Nourish RX is the best water based moisturizer for acne prone skin because of its light-weight formula. Most people who have acne and or oily skin are afraid to use a moisturizer, but using a moisturizer is imperative in order to prevent drying out acne. The consequences of not taking the time to moisturize can make acne worse by trapping the acne under the dry skin. Nourish RX leaves your skin soft, hydrated and nourished without feeling greasy or causing breakouts. Formulated with healing aloe vera and niacinamide, Nourish RX works to calm redness and combat dryness.
Known as Vitamin B3, Niacinamide improves the skin’s barrier and renews and restore’s the surface of skin against moisture loss and dehydration by helping skin improve its natural production of skin-strengthening ceramides.
What Role Does Niacinamide Play In Skincare?
Niacinamide is a b3 vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help minimize enlarged pores, improve skin texture, and strengthen skin. Niacinamide is also wound healing, and will help to fade any post inflammatory erythema left from pesky breakouts.
Aloe Vera is a plant that grows in dry, tropical climates and is best known for its healing properties. Over the years, aloe vera has been known to treat wounds and burns of many types. Aloe Vera is very popular in the beauty industry in lotion formulas, or in a gel form.

I love the feeling of a fluffy moisturizer, and Nourish RX fits the bill. The pump packaging keeps me from overusing the product. Each use leaves my skin feeling like a little dumpling, dewy but not heavy. It is difficult to find a moisturizer that works for am and pm, as many are either too heavy or too light for my dehydrated skin. This fills the void nicely! I can put spf and makeup on top without any hassle.
