Does it make sense to leave oily skin alone? Most oily skin people feel that adding a moisturiser to their skincare routine will only exacerbate their skin problems. So should you skin the moisturizing step of their skincare regimen before applying makeup?
According to Sterling Minerals, the answer is sometimes confusing. Simply put «skin always needs to be moisturized, especially oily skin, and we’ll explain why.»
The word «oil» found anywhere in an ingredient list can cause some to freak out. But the good news is certain oils in skincare products are not the enemy to oily skin. Although it sounds contradictory to apply a moisturizer to oily skin, especially one that may contain oils, the fact is, it actually will help reduce sebum production and give skin a better texture with the proper use of certain types of oils.
Most women who think it makes their oily skin worse or increases their acne, which is typically a side effect of oily skin, only need help understanding how and what a moisturizer actually is. Oily skin also tends to be thicker than normal and has larger pores. Faces with this skin type can literally look like an oil slick within an hour or so after washing.
Some women think cleansing is the only answer, and this is great for removing excess oil, debris and grime from the face, but over cleansing will strip the skin whereby creating the cycle of the face producing more oil to compensate. Moisturizing the face is not just for normal to dry skin types, but is for all.
