recently switched from a face lotion that I have used for a few years now, because I just noticed it has mineral oil in it, which I read isn't good for your face because it causes blocked pores. So after doing some research, I switched to a moisturizer that doesn't have any oil in it. The product I used before was "Jergens natural glow" and has the following active ingredients : water, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol. mineral oil, cetearth-20, and so on.
2089349 tn?1332714878 I am also using baby oil or mineral oil as my primary moisturizer. During Round 1, I found out about vegetable glycerin late in the game and used that as a moisturizer. My skin really suffered because I did not know what was safe to use with HCG. Another change I instituted this round was I also tired a little coconut oil during my last gorge day. I was told it helps burn fat and I had a nice first day weight loss of three pounds. I am also told some take coconut oil during Phase 2.
492921 tn?1321293496 Use a moisturizer (an oil-free, non pore clogging type such as Neutrogena Daily moisturizer or Cetaphil moisturizer) even if your face is oily. Don't wash your face more than twice a day. Use a clean towel everytime you pat your face dry. Change your pillow case every few days. Don't touch your face any more than you have to - the oils from your hands, even if your hands feel dry, are bad for your face. Use high-quality make-up.
248382 tn?1274942234 Still the itch is constant. Also, itching ear is now infected again. I have used mineral oil for the itching ear & take tylenol for the ****ing pain. Will call Doc tomorrow. RAsh is on calves, upper back & is starting at outside corner of left Now all the b******g is done, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE AND MAY WE ALL GET WELL!!!!!
Avatar n tn You have probably noticed that with most soaps and washes available in the market, it is difficult to remove all the oil on the skin without over-drying or irritating it. I would also always feel an oily residue especially round the T zone (middle forehead to nose and chin). A lot of what you try even leaves a waxy feeling. That contributes to blocking the pores and causing breakouts in many people.
Avatar f tn He prescribed griseofulvin and Ketoconazole shampoo and cream. I use eucerin on her skin. I was using tea tree oil, but he recommended using nothing. Her hair is dry and she has patches on her head,and she constantly scratches her scalp. she also has bumps that reappear. I keep her hair braided. There is flaking behind her ears. and she has red and itchy bumps that comes between her legs and her bottom she is about to start school and i will like to keep it under control.
910870 tn?1243173491 like maybe 5 or more times a day, not specific ones for stretch marks, just anything i happened to stumble upon that was a good moisturizer. it worked needless to say but i still got a couple. but some that i had before her like on my legs an stuff have gotten darker. what im looking for is something, one thing, that will do the job. prevent them an even make the ones i did manage to get get a little lighter, less noticable..does anyone kno of such a thing??
