It can be hard to love your skin if it is oily and acne-prone, but the one consolation is your skin is less likely to show signs of aging. It may seem counterintuitive, but using a moisturizer is a smart move if your skin is oily or acne-prone.
Importance of Hydrating Oily Skin.
The cause of oily skin is an over-production of sebum. Sebum is produced from the sebaceous glands, which are the oil glands in your body. Oily skin is characterized by shininess, large pores, and a tendency for acne outbreaks.
The skin barrier can become damaged from drying acne products and medications.
You cannot forego hydration if your skin is oily, but you must avoid adding extra oil to it. If you don't give it moisture, your skin can become dry. By skipping the moisturizer, your skin will dry out and, in turn, rebound with more oil production, which can cause more breakouts.
You will want to reach for moisturizers that contain glycerin, hyaluronic acid, aloe, and squalene, which won't trap oils into the pores.
Choosing the Correct Daily Moisturizer for Oily Skin.
The correct daily moisturizer for oily skin will help control the sebum levels without drying out your skin. Many moisturizers for acne-prone skin are fragrance-free and contain chemical-free, non-irritating ingredients, which help reduce the development of long-lasting blemishes that persist after the pimples are gone.
