Petroleum Jelly on Face
I have dry skin type, and for the past year acne-prone skin too. At the night time, my routine is washing my face with cetaphil gentle cleanser. Alternate nights, I use a chemical exfoliater. Followed by, moisturiser (neutrogena oil-free sensitive skin moisturiser). I also use Vaseline on my lips and sometimes next to my nostrils as that area becomes very dry depending on the weather. I was wondering if it is okay to take a little bit of Vaseline and massage it on my face as an end step for moisturization? Is it something that can cause breakouts, as I have been getting mild acne? I've read conflicting things on the net, so thought would ask. Thank you.

Hello Vaseline is basically emollient which seals the moisture in the skin and if you have increased sebaceous activity as you are describing as breakouts, there are chances of you getting breakout after applying Vaseline As your skin seems like combination skin,  a proper CTM routine might work Using moisturiser immediately after chemical exfoliator would actually reduce the effectiveness of chemical exfoliator itself
