What is a good moisturizer for dry skin and acne?

Hi Dr i am 29 and my skin is very dry and nowadays i apply moisture and that onwards pimpiles(ACNE) are coming pls tell me what type of moisturiser will you suggest

For that tough situation with dry skin and acne, I really recommend the SkinCeuticals Vitamin B5 Hydrating Gel.  It hydrates well without adding oil or clogging pores.  If you’re still dry after that, use the gel as a base and try the Cellex-C Sea Silk Oil-Free Moistuizer over it.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
