        Great question!

        The Photo Plasma is an oil-free moisturizer with an SPF 30 and it should not make your acne worse.

        We do always recommend performing a 3-day patch test to make sure the product is compatible with you skin.

      When I apply to my face it feels very dry I asked the sales woman and she said just put a moisturizer on top of
      It!!!! It sounds to me by reading it that it should make your face feel very moisturized not dry is that correct? Maybe I am using the wrong product for my skin. Thank you for your attention in this matter

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        The Photo Plasma is an oil-free moisturizer and if you have dry skin this may not be the moisturizer for you.

        I recommend the Face Finishing Moisturizer which is quite creamy and hydrating; this moisturizer is typically for normal to dry skin; or if you have extremely dry skin you may be interested in trying our Deep Moisture Therapy.

        I hope this is helpful.

        A:

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        There are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are:

        1. Cleanser
        2. Toner or Serum
        3. Exfoliant
        4. Treatment
        5. Moisturizer

        The High Potency Amine Face Lift (Step 4) is a treatment and should be applied only in the AM prior to moisturizer. Photo Plasma (Step 5) is a daytime moisturizer and should be applied after your treatment.

        I hope this is helpful.

        No, none of Dr. Perricone's products will clog your pores.

        The Photo Plasma an oil-free moisturizer with an SPF30; extremely lightweight in texture, it glides on skin smoothly and evenly, leaving it soft, hydrated and radiant. Formulated with powerful anti-aging benefits and mineral sunscreens, it derives its natural color from antioxidant-rich, Astaxanthin. No tackiness or heaviness.

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        To help with symptoms of rosaea here is what we recommend:

        Nutritive Cleanser a cleanser and toner in one. Formulated as a mild cleansing product, it is suitable for all skin types, though especially recommended for normal and dry skin. Alpa lipoic acid helps to prevent the appearance of redness and blotchiness sometimes associated with the use of harsh cleansers.

        Advanced Face Firming Activator provides immediate improvement to the appearance of skin's resilience, tone and texture. Alpha Lipoic Acid and glycolic acid reduce pore size and speed up cell renewal, while reducing the appearance of scarring and discolorations in the skin. Use before your moisturizer and sunscreen. (AM treatment)

        Concentrated Restorative Treatment helps resurface skin's texture to reveal a more radiant and healthy looking skin. It helps diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It provides maximum levels of antioxidant therapy during the evening restoration period, evens out imperfections, and promotes a healthier, more resilient skin.

        Face Finishing Moisturizer a light moisturizer that provides advanced moisturization and antioxidant protection for all skin types. Helps to smooth lines and wrinkles and enhance collagen production. Can be used AM and PM over treatments or alone.

        These supplements can also be helpful:
        Skin and Total Body supplements
        Omega 3 supplements

        Your Finacea gel and Tretinoin cream should be applied after cleansing then follow with AM treatment (Advanced Face Firming Activator) and the Face Finishing Moisturizer is always applied last.

        In the evening the same order follows, this time you are applying the PM treatment (Concentrated Restorative cream) and the Face Finishing Moisturizer is always applied last.

        I hope this is helpful.

        Since you have sensitive skin I recommend Dr. Perricone's sensitive skin care line called the Hypoallergenic Collection; within this line there is a moisturizer called the Hypoallergenic Nourishing Moisturizer.

        The Hypoallergenic Nourishing Moisturizer is a gentle, nourishing and anti-aging moisturizer formulated for sensitive skin. With Olive Polyphenols, Neuropeptides and Tocotrienols.

    • Q:

      Why would you use this and then follow with no foundation foundation? They both have 30SPF?
      Asked on 1/29/2015 by Peanut from Cincinnati, OH

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        Since they both contain an SPF 30, then I recommend applying the No Foundation Foundation over a basic moisturizer (without the sunscreen); like the Face Finishing Moisturizer.

        However, if you desire to have additional SPF protection it would be perfectly fine to wear both the Photo Plasma and the No Foundation Foundation; its personal preference.

        I hope this is helpful.

        Have a nice day!

    At first I was a little put off by the color but this is the ONLY sunscreen that didnt break me out, didnt run and didnt make my pores feel clogged by the end of the day. I freakin' love this stuff!! I'm very fair and not once have I burned with this on, as with most other sunscreens. Its long wearing and somehow makes my skin look just more even and better.

    I wish this didn't irritate my skin, because the finish isn't oily like other sunscreens. It feels nice to apply, and leaves a not-oily but not-too-matte finish- it's perfect. However, each time I used it, my skin broke out with small blemishes. I even tested it a few times just to make sure it was the Photo Plasma and not another product. Really disappointed as now I can't even use it!

    First Moisturizer I have ever been able to wear!

    By Susan

    from Alabama

    About Me Beauty Conscious

    Pros

    • Lightweight
    • Moisturizes

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Daily Use

      I love this moisturizer. It is the first one I have ever been able to wear that doesn't irritate my skin or cause it to break out. At work, I have had several co-workers tell me that my face just has a wonderful glow and then they ask me what makeup I wear. I have worn the same makeup for years - and I never received any complements. Since I have added photo plasma to my routine, I continue to receive complements on how good my skin looks. I cannot even tell that I have any moisturizer on because it is not heavy or greasy. I just love it!
