Can you recommend a night cream for oily / combination acne prone skin? Which night cream available in the Indian market is good for acne prone skin?
For oily /combination skin that is not prone to breakouts, Elovera IMF (Intense Moisturizing Formula) fits the bill. Elovera IMF is a rich night cream with lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, allantoin and vitamin E. If you can tolerate a bit of thick cream-like feeling on your skin at night, Elovera IMF cream has all the moisturizing and skin rejuvinating ingredients a good night cream should have. You can find Elovera IMF at medical stores. It also comes in a lighter version called just Elovera (without IMF), but that does not contain hyaluronic acid. Elovera IMF may also work for acne prone skin that is receiving acne treatments.
Elovera IMF is a good night cream for young skin that does not want to incorporate anti-aging creams into the routine just yet. It exfoliates and lightens pigmentation on the skin, creating a brighter look.
For oily skin that is prone to breakouts, Retino-A or Glyco 6 are good options. Both these help greatly with breakouts and dark spots and have anti-aging benefits, but you need to read how to use Glyco 6 and Retino-A first. Yugard is a retinol cream that is a milder alternative to Retino-A and is regularly prescribed by dermatologists.
If the idea of using heavy duty treatments like Retino-A or Glyco 6 scares you, start small with Aroma Magic Hydro Gel, which is a moisturizing gel formula with lactic acid. It is a decent option if you are looking for simple moisturizing and do not want to use anti-aging night creams just yet. It is not guaranteed non-comedogenic, so for acne prone skin, do a patch test on part of the face before using it all over.
Before selecting a night cream, consult this master list of comedogenic face creams in India.
I have mild to moderate acne and combination skin. If I use yugard as a night cream then what is a good face wash and moisturiser, sunscreen to use along with it. Your review mentions that glycolic and salyic acid products should not be used along with it.
iam using streak c10 serum at night.is it ok to use elovera imf on top of it?will the ingredients deactivate vitamin c ?
when u use vit c serum dont use any other products with it…if u saw dryness then wash ur face with cetaphil cleansing lotion then apply serum..its recommend to use a good face wash like kaya soothing gel before washing ur face with cetaphil beacuse cetaphil cant cleanse dirt and sunscreen
