Use non-comedogenic products

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for writing to us on HCM.
Use of cosmetics like Olay day and night cream can often to clogging of pores and thus lead to type of acne called acneiform eruptions.
Acneiform eruptions can be treated by applying topical medications like clindamycin, benzoyl peroxide or retinoids like adapalene/tretinoin.
As of now I would suggest you to avoid any further use of Olay products.
For regular use you can use dermatologically tested products like Cetaphil cleansing lotion and Restyane day and Night cream.
Let me know if you require any more assistance from my side.
Thank you
