Is it bad to use vaseline (petroleum jelly) as a nighttime moisturizer? I've read that it is but don't quite understand why. My mom swears by it and I feel like it's the only think that makes my skin feel hydrated.

I have been using jojoba oil but don't feel like it's moisturizing enough. My skin still feels tight & dry and has dry patches. I have used an exfoliant 1x a week for two weeks. Have I not given it enough time? Is it possible that my skin is reacting badly to something rather than being dry? I am so confused about what to do and have had it with the way it feels and looks. I don't think I could afford a dermatologist or what they recommend so any advice is greatly appreciated.

Oh yes, I still need to change to a good, affordable moisturizing face wash - any ideas?
Sid, the reason most people don't use Vaseline on their face is that in most people it brings about pimples. I know what you mean about having dry skin. I had that problem but I found something that is great. I use Nivea creme. You can get it at any pharmacy like rite aid or cvs. Before this I had tried so many other things. This has worked great. As for face wash, I wouldn't know what to recommend. Most of the face washes I have used have made my dry skin worse. Good Luck and I hope I've helped. :wave:
