Anti blemish base lotion

Hi everyone I'm new here so please bear with me as I might end up being very long winded!!  I started using ygs products recently. The spf moisturisers absolutely great, love the fact that I don't have to use a separate suncream.  I just started adding in the concentrate and anti blemish lotion to the routine as well. My question was, can the anti blemish lotion cause dry flaky skin and if so should I use it less often? I've got patches of dry skin on both corners of my mouth which I think might be because of this.  Also are people using this all over their face on just on spots?  Is it better to use at night or daytime??  Again sorry for rambling on so much, looking forward to some feedback😀😀

Hi @Zeeskin and welcome to the community.

I haven’t heard of anyone getting dry skin because of the anti blemish lotion, but of course it’s possible.  This lotion is used all over the face and can be used morning and/or night. 

@Zeeskin thought this might be some useful info for you.  It’s for the anti acne base lotion and includes directions.  Looks like it can cause drying, maybe only start with the one application.

Good luck 😊

Thanks for the advice Sai👍  I'm only using this once a day and will probably stick to that.  im also using a glycolic acid toner but not at the same time.  Is it possible I'm using too many products??

@Zeeskin Maybe you could use it every other day so your skin can get used to the product. When your skin will be used to the product and you won't get any reactions you can slowly start by using it daily. This might help to get your skin slowly used to the new products.

I would suggest the same.  Maybe Bex has some helpful tips as well for you.

You’re welcome @Zeeskin I think you’ll be fine if you just stick to the once a day with the base lotion for starters....I don’t think the glycolic acid will cause excess drying.  Like the YGS directions above say, start with one application because excessive drying may occur.

@Zeeskin Toners can dry out your skin so if your skin is becoming too dry then I would suggest stopping using that to see if that improves the dryness.

That's true.  I normall never use toners because of this reason.  However, I actually started using the glycolic toner about a month before starting the ygs concentrate and didn't have a problem at all.  In fact it actually made my skin look so much healthier!!
