Started 1262639210 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1262808280 by iachick
What can I put on my face to heal this chapping?? It is worse around my mouth. I put on Dr.Denese day cream earlier and it felt like I was on fire.
Had to grab a cold washcloth and get it off!!!

Hi,
I think that all of the Dr. D products contain treatment ingredients.
If you can stay in, out of the wind, I'd use plain petrolium jelly to treat the chapped areas. I'd pat it on the affected areas. Some other ladies may suggest Crisco. If you have Sweet Almond Oil, that would be great. It can be purchased at any whole foods stores.
I would not use any moisurizer that contains fragrance or any medication.
I would use olive oil to remove any make-up from your area. Actually, Olive oil might also treat the area. Then follow with the petrolium jelly.
The only thing else I can think of would be a plain, shea butter product. If you have a tin of shea, you could pat that on.
I'd try oils or the petrolium jelly and remove any or all of those if it stings.
I do know to pat, pat, pat.
Hope this helps. I'm very sure that the other ladies on this forum will have some additional ideas!
Take care,
Emy

vegetable CRISCO (not kidding) used in hospitals on burn patients.
edited to add: that petroleum jelly does not let moisture in. that's why i would not use it on my babies "burned/rashy" bottom. crisco worked.
PURE LANOLIN is good too. :) if it works on dry, chapped nipp|es it will work great on a chappy face.

I love Witch Hazel for any irritations. It is very soothing and healing.

Do you have any jojoba oil? I find that to be soothing.
Another product that I find to be very moisturizing and soothing is Atopalm MLE cream. I don't know if you have any of that on hand but you may want to look into it for the future. I have sensitive skin and it really helps moisturize my skin and calms down any irritation I may have.

#1 witch hazel
#2 baby lotion
#3 Dr. Denese Hydrating face serum - the best!!!!

Oh no! I am sorry that happened to you!
If you have any Emu oil, it is absolutely the best thing for any type of burn.
If you don't have any of that, then a cool cloth, and some aloe vera might help.
I would only put something on it that has as few ingredients as possible.

I agree. Go to your local pharmacy and seek out the product used by mommies new to breastfeeding to soothe their painful nipples. Probably in the baby aisle. I believe it is a lanolin product as well.

Baby lotion or Paula's Choice moisturizer. Witch hazel can irritate some skin and dry it out even more than it already is. You need something gentle and soothing. I've also had some nasty burning with aloe vera, also.

How about neosporin? It will with helping retaining the moisture on the skin, calm the skin down, and prevent inflammation...

Do you have any oils such as jojoba, sweet almond or squalane. They'll help in no time.
If you have olive oil in the house I would use that until the burn calms down. I wouldn't chance putting any chemicals on your skin for now.
I hope you feel better.

I never recommend the above due to it having neomycin in it which can cause sudden reactions even for those who have never had a reaction using the product before.

Have the vaseline on now.......I haven't been able to get out of the house today because my teddy bear Hubby is sick. He's such a baby...LOL. Anyway.....where do I find Emu oil or Sweet Almond Oil? I live in a small town, but frequent larger areas 2-3 times a week.
You ladies are so helpful. :-x

You can get Sweet Almond Oil from a whole foods store. Actually, you can probably get it from a large grocery store. I'd call first, before I go back into the wind.
But, I just got in from my shift at the YMCA preschool and I asked the nurse what you should do. She said petroleum jelly would be the best product for you to use at this time, when the area or areas are very irritated and burning.
Also, the nurse said that you need to keep those areas covered, as with a scarf, if you must leave the home. Also, apply the petroleum jelly. If you must go out of the house, you can use some sterile gauze or open some gauze pads and put just one layer of that sterile material over the petroleum jelly, so you won't stick to your scarf!
I was glad to help you and you are very welcome!

Aquaphor was recommended for the severe irritation and burning from topical chemo-worked.

I love a product called "Foille". It is really good for a burn.

My derm recommended Aquaphor and it really is a little miracle. You can get it at any drugstore. Some people think it's the same as vaseline, but it's not. Hope your skin feels better soon!

Vaseline. Used to use it on the kids faces when they came in with red cheeks. Heals the skin fast.

KatherineW126275319428130 PostsRegistered 3/16/2009Alabamian by Birth; Southern By The Grace of God
Update: I couldn't find any Vaseline in the house yesterday so I smeared Lip Balm over chapped areas and borrowed some Vaseline from my SIL and it helped a lot. I ran to the store this am and got my own Vaseline and used it. I feel better already.
I am telling you.....that Dr. Denese Firming Facial Pad almost killed me early yesterday morning. I am sure that made the chapping much worse than it ordinarily would have been.
New Question.....when do you think it is safe to return to my Retin A....Dr. Denese skin care routine??
