Moisturizing your face is refreshing but also essential to nourish the skin for any skin type, and especially so for oily, acne prone skin types. Oily skin can still be dehydrated even though it contains excess sebum/oil. When a person uses powerful cleansers to remove excess oil, their skin’s natural moisture/hydration is eliminated. It is important to understand that oil and hydration are two different things. Oily skin may lack hydration which will put an extra stress to to the skin and can create more breakouts – therefore the key is to success is to use a good water-based moisturizer that hydrates the skin without making it too oily.
Dr. Wright’s Tip:
If you have oily skin, you really do not want to skip the step of hydrating your skin daily. Drinking water is very important as it helps to flush the body of toxins and the same is true of your skin- but drinking water alone may not hydrate your skin sufficiently.
