If you have oily skin, you may well have thought that you don’t need to moisturise.
In actual fact, moisturising is one of the best things you can do for oily skin types.
Here’s a heads up from VeryWell.com…
Even Oily Skin Can Benefit From Added MoistureE
Even if you have oily skin, you can still benefit from the use of a daily moisturiser. And, no, moisturisers don’t have to leave your skin feeling greasy and looking shiny. The trick is in finding the right product.
Moisturisers are used to improve skin’s hydration (think water-content of the skin, not oil-content). They work by slowing the evaporation of water from the skin, helping to keep skin hydrated. Moisturising creams and lotions reduce moisture loss and increase water content of the epidermis.
Moisturising products aren’t just for, well, moisturising. They also form a protective barrier on the skin’s surface and give the skin a soft, smooth feel.
Moisturisers Help Keep Acne Treatments From Drying You Out
Moisturisers become especially important if you are using drying acne treatments such as Retin-A, isotretinoin (AKA Accutane), or benzoyl peroxide.
Don’t underestimate how drying acne treatments can be! Even if your skin normally pumps out the oil, acne medications can quickly take your skin from shiny to uncomfortably dry, peeling, and flaking.
Using a moisturiser daily is the best defence to help ease these side effects.
Moisturisers Don’t Have to Be Heavy or Greasy
There are many moisturising products that are created especially for oily skin types. These products are light, fast absorbing, and don’t leave your skin feeling like an oil slick.
So, don’t be afraid to moisturize your oily skin! Take the time to choose the right moisturizer by reading ingredient labels and asking your dermatologist or esthetician for recommendations. Experiment with different products until you find the one that is perfect for you.
